Ever make sense to switch firms in non-promote years for an almost identical role? If so, under what conditions does it make sense: x% raise, title promotion, culture fit....what's your threshold?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Where are the office Halloween zoom pics???
I'm have a conversation with someone from deloitte next week. Anyone willing to give me insight to the culture?

Hey guys. I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!
To my IT people - can a company track my IMs on Skype? Like....retrieve a IM conversation?
Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!
Damn really can’t afford to slack off today. But having a hard time focusing. Any suggestions ?
What is your avg screen time? I’m using at 7-8 hours each day which seems insane but maybe it’s because I use my phone for all the zoom calls?
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.
Slack is so amazing
As a staff on the consulting side, does anyone else find it awkward to join a zoom call with the client before the manager/sm joins in?

Brutal 2 weeks. Weekend of work. SM micromanaging. Pick up someone's slack and they 🔨 your head. What is wrong with this people?
Why do people come on here and post “Can I get a referral to ABC Company”? Wouldn’t it make more sense to say “I’d like to learn more about company ABC. Is anyone willing to connect”?
I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.

MBB energy practice in Houston: (1) how busy are you (2) how big is the practice (3) what kind of projects do you typically work on (4) are you hiring?
Advise on handling rates negotiations with BIPOC and non-male creators? I always want to accept first bid and get uncomfortable when my bosses push to undercut rates (especially now when money is tight), because there is a whole history of BIPOC and non-male people getting paid less. I’ve tried to push back but struggle to articulate this to them. (For the record, I’m POC female and my bosses are white males, and race/gender convos are already very difficult with them.)
DEI hires don’t address the issue. We know they are powerless positioned designed to give the impression of ‘doing something’ rather than grooming and promoting the diversity under your own roof. There’s a problem when your clients are more progressive and demanding of change than you are, agencies.

Little bit miserable in my current role and wondering if the grass is greener.

Is it true that with amazon work from home jobs, you can’t work from anywhere,..it has to be the state you deemed as your home? I’ve never heard of such a thing, and at Deloitte we can, we just charge our time to the correct state. I was told by an Amazon recruiter that at amazon you can’t do that? Anyone know why this might be?
So here’s the thing. I’m looking for a new gig in NYC, but I don’t want my boss to know I’m looking (who frequents fishbowl). So, I’m going to stay hidden and hope that some of y'all PM me for my book
