I made a Slack for junior creatives and ad students to to collab in during the PANDEMIC let’s make some cool shit! https://join.slack.com/t/quarantinecollab/shared_invite/zt-cqxmdiyr-iMkZ7AX~qy~8AgWTLfwRbw
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!
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 😭
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
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
Interviewing with a small firm. Have met with all 4 partners over zoom. Today I speaking with the associate over the phone. Recruiter says just informational and we both expect I’ll receive an offer. What kinds of questions should I ask the associate at this point?
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
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.” 😬✊🏼
What are the etiquettes for brainstorming over hangout/zoom with creatives for you? Personally I find it really hard to keep everyone’s energy up.
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.
Which of the big 4 have either slack or msft teams? I’m wondering if it is just kpmg that is way behind the times.
Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.
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!
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
Anyone ever done a Skype meeting on a plane?
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" 😬
Does Slack have an office in India?
Isn’t JETS a solid long term play? Granted most airlines are down due to this delta variant and I’m sure it might drop a bit more, but with the way everyone is traveling I don’t see how this doesn’t play out well long term
Two weeks ago I left my mouse at the client site, last week my privacy screen, what will it be this week????
So. Much. Diversity.
2 years at MBB + M7 MBA, currently in Chicago. Looking to move to a lower cost of living geography. Heavily considering exiting into Tech in the Research Triangle Park Area (think Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Morrisville) . Targeting these firms for BizOps/ Sales Strategy roles: Cisco, Lenovo, IBM, Salesforce, Amazon, Microsoft. Non-negotiable is a focus on cloud technologies - either as a provider or an adopter. Any heavyweights I am missing? (Purposely left GCP out). Appreciate the stress test!
For all the PA exit timing questions (senior/manager,etc) from my experience, I don't believe your PA level is most important. Leave for the right role with explicit managerial duties such as (cont)
Could I use a job offer that I don’t want as leverage to get a raise? Or is it not really leverage because I don’t have the intention to actually leave. This is more of a hypothetical question.
How do you repeatedly turn down work for one partner or effectively avoid working with a particular person within your firm? Assuming hours are met and your standing is strong otherwise. One partner at my firm is destroying my mental health and knows few boundaries. I don't want to actively transition from our ongoing matters but sure as hell don't want to take on anything new... How best to do this without burning bridges?
How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
Anyone else annoyed with the darn holiday cards with everyone's picture perfect families? Dont get me wrong, there are some I genuinely like bc I like them. Some just feel like its rubbing it in. Or all in my head :(
Currently in Boston and want to make the jump to New York , does coming from Boston make it harder to make the switch?
did not invest in 401k first half of year. if I put in the required 6 percent per month for each month till.now, will I get the match on the months of Jan to nov? or only the month of nob!?
Strategy & fish is anyone open to a referral? Have multiple strategy manager offers and want to speak with Strategy& before deciding on another firm. Have heard good things.
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?
Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
For the ladies in their 30s or older - how long did it take you to "get pregnant"? I know from anecdotal experiences it can be quite a range. Just curious (as a 35 woman) if I should get started sooner rather than later (instead of waiting for the perfect time).
I used to pay $99 a year for Hootsuite all of the sudden they auto billed me $588 for the same pro plan. They sent me an email stating I was getting a lot of features they had upgraded through the years and had to raise the price. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you find another source to use instead of Hootsuite? Are they fair in pricing?
Daycare moms that nurse, what is your at routine? I want to get up before baby gets up but boobs are super full so taking a shower means so much leaking (sorry TMI!). Also do you feed solids before you leave or just pack it for daycare to feed?
Is it advisable to withdraw from 401K savings? In a financial difficulty & trying to assess options where I don't have to ask friends/family. I'm an international, so tax implications vary.
Looking for feedback on KPMG? Culture, work-life balance, projects, salaries, progression etc
