Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
So. Much. Diversity.
My company did an analysis of the diversity of our outside counsel based on hours billed and spend. Women billed more than half the hours but were far less than half the spend 😒
How are your “support functions” (HR, marketing, finance, etc) treated? We are second class citizens, with less: training, growth opportunities, inclusion in firm leadership calls/gatherings, etc.
Starting full time at McKinsey in November. Curious to know what it’s like for fellow gender non-conforming folk, as well as non-binary and trans folks at the firm (or as consultants in general!) Are there any trans/non binary people at your firm/office location, regardless of your firm? Just trying to gauge what kind of world I’m stepping into.
Another win for diversity!
Lol. Glad to see DE&I leadership at Disney is so diverse. https://www.cbr.com/disney-diversity-councils-bob-chapek-bob-iger/
Does anyone have a way to help me learn and better understand gender issues? ( a good youtube video to watch- a PD link, anything. ).
What's the worst case of marital infidelity you've witnessed at your firm? Offender's gender and level within the firm, + how you/others who knew reacted and handled it?
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
TFW you are so engrossed in your phone you realize you walked in and sat in a stall of the other gender's restroom ....then panicking to figure out how to leave.
I have an outlook folder named 'crap’ to auto route useless communications from certain people/ groups. That list is now 20+. I guess it’s time to create ‘crap 2’ for diversity
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Anyone have first hand experience working at Ryan, LLC? Pay/Culture/Leadership/Diversity etc..
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
I was told by a PPED in NY today that the reasons I'm not up for partner is needing to lose weight, not being female or a diversity candidate, and not having the right family image (married with kids)
I get nervous when I have to communicate project status in huge conference calls. Any tips?
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Any fish out here that have transitioned from a staff attorney to an associate role? If you have, what was your path and what all did you do?
Hi folks. Could you please share your experience about your partner interview at Deloitte?
Chase Sapphire reserve statement credit benefit is great. Seems like all qualifying purchases made in last 3 month can be redeemed for statement credit using points at 1.5cents per point. And I dont think you lose the points you earned from those purchases after you redeem for statement credit.
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? Appreciate any input! 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially Chinese culture presence
Any ACN DXB 🐠 able/ willing to share SM TC ballpark range in S&C please? (Base + bonus). TIA 🙏
Just found out I'm getting a 4 and promotion to Senior for advisory. What kind of raise / promo bonus can I expect % wise?
Back in office and want to lose the covid weight (not much, but I am petite so just feel uncomfortable with the added pounds). Mentioned it to colleagues. Colleague who is in good shape (male) told me a few days ago he could do a program for me, and found a gym close to where we both live for us to go to, Is it weird to go with him? I probably shouldn’t think this but somewhere in my head I am thinking.... do I want to be in gym gear around this guy? Haha
I’ve been in usdc for less than a year and I like the work for the most part but I’m really feeling not great about my salary. If I found a competing offer do you think usdc leadship would try to retain me given I’ve been here for such a short amount of time?
Folks any insights on Engagement Manager vs Cloud PM roles in the PSO org? Pros and cons. And what’s the comp range that one can expect at L6 or L5 level.
Supposed to be moving to France from the US in a few weeks for a new job, it’s been six months in the works of getting the visa situation handled. With this coronavirus now, I’m afraid (cont)
What are the best ways to negotiate one's salary? Ideally time it right after a successful campaign or project?
Recently just swapped big4’s mainly for money / focus on work. Would it be career suicide to move to Arthur D Little (HCLS strategy), for another 40% raise..? Trying to talk myself out of it but the work, team, and comp seem appealing
What kind of house can I afford with 100K in cash, 110K salary, and no debt besides 500-1000 a month for food/fun? I live in SoCal
