Mid thirties M live in SoCal, F 🐠.... ready for a quarantine connect and build from there, DM me. Open to summer hikes or walks on the beach 🏖 or zoom/FaceTime calls. Life is great and now is the perfect time!
Any advice on not letting frustrations come out in an unproductive way over slack chats or other virtual programs, especially as we use these more and more instead of direct discussions?
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
🐠 sans children: you’re first call tomorrow is 7:00a. Not Zoom. Given your normal routine - what time do you set your alarm?
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.
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀
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?
Best zoom mishap stories?
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?
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!
Is there a way to automate money transfers to India in Indian currency ? Currently use zoom and don’t think there is a way
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
Slack is so amazing
Anyone here trying to plan a college graduate’s stay at home graduation celebration? What are your ideas? Beyond a nice dinner, champagne, zoom w their friends and maybe balloons I’m not sure what else to organize. Any ideas v appreciated!
I hate you Slack
Idk if its a generational thing but I hate when people at work call my cell unexpectedly. Can’t we just set up a zoom call?
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!
My senior claims his wifi card is "broken" but he just didn't want to lead the Webex. I did it. Can I bill his rate?
Any new parents, did you decide to circumcise your baby boy? Why and why not? I am conflicted, It’s not required in my culture , No one in my family had done it but looking at some benefits I am not sure if I should get it done for my newborn.
I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡
Anyone else seriously struggling with going back to the office? I’m going in three days a week and my mental health is… not great. I’m constantly miserable when there.

Technical Screening for DDV OWT for an associate role for PwC. Does anyone have any tips for this part of the interview, haven't had a technical screen before.
A partner said on a client call that we really miss an associate I’m filling in for and that the team should be up to speed when she gets back. I can’t help feeling a bit slighted by that. I get that she’s much more senior (I’m a 1st year who started a couple of months ago) but I don’t think I’ve done a bad job at all. My first brief was spot on arguments wise and didn’t have much redlines. Am I reading too much into it? Should I check in with him to ask if he’s unhappy with my work?
How to break into PE deal team (Credit or LBO)? I’m currently working at a $40+ bn PE but in the performance group. My day to day is mostly monitoring investments directly with deal team MDs and also preparing fundraising materials. I know how to do company valuations (DCF, comps, etc.) always been passionate about investing so that would be my ideal move. Current comp is $120k+. Willing to do an MBA.
Had a dream where a VP at the client knocked on my apartment door asking for an eta on an analysis he requested that is not due until next week... I need a vacation.
Folks, recently moved to an employer who doesn't offer 401k match and I am considering a traditional IRA to rollover my ~75k 401k funds. Any bank recommendations which offers the best fee/rate compared to the benefits ? Potentially some level of wealth mgmt for a smaller fee compared to the $25 + expense ratios with fidelity??

“How quickly are you looking to fill this position?” “Oh like, yesterday!” Day 3 passes… day 5… 7… Hey So-and-so, just following up on XYZ…” 🦗
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
