I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums. I was called out and chastised by a junior creative for using the word “savages” in an unacceptable manner because the word is slur to non-whites in a zoom meeting. I am a BIPOC creative. Am I the asshole?
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?

How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
Today is my 40th birthday and I'm doing it big this year. Took the day off to relax and catch up on reading, cooking and drawing. 😃 No emails, no slack, no meetings.

Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
When it's Friday and you fall asleep on the couch watching a WebEx. Not even sorry about it!
Zoom needs to build a shortcut or quicker way to leave a meeting. It’s like a race to not be the last two people stuck awkwardly looking at each other every time

What's a good name for a Slack channel where we share upcoming work? Anyone got one of these at their company and if so, what so you call it to get people to participate?
So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe

How important is your starting Salary coming out of College? I just got an offer to work in Audit at a big 4. I know there’s a lot of other possible opportunities to pursue that pay more. Should I pursue the higher salary opportunities or focus on the good experience I’d get from audit/big 4
