WFH lunch dates with the SO are great… But it’s always so tough to find the motivation to get back to work.

So just throwing this out there. Can agencies give us WFH bonuses to cover the cost of setting up a home office? I had to invest quite a hefty sum for a desk, office chair and upgrade my wifi connection. Also, can we deduct our work space rent area for tax purposes? Every little bit helps!

Client recently offered me a job for an open req (industry eq SM). The work is flexible, the req is just to get me in the door but I decide what I want to work on (which I trust to be true). Much better culture, wlb, etc., but I’d be taking a 100k pay cut and be an IC with no team. Is it worth taking a step back in pay and responsibilities, or does it seem possible to get all in one?

Hi fishies! Considering an internal big 4 move from Western Europe to Dubai. Not sure about WLB and whether there’ll be enough growth and learning opportunities after reading some of the threads here. Anyone up for sharing their experience? Especially concerned about sexism / racism as a WOC…and whether moving back to Europe in a few years will be difficult because the ME experience won’t be considered valuable.

My soon-to-be MIL tends to very nihilistic and pessimistic about nearly everything that my fiance and I have to say. For instance, when my fiance told her that she's going back to school to switch careers, she was not supportive, but rather discouraged her from going to school out of fear of my fiance getting overwhelmed. This is just one of many examples and it's really taking a toll on us and our ability to have a relationship with her.

Anyone dealt with something similar?
