What’s your gender, age, & city? After dropping your info, respond to others in your area
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?
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 🙄
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
Happy MLK day 🐟 fam! Would like to get some positive buzz going. Start: I appreciate the diversity of discourse here, so many strangers offering helpful advice, a shoulder to lean, or simply empathy.
Diversity in advertising is great, however I think it should also include diversity in opinion/political views. Anyone agree/disagree?
I know I want a job change but not sure to what. I actually enjoy strategy and consulting and want to make good money. I can learn and get interested in just about anything and I like diversity in my work. That’s all I’ve got so far. What else do you all consider in a job move?
Google is putting on an entire Juneteenth celebration complete with a concert, happy hour, cookout etc for employees...🎉🎉🎉 The lack of diversity at Google is quite real, but I appreciate their...
Earnest question about the New York Primary Election from a foreigner (Brit). Why does gender count? This seems terribly confusing https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/22/new-york-primary-bernie-sanders-supporters-delegates
Does anyone love the fact about FB that the comments are gender neutral - meaning you don't know whether they are from a guy/gal explicitly ?
I’m working on a diversity and inclusion survey. Interest in workplace surveys can be low, but I’d love to see high engagement on this one as it will help us understand where we can improve...(cont)
#Genders Women, do you find it difficult to work with men? Men, do you find it difficult to work with women? If there is something you absolutely hate and would like to change when working with the other gender, what would it be? PS: I'm sorry for focusing on male/female genders in the question, but it's valid for anyone having different experience working with other genders than theirs.
we just had a day full of workshops about inclusion, so maybe my job is safe for a few months.
How many agencies that have spent the last year talking about Black Lives Matter/equality/diversity and then don’t do a very simple thing like closing in recognition of MLK Day?
Question for the married folks. What in your opinion would have been the right age to marry? I also understand there are several factors but im respectfully more so interested in the age, gender and reason for your answer. Grazie!!
Just wondering how many of y’all volunteer at your agency’s Diversity and inclusion committee/taskforce/Ect?
Anyone have first hand experience working at Ryan, LLC? Pay/Culture/Leadership/Diversity etc..
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
Currently I own VOO, VXUS, QQQ, and tiny positions in ARKK. Should I buy emerging markets/mid-cap etfs? Increase my 10% position in international? Or something else. Mid 20s.
Long shot but anyone exit into a consumer insights role at a creative advertising agency?
This is just weird. (Layoffs a week or so ago)
I'm up for a promo, EA to SA. Currently making 80k base. What would you expect a promotion raise to be? Given the pay band shift and new cohorts?
Seeing some people just roll out the bed and show up on zoom meetings. I think this will come in handy to remind them to shower and change, ‘hopefully’? 🤦🏻♀️😂
For annual bonus and raise, if you came into the company mid year,do you still get the annual raise, or is it after one full year of service, and then you have to wait until the usual bonus month?
Is anyone on here familiar with Activate Consulting, the TMT-focused boutique? I’d love to hear anything and everything about the firm’s reputation and culture. What is the bulk of the functional work that they do? Are they very involved in deal origination and strategic due diligence?
Would you leave to a Microsoft PMM role if you only have one year left till promotion to manager at your firm? Exit now or wait and get the title? Thoughts?
Looking at making a move from a top 20 city to PNW farm style living. Work from home permanently and live peacefully. I'd be close enough to SEA that I'd be able to make it work if I had to (ie if remote ops reversed course) Anyone thinking similar or already done so? Also,has anyone sold their house to an institutional buyer? Obviously, you may get less cash, but it will also take longer to sell, so you are paying holding costs, etc and taking on more market risk.
Deloitte IT M&A or KPMG IT M&A. Theoretical gun to the head and you gotta choose one, where do you go? Why?

"The eight predictions, helpfully sorted into four themes, will be familiar to anyone who has read the business section of the Boston Globe. Remote work will be more common, business travel will be less frequent, childcare and housing are getting more expensive, inequality is worsening, public transit will be less popular, population growth will slow, and we need to retrain workers for a changing job market."
I’m planning to buy the study materials for the SHRM-CP certificate through Amazon. What are the best ones to obtain?
Vuzix, got in at $4.50 and this company is going places. Their smart glasses can be used across nearly all industries and has a ton of applications, and they hold critical patents for their industry. Very long on this one - cell phones went from clunky to sexy in just a few years. The wearable tech is getting better and better by the day and the pricing more affordable, just about to gain steam. High insider ownership and no selling with the run up or attempts to raise capital
