Wharton Round 1 applicants, did you go through the Team Based Discussion on Zoom? I noticed the email just says “Interviews will be virtual with a second-year Wharton MBA Admissions Fellows”.

Anyone interested in a virtual networking event via zoom? Could help expand our network during this disruptive time - thoughts?
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.
Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭
For those with kids, how would you feel if someone without kids told you “I chose not to have kids, because of where I want to spend my time. And, my priorities outside of work should carry as much weight as yours (meaning kids)”?
Zoom needs to build a shortcut or quicker way to leave a meeting. It’s like a race to not be the last two people stuck awkwardly looking at each other every time
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.
I have a zoom interview with an investment bank this afternoon. Does anyone have any idea what the dress code is? I would assume suit and tie but not sure because it’s on zoom.
In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
I’m excited to share that I received the equivalent of a standing ovation (via Zoom) during this mornings all staff (at RP3 advertising agency) Monday meeting for my Black History Month presentation - “Invisible Shoulders: Celebrating the Contributions and Accomplishments of Blacks in Advertising.” 😬✊🏼
I’m launching a Slack group for in-house counsel to network, share resources, and job opportunities. If you’d like an invite send me a DM!
Any ideas on how to structure a virtual happy hour with a big group, to really get people engaged?
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.
Approximately how much mortgage do you think I can comfortably afford with 120k-150k salary?
So. Much. Diversity.
Frequent travelers: I got 6k miles from AA as automatic compensation for a 6.5 hr delay, JFK>CDG. Genuinely have no idea whether that’s good or if I should ask for more. Thoughts?
I have a pre employment medical screening at Shell. I mentioned on the form that I suffer from depression and am taking SSRI for it. Do you think this could be a valid reason to fail the screening?
Received feedback to ask more technical questions in front of client director. Every time I start to, he cuts me off / talks over me and asks the same question I was asking. Advice?
Hi Fishes, I have recently joined PwC SDC as an Associate 2. Wanted to know that is there any smartphone reimbursement or mobile phone program here. TIA!
My first cross team interaction was with contractors. I felt like ZS is similar to any other IT company keeping the culture in mind. After a few days, I have had a chance to talk with ZSers and I must say you guys are one of the best people I have interacted with in my career. So empathetic and helpful. Cheer guys. How can we inculcate the same behaviour in contractors?
Thinking of dipping my toes into real estate and wanted to see if anyone has any books/ podcasts/ courses or even any tips or advice that you wish you had when you got started? Goal is to diversify my investments past the stock market. Any help is appreciated!

Who will decide hike for an individual and what all the parameters they consider ? I did so well this FY with quite a lot client appreciations but still got VC RATING. Not so happy in terms of transparency.
SM1 @ Big 4, 13+ exp underpaid(159k). If I move to another Big 4 or comparable firm is it realistic to expect 20-25% pay bump?
Math heavy case interviews are so painful and a horrible idea as a first round. Case interviews should test basic logic and thinking and not doing math 😩. Hope everyone is having a better Friday lol.
If I’m doing a PT MBA in fall 2021 would it look bad if I left my current job for another in early spring?
