Pretty sure most people posting here are either on the John or WFH during the normal business hours.
How hard is it to lateral to BigLaw from a mid size if I didn’t go to a T14? In the Sac area and looking to lateral to the Bay/Silicon Valley and do either full remote or hybrid
it’s four years into work from home.. …. your boss still doesn’t wear headphones or mute themselves on calls … . … you’re trying to present your work….. another day, another battle with what you said two seconds ago
I hate the city I live in but I love my agency. Since we’ve been wfh for months (and it looks like the rest of the year) I want to ask if I can continue to work remote so I can move somewhere I’m happy. Thoughts on how to approach management?
Is West Coast consulting life during WFH the worst possible scenario right now, especially if you have a crappy team? I have clients/3rd party vendors/fellow team members in all time zones in the US + Western & Eastern Europe. My email starts blowing up by 3am, and we have senior managers on our team in the East coast that work until 2AM EST. The only way this could be worse is if I lived in Hawaii LOL "It's about points scored, not minutes played"
Groundhog Day - WFH edition
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.
I've found that wfh makes it so I never know when I'm hungry anymore. I wake up right before work, I'm in one spot most of the day, then when I clock out and start moving around more, I'm starving.

Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
......this WFH/no travel lifestyle is going to last much longer than a few months isn’t it.....
Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
Got the blood test, I have the antibodies. My company is WFH through next year. I hate WFH. I am considering renting a WeWork spot, simply to go through the actions of going to work and coming home from work. Is this a crazy idea?
Any tech recruiters in here? My wife has just completed her MS in Cybersecurity and has been working in UHC for 10 years, currently a research analyst. She has been literally carrying every department she has been promoted to with the highest reviews. She’s yet to break the ceiling even with a BA in Healthcare Admin.. So, she is hoping to find an opportunity that merges Cybersecurity and healthcare. What opportunities do you guys have either remote or in middle Georgia?
What’s the weirdest (SFW) thing huge done while on a WFH conference call so far? I just cut my toenails while listening to a client talk for 30 minutes.

Want to improve my verbal and written communication skills. I hear reading more would help but I don’t read as much as I used to. So I’m wondering what books would help with that? Should I just read books that tickle my fancy like suspense and true crime novels? Help! Welcome to all book recommendations!

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
