When you show up to client site and no one from your team or client team is there, how okay is it for me to wfh for rest of the day? No one tells analysts when they're taking PTO or wfh I guess 🤷♀️
Getting emails at all sort of times and days. This work from home thing is really setting a bad precedent
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
Any news on when offices are going to reopen?? Will it be mandatory to be WFO. Can we opt for perm. Wfh???? Please give updates on your company policies on this matter.
Planning on working remote from Colorado for about a month. Any recommendations on places/towns? Specifically, looking for towns that offer weekly/monthly furnished apartment rentals (outside of airbnb/vrbo/etc.) in addition to the outdoor activities (hiking, biking, parks)
Has anybody maintained 2 separate work from home jobs? Or know someone who has? I feel like this is an easier way to make sm/director level money ...
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB. How do you go about getting a government job and are they flexible about WFH, at least a couple of days a week? Recruiters reach out all the time, but always about other firm positions. Tips/ advice much appreciated!
Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?
I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump
What TV channel/ shows you guys have going on in the background while you work from home - for stress release / avoid anxiety
Anybody else tired of working from home/remote?
I have benefitted so much from WFH. I’ve had more time to cook, exercise, and get more sleep. The dread of returning to the office is getting to me and I hope we don’t have to return to the office again soon.
Any one know of any smaller consultancies with remote roles? I’m getting pretty burnt out and micromanaged at my current role, and I know I could get hired at a big firm, but I don’t know if I’m
My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice. It’s harder to have a hostile work environment when you don’t have to be in a work environment 5 days a week (sometimes 6). For context, I’m a POC.
@ KMPG PPL. I just accepted an offer to start in Nov. is there a date to go back in the office?And once everyone is back is wfh still going to be a thing partially? Wondering if I should invest in a desk and a good chair.
I feel like my coworkers are not taking coronavirus seriously, comparing it with Flu and heart diseases, planning travel to Italy, can ask for wfh because they don’t care and upset me?
Is it just me or have you noticed that the majority of staff these days are soft (ie can’t handle the long hours, complain more, feel entitled to work from home, quit earlier, can’t handle criticism)
I’m exhausted and need a week off. No one can cover me on this project. Feeling really stuck. Even a week of working remote would be a big gain.
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
Anyone else have a personal and/or work space that’s just absolute chaos? I haven’t managed to keep my bedroom/office clean for more than 1 day since COVID (granted it was also messy in the before times). Every surface is covered in laundry / dishes / papers / tech / cosmetics. God forbid my webcam ever shifted from it’s usual position and revealed my quarters to my coworkers (or clients!) Pls tell me I’m not alone in being a fairly well-adjusted adult with the bedroom of a teenager :|
What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far . I’ve interviewed for social media roles, BDR manager roles , always falling short on what they are looking for. Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?

How significantly are exit opps impacted as a SC2 vs M1 if trying to make the move towards Corp Strategy? Debating if it makes sense to stay on and make Manager. Travel burning me out.
I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now
Hello, Received an offer with D-USI with he start date as the middle of the month (15 Nov) How soon can we make our IT declarations before the payroll is processed? While I've maxed out 80C, a bit worried about losing most of the 1L join bonus to tax. For ref the fixed component is 14L.
Submitted a resume to a recruiter for a job last Monday. They called me within 2 hours and asked to schedule a phone call. The call went well, and they sent me all the necessary paperwork they need me to sign. I signed it within the hour and sent them an email saying I’m looking forward to working with them. Haven’t heard anything back since then. Is that weird? Does the recruiter actually think I am a good fit for the role? She sent me the name of the company and everything.
I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)

Any insights into SessionM? I know they were recently acquired by MasterCard but curious if anyone knows anything about culture, comp, etc?
About to wrap up a week+ vacation and instead of feeling well-rested and ready to work again, the thought of going back gives me so much dread. I’m not sure if I’m burnt out or depressed or just over where I work. Does anyone else feel like this? If I wasn’t saving for a down payment, I think I would want to take a leave of absence.
