When you and your manager randomly geek out about VR over Skype instead of finishing up a deliverable - Friday's, am I right? 😎
What made you snicker, chuckle, chortle, giggle or laugh today? Quiet to maniacal, have at it. To get the obvious off the list... paycheck, hours, unlimited time off, budgets, looming deadlines, and pets on zoom/teams meetings.
Point to ponder - Using the same resources (Skype,zoom, meetings, calls etc.) that were always available to us, why didn’t we work from home all along and wasted so much time commuting/flying?🤔
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?
Whats the range for a senior manager at Zoom
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.
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(
Do you ever have parents sitting with their child on one of your zoom classes? Anything weird or awkward ever happen?

Anyone have a great CFP that works with folks remotely (I.e., via Skype or FaceTime) or in Boston? Looking to learn about the unknown, e.g., tax loss harvesting, 529s and other similar vehicles, etc
I think I smile and nod too much. How do I stop? I don’t want to smile all the time but it’s like I’ve been conditioned over time. It honestly is draining. Especially on zoom I can see myself and in my head I’m like wow I am a wreck smiling and nodding vigorously at the most inane things.
Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
Do expense amounts get escalated regularly? For everyone? For some reason they escalated a charge of 128 dollars for WebEx which is required for the client . What happens next? #ey
I love how even Slack’s servers were like, “damn man, I really don’t want to go to work this morning.”
Anyone know of a virtual teleprompter, that can be displayed on one computer but controlled remotely from another computer? Need to record a Zoom call with tele but can’t do screen share.
Interviews.... I’ve been with Accenture for 10 years and starting to get a few bites outside. Do you still wear suits to a interview or zoom call or is business casual ok? Years ago it was always suits but not sure about 2020. Not an executive role. Thanks and have a great thirsty Thursday!
How much more should someone ask for if a competing firm has less pto (7 days), less 401k match...401k doesnt kick in until 1st yr is over. Initially asked for 140k.
Can (Should) we all as employees decide that we don't want to get back to offices 5 days as week post this COVID19 fiasco is done and dusted.? What's the point? If we are able to deliver results, work and progress from home, then why do we need to be shackled back into the monolithic corporate systemic enslavement? Maybe stick with 1 or 2 days of office for Important F2F meeting, with rest WFH?
Hey Fishbowl community! Looking for referrals to MBB Toronto or NYC. Have 2 years of experience as an analyst at Accenture Toronto (1 month away from promo) - please DM if you can help :)
Has anyone interviewed with Intuit for Biz Ops before? I’m curious about the work that they typically do.
RIP my bank account 😓. Pay deferral program just kicked in. Any budget tips people can recommend to cut short term spending (other than going out to eat and dropping Starbucks. Haven’t done much of that since WFH started).
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Would Publicis Sapient MC practice have exit ops at the same level as Big 4? Or is their brand name closer to Tier 2 strategy consulting firms and MBB?
South Asian Muslim American Male - looking into opportunity to move to Saudi for a few years on secondment. Any insight on culture/pros/cons from folks that have spent time there? Know there is large expat community there.
Why does the 401k match in consulting suck so much as compared to corporate? What are some ways to make up for it other than just asking for higher base pay?
Crossposting from Immigration Attorneys: I’ve been practicing for 4 years, but new to the immigration practice. I recently submitted an I-129 for 15 H-2B landscape workers. I knew the deadline to beat the cap count would be close, but I convinced the client that we could take the chance. Unfortunately, the cap count was reached after we submitted, so no approval. Is there any other avenue to bring over those workers or is he screwed?
This is a long shot, but my lease is up in December and I’m looking to move into a house with a backyard for my dog. We are looking for a 3rd roommate for a 3+ br/ba. So if you happen to know anyone looking for a similar situation, let me know! My Brother is 30, a Brand Specialist with a BA from CU Denver, I’m 31 with a MBA from Leeds. My dog is 6 years old, 60lbs, super friendly. Open to anywhere between Denver and Boulder. Open to M/F and another dog is welcome. We’re both vaccinated.
Final round BCG interview approaching for SA. Case is obviously very important, but how is it weighted compared to Fit and Presence/Communication? Possible to not do that great on case and get offer?
Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?
anyone interviewed with Facebook for strategy roles? how tough are their case interviews?
Does anyone have the 2020 SHRM books for sale or to borrow? My job won’t contribute towards my certification. I’ve already paid for my test. I have the books from 2015 but I’d like to study from the 2020. I tried finding them online to purchase but sellers of affordable books aren’t responding.
