The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.
What are the etiquettes for brainstorming over hangout/zoom with creatives for you? Personally I find it really hard to keep everyone’s energy up.
We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.
Has anyone seen good engagement strategies for teams or slack? Looking for ways to increase engagement in an innovative way.
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Wharton Round 1 applicants, did you go through the Team Based Discussion on Zoom? I noticed the email just says “Interviews will be virtual with a second-year Wharton MBA Admissions Fellows”.

Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.

Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
Interviewing with a small firm. Have met with all 4 partners over zoom. Today I speaking with the associate over the phone. Recruiter says just informational and we both expect I’ll receive an offer. What kinds of questions should I ask the associate at this point?
Microsoft Teams is driving me crazy. I feel like I’m always at work. Yesterday I was at a family bbq and I was constantly getting pinged. Every time I get a message notification I feel like I’m about to have a panic attack.
Reminder for any members of AIR or production company EPs/HOPs/Bidders, if you wanna join the Green the Bid presentation on zoom tomorrow morning please hit me up privately!
Had a great start to the week. I was having a conversation with an attractive woman at the club last night. Turns out we were on the same flight and even upgraded to adjoining seats! Had a great time on the plane, too. Took an Uber to my hotel (after exchanging numbers with the lady). The hotel put me in a corner suite! Fantastic breakfast this morning. I will have to wait a day or two before texting my lady-friend. ( I WAKE UP AND THE FOG LIFTS ) Another day of zoom calls in my underwear
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)
Does anyone know if work extracurricular activities count for MBA applications in lieu of volunteer activities (e.g., Committees advising leadership, mentoring responsibilities for interns, etc.)
Isn’t the new Deloitte GPS comp model going to piss off high performers and make them leave and make low performers happy and encourage them to stay?
I got a new job and was told that I can only roll over pre-tax 401k because the company does not offer roth 401k. I have a lot more money stored in roth 401k from my previous employer.. what should I do to keep it?
What do you all think of the Quantly MBA? I’m older (35), with another advanced degree and some time chasing a dream (competitive dancer). I am looking to accelerate in the business world.
That HBS further consideration email 😩. Anyone know how many ppl / % get interview offer from this pool?

Where do you work and what are your company’s plan to return to office? Is it fully remote, hybrid or mandatory in office? Curious to know if other workplaces are also enforcing vaccination as a condition of employment.
My salary research leads me to believe an appropriate salary for a Group Strategy Director at a creative agency is $250k - 500k, with the average being $265k. Does that sound right to you? Does the band change for holding company/network agencies vs. indie shops? Would it be reasonable for a first time GSD to ask for $300k?
How much is the base compensation for an enterprise architect specialist leader at Deloitte with more than 10 years of experience ?

Just got told by managers that my performance hasn't met their expectations. High performer last year. Am I getting fired?
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
Anyone else getting sick of the grind and seriously considering a career move? What are you looking to do next?
Company flew me out for interviews. Paid for the flight and provided an expense form for taxis and one meal. Submitted expenses to them 10 days ago and they said check would be mailed. Nothing yet..
Gar nichts los in DE? 🧐 Wollte mich mal mit anderen Consultants über Gehälter unterhalten. In welchem Feld und welcher Karrierestufe seid Ihr unterwegs, und wie hoch ist euer (Ziel-)Gehalt? Ich habe 5 Jahre Berufserfahrung und komme mit Bonus bei ca. 70.000€ realistisch raus. Kann nicht einschätzen ob das gut oder schlecht ist. Auf dem Papier könnte es mehr sein, aber Wunsch und Wirklichkeit passen da nicht so 🥲 Wie sieht es bei euch aus?
