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.
Hey Microsoft 🐠 what’s the thinking around remote work going forward? I don’t live in WA or Charlotte, is that an issue?
Looking for freelance Mid/Sr AD. My GCD asking me to throw a few books on their desk by Tues. Gig will be 2-3 months, remote. PM a book if you’re interested.
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
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 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 😅
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
@ 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
what if we find out this wfh thing is better than traveling and going to the office? THEN WHAT DO WE DO?
Once the dust settles post COVID what do you think the hybrid model will look like for most companies with number of days in office vs remote each week?
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?
Planning a weekend getaway for my aunt’s birthday this year. She would like something local and a bit remote to allow lots of reflection/meditation. What local areas do you recommend? I’m in DC/MD.
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!!
Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.

Best SPG in SoHo or Chelsea?
Recent graduate (class of 21) from the UW business school. I came across an open FT associate position at Strategy&’s deal strategy team and was wondering if anyone from S& would be willing to chat? I’m really passionate about consulting and have a major interest in the PE vertical so this was a huge surprise. I’ve been prepping for a couple of months now and would really appreciate the help/opportunity! Would send over credentials but not sure how! PwC Thanks!

Has anyone here dealt with adult ADHD? I have a few coping mechanisms that allow me to be high functioning but def deal with insecurities seeing my peerset so on the ball. Curious if any of us have dealt with mental health issues.
Hey guys. I’m a functional lead/PMO specialist with D for the last 6 years. What are some roles at FAANG that I can target for with skills acquired in my current role?
Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
Has anyone butchered a case interview, recovered from it, and have gotten the job? If so, how did you recover from it? Any advice for those who are scared shitless of case interviews?
Anyone else getting hit up by Charles Aris about the GLG strategy role? I know at least 10 people at my firm that had a call with them but they're being super squirrelly about the details.
I heard a rumor that some partners at MBB firms (and maybe other consulting firms, too?) can hold a plane. Is there any truth to this? I know our partners’ connections are strong, but that is one crazy ask….
I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)

All my H1B friends, wondering if you guys went through a transfer/extension recently and if yes, the timeline for the process and if you received an rfe or not?
Some savage ripped the crossword answer sheet out of my in-flight mag. How am I supposed to know what "to go, say" is alluding to without talking to the guy next to me in the nascar jacket
How do people feel about this? Last time I checked, snitches get stitches. But at this point there is more at stake? Coronavirus lockdown: Would you report people who break the rules? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-52525463
