Is it possible to set boundaries at work after you’ve had none? Does it have to be gradual or just overnight your schedule becomes a fixed 9 to 5, M-F?

For more context, ever since wfh started, I’ve just been throwing myself into work and it’s made me miserable and tired. Want to re-establish a healthy work life balance.

I found a new project, but they said I couldn’t onboard until January, after the collective disconnect. Most people in my project/OP took PTO, but as a new hire, I didn’t have any...(1/2)

Feeling down and out.

From past few years, i am looking for job change but couldn't not go through the selection process. Usually none interviewer is sharing the reason for rejection. It is disturbing my mental health and peace. I am feeling out and depressed most the time as the current environment in organization is killing the mental health badly.
Anyone could help to find opportunities in HR operations, will be highly appreciated.

I got pulled off my project that was going really well and I was enjoying and am getting swapped with another analyst who apparently is messing up a lot and super behind on her project.

Does this happen often in consulting?

PwC peeps: short project or long-term at big bank? The anxiety is eating me alive.

A family member of a current pro bono client, who I’ve been working with on preparing a letter of support for the client, just asked for legal advice on a separate personal matter. I stopped the individual as soon as I realized where the conversation was headed and informed them that I was not their lawyer and therefore couldn’t provide any legal advice. The conversation ended there. But I’d like to know whether I did the right thing. Or if there was something else I should have said instead.
