I'm guilty of #1. Didn't realize it was offensive. Didn't use it until I started consulting 2 years ago. Never used it 5+ years in industry.

Basically all of them

I have never heard “punch a puppy”. Also “mission statement” is an actual thing, not office jargon. Were missing several great ones like “disrupt”, “powerful”, “lets take this offline” but then again this was a UK survey

“I want to leverage your synergies” is not a phrase I’ve ever heard. Both “leverage” and “synergies” are vastly overused phrases but “I want to leverage your synergies”... no. Also “chew on” is overused. Something for management to chew on

Dang, I’m easily guilty of using over half of those on a daily basis.

What does World Economic Forum have to do with this? Sources are Glassdoor / Statista

Are you really a consultant if you don't use at least 25 jargon words or phrases a week? It's like I have to flip a language switch when I talk to non-consulting family and friends.

What should be the stipend for an intern (compiler engineer) in Bangalore ?

Hello everyone!
I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA
