Zoom drinking games
Did I miss the ”Ask a recruiter” session last week? Or have the wrong link? I opened the Zoom link and nothing for over 15mins?
Damn really can’t afford to slack off today. But having a hard time focusing. Any suggestions ?
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
who’s doing the sfdc and slack integration?
The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
What is the acceptable time frame to follow up with someone who is tardy for a zoom call? What’s the allowed grace period? Five minutes? Ten minutes?
Looking for referrals on affordable, competent TPAs for SoloKs over $250k and traditional unbundled 401ks. Looking for Illinois and SoCal, but if they are good I don't care where they are located, if they can do Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Looking to start some advisory consulting for a small Systems Integrator that I have worked previously when with a larger firm previously. Looking for contract templates that I could leverage as a starting point. Legal Zoom or other options. Welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
Looking for some virtual-meeting best practices to fight Zoom fatigue. Anyone work for an agency (or know of an agency) who’s trying something different with them? Thanks in advance.
What applications does Accenture use? I’m guessing Microsoft Teams, Excel, Pwpt? Or is Zoom also in that?
It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
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.
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
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.
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.
DDB’s estimated salary for Creative Director
My mom decided that tonight she’d confess: 25 yrs ago she told me my 1st choice college did not give us any financial aid and I couldn’t go there (so I went where we had it). She admitted I almost got a free ride but she didn’t want me to go there so she lied. I feel betrayed. Loved my school and have no regrets. Just feel manipulated.
When a question is asked in the classroom:
Had an interview on Friday. Interviewer said that they would get back to me sometime this week with a decision. Haven’t heard back yet. Should I email them or wait?
Can anyone give an update on most recent comp packages for MBB or tier 2 firms? - consultant/senior consultant level. Base, bonus, etc.
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
A flat fee project contract is currently about a month over the expected end date, and it’s still going. Is it reasonable to ask for the remaining balance now vs end of project which was what was agreed upon?
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
Does this kind of LinkedIn bologna get people noticed? I think it’s the most pretentious thing going.
How do people feel about federalizing education. This would put teachers on the GS pay scale where federal employees with a bachelor's degree would all have a minimum salary and federal benefits.
So I had a general phone screen over the summer last year. It was for a studio role, but I was and AD. So it never played out. I reach out every once In a while and have gotten two responses cont.
Kind of a different question ... for those who made the move to PE, any questions or things you wish you would’ve asked / known when you were interviewing that you know now working in the role?
MBB Experienced Hire 🐠 - did you have strategy experience when you applied to MBB? I have some Tech, and M&A experience. Do you think I can be a good candidate (applying at Assoc/Consultant level).
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Are utilization targets strict at every consulting firm? I know we complain a lot at Deloitte but I’m not sure if it’s the same everywhere
Anyone gotten rhinoplasty? I was getting consults before the pandemic and chickened out bc I’m terrified of dying in surgery for a cosmetic procedure. But I’m considering it again bc I hate how I look in photos and bc we’re all wfh and I’ve never met my colleagues in person so no one would know. Anyone had this done? Was it worth it? Any issues?
