Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.
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?
Watching the Golden Globes suffer “WTF is zoom?” and float zoom screens of actors in their homes next to each other....I feel for them. And also realize we have a weirdly useful skill these days.
Do y’all think Zoom is here to stay? Feel like Microsoft would be able to take them on using Teams video chat function (since most companies have office and teams already). What’s their competitive edge?
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
Some of my clients have had a blurred zoom background. It’s definitely not static; the background blur moves as their cameras move around too. Anyone know what this is?!
How do I take zoom interviews if my office is mandating me to be back in almost every day? It’s tough to schedule all interviews on my 2 remote days. Is it in poor taste to prop up my phone and take the interview in a conference room on a mobile device?
Anyone else have someone in their life / work or personal/ who continually brags about “knowing how to set up a zoom meeting”? It’s month three of the pandemic. We all know how to set up a zoom meeting Karen.
moms- coming in as a partner level from outside the firm. what are female@partners wearing on zoom calls? casual? put together but semi casual? full blazer- suit situation? Thx
Google Classroom and Zoom was on the fritz all morning. Lord, I have never worked so fast at multitasking of talking to a few students on Zoom, the rest of the students through Go Guardian, texting parents through ClassDojo, and calling parents. I was only able to teach math and science 🤣
After 12+ years in FTE roles both agency and brand side in strategy/brand marketing/social strat roles. Thinking about taking it freelance. But I’ve never done freelance or consulting before - ever. Would love to connect with someone who’s done this (or does it on the side) - would anyone be open to do a Zoom call with me to answer questions/give me advice? As a token of my appreciation, I’d send you a Drizly (or Seamless, DoorDash, or UberEats) gift card so we could make it a happy hour!
Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
Anyone feel almost shamed or snarky comments are said when you do your job or don’t slack like some of the coworkers? I don’t want to be rude but also want to let them know it’s not cool.
Skype ping noise = ptsd
Does anyone have suggestions for virtual happy hour games/activities? What has your team been doing, and what has worked best and gotten the most people engaged in participating?
Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10% Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly? Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
I was offered $108k for a designer role at chiat\day LA. Is that good? Should I have asked for more given today’s market? I’m looking for reasons to give up my freelancing lifestyle and was hoping for a title bump, which I didn’t get. I’m super unfamiliar w the advertising market and used to be a product designer. Took a pay cut to do more creative work, but if I can get back the salary I had, I would.
If I'm Delta Platinum, will I get any sort of status match from American? Usual Thursday flight got eliminated
How much is a reasonable salary for an in house counsel in Chicago, 6 years experience? At a company of 1,500+ employees. I am seeing a huge varied number online.
After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
Another day on my new project
Good news for everyone no matter where you are politically: New research indicates COVID immunity could last more than a year, especially after vaccination.
Hi all, question about 163j. So we elect 163j to get rid of the interest limitation. I dont see the difference between deducting interest at partnership level vs partner level. Any thoughts?
Anyone else currently dealing with the fact that their job/project is exacerbating the deterioration of their mental health?
Any idea on how to redeem remaining travel funds for Southwest without booking flights. I have around 1000 dollars expiring by 7th September and I do not have any plans of flying anywhere till the end of October.
Heard that American Airlines gets 80% of its business from 10% of their customers. Other 90% only fly once a year. That explains having to do the safety thing every time... 👈👉💺
If Leaving FDD (deals advisory) for an FP&A job at the senior associate level, should I expect a base salary decrease?
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
PwC 🐠, what happens if you choose to buy tickets with ⚠️ on Concur? United's prices are really low this past few weeks, making my Delta flights always marked with ⚠️
When does the 60 day grace period start - after lay off announcement or after last severance paycheck? Thanks
