How do you all address mansplaining at work? I feel like it's gotten worse since I was recently promoted to the same position as a particular male counterpart. It rarely occcurs 1:1, it's always in meetings in front of our coworkers. He even went as far as to say he would "try to dumb-down this slide" to a female coworker who said the content may be too technical for our client (who is also female).

Every time it happens, write down exactly what was said and when. Once you build up a few examples, take it to your boss or HR and ask them how they would handle it.

Talk to him one on one and tell him to stop it

I call it out in the moment. In the Before Times I would stand up from the conf table to make a point. "Stop explaining Twitter to me." "Do jot speak over me when I'm talking to the client." Sometimes I get jaw drops, sometimes eye-rolls and sometimes apologies. I can't control how the men react but it makes me feel satisfied to assert myself, in front of everyone. Build that no-bullshit rep.

TikTok or Cepheid Biotech Hey guys, I need to make a decision today on whether I want to start a career as a Talent Sourcer at TikTok or as a Onboarding Specialist at Cepheid, a Biotechnology company. Both in the Bay Area at $35 per hour and both are currently WFH. The TikTok position is less stable and very numbers driven, while the Onboarding position is more “secure” but less exciting.

Networking question here. A retired partner at the firm I used to work out reached out to me recently about attending an afternoon during the week (b4 4/30) with one of his long time clients. The partner and I have kept in touch since I joined my new firm and I feel like his invitation is a great networking opportunity since the client (who I have worked with before) is on a number of boards. Torn as how to request off as an S3. Could materialize to nothing but could be good for reconnecting.

I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

So a company I interviewed with took me to the final round but rejected me for an architect role. Then, two months later the hiring manager hits me up for a manager role he thought I would be a good fit before the job was posted. We had a call and he said he thought I would be a long shot replying back to him. Also, he said everyone liked me and no need to interview. He said he has to post it and let HR do their thing before he can make a final decision. Why post a job if you want me for it?

Argued with my Gf on this, I think money and success comes to those who have values and live by them; not those who live by money. If your life is driven by just making more money, it won’t be as successful as a person who is driven by values and is compensated for the value they give. What do you think?
