How does Facebook hiring freeze/waitlist work? I've learned that there's a hiring freeze for E4 at Facebook. People who're on the waitlist, how are they selected and when do you think the hiring freeze will be lifted? #facebook #faang #softwareengineering
Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.

25. At MBB. Thought I wanted PE but I’m thinking FAANG PM type role might be better now. Ultimately I’d like to start my own business. Where are people who join PE 4-5 years down the line vs those who join FAANG?

Recruiter (in west coast) said on Monday he will provide an update later in the week if Im selected for a role I’ve been interviewing for the past 2 months. The wait is killing me. Called in sick because I was too anxious to do any work and lost all motivation. Should I reach out for an update now or wait til end of the day?
Finally got into Chicago after a bunch of delays in SFO, and my uber driver missed exit and the trip is now 20 minutes longer due to rerouting :(

Super bummed - took my health seriously this year, lost 40 pounds, found my love for running again, and was preparing to post a PR marathon in a couple weeks. My first day of tapering and I suffered a grade 3 ankle sprain. Now that my sob story is over - how do I stay healthy and relatively fit while being immobile for a bit? Do I just really need to focus on diet? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm.￼ All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?
Curious to know where folks are from and which state do you live in right now? (Ignore relocation because of Covid). I'll start, NJ > NJ

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring. I’ve been in HR now for about six years and have never had a mentor. I’ve been relying mostly on SHRM and other people in the company for feedback. Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
In discussions with an Infra fund ($1bn+AUM) to come across and lead their origination across the US (think director / VP type level). Any thoughts on Comp expectations at infra funds? I’d take a lower base for more carry/equity but really have no idea where to start. Have post graduate degree and 10 YOE in the infra space both consulting and operational.
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?

Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
