I'd also caution against using your experience as the indicator for a company's diversity. Notice I referenced their actual diversity data (which didn't even break down diversity by gender within non-whites, or Asian Americans) *as well* as my own direct experiences. I also interviewed a variety of other leaders... lastly and respectfully, I suggest that you as a white man may consider what counts as "very diverse". I'm not hating on Accenture, I'm just saying it's a majority white company and it's just as racist as anywhere else. It isn't modeling anything in that regard, but no one is lol.

@A10 if my comments made you feel like I believe you're less than, my apologies. Not my intention whatsoever. I'm simply saying Accenture's data affirms that they aren't diverse. They know it. That's why they came out with that whole initiative on hiring more black and Hispanic people, remember? I'm not offended or mad or anything - as a minority who is looking at the facts *and* who rarely sees people who look like him, it's annoying when people in the majority try to say a place is diverse. Again, if you felt attacked I'm sorry. I tried to pad my statements with the goal of not hurting your feelings.

Yeah I am not naive, I anticipate some politics at Accenture but so far I've gotten a good vibe. Accenture seems different than the big 4, so I hope it translates to company culture as well. If not, at least I gave consulting a fair shake before moving to industry!

SC1 - do you work for Accenture or did you? Because it is a very diverse company. I am the only Caucasian person on the team I lead which is 12 people. At the top, people still see a bunch of Caucasian men but we actually have a wide array of managing directors. The #1 in the US is Caucasian, then Indian, Latino, African American, etc etc.

Found out today I’m 5 weeks pregnant. I am not sleeping well at night, feeling tired all day and at times about to fall asleep at my desk. It’s not affecting my work product per se but I takes me more time to go through things (I cannot keep a steady 8hr of billing). Should I tell the people I work with? They’re women with kids so I think (hope) they’d understand but I also started recently at the firm and the go-to advice seems to be just wait until 3mos…

I'm a M(32) from a traditional,religious south Asian family. Around the age of 9 or 10 I was sexually assaulted by a family member twice my age. I was threatened/shamed by that person to not tell anyone. I knew it was a bad thing and would bring shame to my parents per the society we lived in back in the motherland. I suppressed the memory of that assault and never told a soul. Fortunately my family moved to usa and I never had to face that (cont.)

Help - how do I fight claims by scammer healthcare providers?

I recently went to 2 different providers.

Dentist, made appt via Zocdoc to see a dentist that was in network. Another dentist at the location saw me instead who was out of network. I have text evidence they said it would be covered before visit. Claim was denied - asking for ~500 dollars.

Saw a specialist who’s office staff verified my insurance would fully cover the claim. Get the claim, says they are out of network. Owe 600.
