See you there!
Six years at B4 now. I don't have the fire in me I used to have for my career. Really wanted to make a partner one day but that aspiration has almost disappeared. I now look for a way to slack, do bare minimum only when it's absolutely necessary and have zero desire to do anything above and beyond. Have been interviewing outside of public for a while without success. How do I get my fire back? I miss that feeling.

What do we think about leadership pressing people to put zoom videos on? Let’s hear your opinions!
I’m on my phone constantly during Zoom meetings. I’m on it now with my phone just out of frame. I always just look like I’m really concentrating. I don’t know how I’m going to go back to in-person meetings. All these meetings are so meaningless.
I’m interviewing at Slack and the recruiter is fantastic. She told me to take some time to think about my comp ask but that I should use my current salary at Meta as a guide but to go higher as staying at the same rate won’t do anything for the gender pay gap. I’m thinking of saying that I would like 15% higher but would also love to get an idea of what the salary range for a L6 or L7 marketer at Slack would be just to see if my expectations are in line.
Thanks in advance!
How is everyone approaching / dealing with new hires / analysts who just don’t want to work?
Leadership, have you noticed a similar theme and are you concerned this is going to lead to more burnout at the manager / above level who need to pick up the slack of analysts who refuse to work?
I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?
I’m tired of remote work! Drop your favorite on-site agencies because if I have one more Zoom meeting I’m going to lose it!
I work with educators part time. Some are admin. We are doing a live zoom Oct 24th @ 8pm EST. This will give your an idea what we do. If you want info inbox me or email email@example.com
Perhaps the correct response to fatigue over endless video meetings would be to rethink meetings and schedule fewer with only needed attendees? Meetings were broken pre-pandemic. Zoom is just putting a face on the problem. We don’t need more phone calls.
What critical thinking activities are you doing with your kids? Montessori over zoom sucks & au pair isn’t exactly Partner-track material. Ideal=critical thinking activity that others can also do.
A male coworker who I’ve only met virtually has sent me Zoom messages commenting on my appearance and asking to meet my pet if he ever visits my city (we aren’t based out of the same city). He also commented that my planned vacation destination sounds romantic and asked if I was going with an SO. cont.
Why do people call or ping you when you have away or in a meeting/presenting status on skype? Do people not look at these before engaging?
If you go to therapy currently, what format is it? All zoom? In person with a mask?? I want to go back to therapy but the idea of it being on zoom isn't appealing to me.
Mechanical keyboards over zoom- yay or nay? I tested it and Zoom will filter out the background noise if I’m not talking. If I am speaking while typing, others can hear clacking
I’m going to start a new job with a new company while 20 weeks pregnant. Any tips about how to break the news to my new employer? All interviews were conducted via Zoom, so nobody really knows that I’m pregnant. The position will be mostly remote, might need occasion onsite meetings (depends, once a month to once a quarter etc). If you have similar experience before, could you please share your story?

Curious is anyone’s firms paid for necessary work from home set up? I’m an associate (paid pennies) and feel a bit salty that I had to buy myself a desk and a chair. I’m working off a tiny laptop and I probably need a second monitor and a mouse, but I’m avoiding it because it’s another expense...
How much is too much reaching out? Some context: I’m on the bench and I spoke to my SM about my availability on a Monday. They say they will find me some work. But I don’t hear from him at all. When do I reach out and how often should I follow up until he actually gives me what I need. The layoffs here at Accenture has me stressing over WBS codes so much.

Can someone discuss the pros and cons of having a gym close to work vs having a gym near home but still would have to commute there, go back home then go to work. To me it seems more convenient to just on the way to work go to the gym, shower, then go into the office.
