Just started at a new firm after leaving my first firm, and immediately I am seeing major red flags. First, we had an all hands meeting which turned into two partners just yelling at the rest of the firm. Second, I noticed there is zero diversity in the partners (all older white men). Third, any expectations the partners have are not clearly defined and are not laid out completely until you fail to meet them. It Just feels like an abusive environment, and I’m worried about the future here.
Thank you Nadia for your insights. I’m frustrated gaps still exist in the industry; and the diversity & inclusion needle hasn’t move much since Al Sharpton protested on Madison Ave in the 90’s
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Let’s start by posting age, location gender (a selfie if you want!) I’m 30/M from nyc looking for something more serious these days in terms of dating..
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 you ever feel like you were a "diversity hire"? Have you ever thought your coworkers thought of you as such? This is an insecurity I battle all the time.
Should we try our hand at matchmaking? Drop your age and gender and what you are looking for in the comments and maybe we can find your soulmate or at least a semi decent date
How do you respond to comments like “we just hire the best person of the job, regardless of race or gender”?
My husband quit his job to stay home with our son when he was born a year ago. I took a new job and we moved. It's been a lot of change and really tough. Any advice for reverse gender role couples?
Out of curiosity, is it better to work at a firm with diversity issues but more resources & perks than a diverse firm with limited resources?
Always suspected a gender pay disparity at my last role, which is one of the reasons I left. Learned today from a former colleague (a peer) that my old boss offered him significantly higher base pay to join the company, then a pay increase after I quit to try and retain him. I am done with that place but I’m still so frustrated that this is something women still have to deal with.
Congratulations to all 3 of you for what you’ve accomplished so far. All your journeys are inspiring. My questions: how do you push for diversity in hiring practices in a meaningful way? Any recommendations on ensuring firms are committing to this throughout the life cycle of all employees (promotions, recognition etc).

Just got an offer at Deloitte. Feel like comp/rank are too low due to lack of diversity of interviewers. :( Can anyone relate?
I've often heard "diversity of thought" (i.e. conservatives) as being callously injected into the diversity convo. Typically this coming from white men. What are your thoughts on this?
Any one in north Jersey (Bergen) interested in hitting some tennis? I am 26M but this ask is gender agnostic.. I am getting fat these days and would appreciate a work out buddy. :)
Thanks for doing this Paul! I'm pretty interested in data on this. Do some states have teachers w/ more student loans than others? Is there a gender gap?

Anyone have advice on how to negotiate a job offer? I’ve done all the research I can online but wanted to see if people are willing to share what personally worked or didn’t for them
Being a fat person is f*cking exhausting. I'm on the lower end of the spectrum and it still sucks immensely. It's one of the only completely acceptable biases and honestly, it's painful. I see comments like these and I feel like I'm back in elementary school, when I wasn't even that big. I was just a sad kid with a tough home life who had a tummy. And the bullying I received caused me to turn to food to deal with my traumas at home and at school. I hope the world will be better to my children.
Need to find a financial advisor and someone to help with taxes. Total noob with this stuff (hence the need). Would prefer to have one person to handle both. Recs?
Got an offer from a wealth management firm to do taxes for high net worth individuals. I have 2 years of SALT experience with both corporations and partnerships. How big of a learning curve would it be to switch to individuals? I am having doubts that I am not qualified and it might be a difficult transition.
Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.
How important is getting the VP promote before changing funds post-MBA? Been at current fund for ~9 months and they told me I’m on track to be promoted in 3 months. But the culture there is awful and I can’t stand the people. Also plan to be in a different city long-term anyways. Given how hot the market is right now, do I need to wait for my promotion to look at other firms?
