A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Is there a way to automate money transfers to India in Indian currency ? Currently use zoom and don’t think there is a way
This has been on my mind for a few weeks, and I have to get it off my chest: Via slack, did you PING him? Or did you PANG him? Heard someone say PANG one time and now I’m lost…
That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
If I'm expected to take a Zoom call during my lunch hour, I'm eating on camera. Also, who cares if my lemonade happens to have a salt rim - let's just focus on the work.
Any suggestions for virtual happy hour - scotch, wine, cocktail, mocktail tasting (vendors, logistics, rough pricing etc.)? Location: US, Canada
Looking to start some advisory consulting for a small Systems Integrator that I have worked previously when with a larger firm previously. Looking for contract templates that I could leverage as a starting point. Legal Zoom or other options. Welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
What’s your teams view on being online (jabber, Skype, lync etc) especially on remote days?
Prepping for my first Zoom call of the day...
Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
Anyone interested in a Manager, External Reporting role with a growing technology company (recent IPO) in Manhattan? $125k + bonus with WFH flexibility. If so, DM me. Interviews will be conducted via Zoom.
in BCG’s Zoom interview guide they’re suggesting to use Zoom’s whiteboard function now - did or has anyone actually been using this instead of pen/paper?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
This “always on” slack/teams culture needs to end. Timestamped emails after and before work hours should be penalised as signs of poor time management skills and project management efficiencies. I hope we do like germans and labor laws are made for after work hour messaging.
Feeling like consulting isn’t the best career for me b/c of the lifestyle and I met someone who I hate being apart from every wk. But I always wanted to reduce gender gap, so I feel conflicted/guilty.
Does anyone have insight into why some consulting firms have better h1b approval than others? Post-mba consultant at D and I’m seeing friends at other firms with much better approval rates after graduation from mba but I imagine we do very similar types of work
Is there a resource for understanding compensation at FAANG for positions that strategy consultants tend to exit into?
Anyone letting their hair grow out and donating to charity after COVID ends? I haven’t gotten a haircut since before the pandemic and don’t feel safe to get one until it is over. For people who have donated hair before any organizations you would recommend?
Due to social distancing rules, when the kids come into school in the morning, they have to immediately report to their classrooms. I get it, but I also don't have time to entertain them as I'm prepping for class. What can I do to keep them busy?
We have a parent who always holds up traffic during morning drop off by parking and sitting in her car right in front of the building. How should I address it?
What made you decide to quit or resign from the big 4? I am super tired already and don't think I can perform well anymore. Seriously considering leaving without any job prospect as I can't - cont'd
Interesting study.. After vaccination was readily available - more COVID hospitalizations fit the “mild or asymptomatic” (52% from the dataset) compared to 64% before vaccinations were readily available. Median age 71 years old. This study suggests that A. Vaccination has brought down severity and B. People are going to the hospital/ICU when they don’t need to
I feel like I can’t redeem my career. I’ve been out of paying work since I graduated. My bar was delayed due to a medical problem and since then I’ve only been able to find volunteering. I’ve been working for free for 2 years now. My network is tapped, my mentors are confused why I can’t find anything, my law school’s career services actually gave up on me, I don’t have the money to move to a new place, I have no other support and I can’t even go back to retail because nobody’s hiring out here.
If you have a position with multiple strikes and or expiration, how do you decide which ones to close first?
Manager level, looking to exit soon. M&A experience predominantly. Any tips on where to look first (or “how” to look, LinkedIn kinda sucks) and roles? Preferable compensation around $180-200k, otherwise why leave (not miserable, just exploring options) Any/all ideas welcome.
Got offered my dream job - but want the comp to be higher. How do I go about negotiating without being too aggressive? They offered 100k and the initial range they gave was 95-110
Hey I’m looking at KPMG for their senior associate, federal healthcare policy. I was wondering if anyone here works or has worked for them and what your experience is/was?
I am fed up of my male cw partner who'd only write scripts involving male characters even though I am constantly telling him that we need to be mindful of diversity and inclusion. What should I do??
