I have an interview next week and want to vet the new law firm with questions to determine if there’s a good work-life balance, respect for how work is delegated (i.e., attorneys are not routinely asked to do obvious paralegal work), and what overall systems/structures are in place to make it a functional/successful environment. What sorts of questions do you think would get this info and also cut through the usual bs of “we’re a family here” when in reality no one talks to each other?
Anyone else feeling burnout/depression working from home? I’ve been wfh for 2 years now. I like my job, it’s easy, but I feel like I’m kind of drifting. Every day feels the same. I’ve tried working from coffee shops, etc, but it doesn’t seem to help. These people aren’t my colleagues. So I’m around people but don’t interact with them. Has anyone else experienced this ? How did you fix it? You see so many articles about embracing wfh flexibility on the internet but I just don’t get it.
I have my CIA test (part1) on the 17th. Has anyone who has taken it have any pointers or things to expect with the test ?

Anyone at PwC willing to give me a referral? Currently a Deloitte advisory consultant applying for a senior associate role at PwC.

How do you deal with the guilt of knowing you need to spend more time working, exercising, studying for the GMAT, looking for better jobs, spending time with friends, family, SOs, etc. but can’t?
Honest question / feeling - no weird flex (I know all fishes here are working very hard on an exit):
After a long struggle to secure the right exit with a lot of small wins and frustrations, running low on energy, do you find yourself a bit cold ('meh') once you get it (ready to sign up for the next journey)? Like there isn't that 'punching the air' energy...
Not to take away the seriousness of everything else, but does one need to wear sunscreen when WFH (not working outdoors but with a lot of screen time? )
Has anyone heard about the culture at Mosaic?
I think I may have a jerk boss. He told me in a meeting that he thought basically half of the associates at the firm are as far in their career as they’re going to go and that he has no intention of giving them any additional development. I think this is an awfully jerky way to run a business. Am I wrong?
I have been harassed at work from my boss for some time. Do you think I should come forward? I heard that Accenture does not really support people who come forward.
Is Boston big enough to expect less weekly travel? More specifically looking at roles in analytics teams (OW Labs, Mckinsey QB, BCG Gamma) if that helps. Don't think I can do constant weekly travel
