I saw a new PCP in a new city and finally talked about how I believe I may have ADHD (I’m 40), particularly based on things I’ve read here. He suggested I talk to a psychologist first, but I’m having the hardest time getting an appt with anyone in the area. Has anyone used Teladoc and have any recs? Alternatively, does anyone have recs of anyone I can to talk to so I can be tested?
TCS background verification will be done by any particular third party?

Realizing why agencies are still struggling to find enough Business Affairs employees. And know several people who this has happened to. One is pay. Salaries have been going up the last year or two. And some agencies aren’t raising their pay as fast as others. But another big factor is employers are trying to find candidates that check every box. So if a candidate has 19 out of 20 required skills or experiences, they aren’t being given offers. Even if that one piece can be easily taught …
I had a thought, almost certainly not original, but I'd like your opinions:

‼️DATING SOMEONE IN COMPETING FIRM‼️Anyone have any experience dating someone that works at a competitor ? I’m a new hire and I’ve been reading the policies and it seems really strict. For ex:
(1) can a person at MasterCard date someone working for a competitor (AmEx) or merchant partner (any company that accepts MasterCard ex: Google) ?
And (2) If they CAN date, does this need to be reported to their leader and HR, etc ? (Most people don’t want their company knowing about their personal life)

As a manager, the only time I’ve asked people to be on camera is for introductions (it’s nice to see a face when you’re meeting new people), small meetings with senior leadership who like cameras on, or when we do performance reviews.
Other than that I don’t care as long as you’re paying attention if it’s a meeting you need to participate in. I don’t like having my camera on either tbh. My team is 50/50 on those who like cameras on and those who never turn them on.
I have it on for most meetings, but if I ever don’t I get heckled. I get Teams fatigue and like SAP said below, I focus better when I’m not on camera
I’ve never been asked in my current job with the exception of introductions.
If I were asked and I weren’t prepared, I would probably just say “not today”.
It depends on the type of call. Introductions/first time meeting someone or a stakeholder call yes. Anything else, no video because it is usually distracting, plus if the meeting is recorded, if you were on video it takes up space on the screen.
It’s impossible to know if anyone is paying attention if their camera is off. I prefer everyone’s camera on.
Honestly if one person has it on, everyone should have it on. Or all off. It’s disrespectful and kind of creeper-like to have your camera off and just watch everyone who is showing face. I wish there were a mechanism that only allows you to see other people if your camera is on. That way it’s a fair playing field.
Depends on who you’re speaking with. If speaking with leadership, customers, external stakeholders, coffee chat, mentors.. I would turn it on. For team meetings, collaboration calls, and meetings with my boss, I’m video off. Easier to focus on the work at hand.
I always put mine on, at least at the beginning, but I think I’m actually more focused on calls when the camera is off and I can pace around in my apartment. Walking around prevents me from browsing or looking at emails whilst on a call.
Senior leadership level, on-camera presence is always expected. My advice: if you’re trying to get into management, always have your camera on. You need to be known and you need to build relationships in order to get into leadership. It’s hard to do both without some form of face-to-face interaction.
Not always required. Depends on the purpose of the meeting and relationships you have. Casual/strong relationships, totally acceptable to be off video. Client/execs/new folks, video is better
My company generally has a “cameras on” policy, so mostly we do. In some very large meetings I’ll still turn it off. Or also if I’m sick, or actively stuffing food in my mouth. My direct manager doesn’t care so much. It comes from the CEO for us.
