I’ve been focusing on drinking more water and trying to be a bit more environmentally conscious. I also don’t own a urinal at home, so I use my sink. Just wanted to share this wfh hack here.
Encouraging WFH is not the same as making it mandatory. People who “take the option” of WFH will be frowned upon. Meanwhile “encouraging WFH” alleviates the liability of the agency. Don’t fall for it.
Still confused on moving back or not (currently subletting place to someone). What have your experiences been like? Rent worth it even though work still remote?
I feel like I need a career coach because I am considering switching jobs but I don’t know where to go or where to start. I feel really overwhelmed and don’t know what I’m qualified for. And then always worried another job could be worse than the one I’m in now. Am I the only one like this? Where do you start? I can look at job postings and all but idk what I want to do long term. Especially with WFH I feel like there’s absolutely no networking or anyone to talk to outside of my team
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
I work from home 100% of the time. Does Accenture help with costs of setting up a home office? Desk, extra monitor, speaker phone, etc.
Need to move to the burbs w/fiancee, but where? Staying in BK is not an option, though we will eventually work in the city 1-2 days/week (someday?). Won't do long island, need a 2 car garage w/space to work on cars and also space for a woodshop whether it's in basement or elsewhere. Planning on having kids and because we'll work from home a lot still need office space. I grew up in burbs and it wasn't so bad because I lived walking distance to train station into the city & nice downtown. 800k!
I just find it odd that my biglaw firm isn’t even entertaining a flexible work schedule. They made more money last year with people remote. It’s like they’re not motivated by profit.
So, work from home, mindless spreadsheet work, no more meetings today. Acceptable to have a beer or two while I slog through?
Looking for freelance Mid/Sr AD. My GCD asking me to throw a few books on their desk by Tues. Gig will be 2-3 months, remote. PM a book if you’re interested.
I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
Finishing up my PhD in computational epidemiology. Prior MPH graduate with pharma and provider experience (mostly analytics side) . Companies to target in Chicago or remote roles?
So interviewed at an airline company for analyst position. Apparently they expect everyone to return to office most days, max 2 remote days a week. I LOVE remote work. I'm not micromanaged and can complete my work efficiently. - is this something negotiable? Any other airlines not requiring a return to office? Looking for flight benefits and remote work in combination...

Can someone tell me about the “Business Analyst” role at EY? Where I come from analysts and consultants are different animals. I’m a consultant now, but was actively recruited for a “position” at EY. After the initial convo I received an invitation for a formal interview for a business analyst position… Which in my mind is a step down from consultant. Any insight? Also, what’s the culture over there? Weekly hours? Management? It’s flattering that one of the Big4 is after me but is it worth it..
