I love that companies are continually exploring ERGs that help support so many different individuals. However, there's one demographic that I haven't seen explicitly represented:


According to recent data, men are increasingly dropping out of work during their prime years, overdosing, drinking themselves to death, and generally dying earlier, including by suicide. And, that's just a few stats.

How do people feel about ERGs specifically for men? Why should/n't they exist?

I very much appreciate the thought - but it's not something I'd be interested in participating in.

My understanding of ERGs is that they help folks navigate issues relating to discrimination. If someone thinks they are being treated unfairly, they can approach the ERG to get an outside opinion. If there are systemic problems, the ERG can advocate for specific improvements.

What would a men's ERG do? I don't think my masculinity has ever been the cause of discrimination. And the company probably isn't the cause of most of the other issues you've brought up.


The items you listed sound like they would fall under the mental health conversations and support network that a lot of ERG’s cover.


They probably should exist but it doesn’t really fit the whole agenda of DE&I

This might be a stupid question - how do you get talking to a recruiter? I’ve put in a couple of applications but not had anything back - I’m pretty self aware but genuinely think I’m a very good fit (on paper at least), and feel like talking to a recruiter would help either concretely explain why im perhaps not a good fit, or actually give me a fighting chance amidst a sea of resumes. Any help welcome!

Hi everyone, I need help evaluate an offer for senior data scientist at a mid size corporate in SF (mainly focus on statistical modeling and data analysis, no MLE related tasks):
$175K base + 300K RSU, no bonus, fully remote. I’m currently working at a unicorn with $115K base + stock options (best case scenario if stock price increase 11x I’d get around $300K out of it before tax) + 15% annual bonus, in office 2-3 times a week.


Got an offer from a growing tech start up, base salary got reduced but bonus and stock options (300 units over 4 years) are amazing. The company is aiming for IPO next year. What're your thoughts on reduced base?
