I hate using Microsoft Teams.
Thoughts on VR headsets for zoom meetings? We could all be truly together virtually!! 🥰😍🥳
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!
I made a Slack for junior creatives and ad students to to collab in during the PANDEMIC let’s make some cool shit! https://join.slack.com/t/quarantinecollab/shared_invite/zt-cqxmdiyr-iMkZ7AX~qy~8AgWTLfwRbw

I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe
I’m excited to share that I received the equivalent of a standing ovation (via Zoom) during this mornings all staff (at RP3 advertising agency) Monday meeting for my Black History Month presentation - “Invisible Shoulders: Celebrating the Contributions and Accomplishments of Blacks in Advertising.” 😬✊🏼
Anyone interested in a virtual networking event via zoom? Could help expand our network during this disruptive time - thoughts?
I haven’t seen this out there, but it came up in my college class; don’t record your Zoom sessions if there’s any interaction with students. It violates FERPA.
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
The most haunting things this Halloween are the Microsoft Teams pings I hear in my sleep.

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.

Introverts with admits to B schools - how are you all planning on surviving the networking events? I don’t enjoy large groups of people (>5) and am already tired of the incessant zoom calls and meetups 😭

What are big firms like MBB / Big 4 doing to keep employees (especially junior level) engaged and motivated during COVID? In your opinion, is it working?

Weather was so nice in ATX this morning. I just sat outside and quietly wept because of my work stress and general existential dread. I felt better after.
