OP nailed it 🤣🤣

Ok sharing what I typically do. I wait for sometime and approach them when I get any slightest reason. Sometimes I ping if they share availability mail, sometimes I ping asking to know about the space or role they work in to get more exposure, sometimes I directly say just trying to make some friends within company in this wfh scenario. Believe me the last thing worked like a charm many times. Many people of all genders are vexed with this online scenario. Everyone is eager to make friends. You just have to start the conversation. P. S: I am not suggesting to be creepy. It is a genuine way to make friends


In WHF setup or like in real? WFH setup me toh na ho paye!

Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.


I have a bit of a dilemma and need some advice. My manager pushes really hard to recruit and hire only minority candidates. While I'm all for diversity, it feels unethical to exclude other qualified candidates just because they are a particular race and gender (white males). I've had to pass over a few candidates that were WAY more qualified and in my opinion would have made a much better fit. I don't know if there's anything I can or should do.

It's really pathetic to see guys getting desperate on this bowl and due to such guys all of us get labelled creeps. I can understand you guys are not getting any due to the skewed gender ratio but please maintain some dignity. I am sure if the gender ratio was skewed in reverse then women won't be behaving in such a desperate manner and would rather stay single. My request to all guys is please have some self respect because this desperation won't lead you anywhere

Does BCW not allow conservatives to be employed at this company? I’m sitting through another meeting where we are highlighting amazing women and it is so politicized I am completely offended.

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

My firm was recently acquired and compensation is unchanged. For context, I’m at the engagement manager level with the organization that was acquired, and with the NewCo, the coverage and responsibility is likely increasing.

Rising 5th year. The partner I closely work with gave me a positive evaluation and wants to chat soon about my future. I’m planning to apply for in-house positions after the New Year. Ideally, I’d like to be open with the partner about this and leverage their connections with clients. But I worry about admitting I don’t want to stay and try to make partner. They basically control all my work. How do I hedge in this chat that I’m leaning in-house over staying long term at the firm?

I have been offered a lateral move within my company to a role I (believe) I will be more interested in that will suit my skills more. However, I’ve now been offered a promotion in my existing Role, and have heard that this is a pretty big deal and almost fast track to Director. Am I mad to pass up a promotion for a lateral move that is unlikely to promote me for some time?? I’ve been in my existing role almost 2yr. Will it affect my future growth? I’m 30 so would love to be a director soon
