I currently have multiple fully remote software engineering roles open - experience working with React/Node and other modern front end technologies is required - Brian@wtechco.com
All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do? YOE-2.5
Anyone know if Martin is fully remote? Seeing some current employees who live in NY on LinkedIn, and wondering if it's a tree I should bark up.
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
Getting emails at all sort of times and days. This work from home thing is really setting a bad precedent
Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.
Work from home = 250 steps on Fitbit 🤔
What agencies have gone complete WFH?
Planning a weekend getaway for my aunt’s birthday this year. She would like something local and a bit remote to allow lots of reflection/meditation. What local areas do you recommend? I’m in DC/MD.
How was work from home in Deloitte before covid?
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.

WFH problems: how do you explain to IT that you need a new laptop because your dog peed on your current laptop?
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know

Since WFH, does anyone else find it difficult to start on new projects mid-day? I feel like once I hit that afternoon slump, any type of motivation is gone. Any tips to stay afloat? 😂
Lately I’m becoming more frustrated that I’ll never be able to buy a house out here despite making a good salary. And with my job, I can’t move somewhere affordable and be fully remote. Anyone else?
Will high tax states reduce property taxes, and raise sales taxes to game the new tax scheme?
Posting again hoping to get some responses. Director of fund admin vs controller. Which is better and why in terms of pay and how each role is perceived in and outside of a firm. Or are they essentially the same thing?
My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice. It’s harder to have a hostile work environment when you don’t have to be in a work environment 5 days a week (sometimes 6). For context, I’m a POC.
All 5 interviewed pediatricians say they will be sending their kids back to school without hesitation. What do you all take from this? Does it change your mind on sending your kids back? https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/5-pediatricians-on-the-safety-of-schools-amid-pandemic-87569477784
Career question. Currently a big4 financial tax manager doing mostly fed compliance. I do not wish to become a partner as selling business is not my thing. I've been entertaining two exit options. Exit now as more of a general accounting role hoping to be a controller one day vs wait couple more years and exit at SM/director level hoping to be a head of tax or tax director somewhere. The end goal for me is to make as much as possible and be able to retire from corporate grinds.
I'm on Pretend Time Off and just took an urgent client call from the blackjack table. Won the four hands I played while I was on the call. Maybe I should do this more often.
Recruiters: for junior roles that disclose compensation up front, is there ANY negotiation after an offer? Have you ever rescinded an offer bc of negotiation?
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?
Debating a good time to retire. Would $10m nw incl real estate be good enough a kitty if kids education is funded?
HBS MBA program. How did you crack the nod?
It’s time for health insurance enrollment. I live in Wisconsin/Milwaukee.. I don’t always struggle to pick the right provider. Any recommendations?
Current McKinsey folks: can anyone elucidate the “Senior Client Delivery Analyst” role within McKinsey Academy? I’m interested in Strategy as well as other areas of management/tech consulting. This seems to be in a very specific space. Any details appreciated!
What to do if you’re only 40 hours away from meeting the Covid bonus target due end of Sept. and your partners don’t give you work even though you begged everyone for work?
