When on a client zoom call with another consulting firm and seeing the same pain in their eyes makes me feel better about my pain.
Do you ever have parents sitting with their child on one of your zoom classes? Anything weird or awkward ever happen?
Me on a 6am Zoom meeting
I like to toggle between fully touched up appearance and not at all on Zoom, just to remind myself…
What is a fun/dramatic tv show to watch for a zoom date? We already had one date several weeks ago. Preferably something interesting but also something we can talk over. Thanks for the suggestions!
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
Anyone else slack off during the week and now you have to work tonight to get stuff done for a Monday morning meeting?
How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
When you always dial into Skype calls because of a broken computer and everyone thinks you're sus :(

I am a level 3 counselling student. Please note that means their are limitations to my work, there is a supervisor to support me. I was wondering if anyone would like to meet via zoom for a 4-6 week session of 30 minute helping sessions? It's free, and it is confidential. I am a woman, 30, and obviously in advertising.
How are you all telling your project leads that you are leaving if you aren’t close? Do you just send an email or ask for a Zoom call? Do you tell them before or after HR?
Microsoft Teams should have a “cooldown” feature, when someone splits a single sentence into 7 separate messages, they get a message “sorry, you’re doing that too much. please try again in one minute” There’s nothing more annoying than those people who hit the enter key between every three words and all your devices explode with notifications
Anyone know any good local bartenders/bars who are doing cocktail making classes via zoom? Hoping to organize an event for a group that I’m part of. We would pay obviously.
Does your company provide enterprise zoom licenses? I’m shocked at the number of firms I’ve seen that do not. Microsoft Teams and WebEx are pretty poor substitutes
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
I want to demo a mobile app via a Zoom conference call. Any suggestions for a mirroring app that I can use to do that?
Currently freaking out. I just got an offer from a startup that I plan on accepting but in the offer letter it includes that it’s contingent on passing a drug test. I took edibles three times over the past seven days (not daily) after going on a one+ month cleanse before this because the other company I was interviewing with I knew drug tested, and since I didn’t get it and was frustrated that’s how I chose to cope. What do I do? Do I delay signing the offer as long as I can?
What are MBB offices like? Are they similar to Big 4 offices? Why have I never seen 'McKinsey' written on a building like I see with Big 4
A month ago my boss told me I was getting a promotion and a raise. My raise was effective May 15th, and it has been reflected in my pay. He told me to keep it on the down low since there were no(cont)

Wow, LAX. 30 mins for an uber. Taxi line across the terminal. Guess I'll be hanging out here for a while... at least the weather is beautiful!
Anyone know the comp for Accenture Talent & Organization Manager? DC Office. 5 years mix of consulting and industry w/MBA.
If coming from a non-target school, should I mention that I got into deferred M7 MBA on my resume. I'm trying to lateral right now but I'm not sure how helpful the "better branding" is for this process. Sidenote: If any T2 firms are hiring laterals, I would love to chat.
A-game questions to ask a principal in a quick coffee chat? Recruiting for MBA summer internship.
Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
