Why do new grads use froge emoji on slack? Scared to ask lol but I’ve seen an SWE and an APM use it.
I am sure this has been asked before but are there any good therapists that you can see remotely? (I.e Skype, FaceTime, etc.)? Currently traveling Monday through Friday so makes it hard to see one
Let’s bloodbath begin Microsoft Teams vs Cisco Webex vs BlueJeans. What do you prefer to use and why?
If I get one more Zoom message that says "I'm trying to Teams you" I swear to all that is holy I will set fire to my laptop and yeet this brick to Bosnia. That's like FaceTiming me and asking me to log into skype. Should I be on the lookout for an email that your carrier pigeon is on its way with an urgent message?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
5wks pregnant and wondering — when did people tell their teams they were pregnant? I’m mindful that we’re “always on” during COVID, and I’m thinking about dr appts and what to do if/when morning sickness shows up, since I’m on zoom ~6hrs/day... but it’s also so painfully early. Would love to hear how other moms have handled! Did this allow you to create better boundaries for things like protecting your sleep and stress?
Since this is an open forum where we can be honest, I've assembled a list of billable litigation tasks that can be done from a playground: Conference calls, File review, Fly on the wall depositions where your camera is off, Zoom cattle call status hearings. Any other suggestions?
Perhaps the correct response to fatigue over endless video meetings would be to rethink meetings and schedule fewer with only needed attendees? Meetings were broken pre-pandemic. Zoom is just putting a face on the problem. We don’t need more phone calls.
I hate Slack. I can’t get sh*t done because it’s like being in an all-day meeting responding to people. My real day starts about 5:30p when Slack finally calms down.
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.
If someone on an anonymous forum asked for a zoom meeting to give career advice, and move 30 minutes out at last minute and don’t show up after 5 mins, do I even want to reply to their reschedule attempt?
Anyone else experiencing mic picking up low/ no voice though the mic is unmute, suddenly during a call on Zoom?
Would you guys be interested in doing a virtual group activity like virtual happy hour or movie watching tomorrow? (Sunday)
Prepping for my first Zoom call of the day...
Has anyone had any in person interviews? Has it all been zoom? I assume wearing masks sitting 6 ft a part is not effective.
Makeup for Zoom: I bought a new Razer webcam which seemed to white me out in the evening even w blush. I was shocked when I used it during the day yesterday. My lack of eye makeup and my need for a dye job was readily apparent. What have others found?
What are techniques for giving a good presentation via zoom? Want to avoid seeming like I’m reading talking points but also would like to have a way to ensure I’m hitting all the key points
Any suggestion for earbuds with noise cancellation? Which will b appropriate for zoom calls.budget 7.5-8K
How great would office emojis be in this app?

Listening to accountants present on GAAP rule changes and now I know how Beethoven would feel if he had to listen to a David Guetta track.

Is it true that EY is saving on travel costs by parking motor homes outside client sites? Genius!
NYC's hottest club for consultants is DELIVERABLE. This place has everything: ripped up SOW confetti on the dance floor, crying first year analysts who just received a 3. And bathroom status upgrades
Friday is a day that we use to make up for all the bullshit and games we have to play during the week. #earnedit
So grossed out by nasty old man (triple my age) at the client site. He came over to where I sit to discuss an issue and his hand "accidentally" falls on my lap! I just got up and walked away
My laptop bag fell off my citiBike and got run over by a bus.... Fffffffuuuuuucccccckkkkkkk!
Are there any risks to send out your resume to recruiters/head hunters who request them?
