How has your agency preserved company culture while the office has been closed and all employees are WFH?
Very thankful to have a week each month remote on my project. Let's be real, we don't need to be on the client site every week.
I hate the city I live in but I love my agency. Since we’ve been wfh for months (and it looks like the rest of the year) I want to ask if I can continue to work remote so I can move somewhere I’m happy. Thoughts on how to approach management?
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.
Fun poll: what are the two things you'd hate to run out of while wfh? For me, it's face cream and chili salt.
Base office in NYC, but been living in Texas for the past couple of months and might stay here for the next few months (since wfh is the default in my firm now) - can I get away from paying NY income taxes?
6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB. How do you go about getting a government job and are they flexible about WFH, at least a couple of days a week? Recruiters reach out all the time, but always about other firm positions. Tips/ advice much appreciated!

Previously burnout but now recovered from wfh. Unsure if I should still quit since most of my friends are gone Background: -homegrown senior and have received early promotion (Cont.)

Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
Work from home = 250 steps on Fitbit 🤔
Anyone else experiencing toxicity in remote startup environments? Greater abuse of time and personal freedom, less encouragement of empathy from leaders, delusions of far greater diversity accomplishments, lack of clarity and communication… How to clear the air and establish structure from afar… or GTFO?
What are the range of salaries for a Sr. Buyer who does the contract during the Procurement process? Remote so any range would help. I was a logistics specialist E-5 in the Navy, then was a Manager at Amazon for 3 years, now I have 2 years with contract experience through IT software purchase. I feel I'm being underpaid, and would like to see what some of the salaries are. Thanks, Mike

I believe I am a nice person. I get a lot of praise from coworkers outside my direct team that I am great to work with. However I get a sense that my direct team members don’t like to work with me or try and compete and brings down the work culture. Is there a way to fix this?
Best place to practice interview questions for tech? Both case and behavioral questions..
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.

Do you think getting an MBA significantly helps if you want to transition to PM (product management) from tech consulting? Trying to weight the costs and benefits, especially since they're so expensive and know it can be done without one
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 ?

What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group

Guidehouse 🐠, what’s the salary range for a Senior Associate with the Business & IT Strategy group? Also, is a Senior Associate equal to a Deloitte SC?
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
