Evil HR Lady

Forget gender equality and focus on gender priorities

Penelope Trunk

Men do a lot more housework today than they did ten years ago, but they do the same amount of housework regardless of whether they are single or married. This means men are more self-sufficient than they used to be, but also that they are only doing what women would call “the basics.”

who pays for coffee, combining an interview and a trip, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. Who pays for coffee? I started working in a new office a few months ago and am trying to navigate coffee buying etiquette. My new office is very small. There’s only my boss and me in my department, and another department with a handful of staff members. Also, I work for a nonprofit, so the budget for expenses is small. Finally, before starting this new job, I was out of work for a while, so I am trying to be frugal and to save some money.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: A friend and coworker of mine (we met at our current job and became friends outside of work), I’ll call her Donna, is deeply unhappy. Her morale is low and rightfully so—her manager is, to be blunt, incompetent, and she’s had to put up with multiple negative experiences over the past couple of years. She’s been looking for another job but without much success. We work in a relatively niche industry so she’s had trouble finding much, though I’ve tried to help her.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work in a small office of less than 10 people, and even then, there’s usually only two or three of us actually working within it on any given day. I started off as an intern but have since been taken on as an employee – though I have never been given a contract stipulating annual leave or sick days. I just know what hours I work and what my rate of pay is.
