What video meeting software does your firm use? Do you like it? Zoom, Teams, G Meet, Webex, etc
I feel leading meetings virtually - zoom/Webex has been more difficult then in person. I also don’t think I am doing a great job leading them because there is awk silence sometimes. How to know if I am not doing a great job and how to improve?
What is a great way to make mentors during r WFH period? I’m a new college hire and would like to network and form mentorships in the age of zoom/webex
If you’ve interviewed via Zoom/WebEx/Teams etc. recently, did you use your personal computer or work computer? My personal laptop is old and the camera is nowhere near the quality of my work laptop. Is it crazy to use my work laptop? Side note - the interview is via Microsoft Teams, which we use in my office for internal communications. I’m comfortable with the using the platform, but have no idea how meeting info is stored.
Welp. Had an interview scheduled for this morning for 30 mins. I join the webex & nothing. I email the recruiter after 15 mins and get a response saying the interviewer had something come up and would like to reschedule. Is it dramatic of me to be bothered by the fact they didn’t even apologize? Meanwhile, I have another interview for a different company Monday & the recruiter reached out today asking if I had any questions or do a zoom test run.
Does your company provide enterprise zoom licenses? I’m shocked at the number of firms I’ve seen that do not. Microsoft Teams and WebEx are pretty poor substitutes
Quarantine emotional-outreach update: at the end of most zoom/teams/webex calls— when Ive been seeing peoples faces and smiling and having a nice enough time—I have to fight the urge to say “I miss you” or even “I love you” as Im signing off. (Not clients, just work people, but that’s bad enough)
I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.
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”.

Favorite Webex/Zoom fail?
Is everyone always on a video call at Google? Many other companies have communication around zoom/video call fatigue, but wondering if that culture has dipped into Google's at all?
I recently started a new job and it in no way is panning out as it was made out to seem when I started and there are lots of red flags I’m just tolerating right now… for example, even pto and remote work is not as discussed from the onset. Is it too soon to start looking for something new? How does one go about explaining why you’d leave so soon to a potential new employer?
Thinking about getting a second monitor and know nothing about electronics 🤷🏽♀️. Any specific things to consider when selecting one?
Might be moving to Spain and would need to look for a role I could do if I wouldn’t be able to go remote for my employer. We don’t have an office presence in Spain so I suspect I might be looking for a role with a company with an actual presence in the country. 1) what companies would folks recommend I look at? Tend to prefer SaaS B2B/B2C and avoid consumer adtech (FB) 2) what pay should I be willing to accept? I know pay is lower in Spain, but so is cost of living.
I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
Best ergonomic & economic chair?
Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote). Currently an associate making cravath comp in a large city (not new DPW scale yet) but have been trying to move to a different market to be closer to family. New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?

Looking for a new office chair at home. Any suggestions? Two key qualities: comfortable and adjustable Price is very flexible. Much rather pay more for a nicer chair than get a deal. Thanks!
My younger sibling (non-binary) graduated in spring of 2020 and has been living at home with our parents working part time with a social media gig. Before the pandemic they were also working in the service industry. They don’t drive and really struggle with remote work to the point that getting a full time remote job feels terrible for them. I know my parents have been getting more direct about telling them to get a full time job, which is obviously stressful and they don’t feel employable
Has anyone heard when our govt clients will have their offices fully open and expect people back in-person? I know some are opened at limited capacity (personally, I’m in full support of working remote where possible) but just curious.
My 2011 MacBook Pro is getting too hot for Zoom meetings. Deciding on getting the latest MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. Which would be the better investment? I also occasionally use InDesign/Photoshop/Audacity. But mostly Google Docs/Sheets. Can the Air handle those efficiently and simultaneously?
Friday Funnies! 🤣 Starting a new FB tradition to spread a bit of cheer after a year of WFH. Share a funny, happy, or uplifting story that happened this week. Can be work, family, TV, memes, anything that made you chuckle. Follow the format of: "I laughed this week because...."
Any tips on reducing/hiding cords in your home office? As you can see current set up the cords are bugging me. Fiancé loves the desk in the middle of the room.
High back office chair recommendations <$500?
It makes me really sad to see so many young people still going out and partying. In a couple of weeks it’ll be the elderly, sick, and healthcare people who will have to carry the burden.
Anyone else getting pressure to always be on camera for all zoom meetings? I get some of the time but I don’t think it’s necessary for all. Any thoughts? Maybe you have a reasoning I don’t know about

I want to save money for future (to use it for anything specially for my kids education. But also need to have the option to use the money for other things if required) I don't like th 529 plan as it specifically limits to use only for education. For this purpose I've set up a Roth 401K this year and contributing to the maximum amount (about 6k) Which I believe I can use it for Kids education? and if I would need to use it for any thing else as well I'm free to use? Are there any other options?

Which is the best place/companies where you make good money with not a super tech background or aspiration and have a decent WLB? I know IB folks make great money but have no life. Majority of the MBB folks also make good money but a standard week of probably 65-70 works. Does industry pay that well? Currently making 125k at a Big4 with 3 yoe. Looking for something in the range of 140-145 with a 40 hour/week lifestyle.
Was told I am on track for senior in 2 cycles with high performance. Will have 5YOE then. Is this progression in line? Moved to industry after promotion from analyst so not sure how tech industry timelines go
Failed MBB case interview so hard the guy started giving me casing tips mid interview. Practiced about 20 cases. Friend’s sister is a music major and got an offer with 0 case studying, said cases were just common sense and logic. When did you realise you just weren’t smart?
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
