What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.
I just had to turn off my laptop and walk away for the night because I am on the verge/already breaking down a bit. I know the rest of my team had to work later (I peaked on slack) and i feel super guilty and embarrased about not helping. This is the first time I've gotten to a point like this and although I know mentally I needed to do it, I can't stop reading messages from coworkers as stabs at me for ditching.
I love how even Slack’s servers were like, “damn man, I really don’t want to go to work this morning.”

Do you ever have parents sitting with their child on one of your zoom classes? Anything weird or awkward ever happen?
I don't understand the obsession of always having your camera on on Zoom, especially when people call you out on it in front of a group. Or maybe I'm just weird
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?
Just got off a zoom call where the CFO pulled out his JUUL and ripped a few. Don’t think he knew he was on webcam
Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!
Microsoft Teams. Why?
Sometimes I feel the need to correct someone else in our Zoom meetings, but it seems rude to just start talking over them and no one pays attention to the texts. What's the etiquette?

Do you call people via Skype/Teams as you would on your phone (no warning) or do you ping/chat first to ask if they are available to call?
I trust the cracked out hobo outside my apartment more than the mute button on Skype/Lync.
What are the zoom happy hours for work like? I have one today that I don’t want to attend but feel like I have to
When you and your manager randomly geek out about VR over Skype instead of finishing up a deliverable - Friday's, am I right? 😎
Is there a law I’m not aware of that mandates that every spot about a Zoom call, if you must create one, has to include a tangential bit about being on mute?
I feel a split in Big 4 about working hours. If one gets in at 8 and leaves at 5, or at 830 & leaves at 530 etc, why do some people who come in at 9/930 get upset people don’t stay until they leave?
Just landed in airport nearest client city but the rental car agency (hertz) is closed. Client and hotel are a one hour drive. Am I able to even pick up a car at this point?

EY's new expense policy means no one (not even frequent travelers) can reimburse Pre Check or Global Entry... used to be part of Platinum AMEX... such nonsense.
If heading into a salary increase conversion with a partner, what are some good online sources of evidence to show current market value of my salary compared to other big4 or tech consulting firms?
LA ladies, is $100k a comfortable salary to live on? I’m moving in October from NC and I’m not sure what to expect. 26 yo, 3 YOE, no kids
"Almost 40% of millennials work every day of their vacation" No offense but that's just f#*$ing stupid. Stop that.
Help. Feel like since covid the work is extremely transactional, I’m bored, and all of my coworkers are leaving.

My company is looking to boost the office culture outside of the typical happy hour/free snacks/food. What are some fun ideas in and outside of the office you’ve seen or done?
Help me! Naming a start up coffee company. Purchasing coffee directly from farms, roasting on our own, supplying directly to consumers. Extra points for a spiritual name.
How far into implementation and execution do you get as a strategist (and what's your specialty). I notice social strategist tend to get way more into the executional portion, even writing copy etc. whereas brand strategy tends to roll off once the briefing process is done.
