How did Microsoft eff up so hard in March 2020 and let Zoom completely erase Skype from existence?
Going to office for last 2 weeks. I was eagerly waiting to meet my teammates and build connections with other guys but sadly in Bangalore hardly 10% are coming up. Unnecessarily counting the rents while the work that is being done in the office is same as the one I did from home.. that same zoom and skype calls. Thinking of going back to my hometown in Lucknow for a month and then coming back to base location again. Only thing is the below cafeteria and an amazing weather holding me back here.
Why we use 3 different applications(skype,zoom,teams) for chat and calls?
It's wastage of money for the firm.
I personally feel MS Teams is best and can be one stop solution.
Reason: a) all chat history, b) good connectivity, c) compact and user friendly UI etc.
In my previous Organization, I had taken a couple of interviews. Unlike zoom links at D during pandemic, those interview were mobile calls without the video. The candidates were specifically from Bangalore and Hyderabad cause the requirement was location specific. Once the pandemic is over, the person would work out of client location. I noticed, the candidates giving great answers on telephonic, but when it would be a client zoom/Skype call, the candidates would go mum. Anyone noticed that?

Need MBA general behavioral interview buddy. Immediate deadlines are Yale and Kellogg video essays but I'm applying to many others too! Can do Zoom or Skype. Happy to share my question list if you'd prep together! Thanks all.
Different ways of saying “Let me schedule a Zoom/WebEx/Teams/Skype …. ”
Workshop (come on)
Am I missing any synonyms? 😅
Are there any advantages of interviewing over Skype/zoom for MBB vs in-person? Just for example - Case interviews typically use frameworks, what if you have the print outs in front of you...lol?
Any suggestions on wireless headphones, preferably with a mute button to take Skype/teams/Zoom calls .
I am done!
Done with fake smile on skype/zoom calls
Done with fake affirmations that I am okay
Done with not able to say no
Done with being said anything and everything
Done with micromanagement
Done with pressure/deadlines
Done with rant about quality
Done with the feeling that I am obliged
Done with being underpaid
Done with overworking
Done with the rant of WLB and that going haywire
I am done!!
My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
Weird idea. Is there a way we could set up like a virtual work room? Like one where we're logged onto something like skype/messenger/Google meet/zoom/ZooRoom/Discord or something where we can all be working at night time, but at least not alone. It would mostly be silent, but misery loves company? I legit hate working alone for the whole day and then into the evening too.
I am nearing the end of my employment and will be officially laid off . Unfortunately I bought a new laptop since my old one is ancient. I expect to be doing virtual interviews and want to make sure I have the right equipment. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what type of software or equipment that would be best? We used Skype for business at my firm, but have no experience with Zoom. Is one favored? Your kind advice would be much appreciated!
I have Zoom job interview (not an in person) with a large multinational consultancy (but not MBB/Big 4) for a mid level role. Previous Skype interviews with them have been biz casual dress but this interview is with much higher ups and for a case study. BizCasual again or suit up? Suit seems over the top since they know I’ll be home.
With interviews mostly over the phone/Skype/zoom, is everyone still sending thank you emails? I’m working with a recruiter so I don’t always have the email contacts for the people on my interview.
Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?
Saddest part of people quitting before was seeing their name/email disappear from Outlook/Skype/Zoom/etc.. guess I’ll be seeing a lot more of that in the coming weeks 😢
Since we are in the business of branding and marketing, what happened to Skype? They did a lot of award-winning work around the world. But during this pandemic everyone immediately went to zoom, who has never done noticeable marketing. Does anyone know how or why?￼ Tell me before my account people explain how award winning wrk doesn’t work again.￼
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
How have you approached being on camera during the extended WFH routine? Some people are ALWAYS on camera while others just dial into calls that they would normally be on Teams/Zoom/Skype/WebEx for. I go on camera from time to time, but not for every single call.
I’d be interested in learning everyone’s “guiding principles”.
How many different video conferencing apps do you have ? Zoom, Skype, ring central, google meet, Microsoft teams, slack, gotomeeting, Amazon chime is what I have so far. I don’t want any more 😩
When doing a Zoom/Skype/Webex or whatever tool you use for video conferences these days, do you ever wonder what kind of pants the participants are wearing? 🤣
Point to ponder - Using the same resources (Skype,zoom, meetings, calls etc.) that were always available to us, why didn’t we work from home all along and wasted so much time commuting/flying?🤔
Has anyone seen any good examples of brands (or TV or news shows) doing Zoom/Skype interviews well, with decent production value? Thanks in advance.
So sorry if this has been asked but, are we allowed to use zoom/teams meetings/Skype for calls with friends outside the company?
Skype/Zoom Meeting Bingo
Anyone else zoom conferences and Skype conferences dial in not working? Overload from WFH?
I’m intrigued by the rapid increase of people using zoom/Skype video on their calls - it feels like a trend in last 3 months . What’s people’s thoughts on this. Do you love it or hate it?
Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Skype?
Anyone using video conferencing like gotomeeting / Skype / zoom to sell life insurance or DI? What are you showing them or just video?
Does everyone have a rule on what time they log off or shut off Skype/Zoom? What boundaries do you set for how late you’ll stay up?

Started out hating Zoom depos. Kind of like them now. In hour two of a co-defendant’s examination, which is entirely irrelevant to my client, and I’ve clipped my nails, stretched fully, planned a hike for the weekend, ordered my home goods off Amazon, and it’s all billable time because I’m stuck on this thing.
Is it justifiable to ask for a raise after 7-months? Especially if you’re the only designer on some of their biggest clients, carrying slack from seniors + producing quality work in no time?

Currently work as an Ops Manager for Amazon and interviewing for a few roles - internally as project manager non-tech and externally as Management Consultant at a top firm. I genuinely do think I'd find the work as MC engaging, less certain about the PM one.
Debating if it's worth while to take the consulting gig if end objective (5 year plan) is a remote job that I find engaging.
Would appreciate thoughts from people in similar situations and how you navigated it.
Dollar Generals and the like are plagues on small towns and their businesses. It pains me to see the parking lots full in the back country. No healthy food, and I’ve been told that the locals in the place where I’m WFH always spend their whole paychecks there, especially on terrible food

Husband and I decided to start trying for a second. We have a 1.5 year old now. I’m the bread winner (attorney making $200k+) now but husband has a very lucrative offer for next year (residency to doctor, for context) we are planning to accept. I will ask to go fully remote with a couple of in office days a month if necessary (we will be like 3 hours away with the move from my current job). But my job is a big unknown right now Super high anxiety about all the unknowns. Help
