Tell me your craziest experience working with a TV network. Here comes mine:

I'm American, but my family is mostly Colombian. I was told my aunt and cousins would come here for 2 weeks. I discovered they were going to be paid to appear in a famous Hispanic TV show, where a "judge" receives a case, hears the plaintiffs and defendants and renders a verdict. But of course, it's all fake and payed 😂 turns out she wanted me to go there (even though I don't work for that TV network) so she's sure she'll be paid at the end of the show. Wth did I just do.

On my first day of work after graduating, I forgot to turn on my camera so the entire first part of the broadcast was not recorded from my angle. I wanted the earth to swallow me up

I was working on a project for a TV network and we were all in the conference room, waiting for the final go ahead. The president of the network came in and said that he had to leave for an emergency meeting and he would be back in an hour. We waited and waited, but he never came back. Finally, we called his assistant and she said that he had been called away to Japan and wouldn't be back for two weeks.

In general, what are your thoughts around engagement management vs product management? I’ve found countless YouTube videos explaining product management, career opportunities, and crazy comps, but very little when it comes to engagement managers. Would love to hear your take on the better of the two career paths (especially in terms of TC, as well as work/life balance) full disclosure- I’m an engagement manager now and having a hard time defining a career track/development opps

Like most tech companies, about a year ago my company started hiring remote employees. we all worked remotely for 24 months.

Now that we are reopening our offices, no one seems to be coming into the office yet. I really do not want to work remotely anymore, and I’m seriously considering changing jobs just to go back to a workplace where people are in person.

Is anybody else in this position? I feel like I am losing my mind working from home for two years with no end in sight.

Hi everyone - Is anyone doing a workout program they’ve seen results from? I’m looking to tone up and lose about 10-15lbs. I follow some trainers and people on Instagram but it seems everyone posting about their great results are in their 20’s & 30’s - I used to see great results then too :) looking for suggestions from women in their 40’s+ . I know eating is a huge part, and I do put a lot of focus on that as well. Just wanted to throw the question out in hopes of some ideas/inspiration. TIA!
