How are you developing client relationships when in-person networking is out? I'm used to hanging out with my clients frequently, grabbing coffee, stopping by the office, etc. Zoom/Hangouts meetings just feel really awkward and it's difficult switching from business development which was 90% IRL to nearly all online... Especially when I run a 1-person shop. How about y'all?
Today my boss asked me if I was okay, and I just burst into tears. It wasn't even in person either, it was over bloody Slack. Wtf is wrong with me?
Does Slack have an office in India?
Does anyone have any office-friendly Halloween costume recommendations for my team’s virtual happy hour? 🤔🎃👻
Tipsy enough to share embarrassing moments. Work in HC and pinged a query to M on 401(k). Thanks to Skype for converting it to 401😘
Work stress. Kids on zoom stress. It's snowing outside stress. Anyone care to share their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? Lol
Happy (zoom) Passover for everyone celebrating!
Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently? Since they were hired back in May they’ve taken off 1-2 days per week for various reasons (plus 1.5 weeks for vacation)… I understand that things come up, people get sick, etc. but it’s impacting delivery / I never know when they will ping in the morning and say that they won’t be in so I have to have someone else, or me, pick up the slack…
This has been on my mind for a few weeks, and I have to get it off my chest: Via slack, did you PING him? Or did you PANG him? Heard someone say PANG one time and now I’m lost…
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂
Its time to bring out the pataguccis for zoom calls https://www.instagram.com/p/CULW3NKJjGI/?utm_medium=copy_link
My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?
I want to learn about genuine morning routines. Not the 2am every day to lick Himalayan salt of the back of my foam roller to renergise the mind and soul etc etc. What are your morning routines and how does it impact your day. Thank you kindly
They ask: “Sorry, Skype issues, can you repeat the question?” They mean: “I wasn’t paying attention and will now waste everyone’s time. Please recap the last 5 mins and and repeat the question.”
So over the weekend my friends and I did a Zoom drag brunch using Snapchat’s filter plug-in. Today as I was presenting to my team, my contoured nose makeup turned on and I couldn’t turn off.
Where are some resources for preparing for biz ops/strategy at tech? (Blog, slack,website, courses, etc)

Think a toddler would be able to handle an international flight/travel day four weeks after starting potty training? Or is that asking for disaster? Want to use the Oh Crap Potty training method
I hope most of us can agree on the below as fellow Americans: -Any group wanting to cause harm to people or a specific group of people have no place in our country. -Clearly our country is hurting and needs productive dialogue at the community, state, and national level from both sides. -One side is never right. MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN are also rarely right. -We’re in dire need of empathy and care for one another regardless of political views, race, geographic location, gender, etc.

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

How do your companies recognize technical (e.g., STEM) accomplishments? I’ve heard of old school things like fellowships and “Distinguished Engineer” titles. Wondering what other places do now. I’m struggling to see where my path leads if I don’t want to be a people manager and instead focus on becoming a top technical IC instead. Are there clear paths for that anymore?
