Starting to feel some separation anxiety/guilt as we are starting up daycare again next week for my 2yo. It was fine for him to go before and while I actually went to work but now my husband and I are perm. WFH. As much as I loved the chaos and having him around the last 3 months, it’s not forever sustainable. But now I feel guilty for working and not trying to make it work with all of us at home. Just venting as I am sad that this is time is ending.
Pay cut: Google employees who work from home could lose money | Reuters https://www.reuters.com/world/the-great-reboot/pay-cut-google-employees-who-work-home-could-lose-money-2021-08-10/
Really want to stay WFH for longer, it’s really worked out well for me. Any ideas what companies could be WFH long term ?
Looking for some part time remote volunteer work; anyone got any ideas/leads on where to look?
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
Hey Accenture peeps, how's the wfh policy there before and after covid? When do you expect back to office? And can u get wfh even after work starts normal from office?
Mid size product company or start up. Which is a better choice for salesforce Admin? And what is the average pay for salesforce admin and BA? location is remote.
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?
Can someone explain the hybrid model? I realize things could change but what does the hybrid method look like for an average month between wfh/office/client?
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?
Partial Work From Home 👌👌
Just got staffed on two projects where i am billing 60 hours for the next 6 weeks. Will i die? What would you do in re: time management to make my days more effective? 20 hours of the 60 is remote...
If your firm has implemented a remote policy in light of COVID-19, please state it including city and whether it’s a mandatory policy or permissive.
Guy I was seeing dumped me when I tried to have the what are we doing convo, saying we are very different - mainly, I care too much about my career. I decided I hate these working hours and will quit consulting by end of the year. My job is all I had esp with covid killing all my hobbies. Going back to therapy next week bc life really sucks now....
How do you all handle landlord insurance / what coverages do you recommend? I’ve found it really confusing understanding which policies I need to have and whether or not I need to check if my tenants have renters insurance. Thanks for any tips/advice!
Is anyone here hiring university or campus recruiters? My sister has experience as an associate director of alumni outreach at a university and is trying to break into recruiting. Any leads are appreciated. Thanks!
Curious to hear thoughts. How many rounds of interviews do you consider acceptable/helpful for a new role? And would you refuse an interview if it went beyond a certain number?
Hi All, Recently I am fine with my 2 technical rounds in HCL. Today I got mail from HR to send all the documents. However I didn't not had any discussion with HR regarding salary.
I work at home for most of my projects. Problem is these dumb kids in my neighborhood keep ding dong ditching me to the point I don’t even open my door. But they still do it! How do I take revenge?
Looking for advice. I am new to the firm and on my second engagement. The manager that I am working with is the most negative person that I've ever met; he constantly complains about the firm, the project, clients etc and never appreciates any efforts. I realized I spent so much internal energy to elevate the mood (it's only 2 of us in this engagement) and this started taking a toll on me. I am also worried that he will give a negative feedback on me as this is his behavioural pattern.
Any big law partners willing to give a glimpse at what your compensation structure is like and what your take home actually is? Associate comp is so transparent yet partner comp at my firm is extremely tight lipped. Eligible for partner soon and I have no idea what to even expect compensation wise, buy in, etc
Is there a clause I can include in the lease to prepare for a tenant that stops paying and tries to claim I can’t evict them due to covid? Not saying I’m expecting it, but a cousin had a bad experience recently and I don’t want to repeat the mistake
Hi Fishes, Need help! I am 30, Indian, edu:engineering + analytics PGP, working in pharma consulting firm as analytics consultant. I feel like I want/should do an MBA from either of M10/M15.

Moved into a doorman building for the first time on a covid discount. I didn't realize how well off all the other tenants would be, its a bit unnerving.
Consultants interviewing for an industry role.
How many points for a fire alarm causing everyone to evacuate the building for an hour at 1am?
After reading through a lot of these bowls, while considering to pivot to consulting for the first time, I see a lot of negative aspects about the field. Is it really all that terrible? Is a 40 hour work week not a reality in consulting? Is there specific bad and good experiences people can share so that I may make an informed decision before pivoting careers?
Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.
Seeking (remote) Communications/Social Media Manager role. I've been in the same role for more than 5 years. Despite getting Masters in Strategic Communication last December & putting to good use, there's no promotion in sight. I'm seeking remote because I just bought a house & can't switch cities atm.
