Funny story, our team of about 15-20 people had holiday party at the partners house and it was a white elephant exchange where people bring gag gifts. Someone decided to bring a MAGA hat as a gift and the partner was the one that opened the gift and screamed for joy when she got the hat. Everyone in the room was dead silent looking at each other like what ” what did we just witness”

VP1 maybe you should listen.

All these comments are so entertaining. Shows the ingnorance on all sides. MAGA hat not acceptable and neither is anything BLM. Keep the politics out of the work place! I don't are about any of your opinions.... Just vote!

I mean. Is it “wrong”. No you can express yourself, we have freedom of speech. As long as you know people will rightly lose respect for you and your intelligence and you will alienate the people on the call with you since you will be marked as an idiot in their mind, then sure do it if you want

VP1 - usually when someone “tolerates” racism and hate, then they support the cause. so yeah no democrats won’t love and tolerate racism and hate

you wouldn’t be “wrong” but you would be showing your support to an administration that is anti-intellectual, anti-science, narcissistic, racist, classist, homophobic, and etc. and then it’s up to the people to make their judgement about you, which often times would be that you are all of the said above

Please wear it! But in all seriousness, totally fine if you support trump but inappropriate if you bring that to the workplace. This goes for the other side as well

Just started a new gig this week and the workload is slow, so I figure we should make the most of this downtime.

My teammate and I haven’t worked together on anything yet. We’ve talked on zoom before and have texted and called occasionally.

I’m hoping we can become familiar with each other and get that creative back and forth going. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for activities or creative exercises?

He frequently shows up at the end of the day and says that he has not completed the work that was assigned to him because he wasn't in the mood for it today and would deal with it once he's gotten into the "flow". I have escalated this previously and the director was more concerned about making him feel bad rather the fact that I keep having to pick up his slack.

The Chief Justice (a poc) “investigated” and concluded my camera was off and doesn’t want to disrupt the bar. The racist in question said she saw me. Do I elevate this issue?

Senior Managers and Partners:

What would happen if I straight up refused to work on a client this summer since it’s been a fiery shitshow of an audit year after year?

And that’s despite the whole “next year should be much smoother” BS we hear from the partner and the CEO.

It’s a client we’re not making money on the audit, in comparison to the other services we’re offering. Since we have so many other services provided to the client, we’re likely to keep the audit. And I want no part of it.
