How is everyone approaching / dealing with new hires / analysts who just don’t want to work?
I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?
I am looking for referral for program manager roles/ payments/ partnerships. I will greatly appreciate it. I have an MBA and 10 years of experience in financial service industry.
thank you in advance!
How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/

Within Salesforce, @Quip, Slack, Tableau Software how often are there leadership changes at the VP or above level? Is this an annual thing? X years after acquisition?
Almost done with second weeks in industry. I absolutely LOVE IT! Ive been making a point to reach out to people from different teams via Slack and arrange a quick meet and greet zoom call. Been introducing myself mostly to the heads of each department, head of marketing, head of sales, head of product development. to get a better idea of what everyone does, and asked sales/product for walkthroughs of the products so that I know exactly what we offer as a company
One silly question
I have just joined Deloitte and wanted to know whether ppl here ping normally on teams or skype?
Anyone else find it strange that Slack and Company has advised their employees that they are shutting the agency down on Friday, yet they still have available positions showing up online.
Mystery Zoom between middle school Autism classes. Hey mod/ severe special needs teachers. I would like to have my class Zoom with another similar class for communication/ socialization. It could be a mystery where our classes are located and the students will need to ask questions to each other like what’s is your weather like? Are you on the east coast or west coast etc. if your interested send me a message. It would kinda be like video pen pals. Thanks everyone.
A group of teachers and I, talk regularly about our highs and lows and our joys and frustrations of teaching. I want to invite more teachers to these chats. Please join me for our first, of hopefully many, official meet ups to discuss SELF CARE. Is Self Care part of your routine? Are you in need of some quick ways to take better care of yourself? Either way, come join the convo!
Register in advance for this meeting:
Our SM project lead is rolling off this week and leaving the firm for another opportunity. Our team is spread across the country - any recommendations for a virtual send-off aside from a Zoom HH?
Post-COVID fishies: How long did it take until you felt back to your normal selves? Are you not quite there yet? It’s been just over a month since I tested positive and although the worst symptoms are gone, I’m so tired all the time. Everything exhausts me: laundry, walks (especially in the cold), all the back-to-back zoom calls… I can sleep for 12 hours, it’s insane. Just hoping to hear from others!
Tips on Zoom interviews? What’s the best way to come across engaged? For cases, do you show your notes/structure, or do you just have to be more articulate and make sure the interviewer is following along with words only?
Heads up. The Bar just emailed out invitations for two free online CLEs in the first week of may. I've been doing these Zoom courses as they are offered and it's going to significantly reduce my end of the year stress.
Do I have my kid go to universal pre-K where he is in class ONE time a week and then Zoom (he is hyper active and Zoom learning is difficult for everyone) or cough up $28,000 for private school where he goes 5 days a week? Anyone else in NYC conflicted on where to send their kids?
Celebrating a zoom birthday tonight with some brown-drink friends. Second-to-last friend to have a COVID birthday. Can’t wait until we can celebrate in person again with some really special bottles to make up for lost time.
Any Slack channel recommendations for Operations, leadership, project/program/product management? If so please share the link!
Is anyone here a high-performing contractor who has had their job responsibilities recently restricted? I have worked as a contractor for the same client for 8+ years and in the past my client manager included me as a team member and asked my inputs (due to expertise) or efforts for most tasks. Now contractor compliance is to the letter, my job is way restricted, I am treated like I am second class. This has trashed my self confidence and I super resent it.
Can anyone share what its like to work at Deloitte in Legal Business Services? Is it Tax or Legal Consulting? Or has anyone heard much about the group?
Wondering what Kirkland litigation hours look like in the NY/DC/Chicago offices. Most of the sweatshop stories I hear about are from the corporate and restructuring groups. KE lit associates - what are you billing? Do you feel like you’re getting a good variety of cases?

Dirty ear cotton swab found in the bathroom of my hotel. I always feel bad complaining about the cleaning because I feel like somebody might lost his job over this. Would you report it and get points?
A headhunter reached out to me about an opportunity and sent my book to the agency and the agency now wants to chat. Just curious how many different books does a headhunter usually shares with the agency?

Anyone else avoid talking about outside interests with work teams? My team freely discusses their evening/weekend plans, but I always speak in very general/vague terms.
Not for lack of plans, but I'd rather not divulge how I spend my time as it isn't common activities (i.e. Golfing, Netflix, time with family, etc)
Starting biz school this fall. Should I make a new email for dealing with recruiting for firms like MBB? I’ve applied to them in the past, and didn’t get in. Not sure if them seeing my past applications will impact my chances in any way. Thoughts?
Do you all rate yourselves higher than you maybe deserve when it comes to self evals? I tend to be highly critical of myself/suffer from imposter syndrome a bit but also realize I can lack motivation/slack off at times. Not sure if I should try to oversell myself a bit or be honest. For reference, my company’s rating scale is out of 5 with 3 being performs jobs well and 4 and 5 exceeding. Going back and forth between 3 and 4.
Has anyone been able to bypass paying a negative PTO balance after they leave? Specifically asking for KPMG
MBB folk, do you really get treated differently on fb when you include your firm versus just your title? And yes, I recognize the irony here.
Is OW a good firm? I don’t hear as much about them in comparison to MBB, Accenture, Deloitte.
How is point B consulting company?
Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.
They asked me about ideas on what to do. I made some shit up. Now they’re doing it. And they’ve involved me. Why do I open my mouth? Why do people ask for my thoughts? Don’t, just don’t.

Most of the time analyst don't work is because of a management issue.
One example would be there is too much ambiguity or too large of an information dump. Instead of one big assignment, try cutting it up into little ones with each having a clear start and finish.
Preferably one that is more straightforward and not nuanced analysis.
Starting consulting is like drinking from a fire hose. Your comfort with ambiguity and nuance comes with experience. Keeping someone focused on a specific task let's them provide value while not being overwhelmed.
I do CCD, so I normally start them on competitor profiles or other raw information pull type assignments. Easy stuff that has a definite start and finish.
Have you tried talking with these analysts first? Maybe there's an underlying issue...
I mean if an analyst has an issue that is making them not want to work during normal 9-5 working hours, I think that’s something that they need to proactively bring up no?
What do you mean by “refuse to work”? If they’re genuinely not doing their work, not delivering what they are supposed to or not taking on more work during reasonable hours, then first try talking to them to see if there’s any reasons behind it and clearly outline your expectations and what happens if they don’t meet them. If on the other hand you mean they’re not working as much as you want them to, ie super long hours, or they’re already burnt out and struggling, then you might want to look at resourcing and how you get them more support
Yes, this is a theme, and the idea that because it’s not what they want to be doing/don’t like the project, they want to roll off. There is so much to learn and now is the perfect time. Even if they don’t think the project is ideal, working diligently, being open to learning something new and being a team player is extremely appreciated and noted.
