Is it unprofessional to quit over Zoom?
Lync/Skype - 12% = collaborating on business: 88% = shit talking the person speaking at that very moment
🐠 sans children: you’re first call tomorrow is 7:00a. Not Zoom. Given your normal routine - what time do you set your alarm?
Day 3 after a endoscopic brow lift and eyelid surgery. I’m too bruised to go anywhere or be seen on zoom. Surgery was to improve my peripheral vision being hampered by my lids. I didn’t realize how angry-intense looking this happy looking woman had become. Anyone considering this procedure? I don’t look intense anymore.
Anyone feel like the latest batch of new hires absolutely suck? I think not being in the office and not having expectations made clear makes it easy for them to slack off.
At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
Scrabble is the Skype of Omnicron
Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.
After 3 months of having to use mobile Skype instead of desktop I can say the only good thing about it is I can ignore messages and people will just think it didn’t go through. Otherwise it’s garbage.

I'm looking for Bluetooth wireless headset for taking zoom, teams call which has great noise cancellation features (voice) and is compatible with laptop without any USB dongle. Have gone through so many reviews, but didn't help. What are you using folks?
I started sitting on an exercise ball to improve my core and apparently I was subconsciously bouncing up and down during a zoom meeting. Two people pinged me asking what I was doing— I am so embarrassed😩
Do you think you qualify of life would be better at a firm that doesn’t use Skype/Teams, where it shows if and when you’re online? I think that is my biggest complaint about the firm I am at.
How many of you use Skype and not Teams?
When you accidentally turn on your Skype video while shirtless during a quarterly team meeting w/management and it takes you a minute to realize it...omg
Showers: Zoom or masked / distanced (and ideally vaxxed!)? Looking at last weekend in Feb or first in March. Will be too cold where we live to hold a shower outside. What are you ladies doing? Any ideas on how to make it fun?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
$$$ ACN actual salary data $$$ location, level, actual pay - happy or not with market? -- go
If I have my therapist write me a note for an Emotional Support Animal, when do I provide that to a landlord? Before applying, during, after? Can they deny my request?
Ideas for reaching out to alumni on LinkedIn you didn't know well in regards to a position at their firm? I feel that if I didn't mention the position in the intro email, I would be coming of as insincere. Any one else feel this way or advice to get around this? Thanks!
I want to get a rhinoplasty because it’s the one thing that’s always bothered me physically about myself and it’s especially potent now because of seeing my face on zoom all day. Cont in comments
I’m currently making 82K in NYC. Coming up on 5 years of experience and have my manager fighting for my raise. Assuming it happens, is 95-105k crazy to expect?
Cold applied to McKinsey and have an initial interview coming up. Should I expect a normal screening discussion (discuss the role, experience, salary, etc)? Also open to any advice for an experienced hire moving through the interview process.
Partners: How do some partners get fired? I know that on the surface it is due to their performance, but i am curious if you have any data points or observations on any underlying drivers. I work for a global firm, and though most partners I know are lifers, i personally have worked with a couple partners who were counseled out. They were seemingly good, competent consultants good at structuring problems. They cared about junior consultants. Didnt see any issues with clients..
What percentage is a typical annual increase for a tax SM at CohnReznick? Thinking about applying. I know this depends on many factors but can someone give me a range?
Should you wear a tie for a McKinsey interview over zoom? Recruiter said business casual, is that a trap? Jk but really would a jacket and dress shirt be fine
Today was my father-in-law's funeral. Which is hard enough on my husband and me trying to figure out the right way to support. But after the service, my MIL asked me if "people were nice to me at church since...ya know." And I said yes. And she said "good. I'm glad to hear that. we all have our sins that we continue to keep doing without repentance, so yours is no different." I have never bit my tongue that hard in my LIFE.

Has anyone heard of/have an opinion on Wavestone? Smaller euro based consulting firm. Interviewing with them this week, they seem to better align with what I want to do as a consultant right now and would love to hear others opinions on the firm as a whole.
Ladies - Are there any Tory Burch flats that don't set off the TSA metal detectors? I currently have the Revas, but the metal logo always sets off the alarm. Any recommendations for travel days?
Has anyone been to wich which? I'm just discovering it at my new location's airport and my biggest fear is not having enough time to eat a sandwich before my flight 😖
