So my roommate has been staying elsewhere since we began quarantining and has been returning intermittently. Roommate has been paying half the electricity bill, which I have felt weird even charging for, but my friends have insisted that it is still both our responsibilities. Given WFH is permanent as of now, the electricity has been a bit higher with me home for the 10 hours I’d normally be gone. And with summer approaching, AC is going to double that cost. Do I still keep charging half? AITA?
Looking for a Senior Art director, temp to perm. Remote but based in NYC if we ever work in-person again. Please DM me for more info!!!
My firm is heading back to the office next month after 7 months of working remotely. I am dreading it because I have grown to love my work-from-home, yoga-pants-wearing, no-makeup lifestyle. It got me thinking about what priorities I want to carry forward as things shift more towards normal. What priorities or routines did you develop during quarantine that you plan to keep?
I recently met someone in another country where I’m working remote. He asked me to be his girlfriend but I’m moving in about a month. He doesn’t want to do distance unless I move back (which is an option with remote work, but visas are tricky). I really like him but don’t know if I’d be able to move back here between work/borders/etc. Do I keep seeing him and just try to enjoy the now? A part of me just feels so sad about leaving and breaking up. Idk if it’s worth it.
In your opinion, where is the big law “office” going in the next few years. Do you expect them to keep the expensive real estate + eventually demand people back in, or consolidate, downsize their overhead and keep WFH? Relatedly, will that change the markets in the big metros?
I'm renting co-working space for a remote job in a building specializing in providing startups with dynamically sized workspace. Our county, city, and the building owners themselves all have mask mandates in place for individuals regardless of vax status. I've reported most of the people on the floor to the building admin for violating the mandates multiple times. How many more until I should escalate to the city?

Still looking to hire a Supply Chain Strategy Manager. Based in SF / Dallas but remote is ok; 2-5 YoE in Strategy/Management Consulting; some focus work in Supply Chain preferred. DM me if interested!
So google dropped a bunch of roles which are remote. Are these fully remote? The reason I ask is they are also showing the office locations for these roles.
I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?
Boss just emailed expecting team to work over weekend. Already spent 60h this week staring at screens WFH. Should I just ignore?

KPMG Fish, what is a good salary for someone joining the firm in Toronto, in risk consulting at the manager level?
I could use some guidance on how to transition out of firm life into a government role. Prior to law: four years working for a state and a city, and four years before that worked at a consulting agency strictly serving government agencies and cities/counties. You’d think this would parlay well into the government roles I am applying for, but so far no dice. I’m entering my fourth year practicing as a lawyer. I love admin law, have some litigation and some transaction work as a lawyer. Thanks!
Anyone know anything about PwC's culture? I just interviewed with a recruiter and they seem so tired that it brought down my mood.
My wife and I started an llc for a software service in 2019. We filed a joint form 1040 where we included our business expenses related to llc as it is permitted under irs guidance not to make a partnership/corp election for a married couple. The llc is still in a developmental phase but we plan to release in 2021 and raise capital from investors, go for IPO and issue stock in a distant future. Do we must convert to corporation and if yes, when? We filed all legal docs for llc in 2019.
Does PWC pay for MBA? Is it Full or Partial?
Does anyone know if MBB (Toronto) is hiring a lot these days? Currently working at big 4 (manager) with no case interview experience/ no mba … thinking it would at least take me 2-3 months to prep and network. Would trying to get in by Jan be too late? Also, my spouse is thinking of potentially moving to the states next year. Do you know if US MBB helps new hire with their H1B visa? (Understand it may be difficult but want to check if it’s worth trying)

I am in a design/production role at a mid-sized agency. We currently only have one person on the digital team doing UX. I recently presented my manager with a proposal for a new position, UI Designer, that I want to move into. I would love some advice on how to negotiate salary on a new position that doesn't current exist. How do you respond to an offer? What if they say it's a lateral move and don't offer me any additional compensation?
Does your company's health plan cover infertility treatment? If so, what is the lifetime cap if any? My company just implemented a cap—admittedly we were lucky before—but this new cap of $30k only covers ~$6k in medical expenses (another ~$23k in prescriptions) which wouldn't even get us through one IVF cycle (extract/implant once).
