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.
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.
For those with kids, how would you feel if someone without kids told you “I chose not to have kids, because of where I want to spend my time. And, my priorities outside of work should carry as much weight as yours (meaning kids)”?
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)
How do you concentrate on work when personal issues get in the way? My fiancé recently told me that I don’t do anything worth appreciating in the midst of an argument about division of household labor. Although I normally do almost all of the housework and at least half the cooking, I have not done that in the past two weeks as I’ve been prepping for trial. I’m furious of course, but have other things I need to be concentrating on.
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.
I hate using Microsoft Teams.
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 hate you Slack
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.
We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
Hi all. To give everyone an update on my best friend, who had recently become my girl friend, we broke up. We were in the middle of our daily Zoom session and midway through, I saw a half-naked man running across the background. I confronted her about it and she did indeed confirm my worst fear that she was cheating. I am sad now.
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
Time to sell Zoom? Or hold long?
Has anyone seen good engagement strategies for teams or slack? Looking for ways to increase engagement in an innovative way.
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)
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
Have interview coming up, guidance on preparing business case, and conducting the analysis on the business case?
What’s the best way to ask for the highest possible sign-on bonus for a senior manager equivalent in consulting role? I know the primary way is to explain how much performance bonus I would be giving up if I left my current gig early. TIA!!! Getting closer :)
Thoughts on Costco sofa sets / sectionals? Not the most stylish, but looking for comfy and durable and strain resistant to survive baby and dog and extended family. Doesn't need to last forever, but 5 years of enjoyable comfy sitting, sleeping and reasonable use is all I expect. Had a trendy gorgeous velvet masterpiece before baby. I miss those days. 😔 Anyway, any advice, fabrics, or other things to consider?
I know people hate these types of posts but could someone give me some perspective on how my M7 MBA chances looks with the following on my resume: Double major in chem and Finance (3.1 gpa) from not-so-popular school, MS from top 25 school, 2 years consulting expirence with ZS. I stink at standardized testing and am doubtful I could score 720+.

Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.

Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
