Do you think post-covid that companies will ever keep their tech employees in NYC? I’m a software engineer for a financial company and already am probably one of the last people to RTO if/when that happens. But now I’m thinking that this situation has proven that they don’t need to take on the costs of having SWEs in a HCOL city if all of us can WFH/work from a LCOL city with same results. Kinda bummed bc I’m a new hire and I never even got to move there... should I lower my expectations?
The role I’m interviewing for has an opening for the same position in the city I want to move to. The problem is that the recruiter mentioned that relocation is unlikely atm because of covid. If I were to receive an offer, is there any room to negotiate relocation at a later time? How long do people normally work at an agency before switching office locations? This agency is 100% remote if that makes a difference.
Anyone recommend good insurance providers who are giving good discounts for car insurance in light of covid and work from home ?
Hi! I am in need of some art directors and art sups on my teams. Launches for rare disease states. Live anywhere because this is permanent remote. Please DM me if you’re looking for a new challenge.
Started a new remote entry level job with very minimal training. I am fresh out of school and thinking what is the best way for me to learn my role, duties, and tasks with no training and being remote. How will I succeed if in order to do the job I need to be trained.
I've been required to work from the office, but it adds 3 hours of commuting each day and I feel way more exhausted at work. Can I speak to my boss about getting a special privilege to continue to work from home?
Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
If my manager is scheduling a 6:00 check in when he’s remote, is he doing it because that’s genuinely when he’s available or because he wants to make sure the team didn’t bounce early

Squawk Box guest says we will definitely return to business travel exactly like 2019, but it’s going to “take some time.” I’m trying to decide whether I am bringing my team back to the office in full or hybrid models or staying WFH. Tell me what I should do but don’t start with “I work more at home!” Or “I’m so much more productive at home” because even if true, the data isn’t showing that TEAMS are more productive
Husband works at nonprofit. Started in August, fully remote. We are on vacation in the Caribbean this week, and I want to stay another week or two. Are the optics of my husband working from the Caribbean problematic?

Hi all! New to consulting and I received an offer from Deloitte as a consultant under F&EP within GPS. Any pros/cons to F&EP? How’s the work life balance? I assume it’s project-based but I would love to hear others’ experiences

Tax associate here who is masochistic and thoroughly enjoys writing long-form opinions, writing memos, doing legal analysis and research, but hates deal work and churning out documents. Where is the best place for me? I assume DC boutique or national Big 4 would make sense. What about sophisticated T&E, in-house, other ideas, etc.?

Big 4. Out of curiosity, say 1 put some personal expenses on the corporate card but resigned to taking another job. I know that we are personally liable for the balance already. Do we just go through our card company?
Switched to a smaller firm after being laid off from a big 4 and I miss my old job so much. Even though I like my new job for the most part, I miss the culture, the travel, and the work 😔

Does Accenture pay for cpa or offer a cpa bonus?
I'm happy in my role/salary, find it rewarding and the right work-life balance. My friends however, are talented and awesome so they've been rising up in their jobs and so, have a higher disposable income. When we go out especially on special occasions like trips/getaways, I'm starting to feel the pinch. They've been understanding and even give notice when it's a special occasion coming up where they want to splurge. If I don't go, it's fine but how do I spend time with them if everything is $$?
What’s everyone’s experience with traveling these days - how often and for what reasons? And where do you anticipate it going? I’ve left consulting but considering coming back, under the assumption that the regular 4 day travel week is basically not coming back (tho obv client / project specific and certainly will make sense sometimes). Am I nuts?
Anyone here in testing practice? I have interview coming and would like to run something by.
