Do you think we’ll have a wave of Coronavirus babies in nine months? You know like nine months after a huge snowstorm?
I’m considering applying for remote legal admin positions in addition to my current role (also remote, with flexible schedule). Do we foresee any issues with working two remote jobs, assuming no conflicts? How could I go about talking about my current role, if asked? It would be nice to have an extra income source, and since I work from home, I don’t see the time being an issue.
I have a chronic illness and WFH has saved my career. There is no way I would have been able to commute to and work in an office consistently. Now, none of my coworkers even know I’m sick.
When should I tell my boss/team that I’m expecting? I’m fully remote and don’t have to worry about “showing” at work, but want to give my colleagues ample heads up without jumping the gun too soon
Just curious. What are other firms doing as far as hybrid/wfh models? Vision is still unclear from leadership what our return to work plans are.
Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference. Salary increase wouldn’t be large but enough to make a difference. My heart wants to do it but there is risk involved - not as much stability as the Big 4 company I work for and I’m supporting a family. What do I do? Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!
Where are folks mostly exiting to? I was hired as an experienced manager and I have been thinking about moving back to the industry. It’s been really hard adjusting to the Covid schedule with family and kids. I am looking for a change but also scared to start the process of looking and interviewing. Just venting folks! 😔
Big Oof. Deloitte are managing a Covid-19 testing centre in the UK (in addition to other centres and the logistics between) and yep, they suck at it. I know partners will bid for anything but wow.
Do we still need suits? Gained that covid weight - now trying to figure out if thats still a thing and I may need to get a new one. I mean it is kind of weird sitting in a home office/spare bedroom on zoom or w.e. in a full suit and tie to me.. What do yall 🐟 think?
Update got fired: Based on previous post to pick up a Lower CTC (offer $$) or not I'm planning on taking a lower money job How's a response to my future hire a year later I got laid off due to covid. I picked up this opportunity to pay my bills (40% lower Money) So had to do this for a while

Anyone work remotely and also have a remote supervisor? In an office environment where 90% of the team is working remotely, I’m trying to understand why the supervisor can’t also be remote.
Are people still seeing these fully remote positions in Big Law available/people joining your firm through them? I saw many in the spring, but not sure now that we are closer to September.

How can I accelerate my path to FIRE? Currently making ~$5.2k/month after taxes and send money to the following: - $500 for expenses (living with parents during covid) - $2.7k to max 401k and IRA with mega backdoor contributions - $1.5k towards down payment savings in HYSA - $400 to brokerage account
I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.
Been here several years. Only just clicked to me how predatory Big 4 are. Business model is to use cheap, underpaid labor from college grads who can't go elsewhere or pay debts. Churn em and burn em.
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
If you took another offer and resigned but then got an interview for a dream job, do you disclose in the interview that you’re no longer employed at your current firm?

Looking to exit to a tech company - has anyone ever approached a DEI person at the company you are applying to on LinkedIn? Is this something worth pursuing or should I just apply directly?
DCA is a cluster right now. Been on the ground almost an hour now waiting on a gate to open.
What does vacation time look like outside of the United States? (Pls share where you live) When I was young, my family lived abroad and we were able to go on long vacations - sometimes as long as 6 weeks. My dad was an engineering consultant and we were by no means loaded with cash. It seemed to me that going on vacation for a long period of time was the norm in places like South America and Europe. Is this still true? I’d love to be able to do the same kind of things for my own kids one day.

Assurance staff vs. Audit associate? What is the difference? Which position is better? (salary, work hrs, travel, exit opportunities...)?
A recruiter reached out to me directly from IBM Canada to interview for a Cloud Support Senior Program Manager role. I’ve got just under 10 years of professional work experience - 2 and half as a PM and have worked vendor before. I also have my PMP and disciplined agile certs. Can anyone give me insight on this role and what could be comp? I’m in Toronto and also wanted to know the culture and crowd.
So interviewed at an airline company for analyst position. Apparently they expect everyone to return to office most days, max 2 remote days a week. I LOVE remote work. I'm not micromanaged and can complete my work efficiently. - is this something negotiable? Any other airlines not requiring a return to office? Looking for flight benefits and remote work in combination...

Anybody trying to be my Spanish speaking partner? Looking for anyone. If multiple people want to we can do a group thing where we’re all on zoom just speaking in Spanish too. I’m a beginner...

Accepted an offer and my start date is mid October. I asked about background check results and if they were going to send me an email once everything was cleared. I was told they don’t do that. How am I supposed when to put my 2 weeks notice ? I wanted to take some time off between jobs but I want to have everything cleared before doing so.
