Does the firm have the ability to actively monitor skype chats? Does the people consultant have the power to oversee or someone else? Just curious
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?
Tbh, I just start vigorously nodding my head on Zoom when I see the partner doing so. Idk what’s happening in these client calls
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
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.
My manager is really ticking me off. He stopped caring so I have to pick up his slack. I get why he is so tired but there's work to do.. how can I protect my hide without throwing him under the bus?
Thoughts on Zoom? Did a mistake to buy at $460 right after results. And it has been tanking since that day. Cut losses or hold? Thoughts please? Thanks.
Does anyone have advice about helping your kids through video conferencing anxiety? My 6 year old normally loves taking, happily volunteers to speak at school assemblies is completely freaked out by classroom zoom discussions. Says that “talking on a computer is weird” and he’s anxious to the point of tears.
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
How do you keep your convos in slack organized? I struggle with finding a specific discussion, even when I save it to my ‘saved items folder.’ I find it easier to keep track of emails. So what’s the best way of finding a specific convo within a channel?
When you're taking PTO and communicate you will be unreachable during that time due to personal reasons, so co-workers slide into your IG DMs with work chat because you don't respond via Slack or email 🥴
I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
New to recovery and had an intake call with an IOP program. They said all sessions will be on Zoom and I’m really nervous that I won’t connect to the program virtually. Anyone start rehab virtually?
There’s a bird outside my window that sounds exactly like a Microsoft Teams Ping. I’m all for animals but this bird has got TO GO.
Ok it’s been a while. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve seen over zoom while WFH.
Anyone with exit opportunity stories or experiences? How long did you stay in consulting, how much did you make, how much did you make with the new opportunity, what roles, etc
What do you usually ask/talk through in informal introductory calls with a company? Not necessarily looking to immediately go into a new job / interview, but want to know more about the company as I think through transitioning jobs in a few months/this summer.
I make about half of what the other folks on my team make. I trained my manager. And I'm 99% certain that I'm not going to get a promotion. I have excellent performance feedback. Advice?
Holding offer from acn CDO, decent salary but they mentioned they are lax on firing people if they aren't ready for promo. That's another way to say they don't promote as easily? Not sure what to do

What industry opportunities are available for a healthcare consultant with policy expertise and some experience in HIT? I have 5.5 YOE in consulting, 2 health related masters MPH Epidemiology and MSW Social Policy from an Ivy League. I’m don’t mind the WLB in consulting but I’m just tired of the environment and want to do something meaningful that pays well.

I've just been offered a job at a big 4. I've been sent an email for background verification with a link to internal job portal. I've been asked to fill out a form that includes past employers. TBC

I need help with my daily makeup routine/application. I'm looking for a natural smoky look a la Olivia Pope/Kerry Washington. Any recommended tutorials to help me re-learn how to apply? Prefer someone who gets to the point, talks about technique and keeps it simple. Bonus points if there's someone who helps you identify the best looks for your eye shape. Does this unicorn exist?
Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft
How do you calculate your day rate? (Sorry in advance—I know this has been posted before)
Agency moms! What’s your maternity policy? Do you get fully paid 3 months? Or more than that? What else did you negotiate for? I haven’t talked to HR yet but wanted to see options you took. TIA:)
TSA pre check at ORD T3 - splitting your line into a large one and a small one to get your ID checked does not speed up the process, and only slows down the process for the large one
Anyone interview with via? How is it
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
I want to buy a standing desk, but don’t want to compromise on looks. Does anyone have any recommendations of ones to purchase??
