If you're unassigned you're supposed to go to the office in case someone needs you.

I seriously don't understand some of the people here. In your offices do people seriously just wander around looking for people who don't seem busy to give work? Seems like a waste of everyone's time. Reach out to HR and find available resources and schedule them, don't waste everyone's time.

Apparently you have to go to the office but I always work from home if I'm available. Just log onto same time and jump back into bed

I'm always at home . Seattle assurance.

If you're at PwC there is no rule (at least in the offices I know) that you have to be in the office. Stay at home and be available on Sametime or Google in case someone needs you.

In NYM you have to go to the office. You have to be available to help teams in need.

Head into the office

Stay home!

Started working a week after graduating last May. Was on track to be one of the top staff performers and then COVID hit. Since working from home I am one of the lowest performers. Anxiety and stress are crippling my ability to succeed. I have social anxiety which makes wfh communication extremely difficult. Managers - how much patience would you have with someone who was doing well pre-pandemic but has been struggling ever since? Should I start planning for a new job? (In case I get fired)

Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!

Does anyone have a SO who doesn’t quite get the whole remote work thing? My SO sees nice weather outside and wants to leave in the middle of the day to grill or get outside, and gets frustrated when I say I need to stay on the computer. I don’t have crazy amounts of work, but I do have a manager who needs to know the hours I work every day. Does anyone else have a partner like this? If so, what do you tell them?
