I got a good offer from Accenture, with joining location as Kolkata, which also my hometown. My question: Is there a possibility that after joining in Kolkata, my base location may change to other major IT cities soon? What I mean to ask here is, are there enough clients and projects in Accenture Kolkata to work in? Or is there ample remote working opportunity in Accenture? Integrations architect, 10 years exp
My company is transitioning from wfh back to the office, but everyone returning to the office is supposed to be vaccinated. I told my boss I would NOT be getting the vaccine and he said I wouldn’t have a desk in the office until I did. So I told him I would continue to wfh. He said that “wouldn’t work.” After our phone call, I got an invite for a zoom conference with my boss and an HR rep!? They’re infringing on my rights by requiring a vaccine. What can I do to make sure I keep my job?
Morning rant - I kinda hate this hypocrisy where we are doing everything in the world at this stage - visiting malls, watching movies, going to restaurants/pubs, travelling the world BUT just when it comes to going to offices, covid is a risk we will not go.
I have recently received an offer from Infosys for 7LPA for senior systems engineer post with an option for permanent WFH. I have experience in UI and LAMP stack. Is it a fair package as I was in a startup before with 5 LPA and 3 years experience in Web development.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE working form home full time. However, I have noticed I feel less relaxed after work and I think it might be because I don't have that time commuting home to listen to audiobooks and decompress. How do you 'leave work at work' when you have a home office?
i’m hiring interns for my business. anyone know of friends/family who might be interested? 100% remote and flexible. need marketing
Best walkable neighborhoods in Miami and FLL? Full-time WFH and considering relocating for part of the year. Want something walkable near the beach and Brickell is top of mind
My assistant missed her third straight day today without any explanation. Around mid morning, I get an email from HR that she’s been working remotely. I reply to the email saying that idk what’s going on, but that the assistant has been AWOL and not providing any support while WFH. Admin replied that if assistant isn’t completing tasks, I should tell managing partner and not them…. Is this normal?

I really want to work in an office again. I like putting stuff on the walls, talking with people, the serendipity of things. I think it benefits the work. Who else is looking forward?
Hello Fishes, What are the different management hierarchy levels in EY-GSD (Kochi) Consultancy firm? (Consultant 1, consultant 2, Assistant Manager, Manager, etc.,) (IT Audit) I was offered Senior Consultant 1 in Consulting and the rank offered was 42. Area: IT Audit and my Year of experience is 10 years and the package offered was 19 LPA. Is it worth accepting the offer? As of WFH as was agreed, however, over a period I have to move to Kochi from Bangalore and my current CTC was 16.7 LPA.
A friend just kicked out of dental school because she refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. She claims her family has suffered “adverse affects” from the vaccine and is afraid to get it. What have you done to convince someone you love to get the vaccine? I hate watching her throw away her career because of something as trivial as getting a vaccine.
Looking for a senior graphic designer for a facebook ad design. Looking to build a retainer relationship, for additional projects. We are located in Chicago, but open to remote. Hit me up. 👌🏻
So excited to plan Travel with my 2 year old and partner for six weeks whilst working remote in June. Where do you suggest? I need to be within 2-3 hours of Amsterdam via/plan or train. Mostly looking to enjoy family stuff so no need to be in major cosmopolitan area.
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
So who else here is experiencing plummeting billable hours and exponential weight gain since this whole WFH thing started? Bought snacks for 30 days, finished in 48 hours.
Hi Folks, any news about office opening? I am going to join Accenture in April and I want to continue WFH. HR was saying "AS-OF-NOW" WFH but want to understand how long. Did they force anyone to WFO recently ? Is Accenture flexible enough to allow WFH if an employee wants ?
After 18 years, I lost my art room to a classroom this year in order to spread out kids due to Covit19. They said we can’t hand out papers.. kinda thinking art is remote for all. I will do lessons on google classroom with live lesson to classrooms and home. I was told special area teachers may be “repurposed”. We will be used like a TA. One class will be spread out two rooms.Aday teacher in one room, I help in other room. B day teachers switch 😳😷☹️.. I know I’m lucky to have a job but.

Everyone's on PTO and SM emails "Team, I never got an update on this. Did this get worked out?"
Am I the only one whose penmanship has gone to shit? Two years and I honestly don't think I could recognize my own from a first grader's scribbles.
Here's an idea: utilize the bcc line when sending mass emails. Congratulatory responses should be sent to those that deserve it, not the entire distro list.
