Thinking of going to a country outside the US where I can stretch my dollar and live comfortably for a month or two while still working remote. Has anyone done this? Any location recommendations?

Setting up a wfh space for myself and spouse. What are the things that work well for most people? Sit-stand desk, monitor count, size, docking station etc. Brand recommendations much appreciated!
Can’t lie doing Monday WFH massively reduces that Sunday evening pre-work anxiety. The knowledge that I can wake up at 8am, have breakfast, shower and put washing on and be at my desk 8.50am
If I’m leaving my current company for a new job and I really like the printer my current company gave me for WFH at the start of COVID, can I make them an offer to buy it from them?
Are you working in a SCIF? Are you still required to go to the work site? Are you able to do any work from home?
Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication
Those who have been asked to go back full time in office - how’s it going? Are people upset? Any chance of them reverting back to work from home?
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?
Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account? I confirmed from the HR that it is a support and development role and has only day shift. Just doubting the shift, I can't work in night shifts How is the work life balance in Wipro? Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?
How are you dealing with WFH and small children? I either need to cut my workload or completely disregard my children. I don’t want to be put in the mummy track. This virus is like the mummy trap.
What are your strategies for completing work efficiently? How do you figure out how long projects should take? A consistent piece of feedback on my yearly reviews has been that I over-bill & spend too much time on assignments. It’s something I actively work on, but I still have no concrete sense of how long I should spend on basic tasks (e.g., drafting a motion to dismiss). My firm is right to expect that I manage my time better as a mid-level associate. WFH has made my time management worse.
I interned and started my career all within the confines of quarantine. Any tips for standing out when all you’ve known is remote work?
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? 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?

Bain AC1 & AC2 total comp figures? Wondering if the lateral is worth it with 3 YOE at ACN Strat.
All else equal, what’s better for MBA story and application: M&A execution consulting or pure strategy consulting?
Has the blush come off the rose for this shining city on a hill? Have any other foreign fish in the US been asking yourself why we made the conscious decision to seek out a life in this country? The racial tensions and frequent shootings (including a much covered grocery store that I used to frequent) are outweighing the benefits of staying here. Never have I had to worry this much about going to the grocery store. The reaction of society here towards these issues is also dismal. Is it worth it?
Hi fellow PE fishes, seeking career advice. Currently in an APAC based LMM/MM PE focusing on tech and had joined the firm straight out of school. I intend on sticking to PE long term, but am curious about my career and financial trajectory in 3 cases. 1) stick to my current firm and eventually make partner 2) go for a Master’s degree and then move to an UMM/MF PE or MBB -> UMM/MF 3) Stay in the current firm and start my own fund with other Associates in the future.
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
Interviewing for a role at Deloitte Strategy & Ops Business Insights UK. Got a 4 hour long round 2 (video interview) with case study, presentation type rounds. What type of cases can I expect ?
How would PE/VC firms view somebody at a top life sciences boutique? Would you get a serious look or are they really targeting MBB consultants
Is the only way out an MBA?? I need to get out bit dont know how. ——- I think I have very transferrable skills to many job functions but I feel like the job market will see me as an IT professional forever now that I spent 3 years working in data analytics. I am done. I just don’t want to keep talking about data, ETL, automation, reports, triggers, AI, governance, security, warehouses anymore. I hate all of these words now. How to get a Strategy, Ops or PM exit from where I am at?
