Does anyone here take a 'lazy day'? Where people think you are just working at another location but you are at home with Skype on pretending to be busy?
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.
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.
Anyone feel almost shamed or snarky comments are said when you do your job or don’t slack like some of the coworkers? I don’t want to be rude but also want to let them know it’s not cool.
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the strength of so many other meeting platforms.
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.
So you are interested in collaborating? I have been teaching Avid since 2006-ish. Any suggestions on how to transition to distance learning on Microsoft Teams? How does that look in Avid?
Is there an option or add-in for Outlook that automatically reduces the font or zoom for emails received from specific people that are typing large?
I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.
Swung open the door to the living room singing and dancing to the book of mormon. my wife turns around and whisper yells "I'M ON ZOOM!" Fail.
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
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
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): ...
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.
Does anyone have a virtual happy hour activity that was actually fun, other than drinking some expensed booze.
Have to rework my book. How many of you would caught a junior copywriter candidate some slack on art direction?
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
How do you remove a message you sent on Skype? I thought it was right click remove message but I don’t see that option when I right click
Heartwarming diversity on display at the DNC! From Republicans to Democrats, representation from all races - even Northern Marinara Islands got a shout out. Go Joe & Kamala!
How do you all handle stress at work? I’m on a though project and feeling sort of hung out to figure it all myself. My stomach is in knots and I’m waking up in the middle of the night thinking about the case.
I have an interview with Deloitte Strategy & Analytics for a Senior Consultant role. What can I expect in the case? Is it a regular case? Or something new? The email I got is throwing me off. Help, thanks :)
Wild that conservatives think they're on the right side of history after supporting officials who let tens of thousands die needlessly and will now try to take away people's healthcare.
How tough is it to lateral to a larger bank, or to exit into corp dev/strategy at a "large cap" company at the VP-ish level? I'm currently in IB at a smaller MM bank, but kind of trapped until I get my green card which obviously will be a few years. I don't hate my bank/team but I do feel limited by the bank (since obviously reputation/size dictates the deals the bank can win)
“This global pandemic is exactly what our industry needed.” Okay...now repeat this exact phrase to the hundreds already laid off and all the ones to come. 🤯 https://www.campaignlive.com/article/took-global-pandemic-draw-line-sand-adland-sorely-needed/1678340
Are there any married couples working at two different big 4 firms? How did you make sure your finances were compliant with both?
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Potentially have an offer from a local tech startup. I’m 24, currently make ~$95K base and ~$50K, with an additional ~$20K in profit sharing (so total comp around $160-170K). Offer would likely (cont)
I made limited EQ partner in 2019 . This week I was told I’m getting moved to counsel effective Jan 1. My hours were negatively impacted in 2019 by an ill parent (only child) and in 2020 multiple clients said pencils down for half the year (& additional family illness & a death), + kids. I know nothing about the counsel role. What terms/arrangements have people negotiated? I don’t know what negotiation ability I’ll have, but wanted to be better informed.
