How is your firm’s culture in regards to using expletives? Are most people using them commonly? Are they on every other sentence?

I find that people use it commonly - not every other sentence but at least a couple times every call. Of course, a bit of gender imbalance here

If this is about our most recent call I apologize. I will cut back.

I'm in industry these days, hell and damn are used fairly frequently in group calls, but I can only recall one F-bomb off the top of my head in the last couple of years.

Very common in internal meetings, I swear like a sailor, but I have never once used a curse word in front of a client and have only heard it in general maybe 2-3 times in 5 years

My current client is pretty chill so I don't fuckin care.

funny

Fucking soft

People don't censor themselves here, but it's not "part of the culture" per say. People who like to swear a lot feel comfortable swearing, people who don't also feel comfortable not.

It’s common within our project teams. More filtered for larger meetings such as internal regional, firm all hands, etc. of course

Droppin me some F bombs

Management: Potential bonus reductions OP: Say no more, implements cursing fine and Jar and saves bonus pool. Management: Go ahead and make him a F#%&!#g partner

Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.
