Ladies, let's hear your best horror stories working in the tech industry

I’m a recent grad and I’m about to start my new job soon. I came across a few horror stories about girls and their experience working in tech. Is it as bad as they say ladies?

it depends on the team. There are bad teams and good teams. Its hard to say company X or company Y is hostile or supportive. Most companies have employee groups that are supportive of various demographics, but the impact of those depends on who you talk to. I think sites like have helped with exposing the various TCs at companies, but I think more needs to be done. I was inspired by the story of Erica Baker and plan to do something similar at some point at my company.


I once had a manager ask during happy hour, “When was the last time you got drunk and had sex in an office?”

As a new grad, I didn’t do anything about it. He was eventually fired (go figure LOL).

What in tarnation
