My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?
I gotta say, I'm really tired of getting prepped for my endless zoom meetings, staying on camera, and looking engaged while my clients look bored and text each other. It's just plain rude and I'm over it.
Where should I take a Skype interview midday?
Does anyone remember the “nudge” on MSN that used to shake up the screen? Wish we could do the same with Slack or emails 😂

Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?
If you miss a zoom meeting your bosses are on as well as other attorneys because you overslept where you were supposed to share some updates on cases you are working on as part of the conversation, do you apologize and tell them you missed your alarm OR make something up (white lie) of something that came up that you had to deal with?
How many of you use Skype and not Teams?
How reasonable is it for a client or direct manager to expect you and your team to be available for unscheduled calls during business hours, and be unhappy if someone doesn't answer the phone (or skype/teams/etc) call?
Think I accidentally discovered this morning that I can add external people to Skype IMing by having them join a Skype meeting.
People that are reaching out to strangers via linkedin: how are you conducting your networking sessions nowadays? Is it still primarily a phone conversation? Zoom webcam call? Or are in-person coffee chats coming back?
Most creative way to keep your Skype status from going “away” when you have downtime. Go!
Used this as my Zoom background today. Kept getting strange looks from the Partners but not sure why....
Accepted two jobs and they both have training around the exact same time, on zoom. Even if I push back one job another week, the training times still conflict. I accepted two jobs based upon the income that I need and nothing else being out there. Any suggestions?
If you’ve interviewed via Zoom/WebEx/Teams etc. recently, did you use your personal computer or work computer? My personal laptop is old and the camera is nowhere near the quality of my work laptop. Is it crazy to use my work laptop? Side note - the interview is via Microsoft Teams, which we use in my office for internal communications. I’m comfortable with the using the platform, but have no idea how meeting info is stored.
Does Slack have an office in India?
What’s the best way you relay marketing information to sales? Have mostly relayed info about accounts active on our website/ registering for webinars via email to our sales team, and recently moved those alerts to slack. What works for you?

What are your policies on cameras in Zoom calls? My weekly meetings feel like I'm just monologuing in front of my team.
Would you hold a zoom issue against an applicant during an interview? I had a recruiter fail to send me a password for a meeting so we started 15 minutes late and I’m wondering how that looks internally. My gut says it doesn’t matter but I’ve never worked at a major firm.

Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position. When I tell them my desired compensation they think it is too high.
Had interview w/ BAH on Friday last week and it went great. Interviewees I spoke to said I should hear back either that same day or Tuesday this week. Have heard nothing all week and shot the recruiter an email Wednesday with no response since then. In my applicant portal it still says under review but I have had no correspondence. Am I overthinking this?
Thoughts on KPMG strategy group competing against other Big Four and MBB's..? Is the group growing/winning work?
