EY fish, does your mobile Skype App log you out after you exist the app for about 10 min or so? It’s so annoying to log back in every time and enter all the ID and password.
If you get in a “yelling” match with you’re boss or your own personal client, do you usually back down? Lmao
Just wondering cause I just got into it with one of my clients’ points of contact (I’m a freelancer), and I’m not sure if she expected me to back down🤣 she was clearly in the wrong, and I embarrassed her, and made sure the client knew it when I sent a video in our slack channel
TLDR: junior associates just don’t get it. When I was a junior associate I couldn’t imagine telling a senior associate on the day an assignment was due that I had other more urgent deadlines and I couldn’t get to their assignment. Are you kidding me? When we’re you going to communicate this? Am I supposed to just pick up the slack here and do your work for you? Our client deadline hasn’t changed. Was it just going to magically get done? WTF
Will schools be in person this fall? I heard nightmare stories of Zoom University at various top schools from alumni.... i feel like these schools are so ill prepared for anything digital except CMU and other online programs
What are techniques for giving a good presentation via zoom? Want to avoid seeming like I’m reading talking points but also would like to have a way to ensure I’m hitting all the key points
How does everyone deal with work anxiety? Lately mine has gotten worse. There’s always so much to do and you can’t really slack off (or you end up working late),everything requires your full attention
I’m curious what others are using for their online platform?
I’m at a Charter school in Los Angeles and we are doing distance learning, we start in a week and have no online platform. We only have zoom and some learning sites. I’m starting to stress out. How are kids supposed to turn in any work?!
Pro tip: start a Zoom meeting with yourself so your status changes and nobody bothers you for a bit.
One of my coworkers has been constantly messaging me on Slack about things that have nothing to do with work. I can't mute him because we work on projects together, so what should I do?

How's the WiFi on Delta international flights? Can I get work done and connect on Skype with minimal issues?
Honest question to those affinity groups that have a designated month to celebrate - I’ll use the LGBTQ community as an example as we wrap up Pride month. How would you feel about your MD or Partner using a teams or zoom background with the rainbow flag in celebration of Pride if you know they are not part of the community? I think they are trying to be an inclusive leader or make others feel welcome, but wondering if others think it’s a token check the box action?
How are you developing client relationships when in-person networking is out?
I'm used to hanging out with my clients frequently, grabbing coffee, stopping by the office, etc. Zoom/Hangouts meetings just feel really awkward and it's difficult switching from business development which was 90% IRL to nearly all online... Especially when I run a 1-person shop.
How about y'all?
Saddest part of people quitting before was seeing their name/email disappear from Outlook/Skype/Zoom/etc.. guess I’ll be seeing a lot more of that in the coming weeks 😢
Is downloading Microsoft Teams on your phone a safe option, or does it give access to your employer? (Personal phone, not work phone). I know that logging into work email gives some kind of permission to your company, but does Teams do that as well?
What’s your take on Zoom/teleconference deps?
Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?

When a superior team member has to stay late but you piece out at 4 like a boss...#IBeFeelinLikeTheManWhenIWalkOut
Started new job search. It is nearly impossible to talk to recruiters and companies for quick phone calls during day due to micro managing and controlling team. Not sure how to go about this.
I don't know folks. Everything except the wall sounds reasonable in the immigration reform this dude is proposing.
Gotta love this one.

How unreasonable is it to want a few Saturdays in the fall pre-10/15 filing deadline for federal/international tax
I am a paralegal with 7 YOE (mixture of workers comp defense, personal injury, and now working in the litigation department in-house for a mortgage company). I have a BS in Legal Studies and am considering obtaining my MBA.
Anyone pivot from the legal world into something else using an MBA? I just feel like I’ve hit a ceiling and won’t ever make the money I would like to.
I’m thinking maybe risk, compliance, or HR, although none of these things necessarily appeal to me.
