Here, from a recent post, is some advice for new graduates starting in business:
Your potential for senior management will be determined by the three H’s: Hair, Height, and Harvard degree. You need at least two out of three. (Non-Harvard schools will be acceptable if it’s clear that you “could have gone” to Harvard.)
Your hard work will be rewarded. Specifically, your boss’s boss will reward your boss for making you work so hard.
There’s no such thing as good ideas and bad ideas. There are only your own ideas and other people’s. If you want someone to like your idea, tell him he said it last week and you just remembered.
