We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/
In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums. I was called out and chastised by a junior creative for using the word “savages” in an unacceptable manner because the word is slur to non-whites in a zoom meeting. I am a BIPOC creative. Am I the asshole?
Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are. I didn’t quite know how to answer fairly since I’m from the Midwest, and that answer can be so regional, not to mention cultural! What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!
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
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
How do you concentrate on work when personal issues get in the way? My fiancé recently told me that I don’t do anything worth appreciating in the midst of an argument about division of household labor. Although I normally do almost all of the housework and at least half the cooking, I have not done that in the past two weeks as I’ve been prepping for trial. I’m furious of course, but have other things I need to be concentrating on.
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" 😬
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!
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.
If you teach 11th and/12th-graders any subject, PLEASE consider participating. I need 14 more questionnaire participants and 19 more Interview participants. In being transparent, I'm trying to finish during this semester so I don't have to pay for another semester out of pocket. Anonymity is FIERCELY protected, even with the Zoom Interview. I sincerely appreciate all participants. ❤ Questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRKCBSK Zoom Interview: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/D2P6TWD
I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
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)
Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?
So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
Bhand confessions anyone?
What are your home office must haves? I lateraled to a new firm that is giving me a $500 stipend for home office equipment, furniture, supplies, etc. But I can't use the stipend for anything they have already provided me (keyboard, mouse, dock, monitor). I do plan on getting a printer. Any other ideas?
Considering MBB offers here. Background = ~2YOE at tier 2 (think LEK/EYP/S&). Mck role is a Junior Associate position with the highest salary offer, BCG and Bain offering an experienced AC equivalent position (with a potentially faster promotion track to SAC etc). I've heard and seen that McK experienced hires often do worse on average than BCG/Bain esp at junior levels and wanted to get some thoughts on how I should make my decision. Thank you!

Lockdown epiphany- 33F Has anyone realized they have been single and lived alone for so long, that u could probably never live with another person now? Hopes of finding love had already been crushed real good well before covid. Now this..
pwc foreign Global Mobility offices (IAS) have apparently been asked to confirm if they will remain with pwc or be part of a sale of the GLOBAL MOBILITY practice (presumably the US one). Seems odd, to say the least. I feel for my fellow IAS colleagues (I’m sure the partners past and present may get a sweet bonus / retention payment … others 🤔??).
