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.
Do you call people via Skype/Teams as you would on your phone (no warning) or do you ping/chat first to ask if they are available to call?
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
Is there a law I’m not aware of that mandates that every spot about a Zoom call, if you must create one, has to include a tangential bit about being on mute?
What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
I want to demo a mobile app via a Zoom conference call. Any suggestions for a mirroring app that I can use to do that?
Does anyone have any service or app recommendation for note taking and/or task management? Ideally that plays well with the likes of Trello, Invision, Google Drive or Slack? Thanks a lot!
manager is toxic. always forces me to pick up other team's slack. Thinking whether I should quit the job or there is anything that I can do differently to keep me motivated.
Can I join a Zoom depo midstream?
I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes. I feel uncomfortable being recorded and even more uncomfortable not knowing where it is going to be used. How do I say no to a conservative teacher who will push very hard for me to do it anyway?
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!
Why does the Skype for business app suck so much?
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
Is there a skype status for “Don’t talk to me"
My 2nd grader & 24 of his classmates behave and communicate better on their daily zoom call.
I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!
Post-MBA people in this bowl - for those of you who went to a top 20 program, did you use an admissions consultant? If so, which consultancy? Value add?

how long after an interview to follow up with recruiter about next steps/timeline (assuming your interviewer wasn’t informed about next steps)?
I'm about to resign from my toxic firm for a legal tech job. I'm going to take a break from litigation, but I want to come back. I'm scared of leaving one toxic firm for another. How do you figure out if a firm has a safe environment quickly? I knew within 3 months that my current firm was toxic, but it took me a year to get out. I don't want to do that again. (Help!)
I’ve had 9 interviews with Goldman Sachs. Has anyone experienced this? How many interviews do they usually have?

Hello fishes. Currently I am working at PwC in an ERP project. I want it get a release from this project due to numerous reasons. What is the way to process with this?
I’m in audit looking to be promoted to senior in July. Wondering if there’s any reason to stay at my firm for that promotion if my goal is to get away from auditing. Thinking I might end up in advisory or even pivot farther away from accounting in general. Does having that senior title on my resume matter?
Any thoughts on praying in the office? I’m in the London office and because of some confident bothers, we were able to use conference rooms to pray. Now in my new firm, I’m the only Muslim and so when I do go in, find it hard to find a place. I don’t want to announce it and make a big deal, just want to pray quietly, otherwise I’d have to save my salah for home. WFH has changed this in such a good way but wanted to see if anyone has similar experience or tips?
Trying Copilot, and so far kind of loving it! Only in first week of two week trial but this may be what I needed. Personal 1:1 remote trainer that programs all of my workouts based on my needs!
For those who have made/making the move from FDD over to FP&A, how do you address the lack of financial modeling skills in interviewing? Seems like a big gap when at Manager or above level when that’s one of the biggest parts of the FP&A function.
Fitting into bro culture is a learned and valuable skill. It sucks, but it feels like it’s necessary to move forward in this industry.
