I know what all my female coworkers kids look like because they’re always in their lap or in the camera view on meetings. But I can’t say the same for my male coworkers... are men really not helping with their kids during WFH or is this just an illusion of my zoom calls?

Is anyone going else confused and upset agencies are making people go back into the office? Commuting is horrific and wastes time, and honestly I work more efficiently from home without distractions. All for the option to go in, I just think it’s super tone deaf to make people go in again. The world’s changed. Don’t move backwards.

Curious how others feel about this. I recently had a female co-worker of mine tell me I look tired on Zoom, that I have bags under my eyes, and I look washed out. She went to on to recommend certain extra coverage foundation etc. I just had a baby so admittedly I probably do look tired. She also knows that. She’s more senior than me but she’s not my boss. She admitted she wouldn’t tell a male associate this type of thing. Is this constructive feedback or totally inappropriate?

Is it normal for directors to indirectly tell you to bill 45hrs to a client with no cap to get your utilization up and to increase their collections? There's probably 5hrs of actual work for me to do. First year in consulting, so I don't know if this is the norm. I've also had another scenario where the invoice was too low and was asked to add a few more hours to the bill
