Anyone feel like the latest batch of new hires absolutely suck? I think not being in the office and not having expectations made clear makes it easy for them to slack off.
After 3 months of having to use mobile Skype instead of desktop I can say the only good thing about it is I can ignore messages and people will just think it didn’t go through. Otherwise it’s garbage.
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
Scrabble is the Skype of Omnicron
"busy" or "available" on skype? i like the green
Think I accidentally discovered this morning that I can add external people to Skype IMing by having them join a Skype meeting.
Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.
Hello! Does anyone have any good process or protocol documents for Slack they’d be willing to share? Thank you!

I started sitting on an exercise ball to improve my core and apparently I was subconsciously bouncing up and down during a zoom meeting. Two people pinged me asking what I was doing— I am so embarrassed😩
Do you think you qualify of life would be better at a firm that doesn’t use Skype/Teams, where it shows if and when you’re online? I think that is my biggest complaint about the firm I am at.
How many of you use Skype and not Teams?
Showers: Zoom or masked / distanced (and ideally vaxxed!)? Looking at last weekend in Feb or first in March. Will be too cold where we live to hold a shower outside. What are you ladies doing? Any ideas on how to make it fun?
How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.
The guy next to me on my flight just used his Deloitte corporate card to buy WiFi on his Deloitte laptop and how he’s reviewing an offer letter for a job from PwC. What an inspiration

Applied for a spouse visa, anyone have any ideas on how long it’s been typically taking? Website states 3-12 months so wondering if it’s been on the longer end or shorter end in the recent past!
Have an offer I’m going to take start date Dec 13th. Have 360 hours of PTO (don’t ask how I have that much). Was going to take it all at once and take two months between jobs but was advised not to give notice in the middle of an extended PTO like that as it would look bad. What do you guys think? Alternative is I take October and come back in November for 2 weeks to get bonus and then give notice.

I recently moved out of my apartment complex 2 weeks ago and ended my lease early because I had to move for work. The leasing office calls me today and said they “forgot” to bill me for a $1200 rent concession I received when I first moved in (First Month free rent promotion). After looking the lease, I found the clause but I really don’t want to pay especially when they made the mistake on not billing me and are just now following up 2 weeks later. Advice? Ideas? Similar situations?

People always say FAANG but I rarely see mentions of Netflix...is it just because it’s a handy acronym?
