I’m solo on my client site and never at the office. I am an experienced hire, I wouldn’t know anyone if I went in the office. How do you deal with the loneliness that comes with remote syndrome?
My client got F'ed over by one of their employees failing to disclose some things to the SEC I caught it brought it to the clients attention now I'm stuck doing diligence on over 100 employees. I keep catching things. I feel like I'm creating more issues for the clients but at the same time I'm protecting the firm as a whole which they're thankful for. Do I have anything to worry about by finding all these problems?

Hey ladies, I have to vent. I’ve been in a friends with benefits on and off situation with this guy for 10 years. I recently hit him up because we haven’t spoken in a year and I missed him. Long story short, he cheated on his current gf with me. I asked him if he had any regrets. He said he feels bad, but it was worth it. I just don’t understand how he can physically melt in my presence but after all this time doesn’t want to *be* with me

What do yal do to make yourselves feel better when you’re declined for an opportunity? Just got turned down for a professional development opp at my company and very blown about it because the application process was super disorganized and the selection was made by fellow senior consultants in the program, not managers / leadership. It would have offered me a route to a lot of education / certification opps that otherwise wouldn’t be sponsored, and I felt I had really good experience in my app.
