I was talking to a female VP on my team right outside of a mtg we were about to enter. A male on my team who is at my level says "these two are late, too busy talking about purses." I snapped real quick "yeah we're not gonna do that sexist bullshit." I often think about how I probably would have kept my mouth shut if he was higher up.

Department head once 'jokingly' referred to me as a call girl...in front of three senior female clients no less. Gross. As if the fact that he was a total hack wasn't embarrassing enough to the agency.

At my last job, they were moving all of the creatives in a room together instead of individual offices to encourage collaboration. While I didn't have a problem with the idea in theory, it turned out that the only male creative was allowed to stay in an office because no one wanted to work with him (attitude). So that room inadvertently got dubbed the "girl power room"... rewarding the guy with the worse attitude with his own office. 🙄 I've also been on multiple photo/video shoots with directors that really have no filter and spent way too much time ogling the talent and making obscene comments. They had 0 chill around me and it was disgusting. It got to the point where I wouldn't even wear a skirt or dress to work because I was afraid of the comments they'd make behind my back.

Yes. I had a male Exec Producer once say "so decisive" to me when I was just agreeing with someone. I asked another male coworker afterwards to get his perspective, "do you think I'm indecisive"? He said "no" and I could tell he knew what I was referring to. I later slacked this EP and told him to not speak to me that way. Told him that he and I haven't worked together, so he doesn't know me or how I work, and that I am quite decisive. Told him when he says things like that in front of my peers, it makes it look like I am indecisive, which is inappropriate on his part. He was all apologetic, but I seriously doubt he meant it. He was probably more worried about covering his ass than changing his behavior.

Talent unexpectedly held me inappropriately close and forced me to dance with him while my team, client team, photographer's team, AND his management looked on and laughed. I was visibly uncomfortable, so embarrassed and felt so violated, and one of the senior clients told me "that's just how he is." The incident was recorded and played at a company meeting as a "highlight" so I could relive my shame and humiliation in front of my entire agency. Boys will be boys.

Hey folks, are there any onsite opportunities within Deloitte? I have been in the firm for 3 years but I don't see anyone getting onsite. If anyone wants to change the country due to any personal reasons, and is interested to continue their career in Deloitte, is it possible to check with the leadership or is there any different route?
