Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Me with my video off on a 6:30 AM Zoom
On zoom presentations to clients, does everyone on your team you keep the camera on the whole time, or only when speaking/presenters?
Not pregnant yet but curious how pregnancy impacts performance, if at all. If all goes to plan I’ll have my first trimester over busy season. Curious how that goes and if any slack is given if pregnancy symptoms are bad
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!
Getting an offer without ever doing an in-person interview (i.e. Skype only). Is it a thing?
Co-worker just messaged me on Slack - it's her first year with us - CW: "Hey, how does holiday time work? Christmas is a saturday. Do we get the week off?"
Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
I have a zoom acting class in which it is mandatory to keep video on which will be recorded for marketing purposes. I feel uncomfortable being recorded and even more uncomfortable not knowing where it is going to be used. How do I say no to a conservative teacher who will push very hard for me to do it anyway?
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Sometimes when I feel like I'm having just an average day and my boss's skype says out of office I'm scared she has some kind of sixth sense about it and is on her way to come fire me. Anyone else?
Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.
Hi, everyone. I searched and didn’t see a relevant post. Is it best practice to have your video on during an entire 5-hour CLE on Zoom? Very much hoping not- if not, is there like a % that I should have it on?

Was upset with raise. Just got a text from mom. Dad is in the hospital. Called. She says he's fine. Can't believe I was bummed about my raise. As if slightly more money matters.
Favorite video game(s) when you were a child? I’ll go first: Ratchet and clank deadlock and Pokémon (from ruby red to heart gold)
Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)
Have been with big D for 2 years. Got an offer to a company I hold of high value for an 'internship' with potential to full time. Really on the fence. Anyone done something similar before?
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" 😬
Anyone looked at getting pregnant in a non-traditional way- How did you find a sperm bank you liked or have a convo with someone you know to be a donor?
