"At Accenture we have an unwavering commitment to equality, inclusion and diversity. We have zero tolerance for hatred, bigotry and racism of any kind." -Julie Sweet
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.

Hello! Does anyone have any feedback they’d like to share on BIP (Business Integration Partners) specifically the Milan/Rome offices? I really like the way the firm presents itself online, though the lack of diversity in their leadership is astonishing… Thank you!

When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
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!
Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...

Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
Hello. What's the best agency so far to go to when it comes to diversity and actual inclusion for a POC creative? Im pretty done with POC creatives being put on banner projects and the white teams getting the bigger stuff.
Hello, I am dying to know the average age and gender ( even non Binary) of people in this bowl. Just curious , I will start - Female 33Y
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
In addition to the need for more diversity and inclusion of POC, what are your thoughts re:ageism? The industry doesn’t seem to have taken any meaningful steps to address this issue
Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?
Major crush. She is brilliant: intelligent, insightful, confident, kind, a champion of diversity, funny. But, id never overstep our workplace boundaries by extending an invite to drinks. Sighhh.
Hello all! Can a New York registered attorney file a diversity jurisdiction lawsuit in MA federal court while residing outside the US, and not running an office in NY? Any thoughts? Thanks.
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
Helping mother in-law get back in the workforce. She hasn’t really held down a stable job while raising her kids. Any suggestions if types of jobs to go after?

Just curious, for those that have 1 yr OPT and at EY, PwC and KPMG, what do you do if you dont get selected in the h1b? I heard they dont allow day 1 cpt?
Can someone explain how they prioritize IRA after hitting the income limit so it is no longer tax deductible? I believe it becomes lower priority than HSA and 401k. Thanks!
I’d be curious to hear about people’s chargeable/billable hours. What are your goals vs actual, best/worst years, etc. I’ve only ever worked at one regional firm so my knowledge is fairly narrow.
Thank you Delta!
Has anyone completed a case study with IBM? How was it? This will be my first! Any tips would be great.

Moving to the bay as a delta diamond. Anticipate lots of East coast trips in my future. What airline should I be trying to get a status match with? Should I stick with delta?
Had my first interview this morning and the individual was wearing a mask. Kinda odd, but I guess this is the new norm. ￼￼￼
How many of you stay in corporate apts vs hotels? Just signed a corporate apt lease in a modern luxury building with great amenities. Same airfare and meal policy. Benefits outweigh losing the points?
Any quick fixes on burnouts? Have been working at least 200% since September last year. I have multiple big deadlines all due today, and I have been writing slides while crying for the last 2 hours – it’s just slow and painful. Need to pull myself together and just do the work because well, I need the job, and in this economy no one else is hiring.
Is there an unspoken code that MBB doesn’t discuss salary? I feel like visibility into their whole comp package isn’t accessible at all
L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
