I know that "Get with It" is an idiom, but couldn't find it on this website. What does it mean? Thanks.
To "get with it" is a somewhat informal idiom meaning to catch up on a situation, understand what's happening or be up to date with trends. It's a BIT old-fashioned but not extremely so. I think I would only use it being silly/ironic!

*At the office*
