If you think crying in front of your very uptight male boss is rough, try doing it on a Zoom call.
Ever feel like this in Business Affairs? Teams don’t invite you to meetings or Zoom happy hours because you work on so many accounts no team really identifies with you? Your agency keeps chopping BA. (Until there’s a SAG claim and then everyone knows exactly who you are)
I want to crawl into a hole and hide after every meeting.
After I leave Zoom, I'm left alone with my thoughts and all I can do lament about how I talked too much, too little, said the wrong thing, laughed inappropriately, and how everyone probably hates me because of The Way I Am and I'm on the verge of getting fired.
I have an supportive team and boss but I can't help thinking everyone is silently judging me and talking about how awful I am behind my back.
What’s the best way you relay marketing information to sales? Have mostly relayed info about accounts active on our website/ registering for webinars via email to our sales team, and recently moved those alerts to slack. What works for you?

Does anybody else hear the chime in the Microsoft teams commercial and get pissed that somebody is trying to reach you on holiday break?
Hi guys. I am looking for ideas for zoom work happy hour. Trying to boost teams morale in the current environment. Any suggestions or somethings you tried with your teams?
What do you think about Slack IPO - would you buy at $25/share? Is there potential here?
Why do people call or ping you when you have away or in a meeting/presenting status on skype? Do people not look at these before engaging?
Skype signs me in and out randomly several times throughout the day -but only at home.... office and other networks never happens. Could this be a modem/router issue?
Ever had this happen to you on a webex? https://www.facebook.com/bbcradio1/videos/10156026851374968/ 😄
Company policy doesn’t allow for employees to roll over PTO. My manager cancelled 5 days of PTO in December and the opportunity to reschedule wasn’t what I wanted. I pushed and they allowed me to roll it over. She told me in IM this was approved, but Skype for Business history is not always reliable. If you were in my shoes how would you go about asking for written approval from my manager and her director without appearing as if you don’t trust them?
In need of some recommendations for a reliable and affordable laptop that has a decent battery life and allows for see less Zoom calls. I’m not looking to spend a fortune and prefer Microsoft as the operating system. Any suggestions would be helpful!
I told my boss I found his “Thanks.” on Slack aggressive and he now uses exclamation points to make me happy 😂 awww but I actually appreciate it lol. I know this sounds ridiculous which is why it’s a confession.
Is there a way I can see who invited me to a zoom meeting? Just got a random zoom meeting request drom someone I’ve never met

I feel like I always do the absolute most for my family only to be shit on. I'm the one who purchased the most extravagant gifts and I put so much thought into them and I end up getting yet another oil diffuser and some socks. It's not even about the money spent. I would be perfectly happy with a good book. But just the lack of thought and then being put down for other things just a few hours after they've all opened the gifts I got for them. It is really disheartening and hurts me a lot.

As H-1B, where do you invest most of your money? I have been saving up to maybe buy a house but it looks like future is so uncertain I would not make that investment for a while.

Thoughts on moving to your hometown vs staying in a larger city as a single 29 year old? Plan to move back to my hometown after I find someone to settle down with, really only stay in the larger city due to more options for dating. My hometown is where all my interests are and it’s closer to my family lake home. I’ve been in my hometown staying with family since March and am pretty happy with it, but worry I’ll die alone. I’ve spent maybe 3 weeks at my apartment since the pandemic started.

At first job for 1.5 years, been at new job for 8 months and hate it (don’t like my boss and the work isn’t what I was promised). Feels like a bait and switch. Will I look like a job hopper if I decide to start searching now?
By now, nearly every CEO of a major company has made some public statement or proclamation of their commitment to racial equality, diversity, and such matters. What percent of those do you believe truly comes from the heart and a bias for both personal and corporate action, versus a necessary public relations response with little personal ownership? My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.

So I just bought a new construction home. I asked the builders if they can get pest control to come and treat the house because there are bugs everywhere still. (There were bugs prior to closing that I commented on). Their response was no, that's my responsibility.
Is there anything I can do since I made mention of this prior to closing? I have 2 more weeks to bring stuff up for the builder to fix before I'm on my own. What should I be looking for in these two week?
