are Skype calls always awkward
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?!
Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.
I am the partner leading our local office lgbt group. What should I be doing to engage more with our people during this time? Zoom once a month only goes so far I think but I have run out of other ideas.
My trainer just kicked my ass over zoom in a weighted cardio workout 🙌🏼💪🏼 I miss my gym but I’m thankful we can still workout
On a call today: “Why didn’t you remind me of this?” Me (in my head): “I sent you an email, ping, Slack’d you, calendar invite, and was about to send fucking Hedwig the owl." Me (actually): ...
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
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!
I can highly recommend this webinar: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_sRhAN0MnSqmblDTCJKHNiQ Heart Disease is the number one killer in the US. Learn how to help yourself.
When you send 2 enumerated, short questions over Slack and your colleague responds with a paragraph answering neither 🥲
Hi guys! I know this has been asked before but can anyone recommend a therapist that they’ve been seeing? Ideal if they’re based in NYC but if not, those of you doing it through Skype,do you think it
If your team is working from home, do you check their Skype and ping them every now and then to make sure they are not leaving their desk? I don’t like it when people are not immediately available.
Imagine, instead of Meet the Parents, a movie called Meet the Partners where an analyst anxiously waits in an introductory zoom call with the project partner only to receive a “pls reschedule” an hour later. What’s your best consulting spin-off of a movie?
You know it's going to be a productive day when you open your laptop and your Skype tag already says busy outside of working hours.
Watching the Golden Globes suffer “WTF is zoom?” and float zoom screens of actors in their homes next to each other....I feel for them. And also realize we have a weirdly useful skill these days.
Recieved an offer from big 4 today, audit manager in normal COL. Was shocked to find the salary is the exact same as what I'm currently at and I never disclosed what I make. Does big 4
How much do MDs at headhunting shops (e.g. CPI, HSP, Amity, etc.) make per placed head? And what does this translate to in terms of total comp at EOY?
Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
At what age do you feel like a grown ass adult? Just hit 30 but mentally I feel like a kid. I’m sure it varies for everyone…
What to expect from EY onsite Interview? Is it a combination of technical, case & behavioral ?
My little calculator feature on my 401k dashboard told me today I need to be saving 3x my current contribution to meet the "double your salary by 35" quota they tout. I just got this salary a year ago and would be in track with my old salary...but can't afford to put that kind of money into it right now to catch up. How does this whole benchmarking thing work if your salary keeps increasing and then you have even more catching up to do? 32 YO and still under $100k in retirement help!
I work in account management/client service at an ad agency and am trying to move into product in tech (management or marketing). Thinking I could do one step at a time (move into tech first or move into product first) but struggling to do either. I have had chats w/ Facebook and a local large tech company but they want app or Saas experience. Any advice? Unfortunately can’t afford to start entry level. I just started grad school part-time too but haven’t had enough classes to help switch.
Anyone else have lots of issues with the quality of video calls on Google hangouts? Zoom and even Teams seem better.
I just spoke to someone at C3.ai about a Delivery Manager position. Is anyone here familiar with their recruiting process and culture/benefits? I got some information from their website but I’d appreciate some specifics.
Survey: How much of a pay cut would you be willing to take to not travel at all, work 40-50 hr weeks M-F (no weekends). Post your current salary and what you would be willing to take. Be honest :)
Shifting back to India soon for personal reasons to work in a startup - any major differences between the work culture in India vs in US that I should be aware of?
I don’t get the whole prestige thing. It seems like everyone is so caught up in it. Even at the most prestigious big 4 firm (Deloitte) people still seem concerned about it on this app.
So many job interviews going on around me in Starbucks this morning. Man I hate that process.
Hi folks! I am new to interviewing. Any tips on how to prepare for an initial phone interview with a recruiter for a position I applied for? What kind of questions should I be expecting? Thanks !
I’m pregnant with my first. About midway through first trimester. I’m unbelievably sick. I haven’t been able to function since week five. I barely eat. Water and a few popsicles a day. If I’m lucky a few pieces of watermelon. I’m perpetually sick, physically unable work, and struggling to care for myself. It was suggested I take short-term disability for the next six weeks to see if this gets better. Anyone done this and know how it works?

Senior agency leaders, honest question: If we didn’t have to hand over so much revenue to our holding companies, would there be fewer layoffs?
I'm currently unassigned the first and second week of January, and then I'm back on my main client. How likely am I to be pulled onto an engagement the first two weeks? I'd rather save my pto
