West Monroe - is there a culture of wfh (all or part time) for non-client service staff? Eg firm operations.
I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!
Best spots to meet people if things ever open back up? All this WFH has me convinced I have should get to know the area I pay rent in nowadays...
If I put in my two weeks notice, can I just not come into work some days? They can’t do anything if I’m already quitting right? I assume it’d come out of my PTO
I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359
Any recommendations for a portable second monitor? Ideally something that would fit in a carry-on? Since I’m still WFH, I’m taking a week-long trip to visit my sister. We’ll both be working during the week and I’d like to avoid working only from a laptop if I can.
I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over
Been on vacation for a week and I don’t want to go back tomorrow. Spending time outside, chilling with my dog and endless Netflix is so much better. 🙈
I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up. Do all the work given to me, pass my tests, follow up with people to look to get on an engagement. I feel like Im doing fine but WFH I feel very lost and alone as to what I’m supposed to be doing. Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?
Does D still penalize you for taking PTO? Did they change it recently? What is the utilization target for D Ms? How many days can you carry over to next year?
Starting a new job on Monday and will be remote for the foreseeable future. Anyone have any advice on how best to make yourself known to execs and other senior leadership while remote?
Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
2 years out of undergrad and planning to apply next year. I had a great relationship with an SM and decent with a partner, but since starting remote work due to COVID I have had virtually no face time with leadership bc of the size of my team and my responsibilities. Mostly just venting but ugh how do I get LORs!!
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
For big 4 M and above. Reached out to independence compliance desk about reporting cryptos exchange accounts and here is exact language for response: "as of now bjtcoins or other cryptocurrencies are not reportable l. Bitcoin wallets will be reportable in the future but that is also not in effect yet. We have not received information on when these changes will be taking place. For the short term, you do not need to worry about reporting them."
How long to reach out to HR after an interview? Had third round last Monday and was told I’d hear back this week (but was unsure). Just anxious to know what the answer is
Four day weekend... Honeydo weekend. If consulting doesn't work out I may do laminate flooring installations. What's your labor day project?
Can they disburse excess PTO for those who get fired on 11/16 to the rest of us?? It’s just in time for thanksgiving AND Christmas, too?!
Does other big 4 firms are hiring for TAS or FDD?? I am very interested to move to TAS from audit but don't really know if they are hiring.
I shop at BR and my client counterpart Shops at BR clearly. Some days we will have on the same shirt.....awkward.
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
Has anyone here started a non-profit org/ been a board member of one, in USA on H1B? Pls DM w/ your suggestions including immigration attorneys I should talk to. Really want to setup one for a philanthropic cause but google searches call it out as unlikely.
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Staying at the top floor of the Marriott and the roof starts significantly leaking. I hear drip drip for the rest of the night and can’t sleep. Gonna be a long day. 😔 #HowManyPoints?!
