Bosses Refuse to Train or Critique Diversity Candidates
I'm in a group of 14 bankers, 4 MDs and we have gotten to the point where of our 8 Analysts/Associates, 3 of them are diversity hires that literally do nothing.
We have other bankers, who happen to be minorities, not the super protected kind, but they applied through normal channels and do the same duties as any other juniors. It's just that all 3 of these people who have been hired through Women/Black DEI programs do close to nothing, have an excuse to take days off or "work" remotely for 2-3 days every week, still haven't learned the needed skill sets and worse all encourage each others shit performance.
Now honestly, I blame my bosses. I don't know why they can't just treat these three lumps like everybody else, because the rest of us would get pushed out for this type of shit. But because they never get talked to, or even staffed on anything vaguely important these days, it sends a clear message to all three that they can do whatever they want and it's pissing off the rest of the team, including me, greatly. Even if they are all bottom bucket and get $bonuses, that is too much to take out of someone else's bonus pool for these people.
I'm mostly venting but our entire team is pissed off by it and even the two younger MDs are very frustrated by it because they're more likely to get staffed with the Diversity 'Tards. Is there any way to take this up with our group head or strategize among each other so we can go back to HR and say "Guys, this isn't working, these people aren't working, and we need actual bankers". I've been working a lot lately and it sucks not being able to pull an Analyst in to help because no one has ever made an effort to train them or get them up to speed on expectations so they will certainly fail if given a real task.
God this stuff sucks.
