8 people. Not sure how to schedule something.

Hangouts >>>> Zoom because Zoom free will automatically cut out after 40 minutes for meetings with over 3 guests. Unless, of course, that 40 minute cutoff is a benefit, not a liability 😉

Zoom premium is $14.99 for a month and then it holds up to 100 people and doesn’t have a cut off!

Zoom!

Am I the only one looking forward to returning to the office on at least a part-time basis? By the amount of posts I see about people applying for remote roles or wanting to quit if they have to return to the office it seems like the minority view. I’m tired of talking to a screen all day. Bring on the energy of in-person brainstorms, internal reviews, and presentations to clients who are in the room.

How do you subtly let a coworker sitting near you that they are overly loud? He conducts all his zoom meetings at his desk and I have to listen to his conversations.

I'm 8 years into my career in the same industry. Years ago I was the person who knew ever answer and was considered very sharp/the company "swiss army knife". Ever since 2020, I feel like I lost part of my brain. I am not longer sharp, I have a hard time grasping new info and I have panic attacks before every zoom call. Is anyone else dealing with this? I don't know if it's because I work from home now or what but i'm paranoid that I will never climb out of this fog. :( Suggestions welcome!

I love the company I work at but they are forcing everyone to return to office after two years working fully remote and the most successful eight quarters the company has had in years. People are leaving left and right forcing me and other team members to pick up the slack. For many reasons I do not want to return to office and they are standing firm on their policy. It has forced me to consider other opportunities. Anyone have any recommendations on remote opportunities?

Has anyone dealt with a manager who seems threatened by you? I have this manager who doesn’t want me reaching out to any higher ups.

She all but accused me of going over her head. Very controlling!

I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
