From PwC bowl. I don’t think this is a widespread thing but want to unpack the idea of it. PwC is certainly looking at staff utilization for black employees to make sure they are getting put on jobs but that doesn’t mean better jobs. There are no saved opps for minorities, like wtf. And early promotion is definitely not a thing but could naturally happen when given more opportunity. It is insane to me that someone already privileged would even think of doing this to maintain their privilege.

When people get used to preferential treatment, equal treatment seems like discrimination.

But they don’t. That’s the sad part. There is no mysterious black only promotion lane.

How do you do the min amount of work while looking for new jobs? I mean, by nature, I am a mediocre worker but I hate it when ppl judge or look down on me (people pleaser). Therefore, I do a good enough job and it doesn’t raise eyebrows. This balance is really affecting my health 😂😢. First world problems are the WORST.

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)?

As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.
