I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Skype?
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?
Anyone at slack willing to refer?
How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?
Skype issues anybody?
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
Any ideas to do networking here? Thinking about doing zoom calls if people are up for it
I’ll be doing my first deposition ever via Zoom in a month or two. Any tips? Resources to read? Videos to watch? (I’m a rising second year associate who got hired during the pandemic. I really want to impress my new bosses, so I’m going to put in tons of non-billable time prepping)
Does anyone here take a 'lazy day'? Where people think you are just working at another location but you are at home with Skype on pretending to be busy?
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 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?
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.
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the success of so many other meeting platforms.
About to start traveling A LOT. Do people recommend southwest or United? Flying out of Chicago and equidistant to midway and ORD.
Saving cord blood stem cells… we did not do this with our first and I am somewhat regretting it (no sicknesses or anything just to have in case). I’m pregnant with our second (and it was a long journey to get here) and considering banking the cord blood. I do have an auto-immune disease myself for reference. I’d love feedback, for those that have, do you feel it was worth it?
Hi, I want to have a career switch. Am looking to be a part of a business development team of any company in any sector (start ups too). Ive got a years experience in deal advisory + ACCA. Any suggestions?
Has anyone tried having a flipped classroom? I read that it reduces the amount of homework/work students have to do outside of class.
Would a SHRM certification be beneficial for a consultant in organization strategy? Anyone in a similar boat?
Any insights on the current salary to expect as a senior account supervisor/senior account manager in health at a PR/Comms agency? I know salaries have grown with demand over the past year so not sure what to ask for. Top ten agency, DC.
Does Accenture do H1B transfers in US?
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?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
I’m studying for the SHRM-CP with the Mometrix (study guides, online course, and flash cards), however I’m super overwhelmed with all of the information. What are some best practices to ensure I grasp all of the concept ? Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
Ex-kpmg employee here so can’t post in that bowl but does anyone here know how pension plan works? I was vested based on time with firm but does the money stay there til retirement or can you request lump sum payout and invest it how you want? Thanks!
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?
Got offered to go to RSM from a big four with a 40% raise and a promotion. I should make manager this round if I stay so promotion isn’t that big of a deal. Should I take it? I’ll have smaller clients, but think I’ll really shine there too. Less work, more pay... I could always go back to my current firm. Thoughts?
This country needs labor laws that actually protect workers is when time like this comes, average folks like us don't have to worry to sick about layoffs.
Just learned an expensive consulting lesson - don’t be on the bench during Cyber Monday.... in other news, I now have a lot of new toys
One friend announces an engagement, another announces a baby, and I'm sitting here on a Friday night baking cookies and coloring. Making thirty look shitty.
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?
