One of my bosses doesn’t shut up about freaking diversity (which is extended annoying).So since I’m the only latino on the team, I’m going to use that on ms.weallbelong to get promoted.
Besides decently high pay (compared to other countries), freedom (speech, voting, "opportunities"), diversity (primarily coastal states), what are some other good things about America? Wanna be grateful, but America's deepest flaws have really been exposed this past year (racism, government inefficiencies, struggling health care systems, expensive health care, gun violence, poor grade school education systems...). Don't see these getting better anytime soon
It just occurred to me that part of why I like posting on Fishbowl is that no one knows my gender
Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
Someone last week asked about the authenticity of Diversity initiatives at work. Interesting piece from NY Times http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/17/public-editor/new-york-times-diversity-liz-spayd-public-editor.html?referer=https://t.co/7Xo5N2j97t
gender equality is great and all but god dammit what i wouldn't do to have the first day of my period off from work.
Interesting perspective on a group who gets left out of the diversity conversation. https://www.diversityinc.com/9-things-never-to-say-to-white-colleagues/
Currently in a play on ATOS that might be interesting for some. It’s a biotech with its primary drug being endoxifen aimed at treatment for breast cancer. Company has no debt and $138M in cash. It’s been announced to be included in the Russell 2K so there will be a predictable movement of ETF inclusion close to June 25. It also still has a high short interest so potentially for shorts to be blown out. I’m currently in 25k shares @ 3.35 holding into the 25th. My price target is $20.

Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA

Let's talk about Christmas bonuses: Should you be penalized for leaving your firm in your bonus if you've generated significant amounts for the firm? Is that common practice? Disgruntled associate. 😂
So I had an interview last Friday for a contract to hire role that I thought went really well. So up until today there wasn’t a peep from the recruiter hiring for role, so I reached out. The recruiter then asked me how comfortable I was in a fast paced environment. I responded by telling her that after working a mix of agency and client side, yes. I honestly thought the answer was pretty self explanatory. She then pushed for more details, which I provided an example of. Red flag?
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
So we're apparently now calling tax intern training "Future Tax Leaders Academy"? I think I just pulled a muscle from rolling my eyes so hard.
So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.
Is it appropriate to message a recruiter (at Deloitte on Skype) on about a full time analyst position that I am interested in? Currently an intern at Deloitte
Was anyone able to receive a NIE letter from Deloitte for visa stamping purposes? If yes, please help me with the process.
Has anybody adopted or considering to adopt. I am torn :( Multiple failed cycles. Next option is donor but insurance wont cover it, even though anthem says about donor in the policy. Anyone use Deloitte insurance for donor egg? If we have to pay 50k out of pocket, is it really worth it or better to adopt?
Is the main advantage of applying to mba early simply to literally start making more sooner? Is it easier when you’re younger? I’m fortunately not in a rush to apply and I think next year my app will be stronger, my income is not gonna be much higher post mba, I’ll have another promotion, better recs, and less debt to take on. What am I missing?
I wasn't selected in the first lottery this year and have since moved to another company. If I was selected in the second lottery, can my current employer file the H1B petition?
Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.
A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:
Is a year too soon to ask for a raise? If you've made a handful of things, some of them pretty cool, including a 360 campaign? Also...forgive my inexperience, but who do I ask about a raise?
Chicago at 140K or San Francisco at 175K?
