Can you please share any software your firm uses that you find helpful? Including any add-ons to Microsoft office (for example: excel power query for indexing folders). Also, do you use any internal messaging system (maybe something like slack)? Thanks!
Ladies, how do I handle this? I’m on a team with two other women, one of whom is a mom. She leaves early pick up her kids. My coworker and I work late to pick up the slack. It doesn’t feel fair

Does anyone else find that they get way more nervous for zoom client meetings than they ever did for in person meetings? And how do you combat this? I just got feedback from the lead on my project that I didn’t seem confident when presenting my work in a client meeting last week. I have never gotten this kind of feedback before, I am normally good at presenting work. But I find I get more nervous for client meetings over zoom than when they were in person or even over zoom in the office.

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.
Zoom interviews coming up with two of the MBBs - should I stick with the safe option and go with a suit? BCG’s email and recruiter event said “business casual” but it sounds like a trap?

Was just looking at San Francisco properties and there seems to be a lot of supply and price cuts. Rents are way down too though. Do you think all those tech workers are coming back in a couple years or the remote work model is here to stay?
Really struggling to get enough protein when striving for a relatively high-protein diet. Everyone relies so heavily on protein shakes and bars but when I consume too much at once I feel bloated and nauseous. Like I can’t get through half a protein shake before feeling ill, or half a protein bar. Has anyone else struggled in the same way? Are there certain products you found that were better than others in terms of digestibility… or do I just need to eat a bunch of chicken every day? 😂
Hi!! Any tips/stories on actively interviewing while ✨pregnant pregnant✨. (27 weeks) All potential positions are fully remote, and they are all Mkting Manager/Senior Mkting Manager roles. I have three 2nd interviews coming up, and I am struggling with when to disclose! Two of the companies seem very mom-inclusive so far, so part of me wants to be upfront/honest to build a positive rapport as well as potentially negotiate maternity leave that I would otherwise not qualify for this far along!
Waiting to get fired any day now.

Does anyone else absolutely hate talking to recruiters to turn down roles? I had two offers come in, had to turn one down. Spent 30 minutes with recruiter saying no thank you, then he put 30 minutes on my calendar with the hiring manager. Then a couple of people that I interviewed with texted and emailed me to see if I could talk. I’m trying to my gracious and thankful, but saying no just gives me so much anxiety because I’m a true conflict avoider
