We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
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?
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
You know what grinds my gears? When SM or above still don't know how to send a Skype call properly and make you type everything in manually... for a daily call, over the next year 😑😑
I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?
Y’all be letting these white people see y’all drinking on these virtual happy hour calls?
Prepping for my first Zoom call of the day...
In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
Where are the office Halloween zoom pics???
Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!
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.
Zoom drinking games
Haven't seen anyone put "Available for Staffing" in their Skype location. Seeks like it would be helpful for people in your network to know you're free without contacting everyone. Any downside?
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
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?
Which Big 4 is the best to be at regarding work culture and benefits? Especially during these tough times.
Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
KPMG vs Capgemini Invent? Which do you think is a better choice? I’ve been offered a similar level role with similar compensation in both. Working within FS and data consulting. Long term I’d like to move to a tier-1/ tier-2 consultancy. Thanks!
Planning a trip to Maine with my gf- any recs for places to see, things to do, etc.? We definitely want to check out Portland and Acadia National Park
How’s the consulting work life balance at Big 4 in Europe Do folks work more than 45 hours through the week and is it normal to have to work on weekends?
I'm a C3 in TC resources mi home office is D.C. My salary is under 90k.. and I under paid?
Interview on Friday for an internal audit position. Apparently I have to write a case assessment an hour prior to the interview (like an exam). Has anyone done such a thing before? Any tips?
For my Deloitte 🐠 who left and had to pay back a retention bonus…how long were you able to string along D without repayment?
@Accenture sharks: I am currently in the process of interviewing for a Consultant role in Finance Transformation in NYC. What should I negotiate for in terms of salary? Any other advice on the interview process? Honestly, from how much I make right now, it feels wrong to negotiate up to an increase of more than double.
Am I good enough to join MBB? I am a degree apprentice for a big 4 consultancy, with 1 day off for study (management degree with the Open University). Once I complete my degree, I hope to join either McKinsey, Bain or BCG as a generalist. I will have 4YE working as a (non-strat) analyst. As I see it, my greatest obstacle will be getting an interview given my lack of a prestigious education/good upbringing. Grateful for any insights on how I can maximise my chances/if I have a chance at all.
Should I leave consulting to go into a product strategy role at a big bank? I’m at a crossroads here
Hey guys, do you know what’s the use case for the phone in the bathroom? I’m comfortably seated in my newly refurbished SPG preferred room and I wonder why they kept the phone in here 🚽🤔
Has anyone done the Sober Curious Reset? If so, how has life without Alcohol been for you? How do you feel now versus before? And no judgement to anyone here that drinks
With fishbowl being purchased by Glassdoor, can we opt out of our posts being shared there? I don’t know about you all, but I posted in this app with the intention of having my content live on this app. I don’t want my thoughts, even anonymously (and not all were) plastered on the much more public website, Glassdoor. What do you all think? Can anyone from Fishbowl respond?
I’ve been tasked with managing/mentoring the newish jr team, and I’m concerned. These two are very combative about their ideas, which generally aren’t good, coherent, or answering the brief. They continuously act like they know things I don’t because they’re 5 years younger than me and ignore my feedback. How can I set them straight without being mean? They are on their way to getting let go, I’m basically the last person defending them, and they’re making me feel bad about it.
