Many hotels specifically state that their lounges cannot be used for business meetings. I've certainly done it, but I also recognize that my team does not own the lounge.

No - they’re either headed directly to a client’s office...or going to their rooms after having left the clients...in either scenario, neither of those places are ideal for client-centric work convos...

We all have done that

I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?

Someone could write a thesis paper on toxic masculinity and rape culture based solely off data gathered from the posts in this bowl. I knew it was bad, but hearing all these stories (and worse -- how the OP is often unsure if she should be upset about whatever incident) makes my skin crawl! Silver lining is seeing so many women affirm and validate other women's experiences and remind them they don't need to tolerate behavior like this.
