Does anyone have any experience in dealing with teams that are boys clubs? My current team has been excluding me from meetings, relegating me to play a role that is lower than my tenure and basically treating me like an overpaid secretary. They’re all men who know each other well so I think that’s part of it, but have no idea how to handle this in a remote COVID world.

Are you at KPMG? LOL - that's the company's MO. I've experienced it at every single project, so at some point I really stopped giving a f*ck. After all, I am still getting compensated in accordance with my pay grade - regardless of the role the good ol' boys club assigns to me.

No, not KPMG. I’m new to my firm so not sure how rampant this is here. I’m just blown away that my team members who are the same seniority level think it’s ok to constantly ask me to schedule meetings or call other team members for them. It’s just so condescending and flat out rude to be honest

If they’re your level then push back
