Happy WFH

like

We’ve been told we won’t be back until next year, and even then it won’t be the same again. I’m perfectly happy to WFH, and I talk to my team all the time, I miss my other colleagues and the interaction with others in the building. I miss my daily connection with the gal at the Dunkin’ Donuts who I’ve seen just about every working day for 17 years. It’s weird, and as I look toward retirement this isn’t how I envisioned signing off.

Have any of you had to go work in the office? I’ve learned I can do most of my job at home and with fewer interruptions. Would be nice to be given the option of wfh at least 1 - 2 days a week.

I go in once a week now and my dogs look at me very confused. I definitely don’t want to go back as an every day thing!

It almost doesn’t matter since no one in the US should be going into any office. I miss my colleagues but am happy to WFH. I don’t see us going back until 2021 at the earliest; and if the 2nd/3rd waves are as bad as expected, 2022.

No way. I’d prefer to live through this and also not be responsible for anyone else’s getting sick if I am exposed.

I have to go into the office once a week now

Enjoying WFH

I do not want to go back to the office. I have gotten use to WFH. I do not feel comfortable going to office anytime soon to wear a mask in the office, travel to office. Hoping next year.

I am okay going in once a week, we are doing that now because we are essential. Professionals, however, are not allowed in the office, only administrative staff. I have gotten used to working from home and prefer it, but also miss talking to my co-workers. I’m in Florida, so we prob won’t be going back for a while full-time.

Do you have advice on how to interview better with Amazon? My résumé and portfolio are great, and I’ve been asked to interview with Amazon for 4 different teams now. However, it seems like I’m not making it past the first 1:1 interview. 3 out of 4 have resulted in not the right fit for reasons unknown; they don’t provide any feedback either. I have been invited for a new interview today with another team, and I am hoping 4th time is the charm. Any tips on how to do better next time?

We all know it’s out of bounds for interviewers to ask how old we are. But I feel like a common chitchat question is, “Do you have kids? Oh, cool. How old are they?” Do you lie, or dodge? I pass for much younger than I am; but when people hear I have a 16 year old, I see them reassess me.

Hi guys! Was wondering if anyone here could give me a referral for the US Consultant position at LEK? A little bit about me - I just graduated from Boston University with an MA in economics. Previously, I worked at a financial research firm for about 3.5 years as a Research Analyst, where I conducted a detailed analysis on sovereigns and financial institutions.
