Our school is modified remote. Students stay in one classroom all day. We wear masks full time. Another teacher has my kids during planning. She doesn't believe in masks. She wears a "mask", basically a lacy piece of fabric. She doesn't enforce masks either. I've brought it to my principal's attention in the past when she wouldn't wear a mask, but now she has a "mask", technically. My anxiety is high. I don't even want my kids to go to her, but I need a break. How do I handle this?

Truth be told I have never been through onboarding via remote. It’s a bit of a struggle. It’s taking forever to get access to certain resources and my assigned mentor is always underwater. How is everyone dealing with this? My manager seems hard to please in our first couple 1:1s.
SO recently got a job offer in OC. With wfh I likely won’t need to go to DTLA to the office. And for client travel I could go to SNA/LAX once a week if need be. We’re in our late 20s making $325k no kids. Where would be a good place to move/buy? I’ve seen laguna mentioned but Zillow house prices there are absurd. Newport seems too conservative given we’re POC. Irvine too stale for my liking unless there are spots in Irvine other than spectrum that I haven’t been to. Thanks!

Hi ladies! Looking for recommendations on good cyber Monday deals for any of the below: - sports bras / workout leggings - comfy tshirt bras - loungewear (joggers mainly) - cozy / oversized sweaters - warm & good quality socks - any other items that has made your WFH life easier / more productive!! Appreciate it!
Should one add their personal technology that are currently used for remote work on their resume? Seems most companies will provide the hardware and software needed. However, it’s unclear if the employer will provide this through Teamviewer/VPN connection or will send an actual computer. Along with this, would it be pertinent to add your internet capability (speed, fios/cable/satellite/dsl)?
People who are permanently remote, why do you still live in NYC? Would you move if presented the opportunity?
Anyone catch that insufferable FCB WFH video?
Just got the official word yesterday. WFH is now permanent with the option to come into any office, anytime you like if you’re vaccinated. They say it’s the new normal and the way we’ll all work going forward. Would post this in CX, but that bowl is sleepy. Also, we have 80 open jobs…
While remote, I always have protein shakes for breakfast. Never considered taking it on the road because of security...anyone have experience with this?
What are things that you have purchased for your older infant/toddlers that are game changers? Since I’m wfh, I am trying to keep them as comfortable and occupied as possible.
Can we make a thread about different agencies’ return to work policies? Really so I can just go apply at every agency that’s staying remote before I have to go back to the office this Fall.
Anyone bought a compact folding treadmill and have recommendations? Thinking about it to get some movement while WFH and winter. Mainly want to walk on it not run.
Anybody hear of negotiating an extended delayed or remote start? Got a job offer that would require me to relocate (no relo support included), but partner would prefer to wait 6mo to move.
What is the general vibe for the first week or so post 9/15 deadline? Do people work from home? Do people even show up in office? If you do show up, do you even "work" for the first few days?
When do you let the potential/new employer know you’re a new mom? When and how did you negotiate the flexibility from a new job (WFH, leave early etc)?

Nice! The post animation looks good!
If you want to go out this summer to a bar and meet new people like the social beings we are, you should be able to. If you go to an essential place like a grocery store, mask up. This is so simple and I can’t believe there hasn’t been agreement on it.
My M just gave me the following feedback about being professio. Is he correct? This is my first time getting this feedback. 1. The way I wear my hair (I wear it natural or in a pony) 2. During a Zoom call I went to place a dirty mug in the sink (4 feet behind me). 3. He said I fidget too much on camera ( I have mild ADHD). 4.Tshirts are unprofessional and I should wear blouses
Struck out on MBB recruiting, I have never felt so defeated in my professional life. Now I question whether my MBA (M7) was even worth the investment. I am aware that this is a function of the bubble I am in, but up to now I thought I was doing relatively well professionally, apparently not 😟
Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.
I just got my third remote full-time job, each making 175k and live at HCOL city. I love working remote and still have the best WLB although I’m still struggling on my finances. What am I doing wrong?
Has anyone had acupuncture done in the US? My friend’s dad gets it for headaches and swears by it. Any success stories?
What hobbies are people doing now? Getting a bit bored of books and TV, so would love to hear what you’re all up to!
What would Trump say if he was a consultant?
Any EY 🐠 in the Seacucus, NJ office!? 🤔
Thoughts on a Tumi (or similar style) backpack instead of an over the shoulder bag? Tempted by the comfort aspect, but it seems a bit casual / juvenile...
