RE: All-male workplaces
Thanks, appreciate it. I'm planning on getting started on the CFA soon but being ready for the June exam would be a bit of a stretch. The school I'm attending does offer to pay for a few people's registrations so I'll wait till I attend and then take it in December.....if I get intothe other school I'm applying to then it doesn't really matter as several BB firms recruit that school's MBA's directly.

RE: All-male workplaces
Worked at only one all male workplace, which was a construction company during the summer of 2005 when I was 19. Work sucked, the foreman was the devil, and 75% of the workplace was immigrants so I could only communicate with a few people. No naggy females, but still hell nonetheless. None of us really talked to each other or hung out; the boss threatened to fire us on the spot if we were caught chit-chatting.

I can't imagine an all female work place having impromptu parties after work. I can certain groups within the female staff going to bars expecting to be entertained by other people or to get attention, but I can't imagine them partying as a group.

Female initiated parties require a party-planning committee, demanding party fund donations and arguments about decoration colour schemes.

RE: All-male workplaces
Right after HS, during the summer before college my old man thought it would be a good idea if I got some real world work experience working as an asphalt worker

He had put in 33 years and had risen to the top of the food chain working for the public works department. It was only meant to be a summer gig to put some money in my pocket before going off to school, but looking back I can see he wanted me to not only learn hard work ethic, but also show me the 'other side of the game'

As a temp, with no experience and at the bottom of the totem pole you can double as part gopher/grunt labor/personal assistant

These were real men, with real lives and real stories. Just from rubbing shoulders with them and having a glimpse into how they went about their business day in and day out professionally and with dignity still is one my life's most valuable lessons.

That summer they got cheap labor, but I recieved invaluable life lessons

This morning I got called over on a short gig on a bigass luxury yacht.
A friend of mine is the boss at the place and he brought me in to the coffee room where maybe 50 guys and 5 women were sitting

"Gentlemen, let me introduce to you my good friend Chaos!
He is gonna be around here a few days so please say hi to him but do not shake his hand.
He just came back from Asia with a bunch of new STD's that nobody have seen here before"

He's a "friend," but that was a dominance display because he's the boss, right? I've become much more aware of power and covert hostility displays over the years. I distanced myself from some guys who were too free and indiscriminate in their talk about me.

Really, true friends don't embarrass you too much in public. I'm not saying dump the guy or even call him out but be aware.

I had a lot of all male workplaces in the military and also in law practice. The problem with male workplaces is dominance displays and struggles, but at least they are open. With women, you have more backstabbing and passive aggression.

RE: All-male workplaces
My stepfather works in a heavily-PC university environment, and is as Blue Pill as it is possible to be. He's forever chiding me for my sexist attitudes.

His boss of 12 years retired 18 months ago, and was replaced by a 40-something unmarried woman. He was saying how the diversity would be great for the department.

18 months later, he refers to her as 'The Cunt', and talks about burning the whole department to the ground when he's not trying to plan early retirement.

RE: All-male workplaces
I'm an engineer and work for a company that builds utility-scale solar power plants around the world. The engineering department aka the guys who do the real work is 100% male. There is no female boss at the company, no diversity training, no gender sensitivity bullshit, nothing. We are there to get the job done the best way possible and nothing else. It's a great environment and makes the job pretty fun.

On-site it's also naturally male-only. It's a rough environment and certainly not for everyone, but way more gratifying than sitting in the office all day making power point presentations or drafting reports that no one will read (been there, done that).

RE: All-male workplaces
I have done summer sales (door to door) for five summers (it's a seasonal job). It's got to be one of the most red-pill jobs out there; a team of 15-20 guys slogging it out all summer and coming home at the end with 5-6 figure earnings. It's awesome bc so much crazy shit gets said and done that wouldn't fly for a millisecond in a corporate environment. You can't be a pussy and knock doors, so it's mostly cool masculine guys on the team. I've been thinking about writing a data sheet on it because it has been an awesome experience for myself and a huge part of my come-up, I bet it would benefit a lot of younger guys. Maybe more on that later.

I'll add something else: it's so funny to see red-pill truths in action, such as when a girl is on the team. Can you imagine a decent looking chick in an office of 15 horny guys who work 6 days a week and don't get to interact with any quality chicks (barring wives, etc.)?? The dynamic changes and things get whack real fast...all over one chick. I'm glad our team was only dudes this year.

RE: All-male workplaces
I worked as grocery stocker for a year, basically we would unload trucks and sort shit out to be put on the shelves. All of them were guys with a manager who was about 10 years older then us, high school and college guys. We would say the most absurd shit that would get anyone fired if the female boss heard but luckily everyone loved it and would always have something to input.

A little story about female employees: I would say the majority of females worked in the front of store doing cashier and manager duties. There was 1 general manager and 2 lower managers. GM was cool but she liked to act like she was superior to everyone else, which I can't argue with that, she worked her way to that and showed it because she knew how to handle situations( this will come into play later.) So, after about 8 months there we had a new policy were we had to wear these headsets so the front could call us or tell us about an issue in store since we were busy in the back dealing with inventory. They were super annoying because we had to stay on the same channel as the girls and it was just bullshit after bullshit, listening to girls talk and gossip and demand you leave your work will make you go crazy after awhile. So a few of us decided that we would just stop wearing them and it became a habit. One day the lower manager, a real cunt, caught me and told me to put it back on. I did in front of her just so she would get off my back. She came and found me told me to go home, I thought I was fired by the way she told me off. I come in the next day for my shift expecting to be called into office and say this is your last day. 1 hour in and nothing... I go up find GM manager on my lunch break and ask if everything is cool and she says yeah. I think the lower chick got in trouble for telling me to go home because she never barked at me again and basically avoided me. Banana

RE: All-male workplaces
I’m a defense contractor (aviation), and it’s pretty much male only in my specific job. There an odd woman here and there working on the flightline, but since they all come from a military background and are voluntarily deploying overseas regularly they’re only there for male attention and usually aren’t good workers. Best ones are the dykes; they get their shit done without getting in my way.

Flat roofing. All male, not even gross ass dykes here because it's actual hard labour and slackers get fired.

I traded financial futures and it was 95% male. It was great.
