Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
People that are reaching out to strangers via linkedin: how are you conducting your networking sessions nowadays? Is it still primarily a phone conversation? Zoom webcam call? Or are in-person coffee chats coming back?
I swear one of my clients just stares at their Skype list of contacts waiting for me to get online in the AM so they can ping me.
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?
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
If you’re going to shout “shut the fuck up” to your staff during a conference call make sure your skype is on mute first. Amateur hour out here.
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
When it's Friday and you fall asleep on the couch watching a WebEx. Not even sorry about it!
I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
Is there a way where you can have a zoom lesson while doing an interactive pear deck? Is there a way to do a poll?
Hot take - with zoom, there will never be a snow day again, it will be a Zoom day. I loved snow days growing up - better for kids though... more learning
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?
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.
This article points out that most companies are forcing their employees into the office just to be on Zoom all day. This is why I haven’t gone back in yet. Thoughts? https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2021/09/27/return-to-work-in-person-hybrid/
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!

Which is better when it comes to MBB and healthcare technology / product companies (like Amazon) recruiting? Duke or Ross? Also any other consider in this bucket?
Anyone have insight on Salesforce sales strategy and ops interview at the analyst level? Would appreciate any tips/advice. I’m on the hiring manager round.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Pulled an all nighter for the hell of it... has anyone ever done this? How did it affect your client work? Were you okay the next day?
What’s the code to pay my phone bill on my Amex?
What alt crypto do you have high conviction that it will grow exponentially in the next 3-5 years?
Out of curiosity, how recession proof are these adtech companies? Ads are key for any business to build a client base. That said, if there were to be a market correction, what could we expect to see in a pullback? MGNI, PERI, TTD, etc.
We know all the married people on here gettin’ laid because WFH... or at least they were before someone got on someone’s last nerve. Shout out to the singles who were mid drought pre quarantine...
Interviewing for a role at Deloitte Strategy & Ops Business Insights UK. Got a 4 hour long round 2 (video interview) with case study, presentation type rounds. What type of cases can I expect ?
When does everyone think hiring freezes for consulting and non consulting companies will be lifted by? My guess is summer (after July 4) but curious to see what everyone here thinks
Any insight into Uber’s, Sales Strategy & Ops role interview? What happens in the case presentation etc.? TIA!
Boutique consulting firm vs Big 4, thinking of making the switch to get more structured support and learning... any thoughts? Attrition is rlly high at my firm and project deadlines have been delayed due to resource issues
My spouse’s I94 expires this week. We have filed for her visa extension in April’21. Does she have to leave the country or are we good?
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.
All else equal, what’s better for MBA story and application: M&A execution consulting or pure strategy consulting?
