My team is trying to find a better way to track talent. We have an ATS we like for everything but tracking the talent pipeline. Anyone have good one off tools they use for talent pipeline tracking? Even better if it integrates with Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams, on this Friday, can kick rocks
My MIL (with whom I had a strained relationship) passed away in January, and there was a funeral in February. Due to COVID, they limited the number of in person attendees to 40 and had a zoom link. The family now wants to plan two more events for her across the country over the next 5 months. Are other people doing this? She was neither royalty or a president but a local school teacher so this feels both excessive and unhealthy to perpetuate this for 5 months.
I am the partner leading our local office lgbt group. What should I be doing to engage more with our people during this time? Zoom once a month only goes so far I think but I have run out of other ideas.
What are the best Product Management communities on Slack? I’d like to join a few and learn from others.
PWC people, I’m on a Zoom call with the head of your Northeast Region (among others). He just said in passing that the guy running Societal Engagement and Policy Solutions is probably the next CEO. Sound right? Thoughts on him?
Why is the hiring process in this industry so backwards. I'm moving cities and recruiters in the new city "won't consider me until I've settled and I'm local." We do have SKYPE ... f@#cking hell.
Moms with school-aged kids whose schools are doing remote learning through the fall - how can your teammates support you? As in, I’m a childless person who wants to help out my teammates w/ kids somehow, such as offering to do a zoom story time or something with the kiddos if parents are swamped and lesson teaching is falling on their (vs school’s) shoulders.
Is 200 Mbps (Verizon Fios) enough for two kids to do Zoom school and two parents to work from home (internet and email, not much zoom)?
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?
I’ve been out of touch with the current ad world for so long, I don’t know which NY agencies are considered the most creative. Of course, I realize answers will be subjective. Still it will be helpful to have a place to start. Sorry if I’m limiting my search for NY agencies. I know I can Zoom with any agency anywhere, but I prefer to meet in person to present a new business idea. Thanks for any suggestions.
Favorite Webex/Zoom fail?
Had no problem speaking in meetings in person. Can’t seem to get a word in edgewise on Zoom. Any advice?
At the end of the week I also end up with a bunch (50+) of open Outlook windows related to meeting invites. Basically, I look at my calendar, double click the invite then join the Zoom meeting. It takes me directly into the meeting and leaves the invite window open. Wash, rinse, repeat and by Friday there is literally one for every meeting I attended. Unfortunately, you can’t close them all together because it will ask you “Want to save your changes?” for every single one. Thoughts?

I am Taiwanese-American (woo!) and a first generation American. My parents speak fluent English and although I attended Chinese school when I was younger, I am no where near conversationally fluent (can understand some buT i can’t respond in Chinese) this is something that brings a lot of shame to me and worry in the future that I won’t be able to pass down my culture and language to my kids.

We rank firms on prestige a lot.
But how do the firms rank in terms of consultant likability?
I have money issues, despite making 140k TC and my partner making 70k, we struggle to come by comfortably. The mortgage, the car payments, credit cards.

It is sad and horrible… I think twice before adding those snacks into the cart. And I never dare to buy more than a weeks worth. Don’t even talk about marriage costs and the like
