Yay! It’s “diversity” y’all! 🙄
Ladies at Accenture - what is it like working as a woman / opps for advancement? I see a lot of lip service for inclusion and diversity and I want to know what is real versus PR. I’m considering a move from Deloitte.
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.
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Just accidentally found out the gender. Was in a test result where it shouldn't have been. Am I crazy to not tell anyone else? Including my husband? I want to preserve the exciting fun surprise for everyone else.
Can someone share gender pay gap articles? The only stuff I found doesn't control for education and experience and just looks at the total average by gender. Would like to see the pay gap difference when these variables are the same. TIA.
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. AOC, Biden, Ilhan, Hilary... I mean at try to be inclusive when speaking of diversity. You can’t name a single female in the Conservative party throughout history?
Do your colleagues discuss BLM at work? If so, how does that make you feel? #blm #workingwhileblack #blackprofessional #diversity #coworker
I’m seriously starting to feel like “corporate diversity” means let’s hire more white women
We have a team to promote diversity in our department...everyone on the team is straight and white. This really blows my mind.
I want to share a really cool account I found on Instagram. She talks all about issues women face in the workplace, gender bias, etc., and she’s funny. Love her content. @themondaybest
Lol. Glad to see DE&I leadership at Disney is so diverse. https://www.cbr.com/disney-diversity-councils-bob-chapek-bob-iger/
Seeing that there's so many rishta questions and the rishta bowl not being the most active, I thought I'd do us all a solid and make an ISO post for anyone looking to post their info to. Anyone interested in someone's profile DM them directly. Format for posting: Gender / Age / Location / Height (if comfortable with sharing) / Citizenship ( if comfortable with sharing) / any other info about yourself or what you're looking for Let's get people married in 2022! 🎉
Which consultancies do best in terms of diversity? What innovative initiatives have you seen that really improve diversity in the workplace?
Any single men in Dallas Fort Worth area? Transferring to be closer to family from DC and not looking forward to the lack of diversity (or texmex, whatever that is) 😫
If you are interested to talk with some opposite gender person outside of your team in ZS, how would you approach them/initiate the conversation? What tricks do you use
For those here who are young and single, how would you respond and what would you think if somebody attractive of the gender you date started making small talk with you at the grocery store or liquor store?￼ I am desperate to meet people in person but not sure how this will come across￼
Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
Today was one of those days where I was working all day, but have little to show for it in terms of work product. I know we get paid to think, so I am wondering, how do you capture your 8+ hour day in billables when there aren’t a bunch of emails/phone calls, there was no “research” and you made little progress with your written work?
Can I start an LLC and manage people’s money through a fund account without being a licensed CFP or having passed the series 7, etc?
Anyone else experience carpal tunnel and how did you deal with it? Lost a good night's sleep last night due to me developing a case literally overnight. Can't have that during busy season
Should I tell my cc about my disability? I have a neurological sleep disorder but can control it with medication and 1-2 10 min naps to get through the day. Cont..
What do we all think about Lyft? They have some really cool roles that I’m interested in pursuing but a bit skeptical about the ride sharing business model long term
Been into someone in senior leadership for awhile. Not making moves. No idea if it’s reciprocated because I’m usually too overwhelmed trying to keep it cool and professional, instead of flirting 🤐
I Want to maintain engagement and morale on a long project and staring an MS Teams Channel to post recognition and engagement events with staff. Stumped on what to call it… any suggestions? So far “Good news and more” is all I got. TIA
Hi.. I applied for an opportunity in UBS which I saw in Linkedin around 10-12 days back and I did receive a kind of automated email for online assessment. I took the assessment but post that I didn't hear anything. I see that job in linkedin is still accepting applications. What shall I conclude from this? Is my profile not shortlisted for interview or they usually took many applications and then decide who shall be called for interview? What is the approach?
Any fish out there ever have your reference checks go poorly and miss out on an opportunity?
Hi fellow fishes! I got a referral for an Sr associate product manager position at PWC digital and was invited to the first round (after vetting call). I was wondering can anymore share more about the type of questions they typically ask in each round (heard there are 3 rounds) and your interview experience if you went through it recently? Thanks for your help!
Do you feel like recruiters have your best interests in mind when they negotiate salaries on your behalf?
Good morning, Fish. How will you commemorate the victims of 9/11 today with your students?
Is it weird to give a director a thank you letter or a heart felt compliment. I really like my director. The way she manages and teaches has really helped me in my first year. She isn’t the type....
I have been reading several articles to get better at basic copywriting skills even though I am community manager, is there any hope for me? Can anyone give me any tips at all?
Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
How do you handle aggressive, hard-ass leadership? I was on a group strategy call and our VP says "OK *account manager* (me), we have decided that your new focus needs to be electronics, do you understand that?" He said it in a very stern tone of voice. Well of course I understand it because it was my f*cking idea that I brought to his attention prior to Christmas. IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.
Just got an offer as an s1 in KPMG FDD practice for $95k. I’m in Texas. Did I lowball myself?
