Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?
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.
Reminder for any members of AIR or production company EPs/HOPs/Bidders, if you wanna join the Green the Bid presentation on zoom tomorrow morning please hit me up privately!
Best virtual happy hour icebreakers? Need ideas!
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
When it's Friday and you fall asleep on the couch watching a WebEx. Not even sorry about it!
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?
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
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
Anyone interested in a virtual networking event via zoom? Could help expand our network during this disruptive time - thoughts?
I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
When you try to cite a tax reg in Skype for Business and send a kissy face and a flower instead...fml.
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.
How do you concentrate on work when personal issues get in the way? My fiancé recently told me that I don’t do anything worth appreciating in the midst of an argument about division of household labor. Although I normally do almost all of the housework and at least half the cooking, I have not done that in the past two weeks as I’ve been prepping for trial. I’m furious of course, but have other things I need to be concentrating on.
I (first year) need the crowds view: “Big deal” partner emails 2 partners (me cc’d) asking for a call. Having had trouble with the conference line, I send around a zoom link. The call starts, the 2 partners and I are on zoom. “big deal” partner calls me, yells that zoom link isn’t working, berates me, opens a conference line, tells me off in front of the other partners (I “wasted their time”). Is his behaviour warranted?
It’s really incredible to me how people who go into tech and have such in depth knowledge of systems can’t figure out how to use Slack 😂
Planning to quarantine w my SO in a cabin for a bit, but it doesn’t have internet and they want to charge us an obscene amount to install it. Does anyone have any portable internet solutions that can handle zoom calls, etc?
Exit options after 6 months in ZS? DAA here. WLB has landed me in hospital twice and my client seems to only care that in my absense, work gets delayed. Also, please recommend any skills one should/can learn on weekends to enhance selection.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! Hoping you all get a much-needed break today and do something for yourself ❤️
A partner submitted my resume to her firm’s recruiting department and I got called in for an interview. I’m researching the interviewers and one is the hiring attorney. Is that a good sign or routine? (I haven’t worked in big law to know.)
Any opinions on Armanino? I have an offer from Armanino and other big 4's. Risk advisory and assurance. What I like about the team at armanino is that its very small and I might get more exposure. Not sure about the culture and progression and pay
Boarding the flight to ORD for the third time. Delayed 4 hours already. The one day when I had an approved early departure time to go home. Cmon Chicago. Help me out here.
Flying internationally for a wedding from the US (to Spain). Delta looks like the starting prices are lowest but I’m definitely not going to be cramped in economy. How is Comfort+ international? Does anyone strongly advise against delta & have recommendations for other airlines? Thanks in advance!
Can someone help with the base salary range for a 6+ years experienced finance professional with FRM and CFA certifications in Big 6 firms in Advisory practice? Also, what should be the expectations for joining bonus during the current times?
Anyone actually keep their PHR active? I got my cert in 2013 and have done nothing since.
Curious as to what the views on canibas (medical & recreational use) are in the finance industry. From what I've seen, it's a stigma compared to alcohol, but maybe it just appears that way?
I am currently a fund accountant and am thinking about jumping ship to a new firm. I’m at a small fund and although the culture and WLB are great, I can see that there is no opening for assistant controller coming any time soon. Is it a bad if I consider looking elsewhere when I’ve only been there for a year? I hear it’s a strong market for candidates so I don’t want to miss out on a potential better opportunity for my career. Greatly appreciate any input.
Just went from 5th to 2nd and would love to know classroom management ideas. Anything to stay away from? Thanks!
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
Out of the big 4, which has the biggest share in m&a transaction services in the SF-bay area?
Any opinions on working at workday? I have a first interview for a role on the corporate side. Anyone have thoughts on working there or know if I’d be able to keep my workday certs up to date even though I wouldn’t be working in a consulting capacity?
What alt crypto do you have high conviction that it will grow exponentially in the next 3-5 years?
Can’t lie doing Monday WFH massively reduces that Sunday evening pre-work anxiety. The knowledge that I can wake up at 8am, have breakfast, shower and put washing on and be at my desk 8.50am
Has account management relinquished the role of brand custodian to planners, and is planning now the most highly valued and trusted client partnership? I’m my opinion (one guy with 35 years experience) a resounding YES.
