I’m pretty buzzed and was on a zoom party, but the host left and ended up ending the meeting cause he had no clue he could do that :/
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?
Me: scrolls through meme website during 1:1 zoom call bc it’s a bad habit Chill coworker laughing at me: You know we can see everything on your screen because of the mirror behind you right Me: 🔥🔥🔥😃🔥🔥🔥
Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!
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!
My firm normally has annual review meetings in August and pay raises take effect on October 1st. On a call held in early September they said the meetings would actually take place at the end of September. Next, there was a zoom call last week in which management did not mention reviews at all until someone asked when they will be, and they said “soon”. Thoughts?
With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?
Have officially deleted all my dating apps. I see I am not the only one who has. Would anyone be interested in a singles happy hour via Zoom at some point? Maybe invite friends? Me: From SF (CA) Female, 5’9, very active and fun, have 2 dogs
11:59 and can’t sleep because I have the WebEx leader has not yet joined the call music stuck in my head. 🤦♂️
I don’t wanna join this virtual happy hour. What should be my excuse given everyone should be available stuck at home?
Prepping for my first Zoom call of the day...
How do you add external contacts on Skype? I know my previous manager was able to do this. Whenever I do it, it just says “Presence Unknown". I’m using the email address of the user.
I’m teaching a quick copywriting 101 to middle school kids via Zoom. I’ve got most of my lesson plan firmed up, but any advice/hacks/whatever you learned in the beginning of your career that you couldn’t do without now?
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!
O.M.G! My co-worker texts me about my boss (annoying person). I responded via Skype and vented, BUT I sent the message to my boss! The name was above my friend's!!

Anyone had success negotiating extra points to have the team stay at a hotel for a long term client engagement (e.g., double points for the team)? Trying to negotiate with a Hyatt right now and would love any tips.
I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
Is networking the only way to get a job? I feel as I’ve been networking and getting sometime called for an interview. Is it worth applying cold?
Are public sector projects highly competitive to get onto at the different MBB firms? Saw a story today saying that the social sector is <5% of revenue, with some consultants saying...

Agile Program Managers, I am looking to dedicate a few hours a day to growth and skill building. Looking for any great book recommendations around this subject. To be more specific, I manage automotive user interface design programs within software engineering groups.
Should I exit to industry or to a defense contractor? In the interview pipeline for both but don’t know which I’d prefer. Work life balance, low stress, and decent pay are important to me.
I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf? I find hitting 2200 is tough even with a good sized work load. Am I just expected to play the game? I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.

Scenario: A Senior Consultant team member and a Manager who just returned from unexpected sick leave… is it the SCs responsibility to immediately bring the Manager up to speed (they asked) or should they feel empowered to review emails they were copied on and then connect with the team if needed? Any thoughts and how would you describe this preference? Thanks!
Soul Searching . . . Any recommendations on courses, programs, books, or methods that will help with career soul-searching?
