See you there!
Anyone else getting conflicting messages on whether it is permissible to use Zoom with federal agencies? Some are insisting on using it (MSPB), some are saying absolutely can't use it (DHS, USDA).
*Judge after instructing several attorneys suit and tie are required even for zoom hearings*
“Wow is there a shortage of ties going on or what”
Do brainstorm sessions over zoom work for your team? If not, what’s your preferred discussion method?
My group hired a client's son a few months ago and he is currently staffed on my project. I am a new Manager, he is an analyst.
He frequently shows up at the end of the day and says that he has not completed the work that was assigned to him because he wasn't in the mood for it today and would deal with it once he's gotten into the "flow". I have escalated this previously and the director was more concerned about making him feel bad rather the fact that I keep having to pick up his slack.
The week before XMAS and it feels like the full moon in the ER. My husband is having an existential crisis, my best friend is crying at work, my mentees are in tears over Zoom calls, partners are quitting - the mental health challenges seem to be on overdrive right now. I’m just trying to stay sane enough to help manage this circus; my self-care today is working on my couch with the video turned OFF, eating as much chocolate as I want and scheduling a “meeting” to get some cardio this afternoon.
Just offered a marketing position with a startup based in Boston. It was advertised as a full time remote position. They offered me $10k below the minimum range I gave them during the interview because I am relocating from BOS to CLT, NC in September & they took into account “localization.” I have 7+ years of experience. The offer was made over zoom & I asked for an extra $5k to meet in the middle & will get offer tomorrow. It’s fully remote so did I mess up by not asking for my minimum?
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
If you go to therapy currently, what format is it? All zoom? In person with a mask?? I want to go back to therapy but the idea of it being on zoom isn't appealing to me.
Two R1 Zoom interviews - one went well and the other not so well. Think it was a good cop bad cop situation. Do they factor in both interviews 50-50?
I love how even Slack’s servers were like, “damn man, I really don’t want to go to work this morning.”
Best technical solutions for ghosting junior colleagues into Zoom or Teams meetings where there are optics issues about consultant headcount? We used to put them in a conference room alongside us in 2019, but we are mostly remote now.
MBB fish, might be a dumb question but did any of you take your final round zoom from a hotel room ? Moving around a bit so this might be the case for me , but feel like so much could go wrong (wifi, not having a comfortable set up, etc ) TIA! Hope y’all are enjoying the weekend :)
The Johnson interview is via Skype. Does anyone know how it works? I booked my interview online and provided my Skype ID but there is no link shared or anything. Do I need to download Skype on my laptop and wait for the interviewer to call me? Or will there be a link to be shared with me close to the interview date?
Morning guys. I already posted in the “job referral” bowl and got no where so I figured I’d reach out in this group. Anyone in here work at Meta or Zoom wanting to give a job referral? I’m a 10 year attorney currently working in tech. Also, side note there is a job referral bowl in case anyone is looking for a new position as well.
Some of my clients have had a blurred zoom background. It’s definitely not static; the background blur moves as their cameras move around too. Anyone know what this is?!
What are people wearing to zoom interviews these days? I have a couple with PE firms coming up and I’m not sure if I should go with the athleisure look or full on suit and tie?

Hi All, I’m thinking about getting certified in change management but not sure if I should go the Prosci route or CCMP route. CCMP is a lot cheaper compared to Prosci but would it measure up just the same?

Help! Returning to work after taking the full Mat Leave (16 weeks plus a few of vaca right after). So nervous to start traveling again away weekly away from my kids. The firm now wants us in the office more than pre-COVID as well. What can I reasonably ask for to make this easier on me without tanking my career? Seems like I’m already starting this FY “behind” since I lost client time while I was out. Also none of my work clothes fit!! (And the few that do are absolutely not pump friendly).

I am afraid of the cancellation for the offer.
I got offered by the next firm and I am now in the middle of gardening leave.
While my trip to other countries, I may have experienced drug-like shisha or hookah(actually I had no idea what there was inside)where it is legally permitted despite a coming drug test after this gardening leave.
Does anyone have such experiences?
Otherwise what do you think I should do now?

Hi All! Are there any other VPs in Raleigh on here! If you don’t mind sharing, what’s your base salary? When I was negotiating, they wouldn’t come up for me.
Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.
I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.
While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.
Any suggestions as to what I should start with?

If you interviewed with a company that in turn offered you a significantly higher salary than what you’re making now but with a lower title, would you take it? I’m tempted by the money but I don’t want it to look like I couldn’t do my job and had to take a step backward as a result.
