Remember turn off your camera if you attend a zoom meeting without pants. You never know when you are going to need to stand up.

Schedule as many 1:1s with people as you can. Found it was easier to remember who did what vs. mass introductions/group meetings.

But also remember to put on pants and leave your camera on, at least for the first weeks.

Just be a normal person. I’ve seen quite a few new remote people come in guns ablaze and trying to overcompensate for not having face time. It’s ok to be chill and watch for a bit

Haha, luckily everyone will still be entirely remote when I start which should help. We just hired someone on my old team that is like this so a good reminder

The first day is weird. Then the first week is weird. Then it gets better. It's everything you normally go through when entering a new environment, except you go through it in a home environment you know very well and are comfortable in. Hard to explain, but you'll see what I mean.

Give yourself time to make friends. It’s the hardest thing. You’ll find your people.

Bond over the fact that you like to walk around half naked in you home

Just be yourself. Listen. Contribute when needed. Ask pertinent questions, or ask them off Zoom to those that can answer. Relax, you got this.

Ask for someone to walk you through your company’s org chart describing how each dept interacts with each other. Schedule 1:1s with people you’ll likely have to interact with.

Starting a gig soon that I'm really happy about. This is my second job in a CD position and I'm coming into an existing team as opposed to building one like I have at my previous job. These guys have never had a CD before so this is new to them, and the CMO has mentioned they're great and driven, but require direction. Do you have any tips / watchouts / advice for how to come in to a team like this and start off on the right foot?

Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit. The bench when you really want to be out on a project but cant for som reason. What is you take? Are they just two words for the same thing

My firm recently merged with another firm, and it is starting to feel distinctly more “corporate.” All of their decisions are metric-driven now—billables, realization rates, client and matter origination, business development hours. I’m missing the community feeling of the old firm, when I was more than just a number. Any advice on how to adapt? Is this just COVID burnout?
