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...
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.
I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home? I’m a recent college grad in the US and I’m the only child. My current firm’s office is ~2 hr from my (mom’s) home. I can’t live with and take care of her once the WFH is over. I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?
Hi, I’m looking to intern/volunteer/freelance WFH; My background is in Communication and Digital Media: I also can assist you with admin tasks. FYI I speak Spanish, in case you need to translate docs.
For those who have gotten degrees and certifications, how do you find the time to study with kids? Mine are not in school yet and don’t go to daycare. Hubby doesn’t work from home and we don’t have anyone to help with childcare either. I’m already working late hours and waking up early to get work done.
Moving to NYC next year, and my SO is based in Seattle. He is very keen to spend more time with me in NYC, even suggesting living there while remote working is still a thing. I’m a little hesitant bc we’ve only been dating for 2-3 months and it would feel like moving in tgt. Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?
Are law firms switching to remote work due to COVID-19? If not, how are your firms responding?
I have a chronic illness and WFH has saved my career. There is no way I would have been able to commute to and work in an office consistently. Now, none of my coworkers even know I’m sick.
Transferred to the UK and got a fresh WFH set up budget Thoughts on dual monitor (24”) vs. ultra wide vs. 32” + laptop as second screen?

Any insights into telecommute roles in UnitedHealth in Tennessee and Georgia - job titles at Manager and Director level? Does it mean work from home?
For those who do not wish to submit to compulsory vaccination and weekly testing, when do you plan on having that tough conversation with your partner? As RSM just announced it will comply with the Presidents order, do we wait or do we have the conversation now?
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
West Monroe - is there a culture of wfh (all or part time) for non-client service staff? Eg firm operations.
How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
Is it possible to get insurance at the same rate or better rate without being in corporate? Honestly started here for the insurance and investment benefits so want to know if there are other options!

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."

Hi everyone, quick question: SO and I were applying to some home loan together and he asked what my date of birth was so he could enter it in. Is this normal or does it just show that they don’t care? We’ve been together for 5 years now. Thanks! I’m leaning towards the latter so slightly hurt lol how would you feel?

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.
