Showers: Zoom or masked / distanced (and ideally vaxxed!)? Looking at last weekend in Feb or first in March. Will be too cold where we live to hold a shower outside. What are you ladies doing? Any ideas on how to make it fun?

I started sitting on an exercise ball to improve my core and apparently I was subconsciously bouncing up and down during a zoom meeting. Two people pinged me asking what I was doing— I am so embarrassed😩
My team is shifting from Zoom to Horizon Workrooms and I hate it. Why do I have to be social in order to get my coding done?
Just a rant: For f sake, when your coworker stops responding to your Skype, email, LinkedIn and has blocked you from their IG, do not find them on Whatsapp to initiate personal convo/flirt. AAAA 🥵
Regular tips and strategies to keep meeting facilitation fresh? I host a lot of meetings every week with my teams and I’d love a way to keep up on new ways to engage people (mostly over zoom). Any great orgs or circles that share this kind of content?
Having a hard time not feeling anxious/obsessing over “dumb” things said during Zoom calls, particularly more social chatty calls with people in my group. Anyone else ever feel this way? How do you deal with it?
Midnight - and I want to cry. Not sure why. Still have a job and a place to live. I am well and so is my family. Just laughed my a** off with my friends on a Zoom call. It is strangely overwhelming!
Just started a new gig this week and the workload is slow, so I figure we should make the most of this downtime. My teammate and I haven’t worked together on anything yet. We’ve talked on zoom before and have texted and called occasionally. I’m hoping we can become familiar with each other and get that creative back and forth going. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for activities or creative exercises?
Anyone who’s living alone: Any advice you have for dealing with being lonely during all of this? I miss having true face to face convos with people instead of zoom calls, etc.

Used this as my Zoom background today. Kept getting strange looks from the Partners but not sure why....
A friend of mine is dealing with addiction in her family. Does anyone know of good zoom nar anon meetings?
Are Zoom's privacy issues a threat to their growth or market performance? I think they could easily get this out of headlines, most people are too busy worrying about 'rona to push on this
I want to get a rhinoplasty because it’s the one thing that’s always bothered me physically about myself and it’s especially potent now because of seeing my face on zoom all day. Cont in comments
Just saw a guy at the airport on a zoom meeting flossing his teeth while on camera. The world is definitely ending soon!
My boyfriend is in residency and I’m finishing up MBA before going back to consulting so both us are working with tight $ budgets. How do you all split expenses when going out or while on trips tgt?
Came across a dated post on McKinsey Engagement Manager EM pay increases from associate. Keen on hearing from EMs working there. Is this post accurate in that if you were to accelerate within one year your pay is still basically associate level or does your pay actually change with position. Similarly how does bonus change? Even irrespective of promotions does salary materially change for say an A2 vs. A1? https://www.reddit.com/r/consulting/comments/4597qk/em_at_mckinsey_salary/
Please be civil as I’d like this to be a discussion. Even for those who can afford quality mental health services, it’s a tough battle. To those who advocate for better mental health services for the homeless, how can the programs be set up such that it actually makes an impact on both their individual health and community safety?

Are the rumors of the heavy ACN strategy layoffs true? I've heard that new hires can get laid off before they even start...
I am confused about our employee handbook. There is personal time off (PT), which attorneys do not get because they can take as much personal time off, and paid sick leave (PSL), which attorneys get 15 days. If attorneys have unlimited PT, why is it necessary to give a concrete number of PSL days?
Hows GE healthcare for a business analyst? In terms of wb, job security and work environment? This is for reporting analytics
Does anyone know someone who has been fired from their firm for political activism? Please state why and the context.
Hi all, I’m a senior real estate associate. I just went through the lateral process and secured a special counsel (aka of course) position in big law from a mid sized law firm. Signing bonus of $50k. I saw an email from a recruiter recently saying there are firms paying up to $150k in signing bonuses in real estate. I’m guessing that’s true in the corporate and maybe litigation lateral market, but doesn’t seem right for real estate transactional. Curious if anyone can back that $150k number up.
Does anyone have any experience with the relocation clawback provision recently? I took the payout option and have been preparing to move, but just found out I was approved for permanent remote work. I am grateful for the option, but still plan on eventually moving to the Bay area and if given the choice not until after a year or more. For employees who eventually did not end up moving within the year (but were still with Google) did the clawback provision still get exercised?
What are your thoughts on BAML's reputation?
Across all levels at Big4, how does salary compare between Australia and Canada? I've got 3.5 YOE at Deloitte (internal transfer into consulting, expecting ~$80 - $85 at Consultant).

Race a determining factor in covid antiviral/antibody treatment eligibility in NY. How do you feel about this considering the lower vaccination rates of black/Hispanic compared to white? Eligibility: Non-white or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor,as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. http://www.mssnyenews.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/122821_Notification_107774.pdf
I spoke with a recruiter on December 30th and have not heard a peep from her. I’ve been applying for jobs on my own, which is fine, but I thought the purpose of hiring a recruiter was so I didn’t have to do the job search. Is it too early to find a new recruiter or is this normal?
