Mostly I ignore it. If I don't like the guy, I let my eyes glaze over, or make an interruption that changes the subject. I know it is annoying, but unless it is done in such a way that he tells your colleagues and boss how it is thanks to him that you know something, why even waste psychic energy on it?

Alvarez and Marsal is wanting me to come in at an associate level although I’m a senior in Big 4 FDD. Thoughts on this? Person told me associates at A&M get around 90k base plus bonus and seniors there get around 120 plus bonus. Should I push for Senior, and how would I even do that? I already verbally expressed that desire. Should I just wait a few months till I have more than a year of senior experience? Any associates shed light on their bonus? Is it 100% of your salary or more like 20-30%?

Looking for objective opinions. I was in a training session today with all men and one other woman. Truth be told, I was by far best there (based on effort, not necessarily natural ability). I suddenly felt like a goody twos shoes and unliked for coming prepared. The woman was indifferent with me which happens a lot with women in the industry. Sometimes I think it’s because I’m well put together and carry myself with confidence (I’m no Kate Moss but I did used to be a fashion buyer). Cont. below
