My current lease is up next May when I’ll be coming up on 2 years with my firm and getting close to promotion. I’m thinking about asking to work from home permanently when my lease is up so I can move to a LCOL area and be closer to family. Would working remote hurt my chances for promotion?

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
How do you handle keeping the kids at home and both parents WFH? Do you take turns? Specifically, do you explain to your teams that babies need tending to throughout the day?
Living alone in a new city, I thought WFH would be lonely and depressing. Turns out I love not dealing with coworkers AND I've been reconnecting with old friends on animal crossing. This isnt so bad😂

Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Was upset with raise. Just got a text from mom. Dad is in the hospital. Called. She says he's fine. Can't believe I was bummed about my raise. As if slightly more money matters.
I’m waiting for the work from home email, like a kid waiting for a snow day announcement.
Really worried about 4-16 announcement. I left consulting. 696 lt nights. 1.87 M points Marriott. 246 Lt SPG , 300k points. All I ever cared about was lifetime plat, United and Delta x-over but now??
Was anyone on the GPS C&M call today? What did you think about Sundhar’s responses on the very pointed H1b questions?!
Just got a targeted offer in the mail for delta gold card with 75K bonus miles, $95 fee waived for first year. Yes? No? (Have CSR, AMEX SPG, travel pretty exclusively with delta)
How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
Quit my cushy job a few months ago because I was totally burnt out and mental health was shot. Thinking about quitting this industry all together - anyone else go through similar? Any advice? Thanks!
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?

Confirmed! Promotion from Specialist to Manager. Any thoughts on what to expect for raise?
Currently approaching manager promotion. And now everything is subject to Automated broker feed. Anybody with ally invest (formerly TradeKing) have issues adding it? I had troubles last year with it
My daughter just attended a new teacher workshop at a ROE. A Superintendent presented (not hers) and told this room full of new teachers, “Real teachers get to school at 7:00 am and go home at 8:00 pm.” Really?? As a veteran teacher of 26 years, I was appalled! Makes sense why new teachers are leaving the classroom in their first five years and why we have a teacher shortage in Illinois with those type of expectations.
