Any women on here make significantly more than their (male) SO? I’m trying to be a good millennial and not tie my happiness to gender norms but every few months I get upset (cont)..
Can anyone speak on the diversity at Alverez & Marsal? Thinking about joining but it seems very homogeneous which I guess isn't too different from other consulting firms.
🐳🐬🐡🐟🐠 I love diversity😊
I fucking hate the expectation that "men must provide" or "women must act a certain way". That's damaging to a lot of relationships. I love division of labor and working with each other's strengths and weaknesses without so much emphasis on gender roles. I'm a big supporter of utilitarian relationship that strives for the good of the partnership and each party.
Do you show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.
I have pretty clear evidence of gender pay discrimination. Anyone have a California based employment attorney with expertise in this area?
SM asked me to “fix the gender ratio” on a pursuit deck where I had a team of 3 men and 5 women. Guarantee if it had been 6 men and 2 women he wouldn’t have batted an eye 🙄
I’m a mid-level working in a niche area in NYC. I like the work I do, put in long hours, high quality work, take time to mentor juniors, etc. I see myself at a law firm long term but now wondering if this is the right firm to make partner. Among others, one big concern I have is the non-existent emphasis on diversity and inclusion initiatives (they aren’t even pretending to care...), no committees, no statements in support of POC, etc. How do I find firms really committed to these issues?

https://www.google.com/amp/s/mashable.com/2018/01/29/google-youtube-women-in-tech-diversity-town-hall.amp Hypocrisy at its finest. Google and YouTube’s Ceo both said what James damore was saying in his memo all along yet google decided to fire Damore 🤔.
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
Did you know? “Women receive ‘negative personality criticism’, such as being called bossy or told to ‘watch their tone’ in around 75% of performance reviews. Men, on the other hand, rarely do.” From https://cultureplusconsulting.com/2018/03/10/gender-bias-work-assertiveness-double-bind/
On a scale of 1 to 10, how male dominated is your team/practice/office? 1=gender parity 😃 10=only 1-3 women 😒
trying to decipher: Persons background is very technical and they are the "go to" for technical matters on the team. When projects are being considered, they are usually last in line for inclusion
How do we encourage our agencies to hire based on potential, not experience? Everyone wants diversity but everyone wants cookie cutter award-winning creatives too, which often don't necessarily match
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
Anyone ever used a ride share app that employs women only? Really wish it was an option to choose gender on Uber... especially for late night rides
Have an interview with Salesforce (Acumen Solutions) for a Business Analyst position. Currently in industry. Previous experience was consulting. What to expect in terms of WLB and how similar is it to consulting?
Interviewed for Deloitte S&A Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got a much higher offer for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but need time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
At what point do you ask about relocation assistance in the process? I don't want to come off as asking too much, and I've only just had one round of interviews. Do I want until an offer might be closer or do I talk to the recruiter about it now before proceeding further?
Has anyone ever taken a primary residence loan against their 401k? Pros/cons? Most of my savings are tied to 401k at this point due to paying off student loans. Wondering if it is worth (cont.)

Negotiating an offer with a federal consulting firm. I have a month of expected leave coming up in the summer - family emergency reasons. How do I mention this and let them know that ill need this time off.
Hi all! Anyone here a single dog mom/dad? I’m adopting during covid but concerned about dog parenting when work life is “normal” again. Any advice or outlook?
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.
2ys in a relationship and both got promoted to Manager in the same field from different B4. I'm finding it difficult to hide stuff like Biz dev activities from her. How do you guys deal with it?
Does anyone work in the internal tax groups for the big 4 or midsize. Can anyone give me some insight.
I’m not going home for holidays this year because of travel restrictions. I’ve been seeing someone for ~6 months. I’ve met their family (who are local), but haven’t spent much time with them. We haven’t discussed holiday plans, so not sure what to expect. Should I expect to be invited? Do I ask / hint? Do I need to get presents for everyone, or just for the SO?
Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?
Shout out to all the staff online at 10:30 right now. Bonus points if you haven’t cried today.
