Prefacing this with the disclaimer that I only started several months ago so maybe I’m missing something Definitely was interested in the “consulting lifestyle” during recruiting but I think if I were given the choice I would do remote forever with a big reason being that I think I have more time for stuff I like. If I have downtime now I can ride my bike, go hit golf balls, cook, whatever which would not be options if I were traveling or even just working in an office. Thoughts?
Hey Jersey folks that work in Manhattan. Is your office talking about reopening soon? Will you have the option to still work from home?
Let’s say for the sake of the economy the gov advices Americans to go back to work—shouldn’t those of us who can effectively still work from home continue doing so?
Bain fish, what’s the work from home policy? Do you have to live within a certain distance of your home office?
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
How to deal with MIL and husband’s side of the family who will never fully understand that I’m just as busy and work just as much as my husband? Background: both in big law, both doing WFH. He’s more senior than me, his work hours are more constant; I’m a corporate attorney and my hours ebb and flow. I feel like his family doesn’t take my job as seriously (or when I say my hours are unpredictable and demanding), expects me to be both a housewife and work while doing WFH. Husband is great tho

Okay so it’s my first week in a new career for a new company. I wanted to make a good impression so I stayed a little later to do some catch up before finding my way to a hotel (since I’m waiting for my apartment approval) but I fell asleep and woke up hours later with no one here and the lights out. I don’t want to accidentally trigger any security alarms trying to leave, but I also don’t want them to catch me spending the night here and assume the worst. How should I go about this?
Pro-bono personal assignment: I want to send a deck/recommendation to domestic insurance companies, trying to have them buy into an insurance discount for anyone wearing a motorcycle airbag vest and/or airbag pants.

Sometimes I wonder if the anxiety and anticipation leading up to the school year is/will be worse than when we're actually in the classroom, doing our thing, day in and day out. I hope so!
Special Education teachers and General Education teachers should work as a team together to help students mainstreaming, to be successful in the classroom.
Gave wife’s phone to kid with garage band app on in guided access mode. Wife took the phone, put it in her bag and left for work. She doesn’t know how to turn it off and can’t even call me without deactivating it. What do you guys think, should I cook her fav dinner or should I book a hotel room and leave before she gets back.
