Is “comfortable with ambiguity” just a nicer way to say that “our company has a messed-up structure and no established processes so you’ll need to figure out stuff on your own because we don’t have a clue either”? Recently started my job in a corporate setting and I’m finding myself struggling. No goal setting/structured training/clear instructions or assignments for me. Messed-up organizational structure. Are there people out there really thrive in ambiguous work environments?
So I decided to leave Wells. I interviewed with multiple companies. 5/3 offered me an analyst role at $85k really early in the process and I accepted (I made $70k at Wells). BofA just offered me the exact same role at $125k. Would it look bad if I accept the better offer knowing I just started with 5/3?

Surely you wouldn't want to put anything in your pockets- it'll detract from your delicate lady curves!
This is why I just wear guys' clothes.
Pockets are the promised land. That's when we'll know we've really achieved equality 😭
Same goes for dresses. Dresses with pockets are underrated.
Conspiracy of the day: the fashion industry manufactured handbags by purposely excluding pockets from women's clothing, making purses absolutely necessary
Yeah I always felt sorry for guys who used to get flak for carrying small messenger bags. Thank god that's changing. Now make me a suit jacket that has actual pockets instead of little flaps where the pockets are supposed to be!
^you must be fun at parties
Why do you single out only the "men" designing them...do girls' pants designed by women always have pockets?
MS1: not your place to dictate to us when and how to discuss a topic. Please chill yourself. Thxs 😊
Hahaha on the bright side, at least it's socially acceptable for girls to carry handbags
Ah, the comment I've been anticipating. Mid-range fashion was and still is a male-dominated business, so the pocketless precedent was set long ago. My post was simply an apt generalization.
When men run the market, clearly market appetite is driven by and rooted in male hegemony. Think about why you believe that pockets are unflattering only on women but not on men. Why are they thought to be necessary for dudes and not chicks? It's about utility vs. aesthetics, and I think anyone (who doesn't prefer to go back to the 1950s) would agree that the former is more important than what's "flattering," notably in a work environment. Are you arguing that women shouldn't have pockets since they present the opportunity for them to rest their hands, resulting in "an unconfident non verbal demeanor"? That's a pretty odd non-sequitur, mang.
Conversely, I think placing my hands in my baby receptacle would be a HUGE power move.
No, but rather a good, robust, multi-faceted discussion/debate 😊
Funniest thing I've heard on this app so far lol
Why the fuck did a joke girls pants, pockets and vaginas turn into this huge debate with people trying to show off to each other how deep their vocabularies are. Let's chill out and have some fun people. Save that shit for Monday meetings
Pockets. Lol can't believe I just read this nonsense. I guess feminists will use almost anything to try and make their point. #savethepockets
BSG: there are female designers that design women's pant suits without pocket (ex. DVF). There are many professional women, myself included, that prefer non-pocket pant suiting and carry additional items on the inside of our suit jacket pockets or in our handbags. Imo, Suit pants with pockets can be unflattering for some and encourage the temptation of placing ones hands in the pockets which can convey an unconfident non verbal demeanor. This is more an example of market appetite dictating this trend than an example of male hegemony in the fashion industry.
^^1) if you think men SOLELY dictate the fashion market, then go talk to Anna Wintour. 2) women hold the purchasing power and if we don't like the product then we don't buy. Clearly there is more of an appetite for non pocket pants, hence a market surplus of that fashion trend among professional women. Econ 101 3) nowhere in my post did I assert women shouldn't have pockets. That is your presumptive dictate; not mine. Rather, I talked about how SOME professional women choose not to wear pants suits with pockets because a)she finds it unflattering to her figure ( her choice) or b)she wants to resist placing her hands in her pocket etc.. It is a woman's individual choice and preference to prefer utility over aesthetics and not yours to dictate. Furthermore, ones interpretation of utility and aesthetics is highly subjective. Are you arguing that your definition of what constitutes the former and latter is superior to other? That sounds rather oppressive and myopic. 3) lastly, I invite you to read up on non verbal body language communication. For one, you would learn that placing ones hands in your pocket ( male or female) is often perceived by others as a signal of insecurity, timidity, and even shadiness. I suspect you aren't in a sales, client facing, or FO role, otherwise you would know that effective non verbal communication is equally powerful and necessary for a successful negotiation.
