Where are some resources for preparing for biz ops/strategy at tech? (Blog, slack,website, courses, etc)
Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
Can companies monitor or listen in to the audio of Zoom calls if accounts are company facilitated?
When a really handsome and strong guy participates in a zoom meeting with me, I have this fantasy of imagining myself being dominated by him. I was still able to keep the meeting professional. ;/
Zoom vs Google meet vs Microsoft Teams?

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.
Anyone know how it is working at Slack? Specifically the Denver office. Should I be concerned with their declining stock?
For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
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
Hey Fellow Job Board Fish, Your bowl leader here. I am looking to create a discussion panel / zoom event for this group and would love to hear your input. What topics would you like to discuss? What questions do you have? Who would you like to chat with (I.e. recruiters, creative leaders, etc.)? Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
Random question but can someone detect if you use a local screen recording tool to record a zoom call?
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.”
Thoughts on the future of Zoom and Nio. Currently making a loss on these holdings. Hold/ Sell?
I've an interview scheduled for this week with EY for the role of Consultant - Performance Improvement. For first round I was asked to submit a case study solution. I wanted to know how many rounds of interviews would be there and how the overall process would be like since this would be my first experience for consulting interview. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated 😊
Any PwC kindred spirits out there than can explain what the vacation policy is for that firm?
Google contacted me via LI about a strategy and operations role. I saw on LI that of my 30 business school friends who work at Google, 0 are in S&O. Why do you think this is the case? It could be random chance, but is S&O low paid, or otherwise unattractive for MBA grads for a different reason? 🤔
Hello fellow Freelancers! I’ve just quit my FT job as a senior accountant at a Big 4 accounting firm. My hope is to gain enough freelance work to continue working on my own and enjoy freedoms of being a freelancer. Please send me a message if you are looking for a freelance CPA!
Are there any benefits (e.g. from the government) for first-time homebuyers? I don’t currently own a home and am looking to buy my first rental property. Thank you!
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
I am having an experience of 9+ years into analytics domain with hands on exposure to data science and machine learning. Please can you refer me in your organization for any suitable position. Thanks in advance.
Anyone exit to industry from M&A tax? Looking for examples/ideas since I’ve decided I’m not trying to gun for partner
Deloitte parents: On maternity leave and can’t stop thinking about how underpaid I am. 1. Did anyone resign while on parental leave and what the penalty was for not returning to the farm after your leave? 2. How did you pounds to leave awesome job hunting?
As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay. Many of my peers gained valuable leadership experiences at various clubs or organizations. But I only had a year-long IB internship. Now I am in consulting and that IB experience seems to be more irrelevant. How dare I compete with the other wonderkids?
Five emails from recruiters this week. I want to reply to three of them, but I've only been in public for 11 months (including my internship). 😟
What are the possible career progress options for a guy with BE+MBA(from tier 2) presently with a big4 firm in Advisory for Energy and Power sector? Have no coding or a fancy data analytical experience at all. Can anyone help? Everywhere it seems there are IT opportunities only that require heavy tech stack knowledge.
Anyone work at Slalom Consulting? Curious about others who've gone through interview process. Passed the first round interview and waiting for the next round to be scheduled this week. How many rounds did you go through? Did you have a case interview? Was the offer above/below expectations? Thanks
So who do you think mail in voting benefits the most? Democrats or Republicans? I can convince myself either way I feel like
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
I’m thinking of getting a dog now that I’m home all the time. Before COVID, how were you able to spend time with your pets since you were at work majority of the week?
I'm renting co-working space for a remote job in a building specializing in providing startups with dynamically sized workspace. Our county, city, and the building owners themselves all have mask mandates in place for individuals regardless of vax status. I've reported most of the people on the floor to the building admin for violating the mandates multiple times. How many more until I should escalate to the city?
Hi everyone, I saw a job listing for Zoox (strategy role) and was interested in applying. Does anyone have insight into how the interview process works for them (i.e., what kind of questions could I expect to be asked, how similar are they to consulting interviews, etc.)? It’ll be my first time trying to lateral into the AV space so any tips/insight anyone could provide would be super helpful! Thanks in advance :)
Hey all - I am at a regional firm in the northeast (300 employees) that recently started a search to include permanent remote, full time or part time roles in every facet of our tax group. We honestly are growing quickly (below average turnover) and just need more good people as our client base grows. Good management, very fair compensation, and an actually flexible work environment (we have quite a few part time / reduced hours) and advancement opportunities... Give me a shout!
I have a 2 week vacation ahead in June but want to give notice to go to a competitor. Will they let me take my days or will they just dismiss me?
