Does VP or SVP really mean anything in Talent or Business Affairs? Does it actually bump salary up significantly or does it just mean a free parking space that no one is using since we’re WFH? Genuinely curious as I see some people with VP or SVP that have less experience than many with just a Sr title.

Hi there! Looking for recommendations for things to do/see/eat in Gatlinburg, TN. I’ll be there for about a week (working remote for 4 hours in the morning M-Th and Friday and weekend off). We love to eat, hike, sight see, etc. I’m a huge adrenaline junkie as well. Also any dog friendly things to do would be super helpful. Thanks in advance!!

Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.

Something I’ve struggled with throughout WFH is feeling so distracted by every other thing around me and in my life that needs to be taken care of. I feel like when I was at the office I was mainly focused on work and now my mind wanders in a million directions. Does anyone relate and/or have tips to compartmentalize and stay focused? Love the flexibility of wfh but it’s truly been a nightmare for me in terms of productivity.

I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?

Deloitte ARAS vs. EY FAAS. Does anyone think there's any real difference between the two? It mind of seems like Deloitte's ARAS may involve more technical accounting (vs. like just prepping financial statements, ensuring compliance, etc.), but it's kind of hard to tell. I guess this may be more office specific (dependent on projects each office gets) than anything else? Also, does anyone know if Deloitte or EY expects people to be back in office most of the time anytime soon? Would prefer WFH..

I just needed to post this where people could relate. I’m 6 weeks along, constantly exhausted, and feeling a low level of queasiness all day. I’ve lost motivation to solve the most basic problems (like convincing my toddler she needs shoes to go outside) let alone run my project and lead proposals. I’m sure it’ll get better in the second trimester, but right now I spend the day counting down the minutes until bedtime. Any tips for survival are welcome!
