The number of posts about bras and not having to wear them while WFH tells me there’s a big pain point and business opp’ty ladies: who wants to launch the next Unicorn company and revolutionize bras?
I’m a total lard ass after WFH for almost 2 years and I’m starting a new job that’s mostly in person. None of my cute work clothes fit to boot so I have to figure out what I’m going to wear while working on losing the weight. Great.
Zoom WFH secrets: No one has figured out yet the big black box thing in the background of my home office is where hubby dries and trims his pot plants.
Has anyone else taken a hit to their work confidence during covid? I tell myself that just because I’m bad at WFH doesn’t mean I’m necessarily bad at this job. But I’m a junior, so I don’t even know if that’s true.
Hi Fishes, I have joined cognizant recently .I am wondering does cognizant provide WFH kit claim? If yes then how much they give? If now then how can i claim for WFH chair as i need to buy it ., Thanks in advance!!!!
Overworked mom of two young kids and I’ve come to the realization that I have very few friends who live nearby. I’m the only one of my close circle who didn’t head to suburbs after kids and WFH has made me aware of how reliant I was on work friends for a social outlet. I’ve still got great friends I can call for anything but, really missing having girlfriends I can just meet up without planning a month in advance. Strategies for making new friends in middle age and with very little spare time?
Does anyone else feel like this pandemic has helped level out the playing field between working moms and everyone else? Although the beginning of the pandemic was a nightmare with no access to childcare, continuing to be able to work from home has provided me with the opportunity to advance my career, where I could not before because of the time constraints of my commute and getting home to relieve my childcare. Am I alone in feeling this way?
Started at a new firm ~1 month ago and not really enjoying it so far. How do I know it’s not just the starting remote that’s difficult vs if I’m not going to like it here?
Does anybody here feels that this never ending calls and over zealous over productive folks are a byproduct of COVID. I mean I feel like I am working more because of WFH
I've recently moved to the US from India but now that everything is WFH I'm having a hard time making friends or connections with coworkers. I'm not sure what to do as I'm very lonely.
Why aren't policies like one-remote-week-per-month more common? Wouldn't that drastically reduce burn out?
Let me know If anyone is interested or has questions about Secure On-Set Remote Video Streaming or the new On-Set Protocols that I experienced on the 3 commercials I’ve just finished in Los Angeles. I’ve been doing On-Set Remote Streaming for 3 years, and Video Playback (VTR) for 19 years mostly on Commercials in LA. The new norm is quite different. I'm limited to 500 words in these posts, but for anyone interested I can give you free demo of Live stream and answer any questions. -Brett Junod

Has anyone joined a team that is all full time remote, with people in different countries and time zones? How has the onboarding process been? Have you been able to form a connection with your team? Considering some opportunities but very skeptical of how this would all go down and if it would be super lonely and depressing. There may not be a chance to actually meet people and have that bond with your co-workers that makes work bearable
