PwC India is planning on calling the employees back to office after Diwali. What's the situation with your companies? Back to office or extended WFH?
My SO is a contractor and takes multi-month breaks in between projects. I’ve noticed for years that their personality changes (for the worse) when working, but WFH has made life especially toxic. I’ve tried broaching the subject from multiple angles but always leads to what appears to be blinding anger where they say very harsh /hurtful things. Any advice on how to handle?
I’ve been ending my work days at 12 AM (I wfh), but bright side is that I don’t work weekends. Basically, when do the long nights end? Does it get easier? I’m a first year
Quick poll. If you work remote, does your company reimburse internet? Mine has reimbursed it for years, and took it away this year. Seems like a weird move to do that now, so just curious about other's experience.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Have an opportunity to move anywhere in the US as fully remote now. Have two young kids. What could be some good places to move within US?

For people at remote-first companies (I’m in industry, not deloitte anymore), how do you feel about optional in-person events for employees that live close to the optional office? Especially wondering about the feelings of people who chose to live in a different city, and therefore can’t attend.
Doing a closet clean out / reorg and realizing how much of my identity is tied to fashion and how my fancy clothes are now just collecting dust 🙄 I bought some new things during quarantine, but then what’s the point if I don’t go anywhere and won’t for a while? Trying to focus on long term styles. I wonder if fashion will be even more relaxed once we get back to office & clients? I used to enjoy dressing up, but now I just wear loungy WFH stuff. My legs will have to re-learn walking in heels 😭
Hello. I’m working on H1B and recently got a promotion. My company is amending my H1B and told me that since my new job is remote I can only work at my apartment (since it’s my legal location). Is there any chance they can figure out I’m working remotely from somewhere else? Also, I’m also in the process of applying for green card (thru employment). Does anyone know the timeline for this given my H1B is getting amended ? (My country has no waiting time).
Does anyone has idea on brokerage account while working on H1B? I am thinking to open brokerage account and invest there but don't know what are the limitations especially on H1B and planning not to stay more than next 3 years.

I can’t function. I don’t have energy to do the smallest things. All I want to do is sleep. I don’t have to feel pain or deal with life when I sleep. I left my job because of this.

Do I qualify for state disability even though I quit my job?
