I want to move to a remote fishing village in SE Asia and live out my days without excel or ppt
Do any of your agencies employ remote freelancers? Do you feel it hinders the work process or otherwise?
Just started my first post-college job, based in nyc: assuming the office doesn’t open for the next 12+ months, should I continue wfh at my parents house in the middle of nowhere and save $30k over the course of the year (but basically throw away a year of my social life), or move to nyc in a few months w some roommate friends? How’s the city looking nowadays?
I think I found my wfh setup…
Speed test!!! Wfh #gigabit fiber
How open is EY to remote work?
Any firms that have made the "work from home" decision yet? We've been getting preparation notices for weeks but not officially given the signal.
First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm. The majority of my experience has been working in private funds, financings, some M&A, and limited Real Estate work. I think I enjoy the idea of a few years in big law after law school to pay off loans (undergrad+law school), but am not sold b/c I have been remote since I started in January and rarely get to interact live with deal teams. How can I tell?
In US, it is “Work from Home”
Wrapping up mat leave soon & it’s back to work (from home) in a few weeks, & I’m going bonkers about how to manage two little ones in a small apartment while my husband is also WFH. How are people doing this? Any tips/childcare recos?
Let's reflect. What have you found to be the best WFH tips? What have you learned about yourself / others during the pandemic? What have you learned about leadership/ working with others? Overall, what works and what didn't?
I’m in my 4th week of WFH. For everybody having a hard time being isolated, things get better per week ✨
Anyone looking for Sr Copywriters? Open to moving but remote would be nice too. Open to anything really. Get me out.
Really afraid that MBAs will go back to remote and that I will waste the opportunity to get the time of my life
Does anyone allocate time for themselves? I actually work from home and am home every day. I do a lot around the house. 6AM-8AM - get daughter ready, drop off, 830AM-5PM - work, 5PM-8PM pick up...
I am burned out physically and mentally! Just not sure how to handle this feel! P.S I am married and a full time consultant... I usually like WFH so cant say I hate this current situation. I hate traveling for work. Anyone with me? How did/do u manage?
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
“Remote work empowers those who produce and disempowers those who have succeeded by being excellent diplomats and poor workers, along with those who have succeeded by always finding someone to blame for their failures.”
Required Education. Almost all jobs nowadays requires a bachelor’s degree (rarely substitute by experience). If an applicant has all the job requirements, but lacks the education, are they automatically disqualified or filtered out? How flexible is HR with education if it is a requirement?

UPDATE: ***“likely no merit based raises unless promotion”*** UPDATE: Layoffs are possible, markets are “fluid.” Leadership will not commit to saying layoffs are off the table. Overview on Business 1. Financial revenue decline 2. Cost Savings NEW INFO 1. 10% short on revenue plan 2. Turnover down significantly, 2,000 excess employees 3. Pricing pressures are creating economic headwinds
Kinda disturbing how intensely some folks ordering the iPhone X are being attacked online. Why does it matter if others want a phone? It seems to be another manifestation of the culture wars.
Hi all, I’m planning to take my first exam in NY. I’m hesitating to take it 1-2 days right before the day of my flight (going on PTO) is it risky ? I know some people got their seat cancelled by Prometric. What are your thoughts ? Thanks
Does anyone use Root insurance? I’m intrigued by the low prices (my quote is about $85 vs my current $150 with State Farm) but am concerned as to whether it’s legitimate. More specifically if I ever do get into a serious accident are they reliable? This assumes same coverage for both policies.
Greetings Fishes , I had given interview for Python Developer role in Mindtree and my interview went very well. After a week or so I received a mail that you are almost there and a Google link to fill some details. It has been 2 weeks and I have not heard anything from their side and I don't have any HR no because no HR discussion has happened yet. Can anyone tell me how much time it usually takes for next step and all. Thanks in advance
I wonder what this means for return to office plans.
I have an offer from TCS as a Salesforcee Business Analyst but another product based company has offered more CTC than TCS. I want to negotiate with TCS and want the same salary which a product based company has offered. Will HR consider? Any guidance will help.

Need tips from anyone in the Bay Area. Moving to San Francisco from NYC. Any areas are recommended? What’s the typical rent expense if you live alone vs. with a roommate? Can I go slightly outside San Francisco near Foster city for cheaper rent?
Trying to see if MBA is worth for me - I've just accepted an account director at an agency for $140K, 6 yoe, and trying to seek for MBA in order to transition into tech marketing. I heard that it's only worth it if the salary would double, but since I'm in HCOL I would hope that won't be the case. When you were trying to gauge if MBA is worth for you, what resources help you the most?
All other aspects of the offer same, Would you take salesforce for 45k higher TC than google?
I see a lot of consultants leaving for FAANG. But if the grass is truly more green, what drives some folks from FAANG to move into consulting? Especially a Big 4…
Okay so I was recently fired from Company A but immediately I applied at company B via a strong reference and was offered position that I accepted. Since I am on H1b, I didn’t reveal in the interview that I was let go, now that I am joining the new firm should I somehow tell the people that interviewed me that I was let go? I guess I don’t know how to handle this as I am afraid they might come to know in future, will it matter? Please help am in psychological dilemma
