Hi Everyone! Thank you all for joining! Please message ideas if we have a second call. I know Zoom can be hard. Also - FYI - This bowl limits posts to 2 every 4 hours so couldn't send anything earlier.
How do you have a Zoom chat? Do you need a membership? Anyone in this group want to do a zoom chat? Would be great talking to people in this group.
It's kinda bullshit that a lot of us worked hard to get into consulting and now have to deal with layoffs. While others are enjoying safe decent paying jobs even though they slack off.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
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!
What’s your go-to Slack message for bugging an exec for the 5th time about something they’re a blocker on?
When placed on a team where work is unevenly done/you have to start picking up the slack, how do you bring that up (nicely) in the team without going to the manager?
What are some options for video conferencing with clients one-on-one now that zoom is out? See: https://techcrunch-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/techcrunch.com/2020/03/31/zoom-at-your-own-risk/amp/ I'm looking for secure free options and am considering jitsi, skype and Cisco webex.
Vendor is trying to say he sent me an SMS but he isn't in my contact list nor do I see anything on my Skype log. The vendor doesn't use Skype. Is he lying or is it possible?
What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
I see tons of posts on here about how travel will not got back to normal and I completely disagree. Leading workshops in person with a white board, easily answering questions from different departments with little coordination (since your onsite don’t always need to plan a meeting), observing workflows in person to understand current state can not and is not getting replaced by zoom. I would say the effective rate is at 80/90% but the cost of travel is well worth the extra 10-20%.
2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
Let's see if anyone can guess how I feel about Monday morning and another week of endless Zoom meetings.
Does Salesforce (and its acquisition companies like Tableau and Slack) top up RSUs each year in addition to the original RSU grant at signing?
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
Anyone have any insight about the culture with Platinum Equity? I’ve been in discussions with them about a VP of Transformation role to work with their portfolio companies. No comp details yet
anyone heard of Indigo Consulting (US/Canada) who work in the Identity & Access management space? Company, culture & fit is great, thinking about a lateral move.
Anyone here on Microsoft corporate strategy & development team willing to chat? Kind of a dream exit opp for me.
Reflecting on a previous experience I had in consulting. How typical is it to just get straight up fired after you roll off a client project?
Rate your firm on its LGBT culture and support for LGBT professionals. Is it YAAAAAAAASSSS or boooooooo?
Anyone from RSM Philadelphia office? I will need referral. I am helping someone. Thank you very much.
How can I improve attention to detail? C here and made three careless mistakes on excel sheets (important data) in a row today. Feeling like I’m gonna get fired
I have multiple open SE and TAM roles on my team at mabl. Bonus points if you have some domain knowledge around software testing and/or DevOps. I’ve been here for 3 years and it’s a solid team and customers love our product! https://www.mabl.com/join-the-team

VP fish - what do you see as a realistic exit from IBD? I'm sure at least some of you are not interested in pursuing MD and chasing annual fee targets? Also, how is your potential exit comp vs IBD?
I just made a rental car reservation for a non-work trip in the spring for the first time in about 3 years. Rental fees are through the roof! 4.5 day rental, $291 base fee, $438 with all taxes and fees. 🙄
