My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
WFH is going swimmingly 😎
I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?
OMNICOM HASN’T ANNOUNCED WFH YET - WHAT ON EARTH ARE THEY WAITING FOR? WHY DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND THE URGENT NECESSITY TO BE PROACTIVE HERE??
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
New associate and our firm is slowly returning to the office. I really like my work from home setup that includes an ultra wide monitor and a another monitor in portrait mode. Would it be frowned upon to replicate this in my office?
What are some ways you all keep yourself busy and motivated outside of work? WFH life is starting to make me feel like my sole purpose is working :/ I do enjoy the job, I’m just starting to feel like I’m losing who I am outside of work
I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
Assuming extended WFH, do you think firms will change policies about international WFH? Seeing more and more islands open the borders for remote workers and winter 2022 is hopefully looking a lot less cold 😎

Teachers who struggle with depression: how are you coping this year? I can get myself out of bed but I have such a hard time being motivated and staying focused once I sit in front of my computer (we are remote). This career has really done a number on me over past year and I've been wondering how much longer I can last...

Does anyone know if Duff & Phelps (now Kroll) is work from home or in the office (Atlanta location)? What is the breakdown between time in office and WFH?

Deal sleds. Since we’re not wearing suits again, should we be going casual? I’ve been thinking about my post-WFH attire.
Does anyone believe that this last school year during the pandemic was an epic failure? Who sees the last school year as a success? Please, explain. No judgment either way.
What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
family annual expense at approx 100k. Emergency savings currently at 60k. Brokerage account at 60k as well. Already have a house but would like to buy a bigger one in 5 years. Should we put the extra money each month towards savings account (which pays 0.6% interest) or stop contributing to savings and put more in investing? Looks like neither is good option at this time
Hello Fishes. I’m currently working at Company X, and I’ve completed my technical round with Deloitte USI for US BTC SCON Role. The interview went positively, and I’ve filled out pre-hire pre-requisites form(s). Does this mean Ive gotten through or is this just the next step before salary negotiations? If yes, what can I expect my offer to be? CCTC: 10LPA (Fixed+Variable) YOE: 4.5 TIA.
Anyone left their jobs after having a baby to stay at home? I never even considered but just left on maternity leave and don’t think I can see myself going back to biglaw or honestly any other corporate job. If money isn’t an issue and I don’t like what I do, is it worth fighting to keep going in this profession? Guess I need some words of encouragement…
anyone here with a high cash base salary? if so, is it at a company or a fund and what year are you and when did you start?
Dear TCSers... I got a call from a TCS er.. last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Currently doing my EMBA at CBS, let me know if you have any questions I am waiting on a flight
Brother just started working in NYC, with bare minimum salary (~$50k) and financially illiterate. I want to advise him to contribute to Roth IRA at least. Doesn’t do 401k yet as the company offers only after 1 year. What’s the best/most user friendly brokerage to set up one’s Roth IRA?

D.C. area folks - Will I encounter trouble or have a hard time getting an Uber/Lyft from Arlington to BWI? I’m trying to avoid Amtrak. Other recommendations are welcome. Thanks!
What would you value more when deciding between jobs (both non-PA) - a company w/ prestige or with work life balance & good benefits. Let’s say same salary and potential for growth. I’m ambitious but also totally burnt out and over public accounting.
Just got laid off today.... anyone hiring account executives? 3 years experience working across integrated campaigns in multiple industries. Hungry and eager to get back into the weeds!!
How is technology at Huge? Had a recruiter reach out and interested about WLB, what platforms they’re using, work they’re doing, general culture, etc. Tech culture in agencies can be weird so would love any info people have!
