thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.

Hello! Does anyone have any feedback they’d like to share on BIP (Business Integration Partners) specifically the Milan/Rome offices? I really like the way the firm presents itself online, though the lack of diversity in their leadership is astonishing… Thank you!
Not in GPS, but I do get the emails from Dan Helfich and I just want to say he seems like a helluva leader. He comes across as authentic and genuinely invested in diversity and well being of his ppl.
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Another win for diversity!
Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
38F here .. for those of you on apps and seeking a relationship, not something casual, what are your age filters? Please specify your age and gender when replying
I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...
Seriously hoping these numbers will get better https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-09/dimon-calls-jpmorgan-a-black-diversity-leader-numbers-disagree
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
Hello. What's the best agency so far to go to when it comes to diversity and actual inclusion for a POC creative? Im pretty done with POC creatives being put on banner projects and the white teams getting the bigger stuff.
Hello, I am dying to know the average age and gender ( even non Binary) of people in this bowl. Just curious , I will start - Female 33Y
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 discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start. I’m a 29 YO female, almost 6 years experience total, at a 115 base, guaranteed 126 if I meet utilization, with potential for more bonus. No target school or MBA. I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?
What metrics do you use to gauge your health? Don’t see a doc nearly enough and given the lifestyle curious to know what folks track
Obviously investment strategies differ, but where do you draw the line on not choosing a fund based on the expense ratio whether for an index fund and also for a managed fund?
To the partners/directors/senior managers: can you give examples of mistakes/lessons you learned throughout your careers? Any really big F-Ups that really made you think about staying/leaving?
Which is better for salary long term? Job hopping for bigger raises? Or sticking with a company hoping to move up the ladder more quickly?
I’m a JR. Is unethical to try to get a piece of the pie? I’m at a small agency, there’s a project going on that seems awesome, and I would love to be able to work on it so I can put it in my book.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
What's the reason a recruiter would want to know my current benefits package (401k match & Salary)? I moderately understand why they try to gauge salary but 401k seems odd. Were they trying to wow me or is there some other reasoning?
I have a giant 5 month old (22 pounds, 26 inches) who has already outgrow his Baby Bjorn Bouncer. Any recommendations for seats / bouncers?
Is there actual risk, not speculation, of the firm taking away bonus if you give notice after comp statement issued (Aug 26) but before paycheck deposit (Sept 6)? Has anyone’s bonus been taken back?
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
What are the best international development / nonprofit exit routes for analysts looking to make an impact and not take a huge salary cut? Open to similar hours!
Hi! I plan to get my mba in 3 years. Been working at ey in tech consulting for the last 3 years, more beneficial to continue at ey or switch to a pe firm that focuses on enterprise software?
Just a reminder, I put together a comp survey. Will keep it open another week and then compile and post results. Got a couple hundred responses so far, but looking for more! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScGHoBn8qXfoS5SfcYUzxIMqscoFrLsKtk5oNYthQGCXHqmFw/viewform?usp=sf_link/
Going to be an experienced hire from a boutique, starting as Consultant in London. I gather that in terms of trying to drive greater choice of projects & greater promotion opportunities, you need to network internally. What does this mean? What’s the best way to do this (remotely & not) as an experienced hire?
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Any NYC MBB consultants - do you generally travel outside of Manhattan for work? Or are your projects within the city generally? If you can share example schedules for first year, that’d be great!
My senior, left at 2.5 years for $96k plus bonus, they had no CPA. Is it possible to reach that amount with a CPA but 2 years of experience?
Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
Thank you Delta!
Anyone have experience starting a new job for a week then leaving because you got a better offer (as in, was interviewing with both places at the same time, but one moved slower). Any huge red flags or issues?
