What should I expect when trying to exit into a more competitive (geographical) market? My home office is in a developing country (think non-EU/US, G20), I’m looking at Biz Ops/PM roles in tech in Western Europe. How much should I expect to be able to leverage my consulting/McKinsey background in this context?
What are some complexes you would recommend for a spacious 1br 1ba (or 2br 1ba) under $2K near the battery. I’m a young professional thats permanently remote and needs space to set up a nice home office.
Does rotating among 3-4 clients for no more than a month each requires LCA? Some in the same city as my home office and some are not.
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
So, any NON standing desk recommendations? I don’t really like standing desks. I’d like something that looks decent, that has at least some storage, with a good amount of… square footage, I guess?
Thoughts on nomad lifestyle? My “home office” is 3 hrs from my parents. I want to see if others have done this success. I have friends that I can crash with occasionally on Thursdays, bus elsewhere.
Had a minor back injury (should heal on its own) but I don’t think sitting in an office chair all day is helping. Any ideas to make it more bearable?
does anybody know how to be an expatriate in big4? My understanding is you will still get paid based on your home office location(e.g. US) but being stationed abroad.
My home office had a makeover and I upgraded to a standing desk! I now have a box of books and college textbooks ready to donate. Is there anywhere I could take them to donate considering... South Fl
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Has anyone purchased a whiteboard for their home office ? Any specific brands you’d recommend. White board wall paint seems to have fallen out of favor - does anyone have experience with that ? Thanks
Thinking that anytime I'm in the SkyClub it is wine o'clock, even if I wouldn't be drinking at 3pm in the office (or home office).
Question about expensive mileage while traveling. If you are in a city (greater than 100 miles from home office), do you still subtract out your normal office commute mileage on a daily basis?

Pereira O’Dell San Francisco?
Joined straight out of college, thoughts on how long I should wait before moving offices? Any detriment to making the switch in a promotion year?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
At the big 4, why is cyber security usually in risk advisory/assurance and not in consulting?
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
Did anyone get the SPG announcement email saying the accounts merge is going to be official come August? Does this mean our SPG points will start diluting??
Is taking an internship at a very good/very big agency worth It? Any horror stories of not getting a job and screwing yourself after an internship concludes?
Are sick days a thing anymore, or is it just working from home to not fall behind when you can't physically go to work? Asking from my bed.
Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?

Will I need a negative covid test to board a flight back to NY (LGA) ? Has anyone have flew into NYC recently & could tell me their experience? Thank you, for I will be in the MO this upcoming weekend. When I call their state center, it appears most testing sites are closed on Sat/Sun. (Please no snooty/rude comments, I haven’t traveled since March & been been staying at home expect for needed errands. This is not a leisure trip by any means. )
Right before Labor Day, after 2 months of dating, my guy made us “official” and asked me to be his girlfriend. (He made a romantic event of it, arranging a picnic by the lake). Ever since then, everything’s been great. until tonight. His ex, who he says he broke up with a couple of weeks before we met, called and says she could be pregnant (took a home pregnancy test and is going to the doctor ASAP). I’m full of all sorts of questions and feelings I’m not sure I have a right to. Advice?

I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.
Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Feeling burnt out, like I’m not doing great work, in need of a major life change, and that I’m just in survival mode until the Holiday break. Meanwhile I feel guilt of having a stable remote job unlike so many others around the country. Someone tell me that I’m not alone
