How accurate is this person's experience at McKinsey? Sounds absolutely brutal! https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/09/my-bosses-at-mckinsey-made-us-get-on-2-a-m-zoom-calls/
Zoom needs to build a shortcut or quicker way to leave a meeting. It’s like a race to not be the last two people stuck awkwardly looking at each other every time
How - literally how - do I ask people to respect home/ work boundaries without coming off difficult? I feel burnt out from zooms, the noise from Slack and then the f**king SMSs that arrive on my personal cellphone. It’s like being watched 24/7. At the beginning we had an idealistic ‘no meetings 1-2pm’ block in everyone’s calendar but it lasted about 2 weeks. Also I actually resent being contacted constantly on my personal phone when I don’t have a work one.
When everyone is getting more than they’re full of Zoom meetings, what are some other ways to keep employees engaged, connected, and feeling like they’re part of something important?
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
What are the etiquettes for brainstorming over hangout/zoom with creatives for you? Personally I find it really hard to keep everyone’s energy up.

I got a not good observation from my principal last May teaching on Zoom. I was beside myself at what he said about my teaching and thought it would pass. I am still so frustrated that for the first time the observation he gave me is making me not want to teach or come in to school. I can imagine I'm not teaching my best because of my distaste for my principal's senselessness which hurts the kids.
Want to join a book club where we read classic books and discuss via zoom or chat. Didn’t get to put myself through college, so missed out on this sort of thing - but absolutely loved doing this in high school! I feel like it would be enjoyable to get through the hard reads together. Any leads?
What’s everyone’s favorite zoom background?
In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums. I was called out and chastised by a junior creative for using the word “savages” in an unacceptable manner because the word is slur to non-whites in a zoom meeting. I am a BIPOC creative. Am I the asshole?
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
Do you think differently about the way you look, or are you more aware how your face actually looks, since you’re seeing yourself on zoom so much? And are you like me, so self-conscious that you only look at yourself the whole zoom call?
When you try to cite a tax reg in Skype for Business and send a kissy face and a flower instead...fml.
In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)
