LEK 🐠 or anyone else working late nights. What option do you think I should choose? Renting an apartment for a 45min commute but leaves me right with cash each month, or stay at home with parents for an hour and 15 commute and “rent” is basically 200

Stay home unless you want to grow up


Stay with parents for now, while we are still remote. With going into office optional. Then figure out how it’s working for you before pulling the trigger on renting a place


It keeps getting pushed back. It currently is set for 3/1 but I’d be surprised if it stays that

Don’t stay at home. It’s important to live on your own while your brain is still developing


Commute is pretty important - even while we’re not technically in office required. If you have the option to not pay for rent AND have such a short commute, I would take it, that’s a no brainer.


Ah - never mind. Honestly both hour and 15 and 45 commute are pretty bad when you’re working 12-14 hour days (sometimes more). There’s flexibility to commute home at the end of the traditional work day depending on your schedule and the case timeline, but both of those are pretty tough if you ever intend on going into the office for work.

I picked my apartment based on commute to airport and office.

Saving a couple grand a month pales compared to putting you in position to grow in your career.

You’re earning 90k base at the minimum, how does that leave you “right with cash”

Yeah I’m 15 mins away from the office at night with no traffic, ~30 in the morning, and I would hate a longer commute

Hi All. I’m considering an offer at DISH Wireless (Dish Network ). I wonder if anyone works/worked there and can give their opinion. All I see on Glassdoor etc. are terrible reviews and that worries me. I wonder if the legal department is ‘different’. Appreciate any feedback.

PwC Senior Partner Tim Ryan authored an article about Building Trust for the Harvard Business Review. There are some links in the article back to PwC's study. There is some interesting info in that study.

The article notes how PwC stumbled at the Oscars in 2017 and how TR took responsibility for that blunder.

I would have preferred him to address how - or if - he was taking responsibility for the mass exodus of talent at his organization. That seems more pressing than the 2017 Oscars.
