How - literally how - do I ask people to respect home/ work boundaries without coming off difficult? I feel burnt out from zooms, the noise from Slack and then the f**king SMSs that arrive on my personal cellphone. It’s like being watched 24/7. At the beginning we had an idealistic ‘no meetings 1-2pm’ block in everyone’s calendar but it lasted about 2 weeks. Also I actually resent being contacted constantly on my personal phone when I don’t have a work one.
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
I don’t think I’d survive this job without Skype and talking to coworkers throughout the day
Fishes who moved from big4 to AWS(Amazon). How was your experience with AWS culture, WLB . Heard really bad about PIP culture
What are some of the top boutique HR consulting firms (talent strategy, organizational culture, organizational development)?
Anyone else here that doesn't drink? Sometimes find it hard to get to know other coworkers when so much of office culture (at least at the analyst / associate level) revolves around drinking.
Anyone exited to AbbVie? Saw a position of interest but curious about culture and WLB, and how much a referral helps vs. cold applying.
Shortest (Substantive) Hearing? I spent hours preparing a motion and the weekend preparing a reply brief for the judge to come out (well Zoom out), call the case, and say “I’m happy this motion was filed so I can revisit my prior order that I granted by mistake.” Uhhhh, ok. Thanks.
Any 🐠 🐟 from Charles Schwab ? Would love to know more about product mgmt team and culture. TIA!
If you’re going to shout “shut the fuck up” to your staff during a conference call make sure your skype is on mute first. Amateur hour out here.
Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are. I didn’t quite know how to answer fairly since I’m from the Midwest, and that answer can be so regional, not to mention cultural! What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!
While we are in this WFH situation, I like to blast music all day to keep me energized and engaged (when l’m not on Zoom calls). What are y’all listening to? (Spotify user here 💁🏾♀️ and playlist suggestions are welcome)
I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.

Is there a way where you can have a zoom lesson while doing an interactive pear deck? Is there a way to do a poll?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
We know all the married people on here gettin’ laid because WFH... or at least they were before someone got on someone’s last nerve. Shout out to the singles who were mid drought pre quarantine...
What’s the freelance world in Asia like? Are freelancers in demand like the US? Or is it totally different over there? And how are remote freelance gigs these days?
Is this weird: just discovered my contract (boutique agency under a major holding company) doesn’t allow for time and a half overtime. OT=regular hourly rate.
Anyone have any insight into the comp for TPM/PM role within security/privacy at google?
Current M2 looking to make a change. In Healthcare and Life Sciences Regs and Ops. Came from industry where I oversaw compliance for 6 hospitals. Anyone willing to reach out to discuss referrals?
I'm up for promotion to S1 in August. What %raise/bonus should I expect? Overall rating 4
Client: "Do you have any insight on this?" Translation: "You guys majorly screwed this up, but we don't know any more than you do."
My work was very understaffed prior to COVID. I hope the healthcare industry learns from this experience and increases staffing appropriately.
Anyone received an RFE on your green card application? EB1-3 applicant here; GC filed in Oct ‘19, received RFE in May ‘20. Unsure about the timeline - would appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

Anyone thought about moving abroad? This US work culture is killing me, want to get away from it
Hey all - considering applying to two roles. One is with UnitedHealth and another one says Optum advisory. Does anyone have insights into work culture and pros/cons of one organization vs the other? How easy is it to move within UHG?
What is the salary like for junior in house counsel positions (2 years of experience) at Amazon and how does it grow over the years?
Interviewing with a company I’m excited about and they requested to have the next level (I believe final level) be pushed to the second week of January since they’re team is overwhelmed. I agreed and suggested times and am waiting to hear back. Meanwhile I had another company reach out this past week for a role I’m less excited over. They’ve already reached out for my final interview round this week. I already disclosed that I’m waiting to hear from a company I’ve been interviewing with. Cont’d.
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
