Actually i enjoy the freedom immensely if i’m not speaking or i know that the convo won’t be involving me i turn off camera and my microphone and take my portable anker bluetooth speaker with me into the kitchen and do dishes organize the cupboards do prep work for dinner or i put zoom call through my airpods and vaccuum organize living room fold laundry reorganize spice rack swiffer ceiling fans or give my dogs an epic petting sesh if i need to be getting work done in the garage or upstairs i set up my laptop in those rooms for start of the call and do likewise it is soooooooo much better than having to sit around a conference room after a turd commute and look at stuff online while people drone on and on and on my apartment myself and pets have never been happier

I'm telling y'all, if you can switch to Discord, do switch to Discord. 1.) Push to talk is a game changer. No more weird interjections unless it happens while the speaker is holding their PTT button. 2.) You can have a meeting and screen share without necessitating in video. At. All. 3.) Crazy good sound quality. 4.) Runs in the background while you're working on other things. Just don't play a video game when you're supposed to be in a meeting or it will show what you're playing just below your user name. 5.) Integrated Slack-like chat for any call or channel you set up. The learning curve is a bit steep at first, but once you get it, you get all of it.

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?

A few weeks ago I had a boss make fun of me on a call for looking “gloomy” and he wouldn’t let it go. He kept yelling in a joking way at me to ‘cheer up’ in front of others on a zoom call. I wasn’t being rude, just quieter that day, as I was going through a mental health issue. . It’s been eating at me the way he bullied me on call - should I say something ? I feel a 55 year-old man should’ve learned not to do this by now... don’t know how to come at it without seeming whiny WOC...

Anyone here fly in/out of DCA or IAD within the last month or so? Trying to get a feel for which airport may be better with COVID in terms of less people, better sanitation, rule following etc. Also, I’ve heard Delta is the better airline at the moment but where I’m headed I can only take United or AA (for nonstop)- anyone recommend one over the other?

Hey y’all: currently weighing the benefits of obtaining an MBA. Started career with 2.5 years of corporate FP&A, then moved to Senior Consultant at a high growth Mgt Consulting firm (1.5 years in). I’ve seen roles back in industry require (interchangeably) MBA or 2-year management consulting experience. Are MBAs helpful/necessary for consultants...just to have one? Should it be more purpose-driven? Etc.

I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?

My bf was just asked to go back to the office (not an essential worker). We’re on the west coast so still have COVID cases. Are there workplace protections that he can use if he says he’s not comfortable with it yet? We live together and are both uncomfortable with the idea, but don’t want to risk him getting fired or experiencing backlash at work. He’s been working from home for 9 weeks already.
