IBMs new remote work policy-- do other firms institute working in the office of Fridays as well? 😓
First year attorney struggling with my mental health (& suicidal ideation). Got a job at a boutique firm right after law school in 2019 (in an area of the law I had no interest in but bills) and then the pandemic hit and I did not feel supported by the firm while WFH. My mental health declined as did my work product and I’m essentially being let go by the firm. Really struggling with thoughts of being a failure and like maybe I’m just dumb and someone mistakenly let me graduate law school.
I am getting offer from Deloitte, wanted to know does company allows remote working outside the base country? I have seen few blogs that company does international remote working,is that really happening in Deloitte?
How is work from home going, you ask?
Has anyone heard about additional increases to the crisis care? ACN increased us to 160 hours for the year but that’s not nearly enough to cover all the WFH without daycare currently...
Whats good work from home reimbursement?
WFH - Are you getting more exercise or less? I know it’s hard with gyms being closed, but with YouTubeTV, running virtual workouts there are a lot of options.
Since I started to WFH I am just not productive anymore. I did come up with some ideas that might get produced this year, but overall it takes ages to move a muscle compared to how I used to be before
Is there anyone at the manager level or above that hasn't installed work email / phone software on their phone? I've never had a reason to use my phone for work because most of my time as a senior has been during wfh. I'd like to delay the inevitable for as long as possible and curious if anyone at the higher levels has somehow managed to avoid this.
Both my husband and I have been remote since April 2020. We’re both very independent and do things alone here and there but I feel like working from home for so long has caused a bit of co-dependency. Recently, I’ve gone into the office a few times and I’ve noticed that I have a lot of anxiety about everything when I’m in the office - from work, the commute, my husband, how he’s doing, what he’s doing, etc. Has any one else dealt with this?
How often do you procrastinate on the job and how often do you get in trouble for it? Feel like I’ve gotten worse with WFH…

What’s the word that’s been communicated regarding WFH/office for EY FAAS? Are they making a push to come back to office soon?
DM for WFH job opportunities that do not have a COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Need YOE, field, type of work you want to do
What is a good way to find a mentor at my firm? There are a couple attorneys/partners I think would be open to mentoring but how can I make it happen? Is it better to choose a senior associate vs a partner? I often feel like people are so busy I hate to bother them with extraneous things. How have you been able to develop a mentor-mentee relationship? Any advice esp. during wfh times would be much appreciated!
I have received full time REMOTE Offers from PWC and Wipfli . Pros/cons and recommendations?
I heard that California had a WBS to cover Internet bills during WFH. Is there such a WBS for Colorado? Thank you!
PwC 🐠: SA going for Manager this CRT, presenting as best of a case possible. Great Snapshots on client/proposal work as well as reinvest (D&I, L&D, Recruiting). When do outcomes get communicated?
Definitely have a crush on someone at the client. Want to take her out to dinner/drinks...how do I approach this?
AE: “Client loves it, it’s perfect!” Creative: “Great we’ll finalize the files for delivery!” AE: “Well, just a few minor changes...”
Starting 10-12 month project in Denver. Client is near DTC. Is there an area nearby with good hotels that is walkable to restaurants? Or should we just suck up the commute and stay in Denver proper?
Currently on a 7 day commercial due diligence sprint. Yesterday, the day it was due, the client asked if we could change our entire deck from 4:3 to 16:9 format. This ask officially broke the other junior resource. He's now on a mental health leave of absence for the next couple of months. How is your project going?
I am going to have 5 video interviews from 2 companies all in one Friday. Any strategy to be at peak performance in all the five interviews?
Did anyone else have extremely slow response time from recruiting during your interview process? Olive
Anyone ever experience being on a project where your supervisor or lead just tells you they don’t like your work and to just fix it without providing any reasoning or how to fix it? How did you go about it? I’m so miserable and I always feel like I’m not doing good enough but I literally have no clue how to improve and I have no guidance. I have ADHD and anxiety already and this is just heightening it all and I’m paranoid I’ll get fired at any moment…
Any recommendations for the best Marriott / Bonvoy hotel in NYC? Wife and I are coming down from CT for a night to relax away from the kids for the first time in a year. Rooftop restaurant would be a plus. Thanks!
Besides FANG what other tech companies would you apply to? The actual job function isn't as important to me. I just want a change in work culture.
Laid off bc of lack of work, told I have a few weeks to find a new job BUT have been getting assigned new projects since then. Wtf do I do?
What happens if you don’t hit your billable hours? I am a first-year that had a very slow February and slow start to March. I’ve been reaching out to various teams for work but things seem slow now & I’m worried that I’m not going to hit my 1800 target.
Do media agencies hate ad verification vendors such as IAS? Does partnering with them essentially cut down on total media spend? I'm sure this is all based on pricing structure btwn agencies
As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay. Many of my peers gained valuable leadership experiences at various clubs or organizations. But I only had a year-long IB internship. Now I am in consulting and that IB experience seems to be more irrelevant. How dare I compete with the other wonderkids?
Opinions needed please. I interviewed through final rounds with company A, recruiter keeps in touch and updates regularly. I received an offer from company B and told company A about offer, company A said they would try to get a decision/update before I have to notify Company B. Here’s where I need help: after considering the offer, I plan on declining regardless. Should I tell company A (also preferred choice) that I plan on declining other offer?
Hey, would you all have any idea of comp for Amazon Business Operations Manager and/or Business Operations leader roles. The recruiters are not sharing comp data with me (weird). I haven't ran across this before. I have 6 yoe . Any insights will help
