Does your company provide enterprise zoom licenses? I’m shocked at the number of firms I’ve seen that do not. Microsoft Teams and WebEx are pretty poor substitutes
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
How is the wifi on cruise ships? Need wifi strong enough for Skype calls. Looking specifically at Royal Caribbean cruises.
What’s normal for zoom play dates? My six year old daughter does a few regularly... seems to enjoy them but not sure if we’re going too long, too unstructured, etc.
When you and your manager randomly geek out about VR over Skype instead of finishing up a deliverable - Friday's, am I right? 😎
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.
Anyone been working more than ever and your spouse who's not refuses to pick up some of the slack? I'm easily doing 70+ a week and getting bothered about a coffee cup on my desk is not making me feel better.
Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
How to deal with a spouse that has had it with my relapses. Overall doing great. Used to drink daily to excess for about ten years. Now I have a lapse about once every two years and my spouse hates me and refuses to speak with me. I honestly feel I have come along in leaps and bounds and some slack would be great, I am not perfect but a million miles better than I was. Are they being unfair or am I still a selfish drug addict that needs to give more empathy?
Me on a 6am Zoom meeting
Do any other managers get annoyed when a resource works from home and is unavailable via Lync or Skype through significant periods of the day? How do you handle?
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
Memo to Colleagues. For the love of God, please stop sending me Skype meeting invites. Please use a platform that is stable and not buggy. You’re welcome.
How do I set up Skype for business so that I can ping my friends at other companies that use Skype? Please respond :)
manager is toxic. always forces me to pick up other team's slack. Thinking whether I should quit the job or there is anything that I can do differently to keep me motivated.
Microsoft Teams should have a “cooldown” feature, when someone splits a single sentence into 7 separate messages, they get a message “sorry, you’re doing that too much. please try again in one minute” There’s nothing more annoying than those people who hit the enter key between every three words and all your devices explode with notifications
Data & Analytics bowl happy hour! 🍻 Sat. 16th, 4PM EST / 1PM PST Come network, share war stories, or learn about data roles and degrees! Zoom link to be posted right before the event.
Just got off a zoom call where the CFO pulled out his JUUL and ripped a few. Don’t think he knew he was on webcam
isn't it great when you meet all of your performance objectives and get a strong review but then the company gives you neither a bonus nor a raise
6 hour delay @ CLT Airport - If another frumpy woman in sweats and a puffy neck pillow hits me with her tacky rollerbag...
Thoughts on investing in liquid cash and pulling out loans for MBA? Possibly better ROI in investment portfolio than loan interest?
Filed an amendment for a new client site. Is there a possibility for RFE? Also, what happens if it gets denied - is only the amendment denied maintaining my H1B or is my H1B denied as well?
Planning to move to Deloitte in next couple of months. Can any of you please help me with the parental leave policy? How much is it and can you take it within 6 months or so of joining ?
If ur doing implementation work at MBB, how easy is it to transfer into strategy at MBB?
Finally landed a Product Manager interview. It's taken 30+ applications to get one. Generally, what should I expect? (In terms of questions). This interview is with 2 senior managers. I got passed the initial recruiter screening.
@KPMG Sales Incentive compensation practice? I had a recruiter reach out. I wasn’t even aware @kpmg had this practice. Anyone have any experience or insight into this group? ￼
I have been in consultant at a pretty well known and respected firm for the last 4 months. I am recent college graduate and like my company, but don't love my comp. When do recruiters start trying to poach? how often will firms cave to opposing offers instead of letting their junior associates go? as in, do firms really negotiate salary if I come to them with another offer? Or will they just be pissed off
Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.
Any plaid solutions engineers here or if anyone has interviewed for that position? I have my interview with hiring manager soon. I’d love to know what the nature of that interview will be. TIA! Plaid Inc Plaid
Feel silly reaching out here but would love some perspective. I want to understand how much cash to keep. Currently have $305k in a Marcus account that’s earning nothing. It’s split between emergency and longer term savings. I’ve been thinking about opening a Marcus robo advisor brokerage to put some in to get better returns than the 0.05% HYSA. Any help would be great.
When I moved in-house a year ago as a BigLaw mid-level, I took a 45% pay cut, far more than I was comfortable with (although I was fine with a 20-30% cut). I took the job because it was a great role and I was focused on making the jump in house and developing the skills I wanted, which required me moving away from my firm practice area. Now that my year-end review is coming up, how do I ask my company for a significant pay raise (not just a 2-5% inflation-matching raise)?
I am so lucky. I’m on this flight selected for this exclusive offer to get 60k bonus miles for applying today for the Barclays Aviator Red MasterCard, enough for a round trip to Europe, Group 5 Boardg
How are my commercial Solutions Engineers/Architects/Analyst doing on salary this year? I’m currently looking at $79,000 with no RSU options. Is the grass greener?
Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
Hi all, based on convos and general engagement from a work perspective, I feel the culture at WD is offers a bit more wlb. Any suggestions or recommendations on how to shift from another partner consulting firm to workday? Specifically to continue building skills in Chg Mgmt and in the gov sector. Currently WD hcm certified. Thanks all!
BONUS SEASON! Now that I have your attention, I’m a Big Law baby. I joined a BL firm in March, so I haven’t lived through year-end bonuses before. Is there a predictable timeline for expecting bonus announcements? Do most firms give a set bonus per class year, or is it traditionally more discretionary? I would imagine that giving each associate a discretionary bonus would be too time-intensive, but what do I know. (Also, any inside scoops?) In the words of Cousin Greg, muchly appreciated.
