I have an exploratory call with a recruiter to determine opportunities I’m interested in. It’s a Zoom call. Would you dress up for it?
Me with my video off on a 6:30 AM Zoom
What is the acceptable time frame to follow up with someone who is tardy for a zoom call? What’s the allowed grace period? Five minutes? Ten minutes?
You know what grinds my gears? When SM or above still don't know how to send a Skype call properly and make you type everything in manually... for a daily call, over the next year 😑😑
Y’all be letting these white people see y’all drinking on these virtual happy hour calls?
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Where are the office Halloween zoom pics???
Where are my SoFla people at? 25 M looking to have an intelligent conversation that isn't on zoom...
Zoom drinking games
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is
O.M.G! My co-worker texts me about my boss (annoying person). I responded via Skype and vented, BUT I sent the message to my boss! The name was above my friend's!!
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Did I miss the ”Ask a recruiter” session last week? Or have the wrong link? I opened the Zoom link and nothing for over 15mins?
I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
COVID helped us see that some meetings really could be emails. ZOOM helped turn those emails back into meetings. Ah, technology.
A man I work with (same age different department) frequently gives me compliments on how I look on Zoom. Like “you look great today” or “great outfit”. I don’t mind because I like him-like him, but I’m wondering if I should say anything since it’s in front of other people.
How accurate is Glassdoor when it comes to Deloitte Senior Manager salary? How are signing bonuses at that level?
What is a good suggestion for a weekend mom-baby/toddler date? Reconnecting with old college friends with toddlers/babies. Not sure what to suggest. Brunch? Morning walk?
Does Deloitte have any promotions with SPG or Marriott where we get some bonus points just for checking in? Heard EY and KPMG have something like that!
How many sick leaves does ACN have?
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Where is Mr. Trump during all this? Even Trump supporters must agree this guy is completely MIA and not showing any leadership or trying to bring a sense of calm or unity to the nation.
Is it a bad idea to join a first time VC fund as a Sr Associate as a PL at BCG? I expect itll be a massive decrease in comp (TC ~300k to ~150-180?). But its a topic thats interesting to me and the hours will be better
Curious about your thoughts on this one. I get why people maximize their 401(k)s, IRAs, etc for retirement. But what if your retirement investments get significantly reduced due to a stock market crash, or a banking/financial institution system failure (especially as people get close to their retirement age)? I mean with all the changes in the world, who is to say that these institutions are to be trusted? At the end of the day, your investments, paychecks, etc are just a number on a screen.
For those applied R1 (Sept + Oct time), when did you start using the MBA consultant service and for which services? State the consultant name and how much you paid as well if possible.

Hi everyone! I currently have an offer deadline coming up from a big 4, but I am waiting to hear back from Goldman’s CWS department on my Hirevue. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes them to get back to you after the Hirevue?
Please keep sharing and talking about the doom and gloom of NYC. That equals cheap real estate for us natives that can finally now start thinking about buying something. Please keep saying that NYC will never come back (and don't pick up any history book)... 🙏🙏🙏

First time diving with sharks. Judging from the scars, these girls are a bunch of freaks.
