Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
Does Salesforce (and its acquisition companies like Tableau and Slack) top up RSUs each year in addition to the original RSU grant at signing?
My 2nd grader & 24 of his classmates behave and communicate better on their daily zoom call.
Do you call people via Skype/Teams as you would on your phone (no warning) or do you ping/chat first to ask if they are available to call?
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
Anyone know any good local bartenders/bars who are doing cocktail making classes via zoom? Hoping to organize an event for a group that I’m part of. We would pay obviously.

What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
I don't understand the obsession of always having your camera on on Zoom, especially when people call you out on it in front of a group. Or maybe I'm just weird
Memo to Colleagues. For the love of God, please stop sending me Skype meeting invites. Please use a platform that is stable and not buggy. You’re welcome.
I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes. I feel uncomfortable being recorded and even more uncomfortable not knowing where it is going to be used. How do I say no to a conservative teacher who will push very hard for me to do it anyway?
Strangest place you've ran a webex. Go!
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
Brace yourself, Dec 28 is tomorrow, and anxious IRS fan-base is gonna come knocking into your zoom
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
Just got off a zoom call where the CFO pulled out his JUUL and ripped a few. Don’t think he knew he was on webcam
Just got laid off. What are the top skills I should plan to learn on the side while recruiting? Senior Associate looking for strategy and ops roles, no industry preference
Just curious to hear from Other fishes - how much of your salary do you invest in 401k? Myself and my husband so 12% each also because we are not us citizens yet. But thinking of maximizing it to 18%
This statement made by a colleague infuriates me: “HR has the responsibility but not the authority to change disinterested leadership" Just makes me think what's the point then? Do you agree?
Financial Advisor comp question - what does your incentive comp structure look like for net new business vs growth of existing business?
Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?
Former KPMG fish, when you got severance, was it lump sum or paid out like your normal paycheck?
Time at big 4 is like serving in the marines Its got a good reputation, people respect it, it's hard and painful but good character development, & almost everybody leaves eventually Great unique exp

Passed up for a promotion at boutique TMT mgmt consulting firm and pretty tired of working IB hours for consulting pay... — anyone have tips on best ways to leapfrog to PE without MBA? (Ie how to prepare for interviews / network etc) Stats: 3.4 from target school (non-ivy)
My project for the past 5 months has been unbearable, and for various reasons I’m at my lowest point ever mentally. Everyday is a struggle; I’ve been hanging on by a thread to make it to the Friday end date, feeling obligated to fulfill my commitment to my team. However, the client has unexpectedly just extended us to mid-September, and has increased the pressure. I’m shattered and don’t think I can do it. I’d love your advice....especially on how to bow out without completely burning bridges.
