I used to think “Go back to your home country” was an insult. Now I actually think it’s good advice. I don’t fit into the bro culture here.

I'd go back to my home country in a heartbeat if there were any real opportunities for my training, professional experience, pay, and future development, but alas, it's not applicable back home... And, it IS meant as an insult, usually...

Some context: When it comes to coming up with ideas and winning pitches, I’m always invited to the table. I’ve had success that’s been recognized by our global network. But when it comes to rewards, it’s seems to be only for those near and dear to our CCO.

I’m from the Caribbean, I’d rather be there but thankful for the opportunities here that I don’t get at home. I’m in the same boat OP. However, sometimes I’m invited to the table too late to fix their problems. Then when I do, no reward.

Well India is not a bad place for advertising right now. Here in the US I have to deal with racism and sexism back home I will have to deal with lack of professionalism and pollution. I don’t know which is worse.

OP, I understand. And yeah, it's a valid option you can consider. But I don't think you'll be exempt from sexism and/or other discrimination in India. The patriarchy is strong around the world and many countries like mine and yours are very conservative.

I have an exit offer to a major PharmaCo, really excited about the offer and company in another state. The problem is that the start date is right when my wife is due with our first child. Normally nbd, but we just found out that my wife has developed a heart condition because of the pregnancy. OBGYN and Cardiologist both have said that it would be ultra high risk for to move before the baby comes and will be safe 1-2month after. Tips moving the start date without getting the offer pulled?

Probably a good thing for now; but if we take coronavirus out of the equation, I’m interested what others in the community do to develop personal connections.
