Agency producers help me out as I’m consulting with a friend who owns a regional prod co. Are you more likely to take an in person meeting or a zoom or phone call with a production company rep?
Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10% Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly? Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
How do I tell my manager I'm leaving the firm? First time quitting a job and I don't know the etiquette. I assume a Zoom is better than an email. Do I tell him where I'm going and why? Do I tell other people too or let him do it? Any important details to take care of?
I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

Would it be considered “unprofessional” or “frowned upon” to use pikachu as my picture on outlook, chat apps, zoom, etc, instead of my ugly face?
Skype ping noise = ptsd
are Skype calls always awkward
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
Anyone feel almost shamed or snarky comments are said when you do your job or don’t slack like some of the coworkers? I don’t want to be rude but also want to let them know it’s not cool.
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.
Is it appropriate to message a recruiter (at Deloitte on Skype) on about a full time analyst position that I am interested in? Currently an intern at Deloitte

New to recovery and had an intake call with an IOP program. They said all sessions will be on Zoom and I’m really nervous that I won’t connect to the program virtually. Anyone start rehab virtually?
Skype signs me in and out randomly several times throughout the day -but only at home.... office and other networks never happens. Could this be a modem/router issue?
I moved in with my SO when covid started! We have challenges with our separate careers. She is a teacher and constantly complains about being on zoom for 4hrs per day with kids, and how she is bored from when she gets off at 4 and I get off at 6. I don’t even know what to say to her as everything I’m doing is much more difficult at work. Outside of work, she isn’t the type of person to cook (and does not understand she can eat from the kitchen and not have to order things) - meaning...

might be wrong bowl, but what are some remote job ideas for retired adults? trying to help my mom find something…
I put in my two weeks about a week and a half ago. Upon putting in my two weeks, I immediately told all my managers so we can start planning for transition. They all sat on it and now I'm running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to transition work. I kinda want to push back because I'm super overwhelmed and I honestly don't know how I'll get through everything they want me to do without working the whole weekend. I am just being a big baby? Or ideas of how to push back?
Are there specific MBA programs that have good connections to aerospace / aviation field? Kind of niche I know
My sister and I are 29 and 31, respectively. I’m struggling with something that has irked me our entire lives. My parents pay for things like her dog’s medical bills, vacations and moving expenses. They always want to help. The problem is they’ve never offered to pay for those things for me, and I’ve never asked because I’m a fully grown adult and don’t want them to spend their retirement on us. She has savings and isn’t struggling financially. Why does this bother me so much?
My life's first interview after graduation in HR is for the Recruiter post in " Concentrix". I am a bit nervous because I don't wanna miss this opportunity so please my fellow seniors give me some tips and advice for my first interview. I will really appreciate that. Thank you
I’m interviewing on Monday and the HR rep said the office is “casual so to wear whatever I feel comfortable in” ...how would you interpret that? Obv. don’t look sloppy but also an open range here...

New to single mom life and just recently started to (try) dating again. Met a guy - we got along very well and dated a few times but when I told him about my child, he said he couldn’t imagine having a relationship w/ someone who has a child that’s not his. I’m heartbroken - it feels like a loss beyond my control. How should I overcome this? We are both 32yo if that helps.
Any thoughts on Morning Brew as a workplace? Love their newsletter and podcasts. I am super keen about the space but I'm not sure if it's worth the pay cut from Manager level in MBB
Anyone actually keep their PHR active? I got my cert in 2013 and have done nothing since.

Seeing how 401k’s, ira’s etc..are mostly based in stocks. What happens if we have another Great Depression and the stock market crash’s. Even if you have Real estate investments, if ppl can’t pay rent like with Corona, that’s not really helpful. So what are other ways in addition to those mentioned is there to help secure you into old age? ￼
