About to give my notice... company is having alternate week (wfh/office) arrangement. is it more appropriate to wait for a f2f convo or do it on zoom? (as an introvert doing it virtually feels more comfortable... but what do u think?) 🤨
I recently left a pretty good summer internship to take a full time job and I regret it. I have been losing sleep over it all summer. And after remote work ends, the job would be in a high cost of living city as well. Due to this, I am looking at switching jobs again. I feel terrible about starting my career as a job hopper. Despite getting interviews at good companies, nothing is making me feel better about this situation. I don’t know how to handle the thoughts racing in my mind.
Not sure how much longer I can stay cooped up in my house. Been one of the people abiding by social distancing / quarantine, and with the spike (due to more testing, people not social distancing, whatever) its scary to think that we could still be doing this next year. Anybody else in the same boat? How are you dealing with the repetitiveness of WFH?
How do y’all stay motivated during this time? (Still full time WFH, usually a high performer but I’m exhausted) 🆘
What do you do when you are unassigned for a week. I love 45 min away from the office (without traffic)? Can I just work from home?

Just started as an associate in ibanking, can someone please provide the unspoken rules of ibanking? Wasn’t fortunate enough to join with rest of the new hires over orientation this summer and working remote has not helped with being able to normally reach out to another guy by the cube and ask for advice especially since I’m the new guy. Thanks in advance!!!
If they decide to go back to "remote" or "hybrid" model this school year, I am legit gonna loose it!
Hear me out because this is somewhat work related. i think I’m a porn addict. This probably has been going since I was a teen but now that we are wfh this actually affecting me at work. Did anyone experienced the same thing? How did you cooe?

I am seeing a lot of remote roles by Facebook did anyone have any luck in landing them? Did you guys approach a recruiter or just apply online? The last time I interviewed with Facebook they ghosted me after I said I needed H1b transfer. Does anyone know their policy now? I’m planning to apply for data science/data engineering / product roles if that helps. Thanks in advance!

Hasn’t been discussed in a while, but for those who are higher up the chain or heard things, what are your groups thinking as far as return to office vs WFH?
First week WFH in a long time. Kids are home so thought I’d go to the office for minimal distractions...nope: (cont.)
I don't know why this is the case and maybe it's just my agency but it seems like the people who are most eager to send out "internal trend email digests" be it cultural trends, social media changes, creative inspiration or whatever always seem to be people who are grossly failing in the primary role they were hired for.
Does Amex platinum reimburse for CLEAR?
Am I crazy for postponing a trip I was going to take to NYC next weekend due to coronavirus? Not worried about the illness itself, just don’t wanna get caught up in some quarantine or something
Has anyone applied for McKinsey analyst/senior analyst position for analytics and have any advice? Especially for the “case interview with an analytics twist” part? Thanks!!
Anyone know how to get the underlying dataset for the Bing Coronavirus tracker? Or a similar data set?
I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.
All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed. There is discoloring, made of steel, the insides don’t have rolex engraved etc etc. However the sentimental value prevailed and all the insights you gave me is a huge lesson for me in checking fakes vs originals. So thank you all!
I am currently working as a credit risk modeler. I am trying for a techno-functional role in Bajaj Finserv in risk management. Is it better than the analytics role, how is the growth? Yoe: 7 yrs
Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?
If I try to switch groups, interview and not get it the role. Can I still apply to other openings for the same company?
I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
Any mom's here who remember their first trimester? Anything you stopped doing, eating or drinking? Obviously the basics like alcohol, smoking, caffeine, raw seafood, flaxseed, rosemary, etc. Family is very cautious is driving me insane. Between covid restrictions and baby restrictions, I feel like I'm in jail. Suburban cycling ban and all-bran are the latest drama.
What happens if you miss Jury Duty due to client commitments? Any advice on how to get out of it is greatly appreciated!
Someone last week asked about the authenticity of Diversity initiatives at work. Interesting piece from NY Times http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/17/public-editor/new-york-times-diversity-liz-spayd-public-editor.html?referer=https://t.co/7Xo5N2j97t
Looking to do a 4 or 5 day trip from San Fran to LA on the PCH. I would love some recommendations on itinerary, activities, places to stay, and food!
Got an offer to move to another B4 strategy practice with a title & pay bump (15%). However, most of the work is in an industry I hated working in (financial services). Is it worth making the jump for a year if the ultimate goal is FAANG?
Is it fine to decline a virtual holiday party that goes from 5:30 - 7:00 PM? I like my team but I also don’t feel like staring at a screen for another 1.5 hours longer than I have to.
So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe
