OP can advocate for violence through his cute attempts at false equivalence all day long.

What he doesn’t realize is that his incompetent attempts at 4th generation warfare will alienate the very people he needs to support him, will get him and his buddies stomped, and the entire country will cheer.

This escalated quickly. I posted an article about property damage since people have strong feelings about it lately. Not sure where the advocate for violence and being happy to see people get stomped came from

Shoehorning race into things to keep us divided and prevent real change. We do it so often we don’t realize anymore.

TONS of white folks have been protesting (or rioting, if you will) for George Floyd- it is not at all simply a black/white thing. Many of us want to see things change.

I just said it in another thread, but applies here- two things have to change to avoid these kinds of scenarios going forward- the racism in our policing policies, which obviously is an important step, but ALSO the general violence and militarization in our police forces in this country. This is an important factor that NEEDS to be discussed (but isn’t as often).

Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tony Timpa, Kelly Thomas- two of these men died at the hands of police because of racism, two of them died because of the militarization of police in general. You haven’t heard those last two names because we as a society are fixated solely on the racial aspects to keep us divided and away from solutions we can come to consensus on.

‘Agenda’ and ‘Propaganda’. This is what a call for basic human rights for black people are being called. These are supposed to be educated and enlightened people on this app- and ya’ll feel a call for change is an ‘agenda’? You should be ashamed of yourselves. We have a long long LONG way to go. OP, thank you- some of the people complaining about this rebellion (I refuse to call it a riot) were probably out on the streets themselves rioting after said sporting events!

Haha all good EY2. I agree with you 100%. It’s very difficult, especially online. You have people who make comments who would never say those things to people face to face. Also, it’s tough to pick up on tone so it put folks on edge.

Is it true that one of your leaders posted about the recent murders? Saw someone post online saying they are proud to work for EY because of it

I also hope y’all have remembered the riots that were going on for the past two weeks over not wanting to wear a mask and the ‘right’ to get haircuts amidst a pandemic. But God forbid we stand up against the injustices we’ve been facing for 100s of years. People who don’t understand are just feigning willful ignorance and will never get it.

like

@A1 pretty sure they look like riots because the individuals involved are smashing cars, looting stores and burning down buildings, not because of the color of their skin. In fact, it seems to be a pretty diverse crowd taking part in these activities.

Keep at it with the propaganda OP.

like

The photos are of the riots in Vancouver after the Canucks lost in the Stanley Cup finals. There was intense media coverage of that and 4 years went into investigating it and there were 887 charges against 301 people (Wikipedia it). The statement that no one gets upset if it's white people rioting is false.

like

Thanks for sharing the facts. I wish the article didn’t have “white people” in the title because it causes people to immediately get defensive. Maybe “sports fans.”

What about the other instances in the article where people trashed their cities over things like, winning a championship, their coach getting fired, or losing a basketball game to their rival? Not the same outrage - and the people today are protesting against police brutality, a murder, racism, and inequality (which are much bigger problems than sports if you ask me)

That’s the Vancouver Canucks riot. Rex Murphy went on a nationally televised 10 minute rant chewing these people to shreds.

I agree. Every time a white crowd destroys a city because their sports team lost, or even won, the responses I hear are “yeah it’s crazy but what can you do? Sports fans, am I right? 🤷🏻‍♀️” Now when it’s black people protesting being killed in public for no reason, the responses are much more angry. “Do they think this will help? Bunch of animals? This is hurting their cause.” There’s an implied message that these people would care about racism but they just can’t when they’re burning stores. It’s a very privileged response.

How do you frame your counter offers? In my case the position is new for the hiring company, so there aren't great baselines, but I know an extra 10k would make me a lot more comfortable and it's probably pretty attainable in this market... but I do feel this company is an exceptionally good fit and don't want to start off on the wrong foot.

What are the highest paying industries for HR professionals?

I’ve noticed that, similar to those in other professions, many in HR choose to stay in the same industry throughout their careers (e.g. tech, financial services, manufacturing, pharma, gov). In your experience, what industries have the highest average or median pay for HR professionals, assuming same title, YOE, location, etc.? Any survey data or other research appreciated.

So to give some background, I currently have about 6-7 YOE in the BA/PM space, and my current position is 100k, with 10k annual bonus. The position I hold is as a Senior Business Analyst at the company I'm currently at.

I received an offer for a Salesforce Functional Business Analyst at Accenture for 128k annually with a 15k signing bonus. I'm hesitant due to the lower title, as I want to move back into PM work, and feel as if I'm taking a step down. Also, concerned with the WLB at Accenture.
