Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
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.
Getting ready to attend a few diversity/tech/women’s conference at target schools. Any advice from previous attendees on attire, general questions, advice, etc.?
So. Much. Diversity.
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
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.
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?
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
Seriously hoping these numbers will get better https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-09/dimon-calls-jpmorgan-a-black-diversity-leader-numbers-disagree
I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish. Why is it if the internet is down, computer or TV is acting up, it is my fault because I have a penis? This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
What are other people doing to drive diversity in leadership? I am hiring below me but want to hire at my level. Where do you source outside your network?
wtf does a "chief diversity officer" do exactly? forgive my dumb white ass but besides recruiting multicultural people and maybe hosting some events, is there really place for a c-suite role here?
What will happen if i put number too high on the salary expectation coloumn? Altough the recruiter reach me first.
Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
AlixPartners fish, I am expecting an offer for SVP in the digital practice. I need to give them my comp expectation today. Currently M at B4 with 15 yrs in industry and 2 yrs in consulting. What is the total comp (base+ bonus) that I can ask for? What sign-on bonus is typical? Thanks in advance AlixPartners
Anyone already work out an optimal combo for a couple that each consults on earning? We aren’t super advanced so basic choice is either both go Marriott, or split and one go Hyatt and Hilton
I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.
Anyone in KPMG FDD want to refer me for an experience associate position in San Fran?!? Would like to connect before to go over some items as well.
Are all IT Audit ( Big 4?Risk assurance, PwC DAT, PwC Tech Risk) have a year long busy season? I am curious as to my firm busy season is now really “busier season” because we have been legit busy all year
￼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? ￼
Anyone here know anything or someone who works at TCS (Tata Consulting Services)? Have an informational interview with them and don’t know anyone who has worked with them before
What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.
Can anyone from PwC audit practice share the holiday timeline/firm shutdown schedule during December-January? I am about to join the firm but don’t have all the details yet. Planing a trip during Christmas time. Thanks in advance.
What are some atypical interview questions you’ve asked or been asked? The one that caught me most off guard, though an easy answer was, “What would you do if you weren’t doing advertising?”
Myers Briggs personality test.... have you taken it? Enneagram? Whats your type? INTJ 1w9 here. 👇🏼 clearly why i’m in this role
We want to have a happy hour for this bowl on Wednesday - does anyone have a Zoom Pro or business account that is willing to share the love so we aren't capped at 40 min?! Want to see all of you!
Am I being overworked/underpaid as a first year associate at a midsize firm in Chicago? ($67,5 salary, 2100 billable hours) it feels like a good starting point but I’m uprooting my life to start here
Really feeling defeated about trying to change my career to accounting...considering my choice. I have a masters in accounting, but the CPA exam is really giving me problems. Advice?
It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
How many interviews is too many for a job? Company wanted 6 interviews and a case study presentation and I just dipped it’s too much. Is this unreasonable?
