I can’t reach my EY or KPMG friend from my personal Skype. Wish I could, better than texting tbh. We at PwC can only message internally as well, unless IT adds an exception, and I don’t see any reasoning behind this but it is what it is (we use Google Chat/Hangouts btw)

Being that you can instantly share your screen via Skype....I could see firms not wanting some Staff 1 sharing their workpapers with their buddy at PwC.

funny

You can’t add them but you can send a meeting invite and join the meeting. You can then IM from there

Internal only for KPMG

No. I just went through this for a large client. Our firm has to open up a firewall exemption and coordinate it with the other Company’s IT department to get Skype to work both ways
