Do folks at other firms hate Webex as much as we do?! They made us switch about 18 months ago. People gate it. And yeah that’s pretty sad. Call your mom

I am used to WebEx now. Don’t hate it at all.

WebEx seems the least bad option out there. Why no one has come up with a far superior and more reliable option, I have no idea.

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?

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 recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.

My best friend’s parents tested positive for COVID today an started showing symptoms 2 day ago. He hasn’t seen them in ~2 weeks but we’ve been in regular contact. My sister feels as if I should now quarantine and isolate myself. I think I’m fine since he hasn’t been in contact with them or anyone else in that house (he has a brother who lives with them that tested negative). I’m going to continue to take precautions but not quarantine. Am I being selfish?

Coming back to D in October after LOA. During that LOA, I was approached by other firms, and received 3 offers. I do want to stay at D but if they cant match the offers I received, I will leave (offers include 30% increase and a promotion). How should I go about this? Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?
