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.
In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)

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?
Shortest (Substantive) Hearing? I spent hours preparing a motion and the weekend preparing a reply brief for the judge to come out (well Zoom out), call the case, and say “I’m happy this motion was filed so I can revisit my prior order that I granted by mistake.” Uhhhh, ok. Thanks.
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?
Has anyone successfully done ONA modelling in python or R using outlook/Skype data? How’d you model it and identify outliers? Every example I can find is done by vendors. I want to try it myself.
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?

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

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 😂
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?

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

Stop showing up in all my hotel rooms, Mario Lopez. Sick of your corny lines and never aging face.
I’m thinking about going in house like many attorneys right now. I’ve been practicing 10 years doing commercial real estate with a concentration in hospitality. I don’t want to give up the hospitality practice but I’m not sure I want to make partner at the large firm I’m at. Curious about people’s experience moving in house. Best way to apply (recruiter?) Pay cuts? Work life balance? Benefits? I can’t seem to get noticed at the larger companies who have generic resume dumps. Thanks!
