Planning on working remote from Colorado for about a month. Any recommendations on places/towns? Specifically, looking for towns that offer weekly/monthly furnished apartment rentals (outside of airbnb/vrbo/etc.) in addition to the outdoor activities (hiking, biking, parks)
what if we find out this wfh thing is better than traveling and going to the office? THEN WHAT DO WE DO?
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Anyone gotten rhinoplasty? I was getting consults before the pandemic and chickened out bc I’m terrified of dying in surgery for a cosmetic procedure. But I’m considering it again bc I hate how I look in photos and bc we’re all wfh and I’ve never met my colleagues in person so no one would know. Anyone had this done? Was it worth it? Any issues?
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
First remote week in months. Walked into the grocery store to go shopping for the week, got overwhelmed, bought cookie dough and La Croix and walked out. Does anyone actually grocery shop on the reg?
I hate the city I live in but I love my agency. Since we’ve been wfh for months (and it looks like the rest of the year) I want to ask if I can continue to work remote so I can move somewhere I’m happy. Thoughts on how to approach management?
We are looking to hire some great Sales experts on our team. Great WLB, remote and competitive pay. Please DM me if you are interested.
Conference call bingo - my board is almost full and it’s only day one wfh and the work day is still young 😅
We want what we can’t have. Right now we can’t travel for work. When we can have that again (don’t ask me when, because no one really knows), we’ll miss being able to work from home.
Realized I’ve been skipping breakfast and lunch bc of the overload of work / stress / anxiety even though we’re all wfh. I never had this problem before when wfh but ever since quarantine started..I’ve been feeling antsy to be 100% productive..and when I’m not at 100% (like rn as I’m writing this post) my anxiety levels are wack. Any advice on how to manage?
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Hey Mates I'm working in pretty good fintech firm. I'm in my 30s with 2 kids and they are calling everyone to office by January I want remote job and would never want to live in any city again. Wondering which route to opt? 1. Start investing in open source and build a profile, find freelance jobs on upwork/Fiverr Or 2. Start giving interviews in remote jobs. FYI I'm terrible at interviews and spoken communications. Please provide your inputs. I want to work remote with good pay.

Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA

Recent graduate (class of 21) from the UW business school. I came across an open FT associate position at Strategy&’s deal strategy team and was wondering if anyone from S& would be willing to chat? I’m really passionate about consulting and have a major interest in the PE vertical so this was a huge surprise. I’ve been prepping for a couple of months now and would really appreciate the help/opportunity! Would send over credentials but not sure how! PwC Thanks!
I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

Several staffing firms have reached out for positions. Not familiar with how they work. If you accept a position, are you an employee of the client or the staffing firm? They also asked for my desired hourly rate 🤔
