Started a new gig over a month ago and was very excited to work with my new partner but they haven’t been too welcoming, projects have not been collaborative (just me doing it and emailing it to them), they don’t really reply to my messages about work (started remote) and doesn’t really reply to any creative inspiration that I send to break ice. Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?

Older consultants: WFH is so nice, I can chill in my nice house, use my existing network that I formed over 10 years of in person work to get ahead, and delegate all my work to the analysts and spend time with my family

Young consultants: I don’t know anyone at my firm and no one knows me, I have terrible WLB and no work boundaries, I am stuck in a tiny apartment or have overstayed my welcome with my parents, and am not learning anything or getting any professional development

Accurate?
