Yes in big4 since there are no women in a particular leadership position and since they have to show diversity, a woman who is less exp than me was promoted. This is not the reason i made up but was communicated internally.

But she resigned 3 months after getting promoted and I resigned few months later and then I was promised I will get that promotion but I decided to move out anyway.


Women in the tech industry looking at this post like....duh. I have had a manager literally say I was never going to get married if I continued the work schedule I had now, even though he was in charge of setting the schedule. The double standards are crazy.


Last year ACN actually gave many promotions to women and people with disabilities in india to increase their diversity numbers. I know many men who got lost out and this year some of them were promoted


As a woman, yes. I never thought I would still face such a situation in my career. Not to brag but I'm even more qualified and efficient than any of my male colleagues. I just can't with the double standard. How about you?


Yes, coming from a community that is know to be poor. I felt discrimination left and right from colleagues who were better off, (not by a big margin) but a margin that is significant enough to tell that there is a difference in lifestyle. I felt alone starting out but when I started to gain money it changed.


Yes. I have a disability and I have faced discrimination. I was wrongfully terminated. It really sucked.


I feel sorry for what happened! Hope you are stronger now.

Senior leader resignation tips? I landed a brand side role with a big pay bump / benefits 🥹 Am currently in a leadership role at an agency reporting to my ceo.

Any tips to navigate resignation?

I don’t get all the whining.

We’re so freaking privileged.

We make 8-10 times less what partners make at the peak of their careers, at entry level, sitting in a lukewarm office 3x a week.

Sure, the 80 hour weeks are long, but on top of our massive 5 figure salaries after taxes & loan payments, we get $25 a month off at Equinox, free Costco snacks, etc.

The single partner who has to leave their kids to sleep at their exes’ house because they have to micromanage their staff gets to complain.


I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?

Hi - this is a long shot, but I’m up for lease renewal and I negotiated a renewal rate over email with one of the leasing office staff.

I hate going to someone’s place and making out gets pushed to try and go further too soon. I don’t always feel like going out for a drink or eating, but it seems like going to someone’s place as it gets colder is the easier option if we like conversation. I feel like guys are just waiting for their moment to initiate sex & I’m often telling them I’m not ready yet (this is within first 3 dates). Is it common to initiate this early for a serious relationship?
