Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
One of my friends just hosted a Zoom happy hour. It was actually pretty nice. We caught up on the kids, what we were reading or watching and tips for staying positive. I definitely suggest this.
Anybody trying to be my Spanish speaking partner? Looking for anyone. If multiple people want to we can do a group thing where we’re all on zoom just speaking in Spanish too. I’m a beginner... M - Black - 25 - 7.439 (scale 1 to 10 on looks) - 7.440 (scale 1 to 10 on comedic level) - great listener - I have my dumb days like very very dumb 😅
Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
Sometimes when I feel like I'm having just an average day and my boss's skype says out of office I'm scared she has some kind of sixth sense about it and is on her way to come fire me. Anyone else?
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
Is there a way to get a WebEx plugin on Outlook? I can't stand logging into the portal every time I want to schedule a meeting.
Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.
I’m… too sexy for this slide, too sexy for this ping, too sexy for this zoom, too sexy for this email, too sexy for these edits yeah yeah… I’m too sexy for this pitch, too sexy for this manager, too sexy for this BD, too sexy for this firm, yeah yeah…
Should I just directly Slack someone in Sloan adcomms asking them whether they’ll send admitted and/or enrolled student a gift? I was really looking forward to that book man.
So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.
feeling sorry for the guy/girl who forgot their microsoft laptop/ tablet in an AA flight from DFW to ORD sitting in 16e. Turned it in just now. Hope you are in FB and you get it back.
Anyone work remotely and also have a remote supervisor? In an office environment where 90% of the team is working remotely, I’m trying to understand why the supervisor can’t also be remote.
I’m a 1st year prob 1 teacher & I just found out I’m pregnant (due mid-June). Definitely NOT planned and VERY stressed nervous. It’s hard to be happy right now. Advice on telling my principal, etc?

Have an offer as an Associate Director at equivalent comp (currently a manager). Role seems interesting. Not Familiar with delineation between SM / AD / D. AD is new to me. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks.
INSEAD candidate here, thinking about the exchange program with Wharton. Anyone here currently on campus? I'd love to know how much classes and activities are still being impacted by Covid.
I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?
Can anyone tell me if PwC's non-client-serving Director role is the same rank as an EY Director? Or, is it more like an EY Associate Director?
Ad agency designer desperately looking for an out but I have a possible new job opportunity. Here is my dilemma: Pros.... more money, no crazy client demands, pitches or decks or even prospective clients that will go nowhere (in-house), better benefits Cons.... this is a big one - it’s healthcare I’ve been at agencies with a range of clients for the past few years. Career suicide taking an in-house healthcare job? Especially if role focuses more on growth & performance over design?
For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:

I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.
Anyone here a US citizen who chose to leave in favor of London? I’m American but husband is European. He wants to return for the social culture of Europe but I just get traumatized by the pay in London and almost equally high cost of living as in tier 1 USA cities. I know money isn’t everything but hoping to hear about other Americans experiences . Thank you!
Interned at PwC this summer (going to be junior this fall), got a return offer for next summer that expires Sep 1st, got an interview with McKinsey approximately mid September and they said that I could expedite if I have competing offers. Does it help or hurt my chances of getting the Mck internship if I expedite and do it ASAP or will there not be enough turn around time in general to get an answer?
