Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
moms- coming in as a partner level from outside the firm. what are female@partners wearing on zoom calls? casual? put together but semi casual? full blazer- suit situation? Thx
Anyone else experiencing texting fatigue during the pandemic? I love my friends, but after a full day on zoom calls the last thing I want to do is talk or text about the minutiae of everyday life. I feel like once a week or every couple of days is a happy medium for me. I know my friends mean well and they’re great, but the constant texting is wearing me out! Curious if other people feel this way?
Why does every conversation among New Yorkers turn into a conversation about what neighborhood you live in, then inevitably Bklyn vs. Manhattan, then inevitably how great of a deal X person is getting since COVID. Any tips on other convo topics, games etc for NY office zoom happy hours?
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the strength of so many other meeting platforms.
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
Working on my couch in PJs. Work feels like a big ol’ slumber party with PowerPoint and Zoom. I think I’m adapting quite well to the new normal.
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.
Tbh, I just start vigorously nodding my head on Zoom when I see the partner doing so. Idk what’s happening in these client calls
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
Any ideas to do networking here? Thinking about doing zoom calls if people are up for it

I want to work in a data analytics role but I'm worried that if I switch to another firm they'll just staff me on more IA projects, my background. Should I switch to industry first to get skilled?
24F here. I would love to raise my own children one day, but it just feels immoral to me to bring a new life into a world that I view as failing new generations (climate change, fractured political landscape, income inequality). I’m thinking of adopting but know my SO doesn’t want to. Has anyone else faced this question? Just trying to get the thoughts out there

Interviewing with AWS as a L7 - however the automatic email said Senior Solution Architect (L6) when the Recruiter asked me to interview for Principal Solution Architect (L7) - Managerial. I've been taken for rides before where they over promise and then waste time throughout assessment etc. Passed all the aptitude tests and silly work and email tests pretty much just asking if anyone else have experienced this with AWS - is it a valid concern? Or am I being paranoid?
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
Can someone explain to me what my cost would be if I took a 50k cares act withdrawal from my 401k? It says there is no 10% early withdrawal penalty but the income tax will have to be paid. If I withdraw 50k how much will I actually take home after applicable fees and NYC taxes? I'm trying to figure out if it is worth dipping into my retirement. Do anyone have any experience with this? Thank you.
*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
