Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
Was on a group call and discussing Team vs zoom. One partner mentioned Zoom security issues and another partner mentioned Zoom being a Chinese company and made a comment that “ that makes sense, you can’t really trust the Chinese” I am Chinese American and somewhat felt offended. Am I being too sensitive?
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
I can't wait for my seniors to ask me why I don't get the Skype mobile app. Same reason why I haven't given you my cell number. #nothanks #emailme #soiseeitmonday
My district has told me that I am not allowed to use any live video chats (Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc) with students so no one sues the district. Anyone running into the same problem?
Creatives, if I send you resources you asked for in an email or Slack and your response is to ask me send it to the PM instead, I immediately view you as a precious child. Don’t be a child.
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?
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 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.
We are supposed to have a Zoom faculty meeting next week (not all faculty at the same time). Who would've thought! 😂
Since Skype for biz merged with Teams, I can no longer do conference calls with my clients’ email domain, nor share my desktop with them... anyone knows how to rectify this?
Ladies, how do I handle this? I’m on a team with two other women, one of whom is a mom. She leaves early pick up her kids. My coworker and I work late to pick up the slack. It doesn’t feel fair

This is for the old timers. Is teaching now harder than when you started? With experience jobs are supposed to become easier. However, I started teaching when we still used chalkboards and attendance was hung by my door. I feel all these advancements that have supposedly made life easier has made our jobs harder.
Happy Friday everyone. Just wanted to check if anyone else is in the same boat. Recent agile promotion here, everyone mentioned $5k bonus and I was told I was getting it. I haven’t seen it…am I the only one?
When you’re comparing offers how you put a value against benefits like vacation allowance? Just calculate the value of a paid day as a % of base?
My job start date got pushed back until the winter, so I’m trying to find a restaurant or retail job to pass the time until then. Does anyone have experience with tailoring a consulting/professional resume for a service position? I have minimal service experience but a few years of desk jobs and internships and I’m not exactly sure how to leverage it
Lyft senior manager Strategy comp? Base / RSU / bonus (only seeing this for engineers, but not strategy - any insights?)
Does D give signing bonuses at SM level? Happy with base comp, but wondering if that was a valid way to negotiate
Can we start a union?
The Black Mirror Episode "NoseDive" is giving me chills. It is the Big 4 in a nutshell. You have got to get upratings from quality people. 4.5.
The only reason I'd want MBB is for the MBA sponsorship. So few companies these days sponsor them.

Heard Deloitte will start adjusting salary by city starting next year....will they be adjusting people down if they are currently overpaid (relatively)?
In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?
Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Interviewed at ZS, final round DAA position and haven’t heard back, its been a week now. I have heard that ZS extends offers fairly quickly to candidates. I’m assuming it’s a reject. Thoughts? ZS Associates
