I was laid off this month from a US-based company where I've been a reporter for the past 3 years or so... I live in Europe. I wonder if I'm likely to have luck with other remote-friendly US companies. Or are we already past that?

Like most tech companies, about a year ago my company started hiring remote employees. we all worked remotely for 24 months.

Now that we are reopening our offices, no one seems to be coming into the office yet. I really do not want to work remotely anymore, and I’m seriously considering changing jobs just to go back to a workplace where people are in person.

Is anybody else in this position? I feel like I am losing my mind working from home for two years with no end in sight.


I just got an offer for 20% below my current pay but I hate my job and can’t bear to stay in it. The new company would be fully remote and the team seems infinitely more supportive than my current job. Is it career suicide to retrograde in terms of comp? Anyone been in this situation?

Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP

Long shot, but is there anyone here who has made a move from a US firm to a law firm or remote working for a US firm (or inhouse as a second choice) in Bangkok, Thailand? Interested due to family reasons but I understand that the legal market is pretty protected, so not sure how much of a long shot this is. Thanks!

Hey all, ~7 years I've been working with fixed income analytics (duration, spread, etc) and perf attribution for institutional inv mgmt firm with close to $400B aum.

I'm being laid off in a couple months. Should I say I'm being laid off in interviews? Or is that a negative? I get severance if I stay the whole time so ideally I can time it. Have finance degree, CFA charter.

Most of work has been IG, but also some HY, EM and equity. Want to go into equity research/PM- worried I'm pigeonholed


I joined HSBC 1.5 years ago.
Joined remote and am still working from home.
I think it's time that we suggest to the management that the teams which have very little significance of coming to office be allowed to work mostly remote. People can come in once in a while to meet and greet and have bonding
I feel it is really unnecessary that people should relocate to Bangalore just to come to the office 2 days a week. Just think about all the traffic, rents and covid uncertainty of course.

Hi..I have a techie situation... I need to return my former company's PC laptop (I work remote), and have some personal files on it that I've already copied, but want to remove. My login is not working any longer therefore I cannot access the system.

What do you recommend I do before shipping the PC back to my company. should I do a "Reset this PC and remove everything" that I'm able to access via the boot menu. Is there another option?

Fighting Salary Compression

I have 15+ years vesting in current company/ position, 25 years over all. I love my job!
But for the past 3 years I’m told that my yearly annual increases will be decreased due to reaching a salary ceiling. 2% rate increases barely kept pace with rate of living, especially after this years 8-12% inflation increase. Also, new employees are now being hired at a higher rate.

Anyone else experience this issue? How and what is the best course of action to address?
