I commenced international remote working to be closer to my friends and family, but now as my team's office is about to reopen, I'm missing the idea of commuting and the sense of community in being part of the 9am rush hour. Are there any other easy ways of building a sense of community? Cheers!

…you’re missing the idea of commuting? A sense of community in rush hour? Do you live in a small city or something?

I'm moving from a smaller city to London, but WfH so no commute!

Wow, I've heard rush hour described as quite a few things, but I think this is the first time I've ever heard it described as a sense of community... 🤔

With new considerations for full-time remote work given the pandemic, has anyone heard of hires internationally at agencies? For example, if an agency office in London has a remote option, do they even consider candidates from the U.S. or will the time difference be too great to make it work?

My firm recently announced that they were beginning a reservation system for hoteling starting February of 2022 for offices . We were told to clear out our offices by December 31,2022 . The lease is not up for renewal until June 2024 at which point they will look to reduce their office space due to a hybrid work model . My issue is what incentive do I have to make a reservation to go to an office when I can simply continue work from home hassle free. Any Thoughts and comments?

Hello Folks, Can you pls advise on which company to go for. R-Systems : They are providing WFH + clarity on the project and team for which I’ll be working upon. CTS : No clarity as of now, only thing I am aware is that I’m a part of full stack community. HCL : Some clarity on the project but less package than other two. R-Systems and CTS are giving same CTC. YOE ~8 Skill set : . Net full stack + Angular + Azure Thanks

I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Big 4 fish, how do you handle independence reporting for your bf/gf? My bf works at a big 4 firm as a consultant (not audit) and from their vague definition, I qualify as a "spousal equivalent." He's always worried that he could theoretically get fired if he didn't report me and they found out about our relationship, but we definitely don't want to go through the process, especially considering I'd have to sell most of my stocks as they're restricted. Is there really a risk to not reporting me??
