Has anyone sued or been part of a lawsuit regarding gender discrimination? I’d like some advice and would be relieved and appreciative if anyone is open to talk about it via direct messaging.
Would you confront a senior leader on inappropriate behaviour yourself (remarks about gender and race) or would prefer your coach to do that? What would be the merits / consideration that you should factor in?
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA
NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
Someone last week asked about the authenticity of Diversity initiatives at work. Interesting piece from NY Times http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/17/public-editor/new-york-times-diversity-liz-spayd-public-editor.html?referer=https://t.co/7Xo5N2j97t
Your thoughts on Inclusion champion?
My agency puts on a big show about their diversity/inclusions/women’s equality efforts but for the most part its bullshit. The c-suite drinks their own koolaid and don’t even realize it’s all fake.
I am a special education teacher and I was hoping to start the year by gifting my inclusion teachers with a little “survival kit”. If you were to receive something like this, what would appreciate finding inside?
I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
Best city to live in in early-mid 20s?
I did a photo shoot for my firm’s diversity campaign and they made me look browner than I am to make a point :/ Not sure what to do
It just occurred to me that part of why I like posting on Fishbowl is that no one knows my gender
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
How is the diversity in leadership, employees, etc… at the other consulting firms? I am at Deloitte (USDC) in FL and it’s primarily Indians.
What are some Diversity & Inclusion strategies to implement in the workplace ? Additionally, if you are starting a D&I committee internally, what are some key factors to consider?
One of my bosses doesn’t shut up about freaking diversity (which is extended annoying).So since I’m the only latino on the team, I’m going to use that on ms.weallbelong to get promoted.
If we were to work from home for another full year, would you renew your lease here? Or go to another city/town?
Roth IRA and 401k currently all in 2060 target date fund. Should I exchange for all VTWAX or keep in TDF? I’m 23 (VTWAX expense ratio: .10%, TDF is .15%)
That's Quarantine Baby !
Imagine, instead of Meet the Parents, a movie called Meet the Partners where an analyst anxiously waits in an introductory zoom call with the project partner only to receive a “pls reschedule” an hour later. What’s your best consulting spin-off of a movie?
Prestigious boutique retail consulting firms? (Chicago, NYC, or national outside of MBB and Big Four)
Kind of regret going into accounting/audit lol. Was anyone else told “accounting can do finance but finance can’t do accounting.” I was under the impression that transitioning to finance would be easy, but all the exit ops I see are senior accountant, internal audit, accounting advisory, etc.
What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move and am wondering if I made the right choice?
A white friend is looking to buy an apartment. One apartment is in an older building in an established neighborhood. It doesn't have an in-unit washer/dryer. The other apartment is in a brand new building in a historically black neighborhood that has seen a lot of gentrification but it's still near a project with a gym, a nice roofdeck with a grill and in-unit washer dryer and costs $100k less. She's considering the first place despite it being more expensive and older. Racism is expensive.
Interviewing with PWC digital risk solutions group - any pointers on what I can expect or any knowledge from people who are familiar with the DRS group. Input on company culture would also be great.
Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
Passed over for a promotion a third time, even after doing everything, and more, you’re supposed to? It’s time to GTFO
Hello industry folks, really need your career advice - YOE 4.5, CTC - 6.4 LPA, ICICI Recently transitioned from an operations role to Product Manager role. Got a new opportunity with Infosys as Senior Associate Consultant Banking Domain for 11LPA+1L Joining Bonus. Now, as I transitioned to PM role, there are tons of opportunities to learn and grow, however, CTC and hikes are meagre. Whereas, with the new opportunity, CTC is good, but cant figure out what career would be in Infosys and after.
What type of questions should I expect in an skills-based Product Manager interview? A senior product manager will facilitate the interview, who sits in the Accenture Interactive umbrella
Took the GMAT without any preparation and scored 590. I am almost 40 now but I want to pursue MBA. Is there any good colleges which would accept my score or do you guys feel I should retake the test?
Anyone have insight into Citi's WLB and culture? Got an offer to join their Digital team. Comp is basically where I am now (lower bonus percentages actually), but would be more of the work I like (from PMO to product). Culture and work hours will be a huge factor in my decision.
How do any of you write an effective resume, when we have to keep mum on project details / results?
