Beards are fine as long as they’re tidy and full

Wear well fitted clothes, stand tall, don’t wear glasses have a tiny bit of scruff at all times (no beards and shave if it starts to look patchy) also the way you command the room will deem how much people make fun of you for looking young

Don’t wear glasses?!

On the same boat OP - I’ve risen pretty quickly and I’m by far the youngest in the room. I’ve learned that confidence first and foremost. As mentioned above, well tailored clothes help. Also don’t dress “young,” wear conservative clothes. Now I know I may get some crap from some on this, but also use a traditional cut. Don’t go having does crazy haircuts with all kinds of fades.

Now this is my thoughts of you are a male. I’d defer suggestions from F🐠 to see what they do.

Nice tie, looks burberry

People who work in banking, and especially in France, have you ever been badly treated by your colleagues with an attitude as if you’re not even worth a piece of sh** ?

I don’t know if it’s because people in the banks are like this or if it’s because french people are rude. But the way my colleagues behave (fortunately, just some of them, not all) would be considered extremely impolite and uneducated in Asia (where I’m from). Would love to hear some of your opinions about this!

Advice on dealing with criticism of your writing? I write, my supervisor rewrites it, then her supervisor rewrites that.

The process is taking the joy out of writing and negatively affects how I feel about the writing I do outside of work for mere enjoyment.

I had an assistant in another office of my firm help with a big filing. It required the assistant to work past midnight on a Friday to get everything out.

Money/gift card feels practical but impersonal. Maybe a nice bottle of wine? Looking for guidance on what to get/how much to spend.

Its a political minefield.

I’m a mid level engineer and my team is overwhelmed. There’s more work than we can complete in the timelines that leadership/product has committed to, which is causing leadership to override technical decisions seemingly to meet those deadlines. An example would be routing all live traffic to a feature which was not fully tested, instead of waiting until testing is complete or having that change be dormant and the feature enabled later. Has anyone dealt with this type of issue?
