Start using Teams and reevaluate your statement

Yes. Very skeptical of teams when we started using it but it’s pretty good. There’s some things that don’t quite work, but enjoy it on the whole

I love Slack. Too bad KPMG doesn’t use it.

It’s great

Teams sucks and is total trash. Call and video quality are just as good as Skype hence it’s Skype 2.0. You sound like the guys who marketed vista as the latest and greatest windows update.

So I had a Zoom presentation to a partner and a manager. The whole time the partner had a smirk on his face. Even the manager noticed. He didn’t understand why he was smirking and I said maybe

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
