General curiosity... On job applications, how many of you fill in the voluntary form regarding race, sex, and gender?
NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
Damn, Trump just told our firm to stop diversity trainings or give up those federal contracts. Dude is straight evil.
One of my bosses doesn’t shut up about freaking diversity (which is extended annoying).So since I’m the only latino on the team, I’m going to use that on ms.weallbelong to get promoted.
is it a red flag to you if your decently sized mid law firm has never once mentioned pro bono opportunities? we don’t have any kind of diversity initiative either and obviously i know how i feel about THAT. but was wondering how weird this part of it is.
Anyone feel like it’s gender wars in the consulting bowl right now? I know we’ve linked to a couple of them but they just keep coming and the loudness of it is frightening
Black consultants (primarily in the US but question is open!) - what’s your honest perception of OW from an I&D / diversity point of view?
Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?
Would you confront a senior leader on inappropriate behaviour yourself (remarks about gender and race) or would prefer your coach to do that? What would be the merits / consideration that you should factor in?
Currently in a play on ATOS that might be interesting for some. It’s a biotech with its primary drug being endoxifen aimed at treatment for breast cancer. Company has no debt and $138M in cash. It’s been announced to be included in the Russell 2K so there will be a predictable movement of ETF inclusion close to June 25. It also still has a high short interest so potentially for shorts to be blown out. I’m currently in 25k shares @ 3.35 holding into the 25th. My price target is $20.

What is the legal ratio of adults:students in an ECSE inclusion setting? In a reverse mainstream setting? Are Title I PreK classrooms required to have a para and teacher? What is the ratio for that? What is the legal ratio of adults:students in a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
My agency puts on a big show about their diversity/inclusions/women’s equality efforts but for the most part its bullshit. The c-suite drinks their own koolaid and don’t even realize it’s all fake.

Is it diversity if you only hire minorities to work on diversity projects that make you, as an agency, look good? Maybe those people just want to work on stupid banner ads like their white coworkers
How do we feel about listening ethnicity in casting specs? Our clients say it’s important to ensure diversity, but is it counterproductive?
Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA
I'm glad we're having these conversations about race, gender, wages, etc in an reasonable way that doesn't involve flagging posts. As a black female it's hard to ask coworkers directly what (contd)
Anyone here do securities lit or white collar work? Would love to connect and learn more about the practice area.
At a B4 stressed but managing it. Partner passed me over for a sr manager but treats me like one (constantly managing multiple projects, driving his practice initiatives and driving 1-2 /$300-500k of proposals every month. Boutique is offering me the TC that I won’t make here for 3-4 years - same level, more focused scope. Also talking to a tech firm that will be a slight bump (10-15%) but likely 25% less work/stress. Worried a little bit about career progression. Thoughts?
Sitting with a college friend who is in KPMG and just bragged that she is enrolled in a pension plan sponsored by KPMG and it is separate than 401K . I doubt this . Can anyone from KPMG confirm?
Owner of a small agency, here. Am considering making an offer to a partner at Accenture/another MBB to come help build our digital transformation practice. Advice on this strategy and on my outreach?
How often do you seek career progression with respect to a promotion or a new job? Do you explicitly express your desire for promotion?
In your opinion which is the best level to move to industry? In tech strategy if it’s relevant.... having issues in relationship because of travel 😒
Handed the TSA agent my credit card while scanning my flight ticket ... we both were confused until I realized what I did ... happy fly day lol
PwC Director Sabbatical is a joke. They tell you it is 4 weeks, it is actually 3 weeks plus one week of your vacation, and good luck trying to take it.
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
Can you book flight, hotel for personal usage using company tools? Not going to expense them obviously, but is it ok?
Is there a path from FDD that leads to a realistic WLB? I want to start a family someday, but just don’t see how it’s possible to be a good spouse or parent with the time demands of this career. 3yrs of work experience if that matters.
Received an offer for a strategy manager position at a large media company for 135k + 15% bonus. Does this sound right? I have 3 YOE.
Got a LinkedIn message from a talent recruiter in India for Siftly looking to fill a role at a company in Tennessee. How exactly does this work? Spam?
Would it be weird if I reached out to someone who sort of triggered my interest in a career path? This someone has an internal C level position at my company.
If I got offered a position at a big 4 firm for indirect tax. What do you think the appropriate counter offer would be? Do you think they would accept my counter?
Is a year too soon to ask for a raise? If you've made a handful of things, some of them pretty cool, including a 360 campaign? Also...forgive my inexperience, but who do I ask about a raise?
Is it wise to leave a firm like ZS associates in for a backend role at Mckinsey. At ZS we get proper client side consulting role exposure but the mckinsey opening is more of a knowledge management type thing. So should I think of applying?
