I’ve seen this type of payment in my families home countries. It’s one of the reason folks over there stay poor. Always in debt, thinking that because they can pay for random things over a few months it will be fine. But those small purchases add up quickly and will soon be overwhelming. It’s really sad.

No way it doesn’t end in tears. Predatory af

Predatory targeting aiming to hurt young women most of all. Should be illegal or highly regulated.

It's obviously predatory lending meant for stupid kids and those who care more about showing off than living within their means. But we don't teach financial literacy in school these days.

Also worth mentioning that millennials and gen x use these products just as much as gen z. Y'all don't need to make this a generational issue.

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!

Seeing lot's of CEO'S (Google, MSFT, Twitter) of Indian origin with the latest being the one heading Starbucks. What explains their success? Is it just that a lot of Indians come here for their higher education and thus the higher number? Is there a diversity angle (div of thought, country experience etc) to this? Do they place a premium on education? Asking as your friendly Pakistani neighbor. No hate please

Are there any locations that feel like their offices are diverse beyond just having a few black individuals? Like asians, hispanics, indians etc? For me diversity is beyond just black & white...

Well damn. I really felt that part. Oof. Representation rises and yet both gender equity and pay equity lag. Particularly for Black professionals.
