Just had two team members walked because of this. No just “in trouble with HR.” Flat terminated immediately without severance. Project/account got no say at all either. Most firm things I say take with a huge grain of salt, but when it comes to areas the firm sees risk in, do not push your luck.

What happens when you get caught? Why scared? Are you on work visa?

They can see your IP address and possibly block it for security reasons. Are you sure you can even work remotely from out of country without being blocked? I knew someone who booked a rental in Puerto Rico thinking it was considered US, but IT would not allow them to connect from there for security reasons.

on a more serious note: has anyone done this? ans how did it work out for you? i srsly need a change🙃🙃🙃

And keep your work low key and strictly to your rental. Not all countries are pleased at this, and if you get caught in some counteies, you could be in trouble up to deportation. Also, check the wifi speed and reliability first.

I just went to the bathroom in the United club lounge before heading to my gate. There was a lady at the sink completely topless boobs all out all over the place and I think she was trying to take a half sponge bath in the sink, like taking wet paper towels and wiping her arm pits. Also no mask on. This is weird, right?

@ Current accounting professionals in the Big 4, do you regret going the accounting route? If so, what do you wish you would have done differently? I did my tax internship at a Big 4 recently but I realized I’m not really passionate about the work. But people have told me to stick with it because the experience you get translates well to other areas of business. So the decision I have to make now is either pivot to finance/something else or stick with Tax and regret it for the next X years.
