I feel for the jr’s who have started their careers in this remote world, missing out on all the experience that comes with being in an office surrounded by people and creative work instead of the silo of WFH. Any suggestions on how to keep them engaged and learning without it feeling forced with zoom tutorial sessions?
Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
Any one else feeling a little disenchanted with NYC? I’ve spent the past two months wfh staying out of state... being by beach/woods has been so grounding, it’s mad cheap and just easier way of life
Losing focus and desire to work today. Is it because it’s Monday or because it’s week 8 working remote? 🤷♀️
Honest question - do others here wake up at like 3 or 4 AM just randomly since quarantine / WFH has started? I used to sleep soundly through the night but I feel like this happens multiple times a week and I live a very active lifestyle so feel like I should be out until my alarm wakes me
Shameless plug to a LinkedIn post that I wrote yesterday. Lists upon lists of remote companies including EMEA/APAC roles. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chris-day-2021_opentowork-remotejobs-fishbowlapp-activity-6857385362189299712-Lboo
WFH Consultants in Jacksonville Mayor just announced that all parks and beaches in Duvall County are open. Who will be brave and who will stay away?
Anyone find it suspect when some Partners throw around "I'm sure we all would prefer to be in person..." type things? Like do you hate your family or something? Maybe I'm getting to used to remote work 😬
Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!
Going to be starting a new job soon (in consulting) after a break when I adopted a dog. She is still learning and I don’t trust her to stay quite through all my meetings. Do you think this is going to be an issue? How can I best manage the situation while we’re WFH?
Have your firms and companies begin to worry about your new hires over the next 1 to 5 years. Every one from the class of 2020 to the class of 2024 that went to brick & mortar colleges is negatively impacted in their overall education experience. So we should expect those grads to require special care when they join the workplace. We should also expect many tier 3, and some tier 2 universities to also struggle financially as remote learning becomes a more formidable competitor.
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
Are you guys enjoying this mandatory work from home? Or you are so bored and ready to go back to office?

I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?
Ideas for what to order for a remote team happy hour? We can expense something to get delivered to every team member before hand. Also looking for fun activities to pair with it (thinking trivia or something?). Open to any and all ideas!
Has anyone stayed in Federal consulting outside of the DC area? Fully remote? Just Curious if it is possible.
Any Deloitters can share a little bit on how the pension works? From what I see 401k is 25% match of 6% of salary. Then pension is 1.5% of base?
How much can an affiliate marketer make in tech companies? This is for an entry level/associate role.
When bored in your project city...eat ice cream 🍦🍦🍦
Any female 🐠 from NYC, want to forget about all this corona virus hysteria and grab a drink this weekend?
What's the going rate for b4 managers these days with 7-8 yoe? Considering a boomerang but might be seen as green for a director role since I left b4 as an SA.
Does Accenture match? I have an offer from a relatively less known firm with a significant salary hike. Will it be a bad move to go to HR?
Setting up a 401k for the first time. Did you decide to do pre-tax or post-tax? Why did you decide that? Retirement savings and options are all overwhelming!
I am planning to put my papers without any offer, and then look for offers in the next 3 months. Is it a right decision? Please guide me on this 🙏🏽
Does Accenture taking COVID proof isn't discriminating the folks who haven't taken vaccine for health or religious concern?
Anyone travel to Massachusetts recently? Do they ask for a negative covid test at the airport? And results from rapid covid test work as a proof?
Accepted an offer, but the day before another company came at to interview. They offer more pay, better benefits, works more in line with what I want. But they haven't given me an offer yet, I just have a very good feeling. If I do get offer 2 how bad is it to go back on offer 1?
6 hour delay @ CLT Airport - If another frumpy woman in sweats and a puffy neck pillow hits me with her tacky rollerbag...
Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
Any good books on disciplines and raising a strong confident girl ?My 4 old is such a cry baby and screams a lot. We are both in consulting so tend to pamper her out of guilt. She is still not contd
When I was laid off 2 weeks back, I thought I would miss the big 4 culture, travel and hotel logistics. But 2 weeks down the road with a job in hand in my local city with zero travel, (contd)
Why don't more partners (esp. tier 2/MBB) just retire at ~40-45? What keeps a person going at that point? I get working a job that's meaningful and and for a cause close to heart, but why work an objectively demanding job when you have multiple millions saved and a fairly high level of prestige in your field?
