How often are critical roles at your company vacant? I’ve been at my current company for >4 years, and I was reflecting on how we seem to constantly be under-staffed. Every time someone leaves, we treat it as temporary that everyone else will need to stretch themselves and pick up the slack, and eventually we do fill that role, but then someone else leaves shortly afterwards, and we are back to being stretched again. It’s super tiring, and I wonder how normal it is.
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
When placed on a team where work is unevenly done/you have to start picking up the slack, how do you bring that up (nicely) in the team without going to the manager?
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀

Offer at growth tech company in SF/NYC: 135k TC (105k Base, 120k RSUs over 4 years, no signing) 2.5 YOE, offer would be for Sr. Business Analyst at Asana, AirBnB, Slack, etc. Take the offer if you’re current TC is 95k? Why or why not? Thx for the feedback
Can companies monitor or listen in to the audio of Zoom calls if accounts are company facilitated?
Sometimes I feel the need to correct someone else in our Zoom meetings, but it seems rude to just start talking over them and no one pays attention to the texts. What's the etiquette?
Does Salesforce (and its acquisition companies like Tableau and Slack) top up RSUs each year in addition to the original RSU grant at signing?
How do you have a Zoom chat? Do you need a membership? Anyone in this group want to do a zoom chat? Would be great talking to people in this group.
I am a level 3 counselling student. Please note that means their are limitations to my work, there is a supervisor to support me. I was wondering if anyone would like to meet via zoom for a 4-6 week session of 30 minute helping sessions? It's free, and it is confidential. I am a woman, 30, and obviously in advertising.
What are some good headphones for Skype calls? Preferably bluetooth. My current headphones bring in too much background noise of the slightest things for the person on the other end.
Do any other managers get annoyed when a resource works from home and is unavailable via Lync or Skype through significant periods of the day? How do you handle?
When you and your manager randomly geek out about VR over Skype instead of finishing up a deliverable - Friday's, am I right? 😎
How do you handle when one Big 4 firm is trying to move really quickly through the interview process but I am also progressing through the process with an MBB as well that I really want to see through to the end. At the end of the day I don’t want to lose the Big 4 firm if MBB doesn’t come through.

Hi 🐠. I need your help please. What’s the best strategy you’ve used (that works) to book cheap flights? I hear a lot of things like: use incognito when searching for flights, best day to book a flight is on tuesdays, etc. I feel none of this is true. Toughts?
Anyone move to nyc with a pup? My guy is 10 months old and I need to move back. General advice is appreciated! 30lb goldendoodle here. Will need a walker going forward (post covid)
Can’t relate to people who think a baby is cute when it first comes out. Give it some time, they all look the same at first - like baked potatoes!
If anyone has spare Delta drink today they don’t plan on using, I’d appreciate it greatly if you’d be willing to share! On a redeye and a bit nervous about flying, wasn’t able to get an upgrade to C+
I haven’t even finished the final round with the company and they are asking my passport for visa purpose already…why do rush? (Not in the states) Also I am in the process with mbb.
Anyone here from EY Tysons Corner (Assurance Service Line) want to tell me about the firm culture, is it a great learning environment, client base? I got an offer for Senior 1 but want to be sure I’m making the right decision to go Big 4 or jump down to mid-tier. SN: I started at a smaller National firm but left years ago for industry so I’ll be coming in somewhat starting from square 1 but at a senior 1 level.
Are American SWUs or United GPUs more valuable?
How do you work interviews around work? Already drowning with initial stages (recruiter screens, case studies, hm interviews) and have no idea how I’m going to carve out time for panel/on-sites.
Am looking to pick out a daycare (pregnant now). What are key factors to keep in mind (besides obvious health and safety)? Proximity to our house? Price? Large center or small and home-run? What do you wish you'd known or paid attention to when picking out a daycare?

Can anyone tell me if Marcum drug tests experienced hires? Also, are client drug tests mandatory or “optional”?
I've been working for a regional public accounting firm since last Summer. It's a small office and I don't really fit in. The accounting software(s) is also ancient and slow here(circa 2003). I quickly applied for a position at a Big 4 and surprisingly was quickly offered a job. The training here has been haphazard and even managers barely know how to use the software. My main concern is the awkwardness from leaving after such a short time but the commute is an hour shorter to the big 4 firm.
Fish! Had COVID in the past, have antibodies still, now wanting to get the vax so I can get back on the road and travel internationally... so J&J or Pfizer? Anyone who also recovered from COVID have bad reactions to either??
PSA - those who are so close to Marriott lifetime platinum elite should work on getting the status by end of year. If you do this you will be grandfathered into lifetime platinum premier
Do people know how to determine a colleagues salary? I see lots of people complaining or boasting comparing their salaries to other people at Deloitte...and I wonder how do they know what other people make?
