Ok it’s been a while. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve seen over zoom while WFH.
every time zoom asks me how was my meeting experience, I always have a desire to click bad. Not because of zoom, just because of the meeting itself
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.
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!
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
I need a pep talk. I dislike Work and cannot leave for two months. I’ve started to slack off, disengage, can’t focus..its giving me MORE anxiety instead of less. What should go through my head?
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
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 work at Slack and willing to chat? Looking into some opportunities and would love to learn more about the company culture as well as get a sense of roles/levels. Really appreciate it! Thank you.
Does anyone have suggestions for virtual happy hour games/activities? What has your team been doing, and what has worked best and gotten the most people engaged in participating?
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the success of so many other meeting platforms.
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.
I’ll be doing my first deposition ever via Zoom in a month or two. Any tips? Resources to read? Videos to watch? (I’m a rising second year associate who got hired during the pandemic. I really want to impress my new bosses, so I’m going to put in tons of non-billable time prepping)
I am thinking of switching to United this year . Hardly flown United but I am platinum pro on AA. Will United do a status match for me? Or will I have to start from sliver? How do ppl ask for status
What are your productivity hacks? Feel free to share any productivity/prioritization tips which might benefit us all. :)
I'm such a baby. I say I hate hate PA. Then I chicken out if recruiters call me. I must secretly love this shit. I think I have issues...
Having a chat with the head recruiter from one of my dream agencies this aft. How do you guys prepare for those kinds of conversations?
Any integrated producers looking for a full time job? San Diego based company looking for a integrated producer. Let me know if you’re interested!
Any good ideas for teaching students about coins? Our first graders have been struggling to master lessons about money.
Just had breakfast at TFG DFW and can't help but appreciate the meals at EY learning week from last week in Chicago.
Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.
Got an offer to join another firm consulting firm with a 38% pay raise. I’ve only been at my current firm for over a year now with ~3 years experience. Is it too soon to jump after only one year?
Assuming that people try to get into consulting early in their careers because of the year on year salary growth (partnership is harder to quantify) compared to industry (CONTINUED)
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
What is the average bonus for an associate?
Anyone know of any senior strategy openings? Just got laid off and would greatly appreciate any leads.
I need help with my daily makeup routine/application. I'm looking for a natural smoky look a la Olivia Pope/Kerry Washington. Any recommended tutorials to help me re-learn how to apply? Prefer someone who gets to the point, talks about technique and keeps it simple. Bonus points if there's someone who helps you identify the best looks for your eye shape. Does this unicorn exist?
Anyone have any intel on these Wharton group interviews? How do they usually go, what are they looking for?
Turning down a highly lucrative Amazon offer for an offer with a small sign on bonus and a 20% pay bump but it will offer WLB and I can work remotely forever and it’s work I’m more interested in. First time I am not making prestige the number one priority. Feels scary. Idk why I have so much anxiety around turning down the offer.
How do you calculate your day rate? (Sorry in advance—I know this has been posted before)
