@yomamatb I see a lot of groups that continue to add more to whatever majority already exists: I worked in one place where the majority of the BI team was Russian. I worked in another place that had a higher than average number of Muslims. A third place had a single Tamil Indian that felt quite excluded among his Hindu-speaking peers.
Even if we exclude bias, the reality is that we’re most likely going to get referrals from people in our peer group. I don’t believe any of those groups deliberately discriminated but I’m sure that each group’s minority felt left out and more likely to leave.
I’m curious if you’re lumping all Caucasians in a single bucket or if you’re implying “white American” because I don’t see a lot of the former and I see even less of the later.
@muffin man: I think it’s a problem when we assume diversity means “non-white people”. If you give majority to any minority group (or majority group) you start to see failure in group thinking.
Diversity only works when there’s a good balance of people. That means we put Russians, Americans, Chinese, Indians if different regions, Germans, and Mexicans in a group. That DOESN’T mean you have diversity because you hired 20 of (any one group).
Disney contacted your current employer!!. Seriously. Only a lame company/person would do that.. I had similar experience with GrubHub, the idiot recruiter contacted some of my team members via LinkedIn chat inorder to gather my feedback...
Hey stupid millennial s stop with the “I need to make excuses for my privilege “ - we understand you have been indoctrinated by the PC culture and everyone over 30 thinks you are cult meme eta regurgitating diversity and inclusion nonsense that tour small brains have been programmed with.
When you were at the beginning of your 3 month prep, how good were you at the algos and DS? Did you struggle of were you pretty good front he beginning?
I've done about 25 easy ones and get disheartened when I get to one I struggle with. I work on it for about 20 mins and if I can't get it I check out the discussions and check out YouTube videos but then the next question seems as hard if not harder.
I would hire you due to the quality of this write up, alone.
Also, you should get an attorney and sue Disney for needlessly harming your current team relationship thereby destroying your ability to remain where you are without future bias, etc. Do this for the rest of us. They may just settle and you make a few extra bucks off their liability. (Whenever I’ve interviewed and have to sign permission to contact current employer, I always write in “only after acceptance of offer” or something to that effect, if not already stated in contract.)
