Posted this in another bowl but wanted to get thoughts from you ladies!
I’m starting in a new role tomorrow and will be traveling to the clients site (think big bank). It’s my first time working in the Financial Services space.
Any advice on what to wear for the first day? A professional dress? Also what are your thoughts on designer jewelry (Cartier bracelet or VCA necklace). I can keep it simple and wear my Apple Watch. Just want some thoughts. Thanks in advance !!

I shared the wrong screen in a meeting with 1 direct report (Director) and 1 of his direct reports (Sr Manager) 😱. I have 2 screens and Zoom chose the one not in front of me and I had no idea. The screen had my to do list on it and number 1 was “send resume to x” (name of recruoter and company was there). About 3 seconds after I shared the Director said “I think you’re sharing your to do list” and I immediately closed it. I have to assume they saw everything. What do I do?
Hi all, is it completely work from office for Tiger Analytics, or WFH is also allowed? I'm in NCR and don't wish to shift anywhere else.
I want to pivot from Marketing (project management to Talent Acquisition. I have two job offers: 1. Talent Associate 2. Talent Sourcer - the second pays way better. If I take offer 2 will that still allow me to develop as a TA specialist further down the line?

Hey all, what’s your opinion on providing 2 Week notice? Do you think it’s still standard or depends on the situation.
I recently received my start date for a new job, and am happy to be leaving my current situation- it is a very hostile environment. I’m debating whether to give a week or two week notice.
What’s the best virtual event you’ve attended? Looking for ideas for our women’s network, new hire class, industry groups etc. so anything could work!
Any opinions on mentoring?
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

How do you get the most out of your Series 7? From feeling like you are actively using it and making a nice income. I would hate to feel like I need a career move just because the Pay isn’t where I need it to be or maybe it’s because I am in Ohio?
My manager consistently makes condescending remarks about my work even though I’m overworked and prioritize what is urgent. I regularly work 12-13+ hours a day but never receive any confirmation or recognition that I’m doing a good job and there is always something to criticise.
How should I approach speaking to my manager about this toxic environment?
I’m the only woman on my team and have noticed my manager does not speak to my male colleagues with the same tone

Is it just me or have you lost touch with most of your friends from high school/college? I’m 29 yo & coming from someone with a lot of friends, I can say that I now only have 2 friends that I can really trust and have kept in touch with over the years, in addition to my significant other. After the pandemic & switch to the WFH/hybrid environment, I’m feeling more isolated than ever. Any tips or recommendations on how to network and meet more people? I’m based in LA!

I returned to my job after leaving, and was told that I wouldn't get a 6 month raise since I was a returning employee. I was passed up for a promotion/ payraise for by someone who has been here less than half the time. I am a top performer and have incredible numbers to back that up. How do I go about asking for a raise?
What are you ladies wearing to the office lately? Looking for colorful/feminine takes on working in finance. I think I may die if I wear a navy blazer for 40 more years.
Did anyone see the post in the Work-Life bowl posted by the analyst? Saying that he(26M) was scared to be judged at corporate events for his gfs(19F!!!) hair color & tattoos? If you didn’t, please check out the comments. And then remember that these are men in the financial industry, that could very well be your coworkers. The grooming. The objectification. I am disgusted, but not surprised.

Sounds like you’re dodging a bullet by getting out of there. You could always raise your concerns in your exit interview because at this point you only have a week left and it sounds like he’s just bitter that you’re leaving
I’ve had this happened to me in My previous job. Like literally asking me every single time. It’s irritating.
Yikes. Sounds like Vanguard
I’m a direct person so always want to confront these types and situations however IMO this is a time to let it go. I’m sure your current manager is worried you will spill about them at the other location so is taking it out on you. Stupid, I know, bc it only solidifies you’re right about them, but think of your long term career goals and focus on what lies ahead. Ignore this petty shit. You are SO CLOSE to being out of there.
You’re right! Thank you
Just make sure he cc’s you on the email. This sounds like a bullshit overstep, and you should absolutely protect yourself.
I wouldn’t let it bother you unless you have a history of not meeting performance standards.
from my desk excessively. I have always gone to the bathroom every 45 minutes to an hour. Sometimes it’s a quick 5 minute thing, others it’s 10. I don’t see how it matters, truly.
Given it being the home stretch, I don’t see why he would actually bother going to HR, but it sounds like he is!
So, does anyone know if I could truly get in trouble with my company?
For context, I am leaving this office and starting at a new office with the same company. So I will still have the same HR department.
Where do you work? I can’t imagine HR will do anything. Maybe you should call them first?
Thank you. I will be
Sue as harassment
Definitely would let it go as you’re about to leave. HR is not and never will be on your side vs management/the company. I used to work in HR and we literally had to disclose ‘confidential’ stuff all the time if the company felt it was in their best interest.
At the end of the day HR works for the company.
