Imagine if this virus hit thirty years ago. If it wasn't for the internet, allowing WFH and communications, the economy would basically collapse. It could be alot worse.
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.

Starting a new job soon and have no idea how to go around building a network when everyone is remote. How should I approach this?
For folks who are stuck on India during this time.. will you be able to WFH? Legally can you do that? Would you need LCA and how long can you WFH..
Expecting to wfh for the next month. Thinking how to strengthen my core. Going to try daily planks starting 30 seconds in hopes of reaching 5 minutes by day 30! Who’s in??
Living alone in a new city, I thought WFH would be lonely and depressing. Turns out I love not dealing with coworkers AND I've been reconnecting with old friends on animal crossing. This isnt so bad😂
I never thought that I'd say this, but I want to see offices and cubes make a return to the workplace. Either that or 70-100% work from home. Only having the option of open workspaces is terrible.
Is it still a bad time to move to NYC? Would be WFH but wanting to get it over with and get out of parent’s house. Would be coming from FL so assuming it’ll be quite a shock moving there
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
No joke. I just found out one of our ADs takes his Apple monitor home when he decides to WFH because working off his laptop is annoying. I mean, isn’t that why you have a desk...
If I ask for remote after accepting offer from Accenture, will they agree? If they do, will they reduce package??
What’s the latest on returning to the office for each PA firm? Vaccine required? Masks vs. no masks? Mandatory number of days per week? Any companies doing 100% remote or completely flexible? Travel or events allowed?
Does Deloitte provide work from home allowance to new joiners? If yes, how much? Any other joining benefits?
Weirdest thing done while wfh during a meeting?
For those who have gotten degrees and certifications, how do you find the time to study with kids? Mine are not in school yet and don’t go to daycare. Hubby doesn’t work from home and we don’t have anyone to help with childcare either. I’m already working late hours and waking up early to get work done.
What’s a typical salary for an acd in philly?
To be young again.
Left my first job after just shy of two years because I was bored. Have been at my current job for about half a year and it’s a great resume builder but an absolute horror story (long hours, unreasonable clients, tons of weekend work that’s not worth the pay). If I left in a few months, at the 10 month mark, would that significantly hurt my chances of getting a strong exit opportunity? I can’t imagine staying here for the full year but I don’t want to blow my chances at leaving for a cool job
Friend received I797B instead of I797A for his H1B approval. The immigration lawyer is recommending him to leave US and get his visa stamped. Any option for addressing this from within US?
The toughest part of my day is leaving my baby in someone else's care when he is sick. Balance it's such a unicorn. I am considering a LOA just to spend more time with my baby. I feel so guilty.
I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
Hot Take: Defining your self-worth by working at FAANG, MBB, or Bulge Bracket Bank or going to a M7 Business School isn’t the move.
MBB FAANG Networth
How does BCG’s operations practices score as compared to McKinsey and Bain? Want to switch to MBB for operations. Need some perspective. Thank you
I’m student teaching and I’m completely stressed out. I’ve been in an elementary classroom as a TA, but this is way different.
Just started a new role in finance and I’m the only woman on the team. It’s been 3 weeks and the guys have been pretty unwelcoming and kind of rude. The first day everyone was welcoming but it went downhill since. One of them keeps trying to scare me that the work will get hard etc and there’s always awkward silence and sometimes unnecessary rude remarks. I just started and don’t feel right what should I do.
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
Does anyone know of recruiting firms with a focus on Anti-money laundering? I’m foreign educated and newly admitted NY attorney with CAMS certification but living in Miami lol. I’m here, because my husband practices in SoFlo. Any recommendations? I don’t have any experience but have CAMS.
Found a job I wanna apply to, but can't quit until at least September...is it worth applying??
