My firm (over 1,000 lawyers) just put a firm-wide “we need to talk” zoom call on all associates’ calendars for later today. No one knows what it’s about or will give any info. Not going to be a productive day.
Thoughts on Zoom? Did a mistake to buy at $460 right after results. And it has been tanking since that day. Cut losses or hold? Thoughts please? Thanks.
Does the firm have the ability to actively monitor skype chats? Does the people consultant have the power to oversee or someone else? Just curious
What do you do to celebrate a dad to be for 20-30 mins on Zoom? We’ll present the gift but I’m not sure how else to fill the time.
I want to personally thank all the men who use emojis in work emails / skype meeting chat boxes. I now know who not to worry about.
Does anyone have a virtual happy hour activity that was actually fun, other than drinking some expensed booze.
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
Anyone else feel/felt out of breathe just talking a lot during a Zoom meeting? Third trimester and trying to have "Executive Presence" is so hard when you are bloated, burpy and winded during pregnancy.
My manager is really ticking me off. He stopped caring so I have to pick up his slack. I get why he is so tired but there's work to do.. how can I protect my hide without throwing him under the bus?
Tried Facebook Rooms yesterday for a call. It was good until the sound cut out. Hangouts has terrible video quality. Zoom has a 40 minute limit for the fee version. Skype is so 2019. What’s your video conference platform of choice including Pros and cons?
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
I held WORK (Slack) through the Salesforce Acquisition. I got a cash payout for $26 per stock. But I bought for $30-34. So I lost $8 per stock? And then they gave me CRM (Salesforce) stock, but I don’t know how they calculated the shares. So basically, I should have sold WORK before the acquisition closed?

Has anyone had some cosmetic procedures done during this pandemic? Are you happy with the result and have you been able to hide behind Zoom (without video on) while you recover?
McK 🐠, have my first round case (zoom) coming up in a few weeks. Any idea what the % pass rate is for moving onto final round, and the final round pass rate too?
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
I feel like this is a big fat no: I left Deloitte in 2019. In 2019 I traveled to two states for work...is there a way to get Deloitte to reimburse me for the $110 I’m about to pay to TurboTax?

HILTON just sent out an email saying they’d adjust the points required for elite status qualifications once the situation is assessed by the team. And reservations can be changed without any fees CONT
Anyone at McKinsey & Company care to share any insight into the McKinsey Associate - Transformation role? I am very interested in the role and have the 3+ years of restructuring experience and 2 years of corporate experience.
Are comp days a thing at your agency? If so do you have to ask, is it a direct day for a day thing, or do you get shamed just for even asking should you dare ask for sacrificing personal downtime from what is an already stacked work schedule?
How much work is a manager supposed to do if they’re allocated 50% on the project? I feel like I’m doing their job and mine.
Aghaaaa just popping in to vent about lack of transparency in bonuses and raises. Something that is frankly rather frustrating.... I joined the firm 6 months ago and during my salary negotiations was told I’d be up for review and possible bump to my original ask at my six month review. I had an excellent six month review and have heard zero about the raise. I had to follow up on the issue of Bunyan and was finally told am getting a modest amount. Now I have to follow up on raises which I hear
Do we think we are clear with the layoffs?
Thoughts on buying a rental property right now? Nobody can predict the future, but curious to hear if anyone has any data points or hypotheses one way or the other. Southeastern city, hot area.
How long can I ride the bench?
Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.

What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move and am wondering if I made the right choice?
please god, i am barely hanging on with motivation to complete my work, why do i have an over eager intern assigned to me :/
First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm. The majority of my experience has been working in private funds, financings, some M&A, and limited Real Estate work. I think I enjoy the idea of a few years in big law after law school to pay off loans (undergrad+law school), but am not sold b/c I have been remote since I started in January and rarely get to interact live with deal teams. How can I tell?
