In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Any 🐠 looking for a place to stay in Boston this winter? I am taking advantage of 100% remote work and going to Utah. Looking to rent out my furnished 2 BR 2Bath apartment, downtown- water view of the harbor next to the aquarium. $4k a month (renting at cost)
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back

I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
Business ideas in these trouble times? Either for profit or for impact. Thinking about Covid19 of course (Healthcare, quarantine, wfh...) but the recession (unemployment) or future end of recession..

I find it interesting the volume of talk about anti-anxiety meds has dropped off a cliff since the pandemic started. Are we feeling less social anxiety WFH?
Actually am getting pretty comfortable with this WFH arrangement. dont wanna jinx it 😬😬😬
For companies that will adopt more remote positions, do you think they’ll start offering candidates slightly lower salaries for the privilege of WFH full time?
Any budget friendly WFH chair recommendations? Was looking at a gaming chair, but bad reviews have put me off.
Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but does anyone have an eating disorder and find this way of life incredibly triggering? I was doing so much better when I was remote and local, and now that I'm always traveling, I'm not doing so hot.
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.
Does anyone have intel on the culture at the SapientRazorfish office in Austin? Specifically, how flexible are they when it comes to work/life balance things like WFH? Also wondering how benefits are.
New to comp. C here, my senior just took credit over my work on a meeting with our higher ups. Is this common? What should I do?

When you’re planning for PTO, do you ask your managers if it’ll be okay to take time off those dates or do you just give them kind of a heads up?
I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡
I am just wondering what are some of the great benefits one firm has but not the others? I think most of the benefits are common among big4 with little +/-.
Fastest promotion from A to SA that you know?
With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
