Pet peeves: I'm now officially not responding to any Teams/Slack messages with anyone who only ask how I am/"happy <insert day>" and waiting for my response without also getting to what they want. Just get to the ask. The exception is the coworkers who I actually know ask randomly without needing anything. 🙃
Why would you communicate concisely,
when you can
as many messages
as you gather your thoughts
so others have to hear that ping
over and over again.
Microsoft is stealing from everyone. Teams <> Slack, Planner <> Trello, Yammer <> Facebook
As a project manager, WFH has me in a prison of chat and email all day, so the tools now matter a lot more than they used to. What agencies (or in-house even) DON’T use Microsoft Teams/Outlook? (Ie, Google or Slack, or something else?)
What are some things you need a break from? I’ll go first: the teams/slack notification sound. Shoot me.
How do you keep politics/current events out of your teams and organizations/culture during these hyper tribal and partisan times? Of course I’ve said the standard “no discussion of religion/politics. no matter what your stance/viewpoint is.” That doesn’t seem to work though.
People still post memes in Slack. People still make underhanded political comments in meetings. Etc etc. I rolled a manager off of the project in a very public way as an example, but that only temporarily improved behavior.
The person you report to sends you “Hey can you chat real quick?” via Slack/Teams. How do you feel?
You get a slack/teams message, you’re not too busy, and you see the message.
A. Respond right away.
B. Wait a little while so that it doesn’t seem like I have nothing better to so.
teams or slack and why
Currently at my work, we’re going through a lot of process changes within the marketing and design teams. Marketing keeps updating ways of renaming and output but no one is having a meeting with the design team who ultimately has to follow these new steps to deliver our final designs to them for review. Is this typical? I feel like they don’t think it’s necessary to fill us in and just send us a last minute slack or sometimes only lets us know because we slack them asking them directly..advice?
Anyone loving or hating MS Sharepoint for creative teams? My Dept currently relies heavily on Airtable, Slack, and email, but that seems to leave some big gaps. I've tried Notion, Clickup, and Basecamp, and they all seem to have their flaws.
Dows anyone have management that requires you to have Teams or Slack on your personal phone as part of the work from home benefit?
Microsoft why are you damn obsessed with making so much of your software “start on startup” by default?
It’s so annoying and Microsoft teams is the LeAST efficient chatting app out there so it’s awful on resources. Slack is SO much faster and doesn’t start on startup (I don’t think ?)…
you’re really quite something to blatantly copy the competition, make your product more sluggish, and then add in your nasty ass dark patterns. Microsoft teams = bloatware 90% of the time. Stop prioritizing it
Any Slack SEs here? I’m in conversation with a Slack recruiter for an SE role. Curious how competitive the market is with Microsoft basically offering MS Teams for free and the pandemic starting to wind down. I see most cool startups have Slack and bigger enterprises have been getting swooped up by MS Teams because of cheaper pricing and not needing to buy Zoom. I personally like Slack more but how are current market conditions and how are y’all feeling? Slack Salesforce
Fellow Consultants slack or Teams?
Anyone else struggling with how to message / interpret messages from people on Teams / Slack? I don’t know if I seem rude not putting !s / if I seem too hype putting emojiis and !s ….sometimes I think people are not happy with me because they dont reciprocate the same level of energy…how do I go about this?
Is it petty to force someone to leave a Teams/Slack after they switch accounts? Nothing proprietary is shared, it’s mostly used for knowledge sharing
We have some Singaporean colleagues, and their chat in our Slack has been... less than PC. Is there a way to ask international teams to follow Western standards of politeness regarding questions such as race?
Got to know from my IT friend that few firms esp big 4 and IT consulting they have some spy software which shows that how long screen was stuck on one page of an employee. Is it TRUE?
Also any tricks how to play with MS teams to stop showing away? Like jabber and slack use to have feature of showing away after 45 mins etc , is there any feature for MS Teams?
IT people please confirm on that screen monitoring details thing
MS TEAMS sucks!! It’s like that chugalkhor monitor of class! Telling how long person was away and all.
Jabber/ Slack time was best atleast I could manually adjust it to “show me away after 30mins” unlike this MS TEAMS!
Consulting walo invention karo but esa bhi nai ki kisi ki khushiya le lo 🤣
Who here has been following the Teams / Slack chats at their client(s) this #log4j #log4shell weekend?
1. Are you pleasantly surprised how efficient and coordinated the various teams at each client have been with staying on top of it and handling it like pros?
2. Have you offered to help?
Let's settle this once and for all. Teams or Slack. Support your answer, especially if you've used both extensively.
Hey CDs, do you find it stressful to have creative teams that just don’t bring it. I have a couple that consistently table interesting and well crafted ideas and a couple that don’t and I feel I need to take up the slack. Management don’t want to let them go because of the current tightening of the labor market. I feel like these teams have me over a barrel and there’s very little I can do about it.
When should my wife tell her boss about her pregnancy? Before covid it was until we couldn’t hide it anymore, but now we could hide it from zoom all the way til she’s due. It’s our first child and didn’t want to put her in a place of being discriminated against. She works at a smaller 60 person company.

What is in general policy for work from home?
While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!

Has anyone tried leaving for a remote job?
I love travelling and just want to be able to work from wherever for a year or two.
- astounding financial benefits, great healthcare
- too many cultists
- closed culture with extremely compartmentalized information, working on a small piece of the puzzle, with reduced ability to demonstrate true value, unless already high up.
- collaboration across teams is made unusually difficult and doesn’t seem encouraged.
- not remote friendly -- making everyone go back

Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
I realized tuition reimbursement is the biggest Catch-22. We get 10k per year given the work hours and travel, it's nearly impossible to complete a part time masters degree

So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?
