Ready to start day 2 WFH with my inspiration mug. What does your coffe mug say this morning?
Anybody else tired of working from home/remote?
What is the WFH scenario at EY? Till when has it been declared and what is road ahead? Is the firm looking to reopen the office? Do you think there will be an option of permanent/optional remote working?
What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
Anyone from EY WFH outside the US? Thinking of doing it for a few days, but not sure if I should tell my team since firm policy states we must be in the country.
Does anyone know of any agencies that have a decent amount of remote staff? I'd love to work for a cool shop (and am willing to travel a ton) but don't want to uproot completely.
What is the KPMG US policy on WFH / remote work?
Did yall file another LCA to add in home address since its WFH eventho you live <50 miles from main address in LCA-office
Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
Till when WFH for EY GDS Bangalore?
I teach beginning elementary ELs. As we prepare for remote teaching, the administration doesn’t plan to distribute any technology. How to I help families and non readers access activities?!?
Any budget friendly WFH chair recommendations? Was looking at a gaming chair, but bad reviews have put me off.
If you’re worried about your students because they were online all year please check out my resource. I was a first grade teacher last year online and a doctorate student. I could tell the kids would need some SEL to transition back! Filled with guiding questions and a sequencing activity. Very helpful to teach empathy to those students who were not online as well 💕. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n9jcRsJ8NGc&feature=youtu.be. https://www.amazon.com/Follow-Distance-Learning-Agnieszka-Petlik/dp/1637103956/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=follow+me+to+distance+learning&qid=1628036547&sprefix=follow+me+to+distance&sr=8-3. https://cea.org/simsbury-teacher-writes-book-to-help-students-understand-experience-of-remote-learning/
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
For people who live alone, how are you staying motivated? I’ve been feeling more depressed lately and really need some advice to get through this whole wfh thing
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
Was sitting at a green light to take a left turn and a dude on a bike just rammed into me. Says my bad and drives off. Left a nice scratch and dent on my car door. I have a toddler in the car so couldn’t chase after him. What’s the best course of action? No police nearby and too late for him to be caught.
People on FishBowl be like: “Hey 🐠, I’m 33 and just got a $2.5 million inheritance. I’m thinking about going back to get my MBA, but I also want to retire and move to a foreign country. Also just found out my wife’s been cheating on me with my brother. What should I name my first born child? 😀”
3.00 UG gpa (death of a parent, caretaker of the other), 3.95 master GPA both in engineering, 730 GMAT. Have killer ECs, decent WE but not gold. I'm applying to 10 of the T15 in R1, with Cornell as my safety. Should I add more schools that are lower ranked in or just see where I land after R1? Really want to have at least 1 acceptance after R1.
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
Switch to Big 4 Corp Dev from Big 4 M&A Strat Consulting or continue M&A Strat Consulting path w/ MBA or PE/IB in mind?
How is the wlb in ey considering Morgan Stanley as client? Skill set : Java and springboot .
How’s the WLB in EYP TSE group ? Thinking of applying but have heard horror stories of MBB equivalent stress levels.EY-Parthenon
Does anyone have insight into compensation bands for consultants in the communications or public affairs fields? I see a lot of posts about salary for Cs, SCs, Ms, etc (wayyy more than what I make!) but I know ranges on here include some career disciplines that are typically more lucrative. I can’t tell if I’m in range for the offering I’m in or if I’m severely underpaid.
Got a verbal offer from a big 4 a month ago, discussed salary expectations 3 weeks ago, still no offer letter. Firm has to let me know it should be coming soon. Are these normal timelines?
We always keep hearing about the bad WLB in MBB, especially BCG. Want to know if it's actually true, or is it an untrue rumor spread by people who couldn't get into these companies. (Note - I am talking about incremental WLB issues, over and above the issues at Deloitte S&O, Accenture Strategy, etc. as these issues are common in management consulting)
Want to be consultant. Non trad IS Eng BS this year, Process improvement at FCA now, was exec in healthcare, national sales director for retail startup, and startup founder. 3.3 major, 2.9 overall.
EY leadership has no boundaries. My husband is working in a project where they are in critical phase of testing and delivery of the system. His leadership calls him at 6am in the morning for status updates when they know for sure that he was up till 2/3 am working. I am asking him to put foot down but it seems he is the only one with the required knowledge. Venting ends. Thanks for hearing me out.
i miss date night. small very shallow thing but with working from home, and doing that so much more, plus homeschooling and kid stuff there’s really no time alone that feels fun.
What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far . I’ve interviewed for social media roles, BDR manager roles , always falling short on what they are looking for. Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?
Can we extend visitor visa beyond 6 months? As in if expires in July, can we extend until next July?
