Someone last week asked about the authenticity of Diversity initiatives at work. Interesting piece from NY Times http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/17/public-editor/new-york-times-diversity-liz-spayd-public-editor.html?referer=https://t.co/7Xo5N2j97t
Any thoughts or insight on what it’s like to work at Droga5 as a Producer? What is the culture like?
I enjoy PA and being partner would be tight but I don't want to sacrifice every other aspect of life. They always promote balance but they promote people who don't have balance. Just bad culture.
Currently on a project that has nothing to do with me. I understand developing a new skill set but I have no past experience that aligns with the scope and deliverables of the project. I've spoken with the PM and they say I'm still the best fit. I think it's just due to the firm being understaffed. Time to talk to my direct to get off that project? Thoughts?
Hey, fishes - have a comp discussion coming up soon. Any info on salary bands/ranges for Associate Manager and Manager Level? Heard it is 18-22 for Associate Manager and 22 to 26 for Manager. Is this range right and to what extent it is negotiable?
Something on my mind is how I often hear my white male friends complaining about affirmative action biasing their mba eligibility, but when I point out white people have it easier than Asians they become very defensive. Funny how they can see themselves as the victim but not that they benefit from the system. Would y’all agree with the premise (Asians have it harder than white people)? If so, have you noticed this white defensiveness in your life?
I’m a senior accounting student and I have the opportunity to interview for a matter management internship role at a law firm (activities involved in managing all aspects of the corporate legal practice. ) Would this be a good opportunity to get me into risk analysis/ FP&A one day?

Interviewing for a commercial role at Accenture, working in federal spaces right now and I cannot deal with anymore Big4 fed work. Any insights on Accenture? Do managers have revenue/sales targets? Do you have to have 10 different "firm initiatives" or other non-chargeable work to look good for promotion?
Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?
Good news for everyone no matter where you are politically: New research indicates COVID immunity could last more than a year, especially after vaccination.
All the folks out there on a visa (e.g. H1B), what are some side hustles you have to earn some extra $$. Need some extra hope today to keep at it!
My first holiday season in-house after a couple of decades in private practice, doing the same kind of transactional work that I’ve always done. My year is functionally done. No one else is around or working. I’ve been so conditioned to expect to grind out through the holidays that it makes me think of how Brooks in Shawshank had become “institutionalized.” I only worked hard the last couple of days because I set some deadlines so as to get things tied up before the holidays - the old mindset!
I am looking forward for a referral for an opening in Gap Inc 11+ years experience for scrum master. Please help for any contacts, thanks!
