TLDR: junior associates just don’t get it. When I was a junior associate I couldn’t imagine telling a senior associate on the day an assignment was due that I had other more urgent deadlines and I couldn’t get to their assignment. Are you kidding me? When we’re you going to communicate this? Am I supposed to just pick up the slack here and do your work for you? Our client deadline hasn’t changed. Was it just going to magically get done? WTF
I want to hear from ZS girls here. I genuinely like a girl from a different team. It all started when i helped her out with an adhoc task. Uske baad i stalked her insta.. and now i open insta only to see her stories and posts!! Do teen baari zoom mai baat kiya hai after that task (haalchaal wgera). Now how do I make my move, just want her to know my feelings for her. I don’t want her to think of me as a creep or something..
For those who took clients out for meetings pre-covid- Do you feel like people are more likely to accept a meeting now because of the ease of Zoom from home, or less likely because there are no free food, coffee or drinks involved? Or a third reason, comment below!
Wats your take guys ? I don't like hybrid model as it works for those who are locals of same city where the office is . For me i have to leave my parents, hometown and travel 2000kms to Bangalore for joining office how it is hybrid for me ? I still worry about myself and family health not sure about COVID. Also most of my team sits in Hyderabad few are in Bangalore .office should be optional. Indeed we were able to work in past 2 years right ? Then why force people to office ?

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
On a Zoom call: Colleague A: *begins talking* Colleague B: *begins talking at the the same time as A* Colleague B: "I'm sorry, A. Go ahead" Colleague B: (said with much attitude) "No, B. You go ahead. I'm sure what you have to say is more important anyhow." Everyone else on the call: *Stunned silence....*
Co-worker just messaged me on Slack - it's her first year with us - CW: "Hey, how does holiday time work? Christmas is a saturday. Do we get the week off?"
After building up the members, we can arrange a Zoom speed dating call! Open to other ideas as well on how to use this for people looking to date
After finishing the last Zoom call for the week
What is your personal policy on how fast you will respond to client emails? How about emails for new prospective clients/new business? I personally am really hard on myself over fast communications by email and Slack. I haven’t gotten in trouble for anything but keep feeling this immense pressure I put on myself to be always on or respond within a few hours.
I’m having some issues w/ my director. My organization has given us 10 ETO days to use for Covid related issues. We’ve been going back&forth on this, the language is ambiguous&he thinks I’m asking to use this inappropriately. We had a meeting yesterday to discuss this because he brought this up to legal&recorded it without my prior approval - I showed up to the webex&it announced the meeting was being recorded). I’ve asked for the recording and still haven’t received it- what would you do next?
What boundaries do you have in place as a FL? I just started and I feel like a hot mess with too much to do (business things, new calls, client work, slack, multiple emails, timesheets 💀). I’m so tired.
That awkward moment when you’re on a zoom, client asks a question, there’s a pause for your team to answer and you realize there’s a cricket trapped in your house that has decided to chirp right during that exact moment of silence 🦗
My manager just told be to stop smoking during a zoom meeting. Am I wrong to think this is unreasonable? I’m in my own home.
Ideas how to be a supportive friend to a single guy living alone and avoiding all social interaction because of covid? He was such a close friend before, but now we do zoom hangouts less and less often. I'm married and don't know what single folks are going thru right now but I'm truly worried about him. I've dropped off goodies and suggested safer activities like masked hikes or bike rides but he's not comfortable with that, and looks like we can't get vaccinated for awhile yet.

Looking to connect with someone who works in the Atlanta area (remote or in person) for questions regarding SIPR. Additionally, if there are individuals in this area that know of resources to use to find places that are hiring (consulting, tech, startup, etc.) in Atlanta specifically, please drop below. FYSA, I have just over 3 YOE (1 consulting, 2 government) and TS level clearance. Thanks!
Is there a difference between 250k salary and 400k salary? Both salaries are watching spiderman on opening night. Both salaries have food on the table and a roof over their heads. One has a 65in tv vs the other has 75in. One drives a BMW the other a Tesla. I make around 250k and to increase my salary I will have to work a lot more. Is it really worth having more money, at some point it is just a number and quality of life doesn't improve. In fact it could be worse with the extra hours.
I just received an offer within the industry and I'm excited to join. That said, they have come in at the bottom of my range (I said $320k when I started talking with them in December, and upgraded that to $350k based on market movements since then) I'm particularly bothered by the clawback on my bonus payments until my LTIP kicks in. Below I'm attaching my redacted offer letter and draft response. Looking for feedback on my response (whether reasonable, any improvements). Thanks.
Want to buy a decent overhead headphone for audio quality that's <$500, any audiophile can recommend some brands/models?
Sheraton front desk during check in: "Oh it looks like I have you in the same room as last week and... for the next 4 months. You may as well never leave." Me: "...That's the plan." 😒
Has consulting lost its luster? Anyone notice the declining caliber of talent in consulting? …
Just got a huge offer from a start up! 300k base. I heard RECESSION starts in July 2022, does it make sense to keep my 150 K job at Accenture and reject the offer? Don’t want to risk getting fired from start up. Please share some advice. I heard it on the news today, Nasdaq is at a 14 year low
So I earn about $10k a day in a side gig... should I continue to work in consulting? With the work from home thing I can do both.
