Okay just sharing something that made me happy today.. In a DM convo w a male coworker, he used a winky face (cultural differences, don’t think he meant to make me uncomfortable) I vented about it in my WIT slack at work that it feels icky when older men use 😉, especially in DMs My boss (a woman) reached out privately and asked if she needed to step in and make me more comfortable. I didn’t need it, but knowing she’s got my back was amazing. Women leaders make me feel 😍😌
We officially made it through Black History Month without my agency mentioning it ONCE in a company wide email, slack, or any other initiative whatsoever. They also never mentioned Lunar New Year! This lack of awareness and care for employees has validated my recent job search. Has anyone else experienced this?
My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
Soooooo tired of Zoom.
How do you subtly let a coworker sitting near you that they are overly loud? He conducts all his zoom meetings at his desk and I have to listen to his conversations.
If you're looking for some inspiration with virtual games, this article had some great ideas https://www.weareteachers.com/20-fun-zoom-games-for-kids/
Intern : "hey, this username/password combo didn't work for me. Config issue?" Engineer to intern : "Please rotate this password. You should not share passwords on slack". Intern: "how do I rotate a password?" What happened to common sense 😭? Is this another caution: hot coffee cup scenario?
In your opinion, how important is it to be perceived as always being online (available on teams or Skype)? Asking because I’ve noticed people commenting on a certain associate always being online at odd hours.
Novice investor here so please bear with me. I opened a vanguard account dec 2019 and invested around $1K..over the course of the year I invested about $68k.. I just checked the total gains and it shows about $10k. That’s about 14% gain via investment in small amounts in vgt, zoom, tsla, ark, vtsax etc..Is it fair to assume 15% gain year over year ?
Started a new job and meeting the team for the first time tomorrow (via zoom). I have natural curls (2C/3A) and in the past have always blown it out for first impressions. I’m considering letting it curl for tomorrow’s meeting but am overthinking it (I normally wear it curly for work, if that matters)… any thoughts?

Who has a very large Microsoft Teams environment? How you managing it (easy/difficult) and what tools have you tried?
Does anyone have tips, tricks or words of advice for facilitating an effective & engaging creative review meetings? I’m a Creative Account Manager at an in house agency. Zoom creative reviews with our clients will start next week. My participation is ensuring creatives on, setting up the meeting and then creative presenting their work (fairly straightforward). Do you meet with your creative teams before the presentation? What are some core “dos and donts “?
I’m literally terrified about the thought of going back to the office and having to wear outfits and bras and shoes again—every day in a row. It’s exhausting to think about the pressure and energy spent on how we look.
I just found out my dance school offers live classes on zoom. Yay or nay? Anyone take a gym or dance class on zoom?
My work partner has a toddler and frequently misses meetings or goes on mute due to kid-related things. They also have to disappear around 6pm for a few hours bc of kid. Even if/when they can chat later in the evening, they’re usually pretty checked out or I just don’t feel like brainstorming at 10pm. Long story short, I feel like I’m picking up a lot of the slack due to their inability to be around, but I also feel bad because obviously parenting is hard. Can anyone relate?
Anyone using video conferencing like gotomeeting / Skype / zoom to sell life insurance or DI? What are you showing them or just video?
I’m a single parent and mid-level associate, and have been struggling with the increased expectations from pandemic-level work. I do not have the luxury of a full-time nanny, maids or stay-at-home spouses like most of the partners I work with and the expectation that I be available 24/7 (and on zoom) is impossible to keep up with lately. Work was manageable pre-pandemic (and I really enjoyed it) but these new expectations seem unsustainable. Anyone else in the same boat? How are you managing?
Question: would you dress as a drag queen for a work Zoom HH? The theme lends itself well to being Alyssa Edwards. Not in the closet but not sure if it might be disruptive. Thoughts?

I was attending a wedding with my bf as a +1, he left the wedding early (before main course) - I was about to go into the elevator with him, and the door closed before I could get in. (Cont'd)
