Anybody have an epic zoom mishap story?
Free online guided meditation class!! 🍃Topic: Lighten the Mind Time: Oct 31, 2020 03:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) Zoom ID: 846 6007 8762 Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84660078762. Come, find hope and peace.
Company : Hey take this money and buy an office chair, table ,extra monitors, accessories to setup your home office. Me : Hey! Thanks. Company : Are you now comfortable working from home and feel productive ? Me : Yeah. Company: Awesome! Now come back to your base location and spend majority of your time working from a rented place where you will miss both Working from home and working from office.
My manager decided starting Monday, we're having all-day silent zoom meetings- we connect with cameras on and he watches us work. He has control issues & they're getting worse. Any way out of this?
Is anyone going else confused and upset agencies are making people go back into the office? Commuting is horrific and wastes time, and honestly I work more efficiently from home without distractions. All for the option to go in, I just think it’s super tone deaf to make people go in again. The world’s changed. Don’t move backwards.
@work from home peeps, which tools & apps do you use to make it easy to collaborate? Concepting and presenting with creative partners via Skype video? Screen share? Google docs? Any others?
Co-worker just messaged me on Slack - it's her first year with us - CW: "Hey, how does holiday time work? Christmas is a saturday. Do we get the week off?"
I opened a zoom meeting tonight and met two great people!! It was really nice to talk shop. If you're on Facebook, I created a group called "The E-learning Shit Show". Feel free to join us!!
After finishing the last Zoom call for the week
What is your personal policy on how fast you will respond to client emails? How about emails for new prospective clients/new business? I personally am really hard on myself over fast communications by email and Slack. I haven’t gotten in trouble for anything but keep feeling this immense pressure I put on myself to be always on or respond within a few hours.
I’m having some issues w/ my director. My organization has given us 10 ETO days to use for Covid related issues. We’ve been going back&forth on this, the language is ambiguous&he thinks I’m asking to use this inappropriately. We had a meeting yesterday to discuss this because he brought this up to legal&recorded it without my prior approval - I showed up to the webex&it announced the meeting was being recorded). I’ve asked for the recording and still haven’t received it- what would you do next?
What boundaries do you have in place as a FL? I just started and I feel like a hot mess with too much to do (business things, new calls, client work, slack, multiple emails, timesheets 💀). I’m so tired.
That awkward moment when you’re on a zoom, client asks a question, there’s a pause for your team to answer and you realize there’s a cricket trapped in your house that has decided to chirp right during that exact moment of silence 🦗
My manager just told be to stop smoking during a zoom meeting. Am I wrong to think this is unreasonable? I’m in my own home.
Ideas how to be a supportive friend to a single guy living alone and avoiding all social interaction because of covid? He was such a close friend before, but now we do zoom hangouts less and less often. I'm married and don't know what single folks are going thru right now but I'm truly worried about him. I've dropped off goodies and suggested safer activities like masked hikes or bike rides but he's not comfortable with that, and looks like we can't get vaccinated for awhile yet.
Do you ever have parents sitting with their child on one of your zoom classes? Anything weird or awkward ever happen?

Where is a new build???
My company is now displaying!
👶🏻 🐠 here, What mistakes/pitfalls have you made in your career that you wish had been avoided? What should a new generation of consultants look out for?
Cheapest thing you've done after making more than $100K: (e.g. Taking toiletries from a hotel)
How much do we really need in order to retire? I am 41 and have 2M in stocks/cash and fully own my apt (3M). I have no outstanding debt and ready to find an exit.
Write a horror story in 5 words or less. I’ll go first: “Known for great conversation"
Male Leadership: Don't consistently dismiss and quiet junior females when they speak up or share feedback. Just because I'm a female does not mean I am "reading too much into things."
If you make 180k but could not save anything, can you blame your low income? Meaning if people make less than 180k, can they actually save money? Single here.
Has anyone backed into something with a rental car? I want to pay out of pocket so it doesn't hike up my insurance.
Dm me for a referral to KPMG
Among consulting firms which one is strongest in core tech AI/ML Big Data projects? McKinsey, PwC, Deloitte, Accenture or KPMG?? Looking for tech-based projects only, no fluffy ppt work....
Just came across this thought experiment in Dan Ariely’s The Upside of Irrationality on our need for meaningful work. How did this man get in my head? 😅 “Imagine you work for some company and your task is to create PowerPoint slides. Every time you finish, someone takes the slides you’ve made and deletes them. As you do this, you get paid well and enjoy great fringe benefits...How happy would you be to work at such a place?”
