Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!

Alarm->Snooze->Alarm->Coffee->Lift->Iron->Shower->Check Calendar ------ oh, right. I'm on PTO today. womp womp
Is it a consulting thing to get guilted into working on PTO or is this just an adult thing?
My management brag about how little PTO they take - it makes me not look up to them but rather pity them & think I'm in the wrong firm. No one regrets the days they didn't work on their death bed.
Books to read as a newish manager? I struggle with feeling guilty directing people to do things when they seem busy and expressing disappointment

Which books would you recommend for in house counsel about strategy, management, and leadership? Asking as product counsel for tech startup.
I'm an account manager, but want to get better at helping and managing my team. So, I've started doing some of the copywriting myself so I can get a better feel for what's involved, what's needed, and how I can help others improve. I recently attended an SEO conference and then spent a weekend reading everything I can get my hands on. I've also got a reading list I'm building out. What are your favorite books and sources to become better at copywriting?
There's a ton of self help and leadership books out there to help people in their careers. If there was one that was written front the lense of a public accounting, would you read it?
Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.

My dog is the biggest mamas boy. We will be out of town for a week soon and when we took this vacation last year, he wouldn't walk with anyone but me. I want my cousins kids to be able to walk him this year, any ideas on how to do this?
Salary range for manager at Deloitte in Chicago?
Have an interview tomorrow for a job slightly outside my experience (coming from valuation in an accounting firm. Job is Portfolio Management Analyst) but it pays 12% more with 20-30% bonuses. The recruiter said the team was impressed with my background and said I was "senior but willing to accept a (lower) salary" that was in their range. The salary is at the lower end of my range but it makes me feel like I should hold out for more. OTOH I'm afraid of missing the hiring boat. Help!
Can anyone share info on what salary + bonus I should base my expectations on at Deloitte coming in as a consultant w/ two years industry experience + undergrad?
Mimi.. what an amazing movie!! A mainstream indian movie worth watching after such a long time.

Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.

Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)
