Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

How do you handle keeping the kids at home and both parents WFH? Do you take turns? Specifically, do you explain to your teams that babies need tending to throughout the day?
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!

Due to the scarcity of projects, I was staffed into a project I despise, notorious in the office for being ‘toxic’. It’s a very tech/programming role (I’m in MC, nothing to do with my area), manager is high strung and lashes out often, sometimes blaming things on me (or others) which isn’t my fault. It’s really taking it’s toll on my mental health, I’m unfulfilled, not learning and skills I value, and on edge all the time. What is the best way to go?

BCG fish - what is a product manager - pricing role. Got reached out to about an opportunity, but it’s a little unclear what the role entails and what part of the firm it falls under / Reputation
it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
