Alright - workshopping this - let’s see what comes back : working for agency out of NYC, have shoot in LA, pretty important, really dependent on emotion from some “real people” with some product mixed in. ECD and I, naturally want to be there. Agency & holding company has a strong anti travel policy for Covid. Client less so - What’s the solve? Advice? Book through production house? Any other ideas? Trust in the almighty Zoom?

Does anyone here take a 'lazy day'? Where people think you are just working at another location but you are at home with Skype on pretending to be busy?
Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
Please, I am looking for ideas to motivate a virtual class. We want to set up a rewards program. However, we don’t want to reward for what the are supposed to complete. We’re looking for above and beyond. Example; helping a fellow student with technical support. We also thought of homework passes & lunch with a teacher, because we are a virtual school independent study program. We see students for a short amount of time on zoom. It takes a lot of work to set up the videos and lessons.
Question to girls- If I see you on bumble, can I ping you on zoom.. would you mind that? Thoughts? Ps: Some people might say that she can swipe back if she was interested in you, but there could be a possibility that you wouldn’t have seen me on bumble, among all other suggestions I might be down in the list.
Asking the newbie question ... I’ve been at the same agency I got my start in for 2.5 years now. Just got an offer for a heck of a lot more money and the new experience I was looking for. How do I put in my notice? It feels especially strange in ZOOM world... Appreciate any advice on navigating order of operations with 3 different bosses and HR
Boss wants a zoom call to discuss revisions at 6:15pm. It’s been an hour and still they haven’t entered the room. How do I respectfully let them know they’re wasting my time and we just talk about it tomorrow morning?!
Has anyone seen any unique places to find UX portfolios or post jobs other than the usual suspects? Some UX Slack channels were doing well for a while but I definitely don’t see as much traction there. Meetups obviously came and went. Even the portfolio sites like Dribbble and Behance don’t seem that same.
Thoughts about loading up TSLA, APPL, MSFT, SQ at this price point ? Also, is ZOOM already way overpriced ?
Wats your take guys ? I don't like hybrid model as it works for those who are locals of same city where the office is . For me i have to leave my parents, hometown and travel 2000kms to Bangalore for joining office how it is hybrid for me ? I still worry about myself and family health not sure about COVID. Also most of my team sits in Hyderabad few are in Bangalore .office should be optional. Indeed we were able to work in past 2 years right ? Then why force people to office ?
My husband is a watch guy. Found him a Tudor BB GMT today. (Cut me some slack if I didn’t describe that just right. This isn’t my world.) I had no idea this was going to be one of those things where retailers hold back items for those deemed worthy. I eventually got the jeweler to offer me the GMT I thought he’d like but only after being told twice that they 100% did not have one. I’m both proud and mildly annoyed.
Is anyone going else confused and upset agencies are making people go back into the office? Commuting is horrific and wastes time, and honestly I work more efficiently from home without distractions. All for the option to go in, I just think it’s super tone deaf to make people go in again. The world’s changed. Don’t move backwards.
Had a very early call with the client and foreign lawyers this morning. One of the other country lawyers couldn’t use my telecon number, so I had to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting. In pajamas, no makeup. Firm’s Zoom has no option for the organizer to start the meeting with their camera off for some reason. Client and other lawyers are all female, and they all turned their cameras on in solidarity. I love the supportive women I have the pleasure to work with. Any other Zoom WFH war stories?
Want to host a Zoom birthday party for my gf. Would invite her friends as a surprise. What are some games that are well-suited to Zoom? Thinking maybe Jackbox. Would appreciate recs!!

Is it customary to send thank you emails/notes to your account after rolling off a long term engagement? Even if you stay at the same firm/ still run into people from that engagement occasionally?
Dear community: Fair Salary as Manager at Deloitte coming from kpmg with 3 years of experience in the position? Advisory - IT - ES
I’m from a low-income family, the only one who went to college) and already make more @25 (140k) than my blue-collar parents ever did in their life. There is clear resentment, judgment, jealousy from family regards to my life/ income to where I stopped sharing vacation plans/ posting about my adventures. Has anyone else been in this position? How do you manage it?
Making the move to PwC Advisory soon, but also visiting Colorado for the week...do they drug test/do any companies actually care about weed anymore now that it’s legal in so many places?

Is it weird to ask someone above you how they’re doing / is there something going on personally? Manager on my project has been very snippy/short/complaining a lot and it’s kind of impacting my mood/outlook. Sometimes it also makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong or I’m annoying them with project related stuff.
Financial Services folks in large hubs such as NYC - have your ever traveled? Have you ever traveled by air as a part of the project? Have you ever stayed in hotel?
Have an interview with Booz Allen tomorrow, can anyone help me get an idea as to the format of the conversation?
