All y'all who be testing providence during webex meetings 😂😂😂 https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/28/us/good-morning-america-will-reeve-no-pants-trnd/index.html
On zoom presentations to clients, does everyone on your team you keep the camera on the whole time, or only when speaking/presenters?
Microsoft Teams. Why?
Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
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?
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Is there a way to get a WebEx plugin on Outlook? I can't stand logging into the portal every time I want to schedule a meeting.
Do you ever feel awkward when everyone’s camera is on during a zoom meeting, except yours?
i am irrationally angry/annoyed at my job and it’s affecting my personal life. My bosses expect me to pick up the slack from other coworkers and I am one of the only people on the team who constantly has statutory deadlines year round (both GAAP or IRS driven) so slacking off really isn’t an option. any tips on how to cope? i don’t want this affecting my romantic relationship
I thought I was cute and adorable until I saw myself on zoom every moment of the day. I now know I a so average 😒
Reminder for any members of AIR or production company EPs/HOPs/Bidders, if you wanna join the Green the Bid presentation on zoom tomorrow morning please hit me up privately!
So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.
Getting an offer without ever doing an in-person interview (i.e. Skype only). Is it a thing?
How many calls have you had on Teams/Zoom/Skype/Webex etc? I'm wondering how many hours of my life were spent on "can everyone please go on mute" and "let's take it offline" 😬
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
I have been wanting to switch to advisory from audit. I have spoken up regarding this possible transfer but it doesn’t look like it will happen internally. I don’t want to leave public or B4 (cont)...
Can someone explain how they prioritize IRA after hitting the income limit so it is no longer tax deductible? I believe it becomes lower priority than HSA and 401k. Thanks!
I saw a Harvard? study circa 2013ish that said effectively “be most conservative when you retire and get more aggressive as you age”. But can’t find it now. Anyone seen this and know where to find it?

Just worked a full 10 hours today due to a market research vendor data collection error. So glad I found out Friday afternoon and we have a client check in tomorrow and I was made to redo a week’s worth of analysis and deck building over the weekend. Taking a break, and a drink, for now.

So I got an offer for a Consulting-Manager role for approx $150K. Is that a good deal? It looks ok when I check in Glassdoor and the likes, but just wanted to see what the group here says.
Question on pay: Moved to industry and may have lowballed myself. Currently at 120k (110k + 10k bonus). Is this the norm for ppl 3 yrs out of UG? Already checked Glassdoor but not enough data points

Anyone have a sense (through friends or job hunting) what c-level of a sizeable nonprofit is paid? Wondering comp ranges for that career. Think ceo of org w $50M+ budget and hundreds of employees
Received a job offer that was same title and pay. After hearing more about the position, I felt that it was more senior. Asked if they were open to bringing me on as a senior, and they happily agreed….. except when I got the new offer, it was still the original salary lol. I don’t want to come off as greedy, but this feels odd. I really love the place and the people I’ve met, but this gives me doubts
What do you do when someone on your team is slacking? Our manager is OOO this week and my teammate is online for ~5 hours, doesn’t contribute in daily touch points, and makes excuses for his progress delays on other groups/his bandwidth. This isn’t the first week he has done this No one else seems to care but want to do what’s right, meet deliverables requirements, and showcase leadership skills
Our intern comes in 5 days a week and a lot of the time I have nothing for her to do. Any good long term projects she can do during down time?
