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.
Is it normal that my team mate who sits 2 seats away from me prefers to use Slack to communicate for most work related subject instead of speaking in person? I’m kinda new to the agency.
Can anyone provide insight into customer success at Slack? I see a roles that might be a good fit but don’t want to just be a customer service rep.
Let's see if anyone can guess how I feel about Monday morning and another week of endless Zoom meetings.
Parents - my company is thinking of hosting an optional, free biscuit making class over zoom in the evening for anyone who wants to participate and/or bring their kids. What time is best? 6:30? 7? Not sure when bedtime is for elementary/middle schoolers these days.
Does Slack have an office in India?
Strangest place you've ran a webex. Go!
These Skype issues this week are terrible!!
Hair idea for guys who can’t get to the barber! You can wear your hair confidently in ZOOM meetings with this look.
Why do some people always keep “Away” as their status on Skype?! I don’t get it, sometimes people actually need to know if they can ping you
What is your favorite way to effortlessly stay up to date on platform and industry changes? Fav newsletters to get in your inbox, Facebook group, slack group, etc?
I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
In addition to being a special education teacher, I am also a reiki master. I will be hosting a FREE back to school reiki circle on Monday 9/7 at 7pm EST. Let me know if you’re interested in joining, it will be on Zoom!
In the times of Zoom therapy how do you deal with being physically in a different state from your therapist where they are not licensed to treat you? Is it ok to lie by omission? I feel like they would never know and I’d hate to stop seeing my therapist because of this.
What’s everyone’s favorite zoom background?
Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
Has your admin ever sent your lesson plans back to redo? Normally, he doesn't look at them so I stopped being so detailed. I feel like I'm being targeted.
I’ve been trying to leave as a senior but can’t find a chill company where I can work normal 9-6 hours and make a decent salary. Looking to work in FP&A or accounting. Currently make $100K and want to move to leave. Where do I go without taking a pay cut?
What is the maternity/paternity leave policy at your firm (in the US)? EY is 16 weeks for both. What is the ideal amount of time for leave in your opinion?
Anyone at Deloitte have some insight on the Strategic Communications and Change Management positions for analyst and consultant? What to expect in the final interview? Base salary + bonus? WLB? Asking for a relative! Deloitte
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 :)
Anyone know an approximate salary range for director and managing directors at kpmg digital lighthouse? Cloud architecture specialty in NYC.
Yeah….. I should probably take some PTO. Also, I noticed this pay period, my PTO stopped at 96 hours exactly, so it shorted me a few hours, does anyone know if BDO says 96 is the most, you can’t bank anymore after that? I don’t see anything in the handbook.

Ladies - any recommendations for a place to get laser hair removal in NYC? Thinking about getting it done for my lower legs since I'm sick of shaving constantly and nothing seems to work.
All of my h1b troopers, can we start a thread sharing what you would miss the most and the least if you need to go back to your home country for good?
Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?
Have been through a few rounds of interviews and feel like they have all been great. Last two have been with leaders of various practices and that was supposed to be the end. Now have been asked if I’ll do one more interview with someone in a different specialized practice, and if im interested in that space. Should I take this as a good sign I’ll be offered and they’re trying to place me, or am I being placed on hold while they run down a list of those they liked more and awaiting accepts?
What's the value of sticking it out to MD besides the money? How much prestige is really carried in the position?
I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
Hi Ladies! New manager here... I recently asked my team to turn on their video whenever the client turns it on. I felt it's a basic etiquette to do so but few of my team members didn't turn it on even after my request. How can I manage a team who doesn't listen to me? 😞
