All y'all who be testing providence during webex meetings 😂😂😂 https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/28/us/good-morning-america-will-reeve-no-pants-trnd/index.html
How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/
This may not be the right time but can the leader of this bowl set up a zoom meeting where the African immigrant and African American can have an open and honest panel discussion in a respectful way? Apparently there is a lot of differences and misunderstanding between us and this could be a step forward. We are all black and have to come together and have one voice. Let's fix each other instead of fighting each other. Let me know your thoughts.
Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are. I didn’t quite know how to answer fairly since I’m from the Midwest, and that answer can be so regional, not to mention cultural! What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
Do you think differently about the way you look, or are you more aware how your face actually looks, since you’re seeing yourself on zoom so much? And are you like me, so self-conscious that you only look at yourself the whole zoom call?
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.
I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.
When everyone is getting more than they’re full of Zoom meetings, what are some other ways to keep employees engaged, connected, and feeling like they’re part of something important?
Zoom drinking games
Should I just directly Slack someone in Sloan adcomms asking them whether they’ll send admitted and/or enrolled student a gift? I was really looking forward to that book man.

Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
Has anyone either been laid off or just switched from Big4 during covid to corporate? Was it difficult? did you still receive a raise? If so, how much?
On business in Europe. Airline lost my luggage and said to send them receipts for anything I buy for reimbursement. What’s a reasonable amount? I’m already at 500 euros just for essentials for 2 days
As a high performing Tax Senior 2 in financial services, at what % pay raise would you consider switching to industry? I’m asking this cause I don’t even feel comfortable negotiating for this much salary (current + 15%) since there will be so much to learn at the new job. But maybe just impostor syndrome?
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
Max sign on bonus received at D consulting for M level role? Did they negotiate to bring it higher, any suggestions on negotiating?
Really? Y’all didn’t know that it was him? Well, I hope you know. Learn a lesson in democracy, yet?
Anyone know how to find our employment contracts on myKcurve? I want to see how much they will pay me when I'm fired
General question: can you change the culture of a 4,000 personal organization in 3 months? I think you can set up a framework but real cultural change takes time. And Nov/Dec doesn’t seem like the ideal time to do it. I ask because trying to find a way to present this to my boss with proof points.
Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
Another senior associate just emailed the client to tell him that the PDF the client sent him had two pages that were out of order. He asked the client to RESCAN AND RESEND IT. Like he's never used Adobe in his life? I have no words.
What is BCG's brand/identity? I get that McK is the biggest and most prestigious, Bain has the close-knit culture and is very strong in PE. However, for BCG I always get the impression they are great but not quite McK, across most aspects.
Just so much happiness and I need space to gush. My boyfriend is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He makes me feel safe and loved and is absolutely crazy about me. We see each other a couple of times a week and it’s always super fun and peaceful and the sex and emotional connection is perfect. I’m so lucky to have met him in nyc and he tells me he feels lucky too. We’re discussing our future and having 3 kids together and I can’t wait to call him my husband and father of our gorgeous children
Seattle Delta sky club FTW.

“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
For Kellogg why are some people interviewing with adcoms and others are interviewing with students/alumni?
Plot twist in the Bezos story: he’s hiring some truly unsavory people to represent him, per NY Times. (I’m a little obsessed by the story.) Cont’d...
