Anyone looking for Sr Copywriters? Open to moving but remote would be nice too. Open to anything really. Get me out.
Husband and I are moving to Seattle in a couple of months. His office is in downtown Seattle and mine is in Sodo. He wants to be able to walk or bike to work. I will be mostly WFH but want to be relatively close to office. We also have a pup. Any recommendations for neighborhoods or apartment buildings much appreciated! We would prefer to be close to parks and grocery stores vs. bars.
How many of you have flexible work arrangements where you're able to work from home one or more days per week?
Really afraid that MBAs will go back to remote and that I will waste the opportunity to get the time of my life
“As a general rule of human civilization, we’ve lived where we work. More than 90 percent of Americans drive to work, and their average commute is about 27 minutes. This tether between home and office is the basis of urban economics. But remote work weakens it; in many cases, it severs the link entirely, replacing spatial proximity with cloud-based connectivity. What knock-on changes will this new industrial revolution bring?” Thoughts? https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/02/remote-work-revolution/617842/
How long do you think this will last? GT is remote up to 3/31, it will definitely go past that. My bet is summer, but some have said the rest of the year. Others until we get a vaccine. Thoughts?
Tore my calf muscle this weekend. My first reaction (other than "fuck this hurts") was "WFH this week!" Think it's time for a new job, maybe?
How to put in two weeks notice if I want to submit it tomorrow and my whole team is wfh? I know I can just email HR but I want to give my team professional courtesy
Wrapping up mat leave soon & it’s back to work (from home) in a few weeks, & I’m going bonkers about how to manage two little ones in a small apartment while my husband is also WFH. How are people doing this? Any tips/childcare recos?
I started with my bar prep company in March and have been working remotely since. I don’t feel like I was ever properly trained (can’t tell if that’s because of poor management or WFH or both) but I have a hard time with the contract management system and have made several mistakes. Of course, I wasn’t trained in the CMS and am only taught how to do something correctly after I’ve don’t it incorrectly. Any advice on keeping things in perspective? I feel like I’m underperforming but only with tech
What's one thing you wish your current company would do that would make your job easier (i.e., work 3 days onsite and 2 days remote)?
Work from home goals!
Any recommendation of good apt for rent outside of city limits? I will be WFH often so no need to live in the city proximity such as Arlington. Looking for around $1,200 for 1bd 1 bath
How is work from home policy in EY India before pandemic ? And what is the current policy for in EY India regards to remote work?
Our office is moving to another building and is going to have a new “no assigned desk” policy. We just sit wherever we feel like sitting, like a 7th-grade cafeteria. Seems like their intention is good but also sounds like a terrible idea. Has anyone else’s office done this? Not even sure how I’ll be able to request a second monitor now
Uncharacteristically high number of pissed off travelers today. Glad I'm WFH this week..
Know someone else posted this too, but if your gyms are closed (likely) and since we are all wfh give this workout a shot. 40 mins and really good workout. Done it two days now and feels good.
After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional. Should you first ask for coffee chat, then later a case or can you ask for a case in your first “chat”? I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?
MBB recruiter said I'd hear about my application (whether or not I'd get an interview) by today. haven't heard a word - what should I do? I'm thinking of sending a gentle reminder tomorrow morning, but definitely don't want to look pushy
Broadly speaking, for a given generic consulting role, which B4 firm pays the most? Which pays the least?

How did you manage gmat w/ >14 hrs of client work + practice dev (internal firm)? How long did it take you to get that >90 percentile? Any tips on studying for gmat consistently?

So have a job offer from delta paying 80k and a job offer at eTrade offering around 110k. I like the position at delta much more, but I like the salary at eTrade. Any suggestions ?
What is BDO benefits like at the manager level?
New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.
Is an MBA worth it?
Anyone with experience hiring a maid-cook who lives in-house. I just went through a divorce and will need an extra hand with my kid - preparing for the new single life. All advice is welcomed
Leaving Chicago at the end of this month. The job market here has been tough. Feel like every job that I apply to gets canceled or put on hold which I understand. Not going to fly back. Going to be taking the long drive back home. I am trying to do what I can to find a job here in Chicago. Anyone know of any job leads or know of companies that are hiring here in Chicago? I love this city. Would like to stay here in Chicago.
Filed for family based green card last Dec and still waiting on EAD card. I am currently on H1B, but would like to change job when I get my EAD card. Is this too risky to do before getting my green card? Or is it ok to do?
Ex-kpmg employee here so can’t post in that bowl but does anyone here know how pension plan works? I was vested based on time with firm but does the money stay there til retirement or can you request lump sum payout and invest it how you want? Thanks!
I'm trying to buy a new carry-on size suitcase but am having trouble finding one that fits my requirements. Does anybody know a four wheel spinner bag that's: 1: decent quality build, particularly wheels and handle 2: has a lid that opens and one large compartment (soft or hardside but I don't like the two half clamshell hardsides) 3: looks decent (doesn't have to be fancy/designer, just something I'm not embarrassed to take to a client office) 4: under ~$300
A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest. She realizes her pattern due to some underlying issue she needs to resolve and is seeing a therapist, yet whenever we talk she goes into details related to this guy and about her dilemma. I have listened to her for 3 months and weighed in where I could, and I care about HER and her mental health. But if ask about her mental health she goes into stories about this dude. How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
I love my firm, but just got an offer to move firms for a bigger chunk of change and lower billable hours requirement. Logically, it makes sense to move, but I’m hesitant. Both firms seem great culture-wise. I am young and succeeding at my current firm. Any thoughts?
What to do when you generally like your office culture, albeit lacking in racial diversity, but your leaders make culturally and racially insensitive and tone-deaf remarks...
