Deloitte is work from home flexible for the foreseeable future. 30-50 percent colocating. What are other firms doing?
First day as scrum master and for a new team, any tips? I’m not used to gathering a team that’s 100% remote and am trying to figure out creative ways to get the team engaged.
Any tips on working out before work and healthy eating/weight loss. I switched from OTF after work and got a peloton but have found I am not nearly as motivated. I thought I could work out on my lunch since I am WFH but it’s just not happening and then I’m tired after work plus CPA. My nutrition has also gone out the window so I really need any tips I can get as I just am not feeling good.
For those who do not wish to submit to compulsory vaccination and weekly testing, when do you plan on having that tough conversation with your partner? As RSM just announced it will comply with the Presidents order, do we wait or do we have the conversation now?
I interned and started my career all within the confines of quarantine. Any tips for standing out when all you’ve known is remote work?
My lease for a decent 1BR in LIC was $2350/month. Without the COVID discount, it is increasing to $2640/month. Thoroughly enjoyed living here, should I suck it up and stay? My new role will also be perma remote in NY area so was considering moving a bit more suburb near the area if the rent could be drastically reduced.
Any recommendations for a portable second monitor? Ideally something that would fit in a carry-on? Since I’m still WFH, I’m taking a week-long trip to visit my sister. We’ll both be working during the week and I’d like to avoid working only from a laptop if I can.
What is Ropes & Gray doing with its wfh/flexible arrangement when attorneys do go back to offices?
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
My team is hiring a Manager for our global learning and development team. This role will have high visibility as it will manage and lead our high potential leadership program.

What firms support international remote work?
I see a lot of posts of overworked people here but anyone underworked too now that we are remote? Anyone working just 2/3 hours a day and still getting great feedback?
I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?
I’m working from Mexico by using my laptop to remote into my desktop at home in the states. Simple trick but I’m really proud of myself. I now can work internationally from wherever I want.
Any budget friendly WFH chair recommendations? Was looking at a gaming chair, but bad reviews have put me off.

Anyways, after MD interview I hear back they want to offer me C level. I told them no, and to check if they would reconsider. WTF happened?Accenture

Compliance attorneys what do you do? I see postings for this and am wondering what day to day is
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
Wasup 🐟 fam. Congrats to me. Finally got an offer after a somewhat long 3 mo search. Effectively doubled my total comp and role is a perfect fit for me. You guys kept me going when I was down. 🙏🏽
Anyone take courses/get a degree from Harvard Extension School? Experience? Was it worth it? Are you also able to build a network? Realize it’s not like an MBA, but that doesn’t fit my life now .
What’s the difference in severity between messing up enough to get rolled off a project and enough to be put on a performance improvement plan?
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
Someone sent me a copy of their resume and I know there test scores are inflated. It’s not my resume so I don’t care what they do but curious about how inflated test scores are detected when applying

How close in style are the ISC2 official study guide practice questions to the actual exam? I feel like I’ve read a lot about how the CISSP has a confusing questions structure. But I find the practice questions really easy and I’m scoring >90%. Is this providing a false sense of security?
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
