I’m a senior associate. I have a couple white male junior associates who constantly push me to do their stuff and they are very condescending toward me. I’m asian and a foreigner. I wonder if white guys do this to white senior female associates or I’m getting a racial discount here?

I’m also an Asian female senior associate, not a foreigner. I’ve seen white male junior associates do this to white female senior associates as well. Personally I don’t think I experience it worse than my white female colleagues but that could just be because I present fairly assertively. I’m sure some aspect of your experience is racialized.

This happens to myself and my female associate friends regardless of race. It’s infuriating.

Curious to know more details about how they push you to do their stuff? Totally believe you but that’s pretty shocking

Advice- I am new to consulting/Accenture from industry, I have been asked to charge 40/45 hrs a week but I get all my work done in less than 20 hrs. As a Christian I charged the exact hours worked which is 18hrs but my SM is not happy with that. What am I supposed to do? Any one ever have this issue of finishing tasks in less time?

Hot take: being inclusive means accepting everyone's views. Which also means accepting non-acceptance. Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and most major religions don't accept LGBTQ+ as a way of life and that should be okay. I won't treat someone who identifies in that way any differently than anyone else, but I don't have to be an ally or participate in events of the like. The reverse holds true as well. I feel like it's pushed so hard that I'd be treated worse if I hold this view. Prove me wrong!

Talking to Deloitte federal about an opening, but I hear a lot of people here warning to stay away (low pay, not very fast pace). Would it be wise to join Deloitte federal, then try to switch later?

Not asking for a name, just for what you ACTUALLY do lol, your title/rank as a consultant, and which company. Can you all list those if you make $120 K as a consultant? Want to see my other options if this promotion to senior this cycle does not equate to a $120 K salary. For reference, I am making $95 K as a Staff 2 consultant aligned to tech consulting but have been doing mostly change management work.
