Let it be known: if you are not interested in having your supervisor (circle all that apply:) send you videos of himself masturbating, texts about the stuff he wants to do you rife with spelling and grammatical errors, grope you, or leave you lewd notes via Post-It, consider not accepting a gig with Guerreiro Wealth Holdings, where, allegedly, this kind of thing is not frowned upon.

In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Karen Lo, 20, said she'd only been working at Guerreiro Wealth Holdings for a short period of time when boss Thomas Guerriero sent her the astonishing e-mail "with a link to an obscene pornographic video containing explicit sound and imagery depicting male masturbation and ejaculation" this past Nov. 5. The person is only identified by the tag "stallionman_69," but Lo "believes the masturbating male, whose face is off-camera, is Guerriero." The stunned stockbroker texted her boss back a short time later saying "I really can't mix work with my personal life . . . I really hope this doesn't affect work." Guerriero responded hours later, saying, "No that's fine. I hope we can be friends though," the suit says. But "the unwelcome sexualized banter" didn't stop.

In January, he e-mailed her to say he'd gotten drunk at a spa the night before, and wish she'd been there with him. "I would of definitly made you blush I was acrazy mood you would of defintly had alot of fun. I was going to record a video and send it to you but I wasn't sure how much you liked the last one you asked for. Did you like the last one?"

In February, he sexted her, saying "I wanna take you in the stairwell on the low wat u say . . . I know ul love it. meet me there i wanna touch u already," the suit says. She said no, and noted she had a boyfriend - but that didn't stop him. He made fun of the size of her boyfriend's manhood, and said, "please don't make me touch myself thinking bou(sic) u." Lo texted back that she wanted to "keep the whole thing professional." The suit says he also groped her and left her harassing Post-It notes.

In the event you are interested in all that, please note that the firm is now accepting applications for summer internships and "MBA fellowships." And also that there's a thing called The Guerriero Institute, founded by Professor Tom.
