Yep. Same. But I’ve seen a turning of the tide with women (and some men) explaining why what they’re saying/doing isn’t ok. It seems to be working!

Just very handsy Italian and Brazilians who also openly compliment female employee body parts. I've been told that's "just how they are."

I am Latin American and a woman. Yes, being called good looking happens, hugging happens, kissing happens, being told your hair, nails, shoes, clothing looks nice happens. Doesn’t mean the man is really into you. Sometimes they are just being friendly. Yes, I do believe it’s part of the culture. Now, if they want to be disrespectful they would say some really nasty things... because if they want to go low, they would go low. So I think it depends on the type of man. A nice European/Latin American will not be doing those things without thinking that it might be offending you. So just think twice about it before thinking of it as something really bad.

Yep! I also want to say- I am Latina and have spent substantial time living/working there. Sexual harassment is not the culture. Here’s the baseline I use: does the behavior occur equally and in the same manner with men and women? If not, it’s creepy.

Sounds like someone needs to fix their "culture". Harassment is NEVER justified.

I’ve never heard/experienced that. Please elaborate?

It’s hard to tell people not to respect certain cultures with one hand, while cultures with actual roots of misogyny and women as “lesser than men” get automatic free respect pass. It should ALL be called out.

Yep!!!! Brazilians. But not the Latin culture, being outright sexist or being a predator

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

I proposed to account that they put together a few slides that help guide a conversation with a client. This client has been known to go off on tangents and provide relatively unclear direction. The call happened today and the account dir opened up the call by saying “X has some slides they want to share to help with today’s call”. Putting me on the spot. This call was by no means to serve strategic work, and I was there as solely as support. How would you have handled this situation?

Hi community, humbly seeking professional HR advice. I recently joined my company’s HR team.

Serious question. I constantly see income reports published that indicate only ~5% of the US population make over $250k, ~1% over $500k, etc. Is this actual W2 reported income? Do corporations have ways to compensate individuals so that their total comp does NOT show on their W2 (RSUs, Deferred Compensation, etc.)? Reason I ask is because I see great wealth all around me. I feel like these reports do not always tell the whole story in terms of TC & investment income.
