Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.

Anyone get reverse jet lag? I've been flying Mon-Thursday coast to coast for the past 3 years.. that when I get the random WFH week, my sleep schedule is totally screwed up more than normal.
I hate the city I live in but I love my agency. Since we’ve been wfh for months (and it looks like the rest of the year) I want to ask if I can continue to work remote so I can move somewhere I’m happy. Thoughts on how to approach management?
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
Conference call bingo - my board is almost full and it’s only day one wfh and the work day is still young 😅
@ KMPG PPL. I just accepted an offer to start in Nov. is there a date to go back in the office?And once everyone is back is wfh still going to be a thing partially? Wondering if I should invest in a desk and a good chair.
Previously burnout but now recovered from wfh. Unsure if I should still quit since most of my friends are gone Background: -homegrown senior and have received early promotion (Cont.)

What are some signs to help evaluate the actual WLB at a company? Seems harder now that everything is remote

👋🏼 A little WFH cuteness
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
Feeling that people are optimistic that pandemic will end around the summer. I have been working from home since pandemic and really don’t want to go back to office ...wanted to do a survey here. What is your firm’s policy on remote working after pandemic?
Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)
This one goes out to all the goodboyes 🐶 barking in the back of conference calls for the WFH people
Got an offer from uber. Taking a pay cut on the base side but compensated with the equity portion where it is a little lower in aggregate than my current salary. Thoughts?
I blasted someone on Facebook. For posting the same dumb memes about covid19. Honestly, when we have so many new yorkers dying, it’s getting old.
I work in a Rep Services Call Center for an Insurance/ Investment Company.

I'd like to hear about good experiences and bad experiences people have had in this industry, where did you start, how did you grow from there, what licenses do you have, ect.

"Before making fun of what I say, watch this video with completely irrational baseless claims that's been debunked by pretty much every news station and the government." - this is the state of our Union 🙃
I hate that all of the conference rooms in our office aren’t fully soundproof. Makes trying to take recruiter calls / video interview later etc. very hard lol

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
I have an incoming interview for a bizops role and they will test sql, what should I prepare? I only know very basic sql and they will have a sql case study. Does anyone have an example or some material that I can study for a few days?

Pre-covid: I travel with edibles and take them every morning before going to the office. During covid- I wake and bake.
Me: Can I have some data? Client: No. Client (1 week later): I see no traction here. Me: Bursts into flames.
I think it’s time to consider demolishing and rebuilding LAX. When it takes 30 minutes to get to the drop off curb on a Sunday morning, start over
I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.
I’m trying to figure out what my in hand paycheck would be after all the ore tax deductions (benefits, 401K, etc) when I work in NYC and live in NJ. Is there a calculator that can help with this?
