A recruiter is trying to sell my firm to a friend of mine as if it were the best firm in the world. Gold mine meets gravy train. Should I tell her the truth (I hate it and they’re lying) only if she asks me?

Defo be truthful, can’t see any downside to that.


Tell her the truth if that’s your friend


She should have come to you anyway to get that referral bonus


Where does your firm fall in rankings? V20? Asking because I’m nervous my recruiter is selling me on a firm that may not be the best 😬

What is it with HR in agencies these days? Do they seriously control creative hiring? What happened to conversations and showing work.


what do you think the demographics of this app are? feels like a lot of white ppl...which makes sense given the industry. any of the main thread convo answers are always so irrelevant to me, a lot of answers from what seems like middle aged white dudes

Hi All, My sister has cleared all the rounds in Accenture. HR contacted her today to negotiate the salary. My sister asked for 8LPA FP. HR said the max fixed pay they could offer is 7.5LPA. My sister told she would think and get back in few minutes. Within 5 minutes, HR moved the candidature status to “on hold” due to budget constraints. None of the HRs are answering the calls. What can i expect? TIA I am feeling worse as i advised my sister to tell HR that she would get back. :(


I had to explain to my overlords why we can't use the phrases "rub one out" or "pound it out." They might think I'm a degenerate because they sent me texts with quotes from scripture.

I'm on my way to being a female boss. But I have a question about how to really support female bosses. If I have a female manager who is not good. Like really horrible. How do y'all suggest I help her get better? Managing up, ok; but do you have specific examples of managing up that have helped you grow as a manager?


I’m curious to know how big the wage gap truly is... what’s your sex, age, title, and location?

I think my partner is making my eating disorder worse. It seems like he is very conscious of weight or at least looks, and I feel like he often tries to deter me from eating (like if I mention a late lunch he'll reply that we're having dinner soon so to hold off). I'm not sure if he is even aware of it, but he knows about my issues so it makes me wonder. My ED also runs rampant so it could be all in my head. Does anyone have experience dealing with this? I want to say something but not sure how.


Would love to hear what coaching models other places are using. We are using Jim Knights Impact Cycle model and we love jt. Any thoughts?

For interviews outside of consulting (think internet, ecommerce) what do you wear? I’m thinking of going with a navy suit and heels. No hose. Is that too much?
