Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
Me on a 6am Zoom meeting
Do you call people via Skype/Teams as you would on your phone (no warning) or do you ping/chat first to ask if they are available to call?
Are you sharing your screen on the webex?
What is a fun/dramatic tv show to watch for a zoom date? We already had one date several weeks ago. Preferably something interesting but also something we can talk over. Thanks for the suggestions!
I am a level 3 counselling student. Please note that means their are limitations to my work, there is a supervisor to support me. I was wondering if anyone would like to meet via zoom for a 4-6 week session of 30 minute helping sessions? It's free, and it is confidential. I am a woman, 30, and obviously in advertising.
Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
manager is toxic. always forces me to pick up other team's slack. Thinking whether I should quit the job or there is anything that I can do differently to keep me motivated.

How are you all telling your project leads that you are leaving if you aren’t close? Do you just send an email or ask for a Zoom call? Do you tell them before or after HR?
I like to toggle between fully touched up appearance and not at all on Zoom, just to remind myself…
What made you snicker, chuckle, chortle, giggle or laugh today? Quiet to maniacal, have at it. To get the obvious off the list... paycheck, hours, unlimited time off, budgets, looming deadlines, and pets on zoom/teams meetings.
I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
Do expense amounts get escalated regularly? For everyone? For some reason they escalated a charge of 128 dollars for WebEx which is required for the client . What happens next? #ey
Does your company provide enterprise zoom licenses? I’m shocked at the number of firms I’ve seen that do not. Microsoft Teams and WebEx are pretty poor substitutes

Hi, I'm already holding an offer of 8.5 fixed from Org1. And, after being interviewed by Cognizant, the HR said she can only offer me 7 fixed 20K variable. Seriously? All she's saying is that it's based on my current CTC (3.79 fixed+20K variable = 3.99). Exp: 2 YOE. Technology: Informatica IDQ, SQL, UNIX Please help me here. My expected was 11 LPA based on the offer I'm holding. It's really depressing that the offer I'm being given by CTS is even lower than what I'm having.
Do you think with Delta+ on the way agencies who have mandated RTO will send people home again?

Quick check-in. As you get ready for a new week in the classroom. On a scale of 1-10, how are you feeling?
I accepted a job from a place my friend works. She got me in and I'd be dropping a title level but making the same $ as my previous role. I accept and 1 day later my #1 on the list came through. better title, pay and benefits. The first company is stoked to have me and everyone is nice. I'm sure on the culture. I reached out to company 2 the week before I accepted this offer and they weren't ready, but now they are. They seem great, but so does everyone when you meet them. What do I do?
Currently working as Manager in a small boutique consulting firm, highly focused on handful of healthcare clients. Got about 6 years of experience working for a Blues health plan client in various engagements, mostly IT strategy related- clinical transformations, acquisition of a Medicaid contract etc. as a program manager. I’m looking to switch to strategy in Deloitte, EY etc. Any fishes who can provide a perspective if this is a typical profile?

I'm in the best relationship I've been in. We had a chat about life goals and long term plans. We align on everything except children. He definitely wants them and I am undecided. I had a childhood that makes me terrified of being a mother. To be clear I get on with children, have taught in primary school and volunteered in orphanages. I am very caring and take great care of a dog. I'm just afraid of the role of motherhood and that my needs will disappear. Anyone have advice?
