I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
Officially working remote instead of client site. Top three things that came to mind: 1) more doggo cuddles at home 2) comfy clothes 3) shit, I’m gonna have to buy groceries 😂
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
I’ve secretly been loving the WFH situation and it’s been great spending more time with my kids and seeing them throughout the day. I’m really not looking forward to going back to the office when we reopen. Anyone else in the same boat? I’m going to be so sad.
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.
Art Directors and Designers, what does your WFH work station look like? I’d like to upgrade mine to be more robust than just my laptop.
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?

I interned and started my career all within the confines of quarantine. Any tips for standing out when all you’ve known is remote work?
How are you dealing with WFH and small children? I either need to cut my workload or completely disregard my children. I don’t want to be put in the mummy track. This virus is like the mummy trap.
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
My final interview at EY was cancelled and no information was provided as to why it was cancelled. Should I be worried? Or was it just a scheduling conflict?
So my 18yo daughter who just started college texted me that she wants to do solo Europe travel in December and mom (my ex wife approved it). My daughter has traveled extensively in the US and abroad with me. However, she has never traveled even to a neighboring town in the US solo and is just learning what it means to live by herself as a freshman. I'm very concerned for her safety but if I put my foot down, my daughter will detest me. How do other parents in this bowl see the situation?

Anybody in Cincy? Will be staffed on a long term project there... Looking for some recommendations or at least someone to drink with
I really need advice please. I’m a newly promoted S1 in Tax & I’m extremely conflicted. I really wouldn’t mind staying till manager. While I work extremely long hours, I find the work interesting & I enjoy working with my team. I don’t plan on having kids for a while so I really just want to do the best to put myself in a position where I will be the most successful in the long term. People who left at manager, do you think it helped or hindered you by staying that long?
Hi All, If you need a referral at Amazon, please share your resume at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I know that it likely “depends” and varies from firm to firm but does anyone have any insight on (or experience with) whether firms rely on “total billable hours” or “total billable hours credit” to determine whether hours have been met/bonus applies?

Long term goal is to be a tech entrepreneur. I was all set and had my decision not to get an MBA, but then I checked LinkedIn. For almost every major tech company founded by a consulting alum, they all have MBAs. Am I missing something major here?
