I work at a small creative agency and we’re looking to implement a project management tool to track projects across our various clients. Any thoughts on monday vs Wrike? Or any other platform you’d recommend? Prioritizing ease of use and integrations with Gsuite, Slack, Harvest etc.

Has anyone heard of a membership group called Revenue Collective? What are your perceptions of its value? Seems like a pay to play slack group with other people in commercialization roles.

Cringiest hot mic 🎙 moment of WFH? I was on a webex and a phone call at the same time. The phone call was to provide so not very nice feedback about a peer. Turns out I was not muted in the meeting and said peer was on the webex. 😳

How should I approach an ominous zoom appointment with supervisinpartner and managing partner? I’m a 3rd year associate. This is a new job, my first day was the first day the whole firm worked from home. It’s also much more challenging and demanding than my previous firm, which is what I wanted, but I haven’t been able to dive in and face the challenge the way I had planned to because I’m really struggling with working from home, both logistically and psychologically....

I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff. I used to just show up to those to be a good “firm citizen,” but I’d really love to see another lawyer in person instead of through a Zoom call. If I ran into one of my old classmates from law school, I’d probably hug them right now.

I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.

If you miss a zoom meeting your bosses are on as well as other attorneys because you overslept where you were supposed to share some updates on cases you are working on as part of the conversation, do you apologize and tell them you missed your alarm OR make something up (white lie) of something that came up that you had to deal with?
