I had to work from home one month between office leases. Least efficient month of my career. I'm too easily distracted. I think some thrive and others (like me) suck at WFH.

You’re right FP1. It’s not for everyone. It takes a lot of self discipline. The best ones at it are so good it becomes part-time hours. Not me. I need to get out of the house .

Are you kidding? I love it. I am more efficient. I gave my to do list the night before. I send out my assistant to do the night before so she can begin working on it first thing. I come in on Fridays and unless I have to meet a client there. I meet clients for coffee, network etc.

I find it tough to work from home as well. Only do Fridays.

Am I missing something? There are no interruptions with idle office gossip, save on commute time, dressing up, and gas. By 11AM, I am finished. I hate going to office. Manager likes to hear himself talk 🤦‍♀️😂

WFH would never work for me; you’re not the only one...

FaceTime with other people at the company or BD. Share successes, losses, personal etc.. just as you would in the office. It’s the same thing and keeps away the “missing out” feeling.

I am expecting some EPAMer will respond. 1) Does EPAM Anywhere reimburse internet charges additionally? 2) How tough are client interviews? 3) I heard first month you get full salary. How's that possible if a person will be on bench? 4)Do you get laptop from project client? 5)How true is relocation buzz? 6)Can you brief about appraisal/promotion assessment? What's the process? How tough is it? Thanks

Have competing offers from EY and KPMG UK Economic advisory teams( Manager/Snr Exec level). KPMG's UK technical rep and comp offer is better, but the hours appear longer. EY UK Director has had several calls selling culture (diversity and work life balance). Is there actually a substantive emphasis on this by EY? Or are 50+ hour weeks quite common? I suspect it's going to be quite team dependent/ project dependent, and therefore a gamble in any case. Thanks for any perspectives.
