What are signs you should move on from your job? Been at my company for 5 years and feel completely burnt out and under appreciated. Don’t know if it’s due more to WFH but getting the itch it may be time to make a move. Currently in wealth management and thinking of making a move to fintech for a better work like balance.

5 years sounds like a great time to make a move. The longer one stays at the same company, the more likely they are being underpaid. We tend to make our highest salary percentage increases when switching companies. Make a change now while the job market is the way it is.

The question here is why do you feel burnt out and under appreciated. If you think it’s a common practice in the industry or you believe that you aren’t being paid your worth (aren’t we all!) then a change is the way to go. If it isn’t the aforementioned reason, then it’s best to introspect a bit before taking the decision

Dog owners: any thoughts on how to accommodate a new puppy into the consulting lifestyle (about me: I don’t travel, have a SO that works less than me to share responsibility with but they cannot WFH)

How do people work while having a puppy? I brought a puppy home two weeks ago and my performance is struggling even though I WFH.

I recently got a puppy but have avoided telling people at work out of fear they will assume I’m not really working when I’m WFH if I have a puppy. Am I being irrational?

I really want to get a puppy given WFH currently, but nervous about pulling the trigger given that we are likely returning to travel at some point in 2021. I’m single and live by myself, so worried about what the pups lifestyle would look like if I returned to travel 1-3 days a week (knowing that 3-days per week is certainly not fair to the dog). How have others thought about this? I’ve raised 4 dogs growing up, so I’m well aware of what it takes from a training / attention standpoint.

I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.

My boyfriend is on unemployment. I’m getting seriously irritated by him playing video games from noon to 4am while I WFH. He’s also being perpetually happy and I need advice on how not to kill him.

Wow…covid is really over. I live in a rural area where we knew covid was happening but it never really impacted the community or daily life. However when I’d go into the city it was very very obvious there were huge life impacts and fear. I just went into the city for the first time in about 3 months and it’s like covid never happened. It makes me wonder how many other things that have drastically changed (like wfh and hand sanitizer) will go back to normal as people go back to normal.
