West Monroe - is there a culture of wfh (all or part time) for non-client service staff? Eg firm operations.
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
I’m waiting for the work from home email, like a kid waiting for a snow day announcement.
Expecting to wfh for the next month. Thinking how to strengthen my core. Going to try daily planks starting 30 seconds in hopes of reaching 5 minutes by day 30! Who’s in??
If I ask for remote after accepting offer from Accenture, will they agree? If they do, will they reduce package??
Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
Imagine if this virus hit thirty years ago. If it wasn't for the internet, allowing WFH and communications, the economy would basically collapse. It could be alot worse.
What are some impactful, remote (WFH) volunteer work I can do? I have some extra time on hand and can only think of education/tutoring.
Is it still a bad time to move to NYC? Would be WFH but wanting to get it over with and get out of parent’s house. Would be coming from FL so assuming it’ll be quite a shock moving there
Hi, I’m looking to intern/volunteer/freelance WFH; My background is in Communication and Digital Media: I also can assist you with admin tasks. FYI I speak Spanish, in case you need to translate docs.
Where do you work and what are your company’s plan to return to office? Is it fully remote, hybrid or mandatory in office? Curious to know if other workplaces are also enforcing vaccination as a condition of employment.
I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.

If your own kids go to school in your district, do you struggle with the different hats that you wear? I’ve done well with the academic side of things (coworker/parent), but she is getting older and the dynamic is changing. I teach at a fairly large high school. She is now in sports and coach is a coworker. And now I have some of her friends and teammates in class. Friends/students coming over will get awkward. Don’t know what I am going to do when she starts dating…
Anyone who’s not a creative recently start at a US agency where they are sponsoring your work visa? Trying to figure out if the TN - Management Consultant visa is still possible and if not what the best visa is if I don’t have a ton of awards/press, or am able to transfer within the same company.

Can someone kindly connect me with Investment Banking HR/Recruiter/anyone willing to help? My friend interviewed for Goldman Sachs NY. Cleared the HireVue but didn’t get any communication further. It’s been 4 weeks now. Although the referral came from a VO but the division is different. My friend is looking for Investment Banking division. Need to get in touch with someone from investment banking to push the resume. The rolling process is hurting the chances.Thank you Goldman Sachs
I am currently a senior consultant at Accenture. Should I accept a position at MBB for an analyst position? Pay is very similar but it would be a downgrade in the role, but however it is MBB.
TLDR: First time H1B RFE =purely a wait game? got RFE last Monday, wrote to lawyer last and this Monday but haven’t heard back. Should I just sit and wait? How long does it typically take for people to hear back RFE results? I have friends who waited for 4+ months last year but also saw cases of a few weeks in this bowl. Confused and lost.

Former Senior Manager in Advisory here - does anyone feel like it’s a steep wall trying to break into tech industry for any role that has a manager title (e.g., Manager, XYZ Function)? I exited as a Senior Program Manager (IC role), I could absolutely not find anyone in industry willing to trust me managing people. Has anyone felt the same? What’s the reason for this wall? I’ve managed tons of teams and managed their career dev while at Big 4...what am I not seeing that I should see?
Got to the final round interview for roles at Google and LinkedIn but failed both. Anyone else struggling to get past final rounds due to the fact that consulting analysts are pretty much generalists and not specialized in anything? :/
Need advice! Am 24 and have an offer at a consumer D2C startup (<30 employees). The team is super smart and growing revenue fast enough to be on track for a strong acquisition in a few years (the end goal). My concern is it’s not tech based or a “name brand”. Could that hurt my prospects when I’m ready to exit? Like, are startups evaluated differently based on their products (tech vs non tech) or is it just the role at the startup that matters? Thanks so much for thoughts :)
Are Investment Research positions in BlackRock (and more generally IB) looked down on by people on the execution/transaction side? Secondarily, what’s the comp range for Director grades in IR at BlackRock?
What's the reason a recruiter would want to know my current benefits package (401k match & Salary)? I moderately understand why they try to gauge salary but 401k seems odd. Were they trying to wow me or is there some other reasoning?

Anyone work at GM? How’s the culture? Expecting an offer soon in strategy for new ventures
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
Not a points related question but I have TSA pre-check. I thought for certain airlines TSA pre-check would be added to whoever is under my reservation..is this not the case anymore?
