At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
Skype for business.... Why must you suck....
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
Does anyone know which agency made the latest TD bank ad? (A bunch of TD staff chatting on a zoom call together brainstorming )
I want to personally thank all the men who use emojis in work emails / skype meeting chat boxes. I now know who not to worry about.
My team is trying to find a better way to track talent. We have an ATS we like for everything but tracking the talent pipeline. Anyone have good one off tools they use for talent pipeline tracking? Even better if it integrates with Microsoft Teams.
I am the partner leading our local office lgbt group. What should I be doing to engage more with our people during this time? Zoom once a month only goes so far I think but I have run out of other ideas.
Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
Planning a work Happy Hour on zoom - anyone have any easy/free ideas to entertain a group of ~20?
Caption this... (zoom in)
Started out hating Zoom depos. Kind of like them now. In hour two of a co-defendant’s examination, which is entirely irrelevant to my client, and I’ve clipped my nails, stretched fully, planned a hike for the weekend, ordered my home goods off Amazon, and it’s all billable time because I’m stuck on this thing.
Was on a group call and discussing Team vs zoom. One partner mentioned Zoom security issues and another partner mentioned Zoom being a Chinese company and made a comment that “ that makes sense, you can’t really trust the Chinese” I am Chinese American and somewhat felt offended. Am I being too sensitive?
Does anyone have advice about helping your kids through video conferencing anxiety? My 6 year old normally loves taking, happily volunteers to speak at school assemblies is completely freaked out by classroom zoom discussions. Says that “talking on a computer is weird” and he’s anxious to the point of tears.
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
Muslim Consultants Trivia Zoom Call? Who’s in?
Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10% Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly? Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
my wife and I will make around 350k HHI next year. should we do a mega backdoor Roth and Roth 401k or traditional trad IRA/401k? we live in Seattle, so no state income tax. HHI will likely rise for..
What’s the advantage for roth 401k vs. roth ira? And is having all types of IRA and 401ks the best to save up investment?
If you are called overqualified while interviewing for a position, does this immediately mean that you won't be considered at all? Is this a bad thing?
What’s an S1 Salary in valuation in atlanta?
Can someone please share how easy or difficult it is to get a job with EAD on an H4 visa? Also how difficult is getting the EAD itself? Apologies if it's a naive question. I'm not too familiar with the US visa scene. Asking genuinely for a friend 😀
Just got dinged, without an interview. Can I email admissions to ask for feedback? Do people normally do that?
Anyone hiring mid level Art Directors in NY?
Anyone else feel/felt out of breathe just talking a lot during a Zoom meeting? Third trimester and trying to have "Executive Presence" is so hard when you are bloated, burpy and winded during pregnancy.
Deloitte peeps: is there a typical time of the year when people get laid off (e.g., after year-end, before year-end, any time on the beach)?

If I took a part time MBA program, can I still campus recruit for a summer role at MBB, Big 4, FAANG, etc?
I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations. I've received a very good job offer by another Big 4 in the same sector and service but with better career growth opportunities. I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?
Best travel hack, go...
How does remote editing work? I haven’t ever made a TVC before so was curious about the process when doing it remotely.
I worked at PwC and just got laid off for seemingly no reason. Does anyone have any leads for data analytics/data strategy/data engineering type roles? I’m happy so share my performance feedback as well. It’s pretty solid.
