The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications

Right now I’m salty AF towards all these apps, and I’m sure Wrike is useful for some projects, but we’re only using it because our account people literally can’t say no to our client and adopt anything and everything to “make it easier on them” while completely fucking us. I honestly just check all of them in rotation once every 90 min otherwise I’d waste more than an hour a day trying to FIND MY WORK

It's poisonous.

Last place had Google Docs, slack, Basecamp and of course, email. Despite all best intentions for each having their role, it was impossible to find a file/feedback/spec/etc.

Is anybody up for a more focused whatsapp group and a weekly 15 minute catchup on zoom on the weekends?

The purpose for this will be that it'll get us to open our laptops and hopefully sit and study later. Also, it might be good to know what others are working on, give progress updates, and solve and discuss problems together.

This might also keep us motivated and incentivise us to keep working hard!

I work in an old school company that does not allow anyone to work remote except for management if necessary. Ever since the pandemic started, it’s been a regular day reporting to work and sitting in the office all day. Due to Covid, we decided it’s best to not meet in person but stay in our desk and talk via Teams/zoom. I am now struggling on finding a remote job because I don’t have any remote work experience. Any tips on how to get a remote job in HR?
