in BCG’s Zoom interview guide they’re suggesting to use Zoom’s whiteboard function now - did or has anyone actually been using this instead of pen/paper?
What are your worst Slack grievances?
Looking to start some advisory consulting for a small Systems Integrator that I have worked previously when with a larger firm previously. Looking for contract templates that I could leverage as a starting point. Legal Zoom or other options. Welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
Y’all be letting these white people see y’all drinking on these virtual happy hour calls?
Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!
How do I deal with a super intense senior associate that is making life difficult? This associate sees no difference between 11 AM and 11 PM, weekend or weekday. They will text me on my personal cell instead of emailing, insist on long zoom calls during which they insist on turning camera on, won’t review anything I send them unless it’s on a zoom call (yes, that is crazy and not the norm at my firm), and is not a good team player (something good? He did it! bad? You did it)! What do I do?
Microsoft Teams is driving me crazy. I feel like I’m always at work. Yesterday I was at a family bbq and I was constantly getting pinged. Every time I get a message notification I feel like I’m about to have a panic attack.
Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?
What’s your teams view on being online (jabber, Skype, lync etc) especially on remote days?
Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
As a staff on the consulting side, does anyone else find it awkward to join a zoom call with the client before the manager/sm joins in?
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
This “always on” slack/teams culture needs to end. Timestamped emails after and before work hours should be penalised as signs of poor time management skills and project management efficiencies. I hope we do like germans and labor laws are made for after work hour messaging.
Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.
Any suggestions for virtual happy hour - scotch, wine, cocktail, mocktail tasting (vendors, logistics, rough pricing etc.)? Location: US, Canada
What is your hourly rate? Since, I’m 95% fee based. I don’t have an hourly rate for consultations or FP reviews. I was recently asked, what my hourly rate is for advising . Didn’t have an answer.
Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!
Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
Has anyone heard of or interacted with Wachsman? See that there is an analyst position open in its Blockchain Strategic Advisory group
Should be receiving my bonus soon. What can I do to lessen the size of Uncle Sam’s share?
Director on project calls in our order for sushi pickup today and starts rattling off the rolls he wants to get. After he's finished Partner on engagement tells him he dialed the wrong number.😂😂😂😗
Defeated. First few years of agency life were fine. In the past year things have been turbulent - one agency was full of management that would openly mock, and in current role, I haven't (cont'd)
KPMG Philly seniors, what year senior are you and is your old/new salary, any VC, and what service line?
Hey guys, recent grad with a bs in bio. Trying to break into sales as an SDR/BDR in a large SaaS company (salesforce, aws, zoom etc) but finding it rather hard even after networking. Got one interview, it went well, but only 40% of SDRs are hitting quota. Open to any advice/insight and help.
For those of you in the Dallas office at EY, can you give some details about the culture there? I'm considering a transfer.
Is there a way to automate money transfers to India in Indian currency ? Currently use zoom and don’t think there is a way
How long do you stay at a company until you request an internal transfer? I was at one b4 for awhile and then left after about 3 years to another (audit to advisory) been here almost 6mos but would like to get into more general consulting or just another advisory line if possible... not that I do not like my current spot, I just have decided it does not aligned with my LT goals... anyone had a similar experience?
Anybody work at Amazon? Are their offers negotiable? My husband got an offer for a senior position in the VA office paying $120k plus $20k bonus plus 13 shares of stock that vest over 4 years. My husband has ~6 years of experience (2 yrs midsize PA plus various industry roles) so the senior title is low but have heard you have to take a step down in title to work at Fortune 25 companies. He likes the offer but not sure if he should negotiate for more because it’s expected?
Do I need to wait for my L1 blanket petition to get approved (1-3 weeks) before I book a visa appointment or is visa appointment part of the approval process? TIA!
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
How badly do you have to perform on a project to get a below average rating (2 at EY). I have really positive reviews all year besides one that is generally positive but has a few negatives.
Best office chair for 200 or less? (On a budget)
