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.
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.
People who permanently set their Skype status to "Busy” (regardless of their actual schedule) give me trust issues
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
Has anyone eloped or done a zoom wedding? Any regrets? I wouldn’t mind a small wedding/reception, but I can’t help but think zoom might feel a little lonely/unreal.
How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?
Does EY reimburse the premium fee for webex?
Skype for business.... Why must you suck....
Caption this... (zoom in)
Was on a group call and discussing Team vs zoom. One partner mentioned Zoom security issues and another partner mentioned Zoom being a Chinese company and made a comment that “ that makes sense, you can’t really trust the Chinese” I am Chinese American and somewhat felt offended. Am I being too sensitive?
My manager is a woman, and she is always commenting on how I look in front of everyone - and it just gets so weird. Ex: on Zoom calls with everyone, she’ll call attention to my outfit, or to my extensions, or to my make up when it REALLY ISNT THAT BAD! Plus we Zoom with all other guys so it’s like UGH stop making it weird. And it’s never a straight forward compliment - it’ll be like “Hey arent you cold in that shirt?” *attention is automatically on my shirt”.CONT.
Does anyone think Zoom Calls are actually counter-productive, and wish we could go back to regular conference 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!
Zoom WFH secrets: No one has figured out yet the big black box thing in the background of my home office is where hubby dries and trims his pot plants.
I’m preparing for a zoom hearing tomorrow and I just realized how much I hate the sound of my own voice! Sorry judge!
Thoughts on Zoom? Did a mistake to buy at $460 right after results. And it has been tanking since that day. Cut losses or hold? Thoughts please? Thanks.
Women associates in BigLaw first years through third years: what would you most like to learn from a seasoned woman lawyer: 1. How to be confident in meetings and speak up appropriately in them every single time, 2. How to effectively run a meeting, 3. How to conquer fear of failing and learn to have your own back, or 4. Something else. If I ran a free zoom call for an hour for the first 4 people who were interested, would that help you?
Hey Fishies I accepted an offer from PwC SDC. Can anyone throw some light on what kind of a shift in work culture I'll expect? Currently working in EY India. YoE 6 and tech stack Microsoft based.
How should I go about switching my service line. I feel like the Oracle service line is getting to be unprofitable since a lot of companies are moving towards Cloud. I always find myself on the bench
How easy is it to switch offices (from one city to another) at your firm? Signed an offer pre-covid for an office across the country and now really wishing I could stay in place. (Start date was pushed back so I haven’t moved yet.)

Does anyone give a card/holiday gift to the mailroom workers? My neighborhood has a package theft issue, and carriers don't knock, they just drop packages on the stoop. (continued in comments)
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
I have an under the table internship with a Hedge Fund on my resume - they paid via Venmo. How do I disclose this in a background check for my new firm
I’m planning to leave my firm end of the month. However, I recently found out that I’m gonna be staffed as one of the seniors on a client going forward. My SM is super nice and supportive about me being on this client long-term, but I’m starting to feel bad. Planning to put my 2 weeks notice in soon. It’s gonna be hard to share that with him because there’s been a bit of turnover on the team. Any advice?
I'm through the HR screening and have a senior associate round 1 interview with S& FS coming up and am looking for some pointers. Been at my current job for 3 years so am rusty with the interview process. Any case or behavioral tips? Thanks in advance.
In search of an ACD level AD/designer - kicking off work next week, all remote. Pls DM me if interested!!
Tech consulting (cloud) offers. Which one to choose? Accenture - Cloud Native Application Architect - 180K - 20K signon Insight DI - Architect I - 167K base + 10% bonus - 5K sign on Money & benefit wise acc. looks good but I am concerned about the WLB. Also, I interviewed for Cloud native sr. architect. Recruiter came back with 'great feedback' but is now asking me to apply for application architect. It doesn't make any sense to me. Is that normal? It seems there was a goof up from recruiter
Had a 3rd round interview with PwC (Partner) and they said they would either want to have another interview with a team member or will “move forward with next steps”. This was last week and recruiter hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Manager position. What does this mean? Bad news? Trying to not be disappointed yet 😭
