Anyone work at Marvell? Starting a contract role and want to know how the Conversion Process works :) also what internal systems does Marvell use? Microsoft Teams?
Zoom interview etiquette... have some IB interviews coming up, obviously very professional groups. Backdrop options are my bedroom, a wall with a row of framed comic books, or just a blurred background... leaning towards the comics since it may spur conversation but would like some thoughts from the broader group
Inspired by the Analyst who just faked connection issues because he spaced out when the partner was talking - I propose a new version of the Turing test where you turn off Zoom video and try to make weird noises / skips to convince your colleagues your internet is shot and you keep missing it when they talk to you
Do/can all admitted students join the admitted students Slack, or only those that have accepted the offer? This might be obvious but want to confirm
Can I use the birthday excuse to slack today? Lol.
I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff. I used to just show up to those to be a good “firm citizen,” but I’d really love to see another lawyer in person instead of through a Zoom call. If I ran into one of my old classmates from law school, I’d probably hug them right now.
Have NYC-based employers with hybrid schedule been lenient for office workers? In light of crime trends, pandemic, work-life priorities, I'm trying to assess if taking a hybrid NYC job (as someone working remotely from NJ now) is worth the headache. Potential new employer says 3 days in a week, but during my interview process, I only met with one person who was in the office during my Zoom interview.
Hey folks. Still can’t meet up IRL, but the NYC Advertising & Junior Creatives bowls are hosting a Q+A today at 5 PM. 2 CDs will discuss their experiences in the industry during previous recessions. Details, Zoom link and cal invites here: https://joinfishbowl.com/post_lcfeyb
Does anybody else think that the Wharton Slack & Discord groups are kinda quiet/inactive compared to admit groups from other schools?
My kids are back in virtual school for the near future. I cannot do this. Any tips/tricks that worked last time? Our local Y had an “in person virtual” program last year, so I escaped most of this, but my daughter was quarantined a few weeks ago, kept coming into zoom calls (a la the BBC guy) not paying attention to class etc. she is 6. Im less worried about my 8 y/o.

I gotta say, I'm really tired of getting prepped for my endless zoom meetings, staying on camera, and looking engaged while my clients look bored and text each other. It's just plain rude and I'm over it.
I recently returned to work from maternity leave. I am working from home while the nanny cares for the newborn. Does anyone have a good headset w/ mic that they would recommend for work Zoom conference calls? Looking for something with good noise cancelling capability that could help reduce the sound of baby’s cries in the background.
It's happening! Save the date on your calendars with this link. Let's get to know each other and chat a little about how we can pivot to celebrate Pride in new ways given the current circumstances: https://zoom.us/j/272838105
Anyone else have a Zoom face?
I’m a senior associate. I was asked to participate on an associate interview for our firm. I’ll be one of two associates (plus partner) on the Zoom. In the associate to associate context: What questions should I ask? Anything in particular I should touch on? What would you like to know from an associate?
Looking for on-the-go working and hence internet for 3 months- Colorado and Montana. As I will be at remote places with no guarantee of internet, any suggestions on reliable internet plans for video zoom calls?

For Big 4 partners in the US - do you generally support your firm's leadership (strategy and its execution) or do any of you feel like it's disconnected from the line partner reality?
Does anyone else read the partner comments here and convince themselves they recognize the writing style
Why are CDs getting jobs left and right? And us measly juniors have next to no openings. Is it because many upper level creatives were laid off?
My dentist told me I had to get braces or gum grafts. I had braces when i was in middle school and the thought of having them again, is making me a bit nervous. Thoughts on people at work with braces?
Amex Platinum vs Chase Sapphire Reserve?
Alternative titles to ‘BI Analyst’?
I’m leaving consulting after 4YOE, going for manager next year if I stay. Been offered a BI Analyst role for great pay but feels like a career step back.
Main reason I’m unhappy with ‘BI Analyst’ is because I don’t want to be just a SQL+dashboard analyst but rather drive more predictive / DS analytics in python/R etc.
I’ve expressed this to them and they were excited. I still feel the title doesn’t reflect that?
Can I negotiate title? Title suggestions?
F5 network , Rakuten , nagarro which to choose
I recently got an offer in OCI as Principal SRE. How the work life balance with OCI? Any idea what kind of work does an Principal SRE performs day to day in OCI? Also how about the oncall support.. like is it on rotations?
How does everyone cope with work stress?
I’ve been at my company for almost 6 years, 4 as a Solutions Engineer and 2 as a Implementation Engineer.
I had my annual review today and was disappointed to find out that I will not be getting a promotion to a senior title and I will not get a significant raise (3% at most).
I was waiting on this review to decide whether or not I should move on and it looks like I definitely should. I’ve already applied to a couple roles but has anyone been in a similar situation and have any tips? TY!
Does anyone else think Kate Spade will release a bigger sale than 40% or put more bags on sale? I'm looking at this one and it's relatively new but I feel $200 is still too much for such a small bag
Got a big4 offer for audit senior position, CPA with 3.5 YOE in audit, offered $97k plus $6k sign on bonus. HCOL location. Is this about right? TIA!
Earlier weekend were almost static and boring
Is weekend kisi exciting adventure pr chalne ka soch rha hu. Anyone in the same boat?
Share suggestions if u have some other plans
Is the SPHR or PHR license necessary to pivot into human capital? I have a MBA from a Top 15 school. Any thoughts?
Went on an interview on Friday and they told me verbally that they will be putting together an offer. Now, the recruiter just reached out and said that he thinks his colleague will be reaching out to me with a verbal offer. Should I run or is this normal?
Anyone have any insight on what it’s like to work for Lockton? I have a call with a recruiter from there tomorrow for an account analyst position.
According to new data released Friday, employers cut 140,000 jobs in December, signaling that the economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic is backtracking. Digging deeper into the data also reveals a shocking gender gap: Women accounted for all the job losses, losing 156,000 jobs, while men gained 16,000.
Hi everyone! I need some advice. My position at my place of employment recently got eliminated due to organization restructure (new CEO) and I’m searching for a new job. A good friend of mine connected me with an old friend of theirs whose team is hiring and I have a call scheduled tomorrow to discuss the role. I’ve never really networked and would love to get advice on what I should ask and how to express interest in role without sounding desperate. Thank you!
