Women associates in BigLaw first years through third years: what would you most like to learn from a seasoned woman lawyer: 1. How to be confident in meetings and speak up appropriately in them every single time, 2. How to effectively run a meeting, 3. How to conquer fear of failing and learn to have your own back, or 4. Something else. If I ran a free zoom call for an hour for the first 4 people who were interested, would that help you?
Zoom WFH secrets: No one has figured out yet the big black box thing in the background of my home office is where hubby dries and trims his pot plants.
Was on a group call and discussing Team vs zoom. One partner mentioned Zoom security issues and another partner mentioned Zoom being a Chinese company and made a comment that “ that makes sense, you can’t really trust the Chinese” I am Chinese American and somewhat felt offended. Am I being too sensitive?
My firm (over 1,000 lawyers) just put a firm-wide “we need to talk” zoom call on all associates’ calendars for later today. No one knows what it’s about or will give any info. Not going to be a productive day.
I’m preparing for a zoom hearing tomorrow and I just realized how much I hate the sound of my own voice! Sorry judge!
Does EY reimburse the premium fee for webex?
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
Caption this... (zoom in)
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
Has anyone eloped or done a zoom wedding? Any regrets? I wouldn’t mind a small wedding/reception, but I can’t help but think zoom might feel a little lonely/unreal.
Skype for business.... Why must you suck....
Skype issues anybody?
Does anyone know which agency made the latest TD bank ad? (A bunch of TD staff chatting on a zoom call together brainstorming )
Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
Here we go! ✈️ TSA, crying children, tourists, decks, calls, WebEx, perpetual email chains. Vroom Vroom.

Public finance IB analyst here - since our group is technically part of sales & trading, we weren’t given the same junior bankers raise that the rest were given. Seems pretty unfair imo, does anyone know if this is the same at all firms?

Interviewed yesterday with D for a consulting role with GPS 2ish YOE and multiple internships with big orgs. Everything went great except the qualitative part of the case which was awkward because I was emailed a sheet that had partial info about the case prior to the start, but I was supposed to act as if I didn’t? Quantitatively went very well. One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢 Any tips on this last interv?

Anyone from Avanade here? Negotiating an offer with them and want some insights into their work culture/benefits/progression.
Anyone know someone who’d be interested in a marketing role at a top VC fund in the South? You’ll be working with some of the most successful investors in the region - partners include a former unicorn founder and a CEO of a $15B company. Ideally a background in tech/digital marketing - looking for someone with 2+ YoE. I don’t have salary details, but I’d imagine pay’s around 80k-90k + bonus. DM me for details.
Husband and I are moving to Seattle in a couple of months. His office is in downtown Seattle and mine is in Sodo. He wants to be able to walk or bike to work. I will be mostly WFH but want to be relatively close to office. We also have a pup. Any recommendations for neighborhoods or apartment buildings much appreciated! We would prefer to be close to parks and grocery stores vs. bars.
Anybody have a Delta drink voucher for someone who is desperately hungover and spent way too much at a bachelor party over the weekend? TIA, compadres
Has anyone looked into or pursued a PhD in accounting? I’m 32 years old and planning to have kids in the next few years so the thought of going back to school for 4-5 years is pretty scary. Im also nervous about giving up my salary to be a student again. My partner is very supportive and we don’t necessarily need my salary but I’m also very independent and the thought of relying on someone else financially makes me uneasy. I know I don’t want to stay in public accounting and would love to teach.
For those who used their employer fertility benefits/allotment (i.e. $25k for medical and $10k for prescriptions), how much did you roughly spend out of pocket for IVF?
Two years in and I'm still kind of bad at the job, which is hurting my confidence and probably making me worse at the job. I'm trying to stick it out for one more year (will be more like 6-8 months with externship), but curious how others who are mediocre at MBB have found the exit process.
Hi ladies! I’m a maid of honor and would love your thoughts on ideas for a bachelorette party (~4 hrs) in the Stamford area. The bridesmaids are not party people. They enjoy board games, nature, cooking, tea tastings, pastries, ice cream, yoga, and swing dancing. Any ideas for things we can do? Thanks SO MUCH 💕 never planned something like this before...
