Once the dust settles post COVID what do you think the hybrid model will look like for most companies with number of days in office vs remote each week?
Groundhog Day - WFH edition
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
What are some signs to help evaluate the actual WLB at a company? Seems harder now that everything is remote
We want what we can’t have. Right now we can’t travel for work. When we can have that again (don’t ask me when, because no one really knows), we’ll miss being able to work from home.
It looks like the initial WFH productivity was actually driven by fear of losing one’s job, not necessarily because WFH is better. https://www.wsj.com/articles/companies-start-to-think-remote-work-isnt-so-great-after-all-11595603397
What agencies have gone complete WFH?
Guidehouse folks! What perks do you have, i.e. coffee and meals expensed, Uber/Lyfts expensed, flexible/remote work?
Anybody else food cheat on their partners while wfh? I just had a nice bowl of ramen from my favorite place, delivered discreetly by Uber Eats. I cheated because I just wanted to eat what I feel without discussing it (used to be everyday lunch in good old days). I hope my partner doesn’t suggest takeout for dinner. :)

Base office in NYC, but been living in Texas for the past couple of months and might stay here for the next few months (since wfh is the default in my firm now) - can I get away from paying NY income taxes?
Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
Which privacy cert would you go for, CIPM or CIPT? Debating which I should test for, since I have competency in both. Which has better ROI for career, or in greater demand in industry?
Tips on saying no to a project opp? Reason is because I’m about to leave the company soon. Nothing lined up, but working on it.
Struggling to find work. Anyone know of any agencies hiring for programmatic or paid social roles?
I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
Any Phoenix fish? We are relocating from NC to Phx. It’s going to be our second time living there and I am dreading it. Please tell me what you love there so I can come into this with a tiny bit of hope?
Really want to look through some good work while I'm traveling this holiday. Where are the best places to search?
Going to India for first time stamping, I was advised to avoid Mumbai and Chennai due to increased scrutiny so I ve picked another location. What questions can I expect when you interview in a (1/2)
I've been putting my 401k into a target date fund, but the risk/upside just isn't high enough given I'm not retiring for another 30 years. Thoughts on putting it all in a large-cap growth fund (VIGIX)? Returns have been solid over last 10 years. Investing through work, so don't have all funds available to me.
When you hear the agency that laid you off “because of COVID” is currently hiring around your level. 😢
Unfortunately my wife is unable to return to work due to some medical issues. Her medical leave is about to end. I have always taken a backseat to support her career and worked from home CTND
I am interested in discussing joint marketing efforts with other solo practitioners (DC, VA, MD area) where we could have 1-2 lawyers within each legal specialty. I am federal practitioner (bankruptcy, tax, immigration, federal compliance, employment),so I could refer many other types matters to a joint group. We could maintain our solo practices, but have more joint marketing
Does anyone have a standing desk mat they recommend? I have a large L desk that is convertable and looking for one thst is comfortable to stand on but could also have a chair role over it for when I'm sitting
Are more massive layoffs coming? What industries (in-house/ecomm) are safest right now or during a recession?
Hiya! I was wondering if anyone here has any good recommendations in terms of books or learning material that I can pick up to learn about sales and marketing relevant to the consulting industry?
