Any ideas on how to structure a virtual happy hour with a big group, to really get people engaged?
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?
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!
I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
Which firms are still letting people expense overtime meals, aka WFH hasn’t changed expense-ability?
Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
If you book a period end accrual (D exp, C Accrued), when you reverse the entry the next day. Wouldnt you be booking the expense in the period you got the invoice, not the period the expense occurred?
What are the etiquettes for brainstorming over hangout/zoom with creatives for you? Personally I find it really hard to keep everyone’s energy up.

Accenture Managers & up: does Accenture pay a new phone + plan? Or do they just reimburse the cost of your personal plan. Turning in my one and only phone to D and trying to decide if I need to buy a new one now or figure out a temporary solution until Accenture sends one in about a month when I start.
How do you expense global entry?
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!
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!
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.

How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.

This. I left March 27 a classroom set up, materials and toys out. We were allowed 1 hour to get teaching materials from our room. This. I wanted to fall into the floor and cry.

Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful. Can I enter the US when I have H1B change of employer petition approved but employed with my current company and serving notice period? Which company’s I-797 form do I show immigration? Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
