Thoughts on wearing (not obnoxious) college rings (not HYP, etc.) to the office? I feel like the practice varies heavily school by school. Is there a certain where it becomes less acceptable?

Only acceptable if you went to one of the academies and only advisable if you still serve or retired.

I am not surprised it is Texas trying mimic the service academy tradition. No one is impressed you went to A&M

in my opinion it looks ridiculous for someone who just graduated to wear a school ring. like a college kid wearing their high school varsity jacket. vomit.

i think that if you are much older (like 50) and do a lot of campus recruiting/active in alumni association, etc, it’s fine and could be a good icebreaker

Old coworker is finally leaving the most toxic work environment I’ve ever experienced. CEO once told my coworker a monkey could do his job. Now that he is leaving, suddenly they are frantic to find a replacement. My friend found a replacement and left him on the desk. (BDR is not business development. It’s backup disaster recovery.)

Hi all,

My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.

What is this? This is normal?

Stereotyping?
Racism?

How should I deal with this toxic boss? A senior lead likes to reign with terror. She would call people out in meetings and gives really harsh feedback in front of everyone.

I’m sick of her behaviour and with burnout, I just can’t be bothered to rationalise with her … but at the same time I don’t want her or other people to think I did something wrong . What should I do?
