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.
Anyone else experiencing toxicity in remote startup environments? Greater abuse of time and personal freedom, less encouragement of empathy from leaders, delusions of far greater diversity accomplishments, lack of clarity and communication… How to clear the air and establish structure from afar… or GTFO?
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?
Groundhog Day - WFH edition
How has your WFH experience during the pandemic impacted (or not) your sense of loyalty / willingness to sacrifice for: - your team - your client - your firm
I just separated from my husband and will be filing for divorce this week. I have removed myself from the home. Should I tell my job I’m going through a divorce? I do work from home and it’s possible I may have to take a few days off to regroup.
What are the range of salaries for a Sr. Buyer who does the contract during the Procurement process? Remote so any range would help. I was a logistics specialist E-5 in the Navy, then was a Manager at Amazon for 3 years, now I have 2 years with contract experience through IT software purchase. I feel I'm being underpaid, and would like to see what some of the salaries are. Thanks, Mike

Hi Fishes. I have my joining in Infosys on Monday but I hardly received any communication on the details. Have filled to the details on Launchpad and it's 90% complete since my graduation and CA are overlapping and are uneditable currently. Does anyone have any idea of onboarding in Infosys and what shall be next step? And shall it be remote or I need to travel to my base location?
Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
What agencies have gone complete WFH?
Started a new gig over a month ago and was very excited to work with my new partner but they haven’t been too welcoming, projects have not been collaborative (just me doing it and emailing it to them), they don’t really reply to my messages about work (started remote) and doesn’t really reply to any creative inspiration that I send to break ice. Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?
What WFH upgrades have people made? I still see executives working off a laptop from their dining room table and wonder how they’ve done that for 18 months. I already had a decent desk/monitor, bought a bee webcam, and just upgraded by desk chair (should have done that a year ago!).
Back on the road in the AM after 8 months of the WFH life. The Sunday Scaries are at an all time high right now.
How long do you think it’d take to “explore” Chicago? Have opportunity to work remote from US and would love to travel from city to city maybe every year or every 6 months and wondering if a year is enough time to get a good experience out of Chicago

Have anyone heard about Deloitte & Associates? They are handling my H1b transfer. Are they good?
My husband just recovered from covid but still has lingering symptoms- loss of appetite, fatigue, memory lapse. If you had covid, did you experience symptoms after testing negative? How long did it take you to fully recover? He got covid a week after getting first vaccine so his case was mild.
