To the PwC newbie at LAX: don't wear your suit on a redeye. Change when you arrive so you don't look like a hobo. And take the onboarding nametag off your laptop case. Actually just buy a new bag.

OP, it seems more important to you to be vindicated (and to name call) rather than to hear the feedback from numerous people in this thread. It's not a matter of up votes. Try opening yourself up to the possibility that you can and should think of people differently and treat them with compassion and respect. Think the Golden Rule. You will be (and be perceived) as a better leader and team member.

OP, If you ever desire to be a leader in any capacity, you might want to learn from this one. As a tenured member of the firm, you should have provided that "real time feedback" we aim to provide. As a leader or anyone that wants to become one someday, taking the time to coach, mentor and develop newly hired members should be a primary focus. The fact that you chose to voice here to peacock in lieu of helping them shows that your leadership is severely lacking.

OP seems annoying to me. I would have reached out to the newbie, introduced myself, offered to be a resource, given him a card, and gently coached him about the travel. Try a little kindness and empathy in your daily routine!!

I don't get why wearing a suit on the plane makes you a noob? I understand the wrinkly jacket concept, but I have the flight attendant hang it up

^^^^totally agree, needless to say. Seasoned Director here, and I have been managing teams and developing people for years. I am upset by OP's attitude and seeming unwillingness to receive honest, helpful feedback and to consider making changes.

You lost me, and I think most, when you said "ain't nobody got time to coach that". You come across as an entitled a-hole that somehow feels it was above her to talk to a "newbie". A 30sec intro saying "welcome to PwC" would've been enough for you help the kid out. You don't get because you have that stick too far up your ass. But karma is a bitch don't forget that.
