Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?
If you miss a zoom meeting your bosses are on as well as other attorneys because you overslept where you were supposed to share some updates on cases you are working on as part of the conversation, do you apologize and tell them you missed your alarm OR make something up (white lie) of something that came up that you had to deal with?
Would you hold a zoom issue against an applicant during an interview? I had a recruiter fail to send me a password for a meeting so we started 15 minutes late and I’m wondering how that looks internally. My gut says it doesn’t matter but I’ve never worked at a major firm.
Anyone else getting conflicting messages on whether it is permissible to use Zoom with federal agencies? Some are insisting on using it (MSPB), some are saying absolutely can't use it (DHS, USDA).
I just left my old firm and opened my own practice. I practice estate planning and elder law so it is not uncommon to meet clients at their homes or nursing facilities. Because we are in the middle of a pandemic and people are getting used to zoom conferences as well, I am considering foregoing a store front (at least until the pandemic is over). Has anyone opened their own firm and not opened a store front? If so, did that work? What were some things that helped you make it work? Thanks!
My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?

Is it unprofessional to quit over Zoom?
I talked about Zoom a lot. @easy day trade! Watch for it to break 447 on Friday big upside. I might day trade it again on Friday if it opens at 447 and hold
Having a hard time not feeling anxious/obsessing over “dumb” things said during Zoom calls, particularly more social chatty calls with people in my group. Anyone else ever feel this way? How do you deal with it?
Been thinking about investing in Uber ($44.52) and Slack ($34.09)... anyone here invested in one of these two? What’s your take on it?
Not sure consulting is the best way to spend life in my early 20s but damn, gotta do justice to your future self right? Just feels like i’m spending the best and healthiest years of my life with a screen and 15 Slack pings every 10 minutes. Maybe it’ll get better when things open up.
Ideas for a virtual happy hour/social events? We typically have associate social events every few months, but obv not now. Zoom lets you see everyone, but only one person can talk at a time. Ideas?
Boss wants a zoom call to discuss revisions at 6:15pm. It’s been an hour and still they haven’t entered the room. How do I respectfully let them know they’re wasting my time and we just talk about it tomorrow morning?!
Wish I was waking up in the love island villa tomorrow morning instead of waking up having to do my audit work 😭

Since LinkedIn is dying a fast death, is there any other professional networking site with better checks and balances out there? If it isn’t, I see a very good business opportunity.
Has anyone taken time off work because of their mental health? Did it help? Feel like I am at a breaking point but worried if I do it once I’ll end up doing it for the rest of my career
