Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too
I’m not American, have no SO, and can’t seem to go home or do much traveling domestically either because of COVID. Any inspiration from people in similar situations on how to spend 2 weeks of PTO time before it expires..?
Any thoughts/insights on how the travel aspect would play out in PwC's Salesforce practice in the post COVID world? Will they want us to be on the road 4 days a week or it will be much more hybrid? If it's the latter, how much % of travel should someone working at PwC's Salesforce practice expect?
Anyone tried to meet up with former or current colleagues in real life during Covid? How do you approach it? I’m going to be traveling out of state next month and want to reach out to people in that state.
So I'm feeling cooped up living alone as a single woman in this covid world. I want to go out or just stay in a cabin or go enjoy a hot spring vacay. Just do something and be anywhere that is not home. Located in Chicago. Any suggestions?
Grateful to have work in the world of COVID, but after almost a decade in the agency world working for several big agencies, I know deep down I need to get out.
Have been so close to landing multiple in-house opportunities over the last year but was second runner up (three times) to people that came directly from a similar organization or competitor. Meanwhile, I have direct experience in the agency capacity.
Any tips on how to show the value agency experience can bring to an in-house role?
Any news from anyone, especially during covid?
Recently observing many Senior Cons are joining Deloitte firms all over the world. Deloitte Canada , Deloitte Netherlands , Deloitte UK etc. Is Deloitte offering these transfers as part of retention?

Parents- with Covid likely causing virtual school I’d want an after school program like Kumon but at home. Maybe find a tutor who practices that method? Where can I find one? I had a mean Korean lady that annoyed me so much that I became good at math- looking for someone just like that 😂

Anyone have an elderly loved one who developed covid pneumonia and strep? My vaxxed and boosted 78yo mom tested positive last Monday after waking with a 102 fever. She’s still at home but was diagnosed with covid pneumonia and strep, suspected due to worsening symptoms and persistent fever. She started antibiotics today but pretty nervous for her. Trying not to panic but very anxious.
Once you have COVID, when can you return back to normal activities like leaving my room lol? In NYC, didn’t get tested but had all COVID like symptoms. Lasted about a week and have been feeling fine for a couple of days.
I am getting promoted soon. I work out of the NYC office of a top ten (non B4) firm. I would love some insight on what others in a similar situation were paid as a first year manager or expect to be paid.
I am currently sitting at 92.5k as a senior. Covid killed my most recent raise (for the whole firm). I am consistently getting high ratings.
Thanks in advance!

Alright ladies. I’ve been looking for the PERFECT white work blouse for years. I shop almost exclusively at Ann Taylor for work, and while I’ve found some white blouses I like, I’ve never found the perfect shirt that doesn’t show your bra and that looks great on its own as well as under a jacket/blazer (ie, no bunching of the sleeves when wearing a jacket). Who has a white blouse they love that they wear with everything??

Anyone have advice on going from tax compliance to tax technology? Looks really interesting to me and I always wanted to learn how to code/develop but I also don’t want to “leave” my CPA behind.

I'm currently a Tax Senior at EY. My goal is to ultimately become a Corporate Controller. That means I need financial accounting experience. Any tips or suggestions?
