Zoom drinking games
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
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?
I don’t wanna join this virtual happy hour. What should be my excuse given everyone should be available stuck at home?
What are your worst Slack grievances?
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.
Is there a way to automate money transfers to India in Indian currency ? Currently use zoom and don’t think there is a way
Haven't seen anyone put "Available for Staffing" in their Skype location. Seeks like it would be helpful for people in your network to know you're free without contacting everyone. Any downside?
Damn really can’t afford to slack off today. But having a hard time focusing. Any suggestions ?
Where are my SoFla people at? 25 M looking to have an intelligent conversation that isn't on zoom...
Y’all be letting these white people see y’all drinking on these virtual happy hour calls?
Looking for some virtual-meeting best practices to fight Zoom fatigue. Anyone work for an agency (or know of an agency) who’s trying something different with them? Thanks in advance.
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
I’m a Energy Brokerage Company who is use people to people meeting. . I have a zoom account, but can’t get people to answer phones or set up zoom meetings. Any advice?.
As a staff on the consulting side, does anyone else find it awkward to join a zoom call with the client before the manager/sm joins in?
Regular tips and strategies to keep meeting facilitation fresh? I host a lot of meetings every week with my teams and I’d love a way to keep up on new ways to engage people (mostly over zoom). Any great orgs or circles that share this kind of content?

Captain just asked us to sing happy birthday to a flight attendant and turned up all the service request lights as candles! 🎂
Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true? Continuing below:
People who came to the US on L1B, and successfully switched jobs (assuming visa switch from L1B to H1B), could you please share your experience or provide any useful tips? Feeling stagnant and trapped at my current job partly due to visa restrictions and ofcourse the pandemic situation. Looking to jump ship but not even sure if it's possible on an L1B.
Being promoted to a direct manager of my previous peers after a relatively short time. Any advice on team building and maintaining a strong culture with these changes?
Hey folks, Has anyone transferred their H1B to another employer? How did it go, eg did you need to stop working / leave the country/ anything else? How long does it take? Anyone with a Green card in process - has it affected you in any way? Thanks!
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
Is IT considererd as Tech in India?
Flying for personal reasons this weekend and the Delta flights I have been on lack any sort of urgency to get us to the destination. Is this normal at Delta or during non-business hours in general?
Best way to prep for the McKinsey PEI interview?
Anyone have a salary range for BAH Communications Specialist - Mid with a CI poly and 4 YOE?
I know of someone that got away with working for two different Big 4 firms at the same time for nearly a year before one of them found out and fired him. Curious if there are any others out there?
I have 7 yoe in Automation testing of UI plus Rest API applications. Currently having 7 lpa salary. Holding multiple offers in the range of 12-14 lpa. I heard market standard for automation tester with 7 yoe is 20 lpa. Should I join 14 lpa job or wait for better offer. My last working day is October 1st week. Never got interview call from product based companies.
During my internship at K in the Southwest, I always observed that interns formed groups based on race even at the dinner table. I was the only one from my race and it was so tough to get into a group
🐠 fam - how’s FAANG sr prod manager screening different than consulting manager role with MBB? Anything out of the usual? Have an interview coming up soon and help will be great!
