I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
Have you all started shopping for regular office clothes again? Or have you always been wearing office clothes for wfh for the past year?
Recently got told by my doctor that I will need weekly appointments Mondays at 3pm, which directly conflicts with traveling to client site. How does one even bring this up to a project manager?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Companies trying to force people back to office = record company execs thinking you can get people to buy whole CDs in an era of streaming individual songs. Times have changed. Deal with the reality.
I commenced international remote working to be closer to my friends and family, but now as my team's office is about to reopen, I'm missing the idea of commuting and the sense of community in being part of the 9am rush hour. Are there any other easy ways of building a sense of community? Cheers!
Amazing leaders, I have been facing some resistance from our offshore offices and need some guidance. Context, I am an Indian and been working in US and Basel for many years now. My offshore office in India is all men (similar to my US and Singapore office), however the moment they realize I am Indian, their attitude towards me changes drastically. For example, the team leader in India office (also 10 years older to me) in a global conference call said that the project needs more experience cont
I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?

All right, which one of you created this checklist / flowchart for my client to put in every restroom stall?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.

One more day of client and partner meetings then off to NOLA for a stag weekend. I predict a hazy and expensive 4 days ahead of me.
Anyone have thoughts on how the corona virus will also affect how (or if) agencies will be hiring?
What kind of questions can I ask while interviewing for a quant HF/prop trading firm? I have the technical bases covered, but very little information publicly available.
Your task is to blow a job interview in the first 30 seconds. What do you do? “How strict is the sexual harassment policy?”
Hello moms - I am 35wk 5 days and feel like the baby has dropped. How many weeks before delivery does the baby drop per your experience?
Within the Private Equity consulting market, how do MBB stack against each other? I assume that Bain has been the leader thanks to PEG. But have McKinsey and BCG been catching up? And if I prefer to work on projects with low/no travel, would the Private Equity practice be a good place to build my career within MBB?

Any more word on the PwC Forensics layoffs? It appears to be going on in multiple markets.
Should you leave a somewhat stable (not so much with Covid and layoff talks) job for an ~8% pay increase at another agency rightnow? Who knows what the other place could be as well.
Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals. The question I have is: assuming I get an offer and the details work out, how do I navigate leaving? Should I provide notice right away? Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
I think the problem with consultants is you are overpaid from the very start because you generate revenue, even with zero skills and are willing to travel. Over time that evolves to arrogance because you think you know more than your clients when the reality is your sample set is quite small. I have spent equal time on both sides and would counsel you to be careful in a remote post COVID world because we are all realizing we have more employee capacity than we thought.
Currently at 4 YOE at Deloitte, have BS & MS in engineering, and software development with cyber professional experience. Was invited to interview for a cyber analyst role at McKinsey & Company, but unclear if this is a true step down given that I am an SC right now. Any insight is appreciated!
