I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
Any companies offering permanent wfh??
Planning a weekend getaway for my aunt’s birthday this year. She would like something local and a bit remote to allow lots of reflection/meditation. What local areas do you recommend? I’m in DC/MD.

For people who live alone, how are you staying motivated? I’ve been feeling more depressed lately and really need some advice to get through this whole wfh thing
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!

For those of you not renewing your leases/ moving out of cities, what are you doing with your furniture, etc. for the time being? How are you facilitating your move? Lease is up at the end of the month and not sure if I should renew. Would hate to spend that much $$ if I’m not living there (I’m currently WFH with my parents in a different state)
So, work from home, mindless spreadsheet work, no more meetings today. Acceptable to have a beer or two while I slog through?
Those who moved from biglaw to in-house at a large corporation, have you successfully managed to negotiate working entirely remote?
So, a new associate recently joined our team. We are still WFH. I’ve tried to be friendly with the associate but somehow not getting traction. Any suggestions? I’m the only one that initiates any kind of interaction online too. What’s the norm here? I would expect an associate to reach out more, but they only reach out to tell me to do work, which is fine too, just used to working with more social associates in the past.

Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

TRUE OR FALSE? In your workplace, raising concerns about unfair treatment, discrimination, or harassment tends to make things worse for the person raising a concern and put that person’s opportunities, role, reputation, and/or job at risk.

What is the expected salary for new hire with 1 yoe from big 4 consulting, analyst Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
