So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
Is downloading Microsoft Teams on your phone a safe option, or does it give access to your employer? (Personal phone, not work phone). I know that logging into work email gives some kind of permission to your company, but does Teams do that as well?

Recommendations for a good webcam for Zoom meetings? My laptop camera isn’t cutting it anymore.
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?
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?
Is there a way to automate money transfers to India in Indian currency ? Currently use zoom and don’t think there is a way
Damn really can’t afford to slack off today. But having a hard time focusing. Any suggestions ?

What is the acceptable time frame to follow up with someone who is tardy for a zoom call? What’s the allowed grace period? Five minutes? Ten minutes?
I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.
Frustrated with work as we all are. Single mom insurance defense litigation for mid sized NYC based firm. Base salary is 136k nominal bonuses.

Just curious if what I am making is going rate, am of counsel after taking 6 years off of practice 10+ years practicing. Thanks!
Is it bad that I want to staff my project with an LGBT staff? My project is 16 straight people and it’s just too much for me. EY LGBT staff raise a hand!
Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates. Usually the client contact is a hiring manager for the position. How do I show interest without completely shooting myself in the foot? While I ultimately do want to exit the firm, I also don’t want to be openly broadcasting my intent to leave by telling the firm attorney(s) that I’m interested. Thoughts?

If anyone has been considering Titan (titanvest.com) and would like a referral, DM me! We both get a .25% discount off the monthly fees. They just launched their offshore (international) fund but also have large cap and small cap funds. I am up ~43% on my initial investment in the large cap (Flagship). They also offer a Roth IRA :) Happy investing!
Is it ethical to say NO to the company which I already accepted the offer and they already started immigration process. P.S. I got a better offer than other company which has more RSU'S AND better base pay.
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
I would be joining IBM as a project manager. I wanted to move again to technical role in some time. Please share your experiences how easy is it to move. I want to move to Data engineering side. Your response would be appreciated 🙏🙏
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
