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?
moms- coming in as a partner level from outside the firm. what are female@partners wearing on zoom calls? casual? put together but semi casual? full blazer- suit situation? Thx
My team is trying to find a better way to track talent. We have an ATS we like for everything but tracking the talent pipeline. Anyone have good one off tools they use for talent pipeline tracking? Even better if it integrates with Microsoft Teams.
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.
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?
My hardly working co worker has fallen asleep leaving me to pick up her slack… 😾 worst part is she is too cute to be angry at… 👿
I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due. I already went down in hours this past year because of the pandemic and my Team had to pick up the slack. I also was told yesterday that the team struggled when I went down in hours. I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know
EY on friday: from now on, Skype will no longer log in automatically. Use teams. Monday: partner does a f/u meeting on Skype.
are Skype calls always awkward
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the strength of so many other meeting platforms.
Anyone interested in a virtual networking event via zoom? Could help expand our network during this disruptive time - thoughts?
every time zoom asks me how was my meeting experience, I always have a desire to click bad. Not because of zoom, just because of the meeting itself
What to wear for zoom interviews?
You know it's going to be a productive day when you open your laptop and your Skype tag already says busy outside of working hours.
I feel so undervalued at my job. I work my ass off and pick up other peoples slack, working above my level and still other people get higher praise. I don’t know what to do anymore. I want to give up.
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.
Anyone else experiencing texting fatigue during the pandemic? I love my friends, but after a full day on zoom calls the last thing I want to do is talk or text about the minutiae of everyday life. I feel like once a week or every couple of days is a happy medium for me. I know my friends mean well and they’re great, but the constant texting is wearing me out! Curious if other people feel this way?
Hello all. I have a total YoE of 3.5 years. I am currently working in PI. I want to exit the big 4 and enter industry. Any suggestions on exit opportunities would be highly appreciated.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Ok so, is it just me...or are the big 4 just hogwarts houses? Kpmg is clearly all hufflepuffs. PwC probably gryffindor but also ravenclaws. Deloitte for sure slytherin Ey...ravenclaw
Big 4 manager looking to make a switch to MBB. Any tips on the application process and do I have to take a step down in rank?
Passed over for a promotion a third time, even after doing everything, and more, you’re supposed to? It’s time to GTFO
Female 🐠 - has anyone had a laparoscopic myomectomy? Would like to hear how long it took you to return to: 1.) light remote work 2.) full time remote work 3.) traveling to client. Thanks
Planning to jump off the Big 4 ship for better WLB while with hopes for better compensation. Which one is better for customer facing cyber roles between AWS and Microsoft ?
Being a lawyer is like “if i can just get through this week i’ll be ok” but it’s every freaking week

Hi All, Did anyone know about the company Trane Technologies and know any insights about the company? Trane Technologies is manufacturing company of HVAC. Not sure about company work culture and other details. Now I got an offer from wipro for 18LPA(17 fixed + 1lakh variable). And there is a offer from Trane Technologies for 16LPA. So not sure to choose between 16LPA product based company or 18LPA service based company. Help me here.
Internally transferred into FDD as an audit senior 3. My coach and partner have indicated that I’m still eligible for promotion to manager based on years of experience. I’m trying to gauge the actual likelihood of this happening. Obviously firms bring in audit managers at the manager level with no FDD experience but would love to know if it’s possible/likely to be promoted to manager with less than a year of experience. I’d advise anyone in audit to transfer sooner rather than later!
Salam all! Wanted to ask how you schedule your PTOs around Eid + Ramadan. Especially any of you who have flex time off; would you WFH the entirety of Ramadan? Would you go on PTO all of Ramadan?
