Come on... that one is benign and timeless. Does all humor need to be uppity and sophisticated?

The meme is more timeless, also my favorite and is better than the see you next year trope.

Hahahahaha this is the first Christmas break I’m not working in 10 years. I def dropped this line to my coworkers who had the same reaction. 💀

Or when any meeting ends early: “I’ll give everyone back 15 minutes of your day :D ”

If your team is working from home, do you check their Skype and ping them every now and then to make sure they are not leaving their desk? I don’t like it when people are not immediately available.

Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?

Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture. If Deloitte is given 90, PwC might get something between 20-30 is what I feel. All they need is robots working for their tasks. I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC

Hey Everyone - I want to put aside 10K USD for my baby sister to give to her when she heads off to college...she's 1 years old, much much younger than I (23), so can assume a 18-20 year investment maturity period. I felt college specific tax funds were a bit too restrictive - e.g. want her to be able to use the cash as she needs (college or just life), even if it's left unliquidated for additional growth. Any ideas here on potential ways to invest it? Any tax advantaged plans you recommend?

I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?
