I totally get it. But sometimes the one time you have available isn’t the easiest availability for everyone. The lack of flexibility you have can sometimes been seen as making you difficult to work with.

Venting a bit: Are you finding DEI groups at work overrun with allies. Is there also an increase in celebrating said allies? Is it just me?

Most of the groups I'm in (esp. event teams) are being taken over by allies wanting to do what they think should be done to 'celebrate' whatever topic the month is, usually speaking over marginalized coworkers and rarely consulting with them. It seems like the only time this doesn't happen is for gay (usually yt) men or BHM. I'm just feeling so...minimized.

Hi fishes,
I am currently working in a firm where they are using C language and sometimes there is a need to do some kernel development as well.
Before joining this firm I wasn't aware that the work over here along with the people with whom I am working won't be that much supportive...Before joining this firm I had worked on python Nodejs and Cloud Saas. But upon receiving an offer from a big firm I decided to join it (since I wanted to maintain a work life balance). Please suggest me...

Hi Fishes.. I need help on this scenario, got selected in multiple companies till HR rounds and cleared HR rounds too. The problem is that the HR is not responding to mails or calls since then. This is so unprofessional by the HR, is it because I am having 90 days notice period. Even for resigning and reducing the notice period, we would need at least one offer. Anyone else facing this issue?
