Immediately untrustworthy. If they’ll say it about them, they’ll say it about you

🤔 did she say this to you ABOUT them or to THEM to their face. I don’t condone either scenario, but if she said it in confidence to you, she may have just been trying to build relationship/bond with you. For some people, nothing bonds more than a common enemy.

This person said nothing to them, this was said in a private conversation with me. I believe you are right & thank you for that insight. The 2 individuals spoken about were my former HRBPs before I moved into HR. Mainly I do not want this colleague to believe I condone that type of behavior, no matter how junior I may be

That’s a wise hunch, thank you. I was none the wiser & thought they all highly respected & valued one another. I will hang in there & if it occurs again, consider bringing it to our CHRO.

For those of you working from home, do you know whether your coworkers will be throwing a baby shower for you? I feel like without being visibly pregnant to most people (since we are not in the office), I feel like I’m going to miss out on having one which is kind of a bummer since I’ve always gotten gifts for others.

Anyone used the Andy Lacivita resume style? Seems like the opposite of what I’ve picked up along the way, with all the write ups, length, etc.

Also they offered me a base salary that was already at the top of the salary range but I negotiated for higher and it was accepted.
