Does anyone think Zoom Calls are actually counter-productive, and wish we could go back to regular conference calls?
My trainer just kicked my ass over zoom in a weighted cardio workout 🙌🏼💪🏼 I miss my gym but I’m thankful we can still workout
Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10% Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly? Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
Anyone else feel/felt out of breathe just talking a lot during a Zoom meeting? Third trimester and trying to have "Executive Presence" is so hard when you are bloated, burpy and winded during pregnancy.
What are y’all thoughts on using Slack for team collaboration? Is it just me or is the platform over complicated and clunky?
Just discovered a public slack channel (that very much should have been private) that a few women at my work have been using to bitch about the co-workers they don’t like. There’s a lot of very mean posts about several of the CDs, account people, producers etc. There’s quite a few hateful posts about me and my partner too 🙈 should I tell them?
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.
Skype issues anybody?
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
Thoughts on Zoom? Did a mistake to buy at $460 right after results. And it has been tanking since that day. Cut losses or hold? Thoughts please? Thanks.
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
Would you leave a good brand name consulting firm (making $140k TC) for a younger firm with a promotion (making $180k TC) - for context 2 YOE
Anyone in the National Guard or Reserves? How flexible are the firms to the regular leaves (assuming no deployment)? Anyone enlist/volunteer AFTER joining Big 4?

Broadly speaking, for a given generic consulting role, which B4 firm pays the most? Which pays the least?
Currently in tech consulting. Currently having a good offer to exit to a Program Manager role at a tech company. Should I do it? Will it harm my chance of getting back to consulting, especially strategy consulting later? Should I still accept the Program Manager offer if I plan to go to B-school in 2 years to pivot to strategy consulting?
Looking for OBGYN/Women's Health doctor recommendations. Any one have experience with doctors in NYC/NJ area they recommend? Preferably Black but I won't hold my breath over it.
Any advice on exit opps if I want to be involved in capital allocation (strategic M&A, divestitures, creating value,etc)? CFO track? More of a Corp dev role? PE portfolio companies could work?

Simone Biles showed the world that there’s no such thing as the wrong time to prioritize your health and safety. It might be inconvenient and costly, but it is never wrong.

Can Slalom Consulting 🐠 provide insight on the S&O interview process? I was advised it would consist of: 1. 1v1 with S&O member 2. Case interview 3. Interview with 1-2 leaders (potential mini cases). How is the process in general? Are the cases difficult?
Used an excuse Monday for one interview and have another on Friday but feel like I’d be super shady to come up with another “my pipes burst” thing. Do I just take a personal day or other suggestions?
Due to COVID impact on my family, I had to take a long break (10 months) from work, went back to the home country and be with them. Since things are settled now I would like to get back to work. I have over 9 years of experience and on H1-B visa. How should I justify the gap to the recruiters? What kind of questions can I expect?
