Any thoughts on praying in the office? I’m in the London office and because of some confident bothers, we were able to use conference rooms to pray. Now in my new firm, I’m the only Muslim and so when I do go in, find it hard to find a place. I don’t want to announce it and make a big deal, just want to pray quietly, otherwise I’d have to save my salah for home. WFH has changed this in such a good way but wanted to see if anyone has similar experience or tips?
Is audit more fun when we get back to the client site as a team? My whole time at EY has been in audit 100% remote and I am so isolated and board and not being trained well.
Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?
Need a freelance Sr. Copywriter 8/6-8/20 to work on social - social ads, static feeds, carousels for a mattress brand. Do you have a bunch of social, are you available and nice? Fully remote. Reach out to me :)
I keep seeing those LinkedIn polls about how many people want to work from home permanently, and it makes me kinda sad. I know a lot of people really prefer working from home, but as a junior who only started working after the pandemic began, it feels so strange to not have an agency to go to. I know all my coworkers faces only from seeing them on Zoom, and only in the context of work-related conversations. I hope I’ll actually get the chance to experience normal agency culture.
Anyone else experiencing strain in your relationships being at home all day with your significant other? I usually did well separating work things stress, priorities etc… when I was traveling. Literally able to leave it behind at the office and take my commute home either flying or otherwise as my time to myself to decompress so ready to take on family life when I got home. But with WFH I find myself struggling with this as stress is bleeding in with how I interact at home.

What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.

I currently work in a HCOL (LA) and have decided that this summer I want to move to a MCOL (Chicago) that isn't an office location for my team. Am I right to wait until after YE comp discussions (end of Q1) before raising this with my company? We don't have published comp bands and I know there is some pay disparity between the two locations. I want to make sure I am getting what I deserve bonus/raise and then negotiate any pay difference after
