Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into our NY office seems pointless.

Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..

In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?

I have several clients who come to me wanting stock ideas. Other clients call me with stock ideas of their own and ask me my opinion.

Does anyone else do this?
