7 years here and I think a 5. Character is really difficult to assess in interview process but those lacking always become known and don’t last through a round or two of upward feedback. 5 doesn’t mean perfect people but the best in consulting.

Of course we are relativising "character" to a subset of humanity prone to lying, manipulating and story telling. If we would be rated by the rest of society, surely the numbers would resemble those for lawyers and bankers! 😃

I’ve met some 4 and 5s. But also had to endure a bunch of 1 and 2s. Overall majority is probably 3s, just like our ratings. And what someone got for year-end rating is not necessary an indicator of his/her character.

Bimodal distribution of 1s and 5s honestly. Feel like we run at the extremes

How much money is “enough” for you guys? I’ll go first - $2M/year from passive investments so that I can work on whatever I want or not work if I don’t want to.

I thought software engineers were supposed to be making the big bucks…but this just looks like consulting pay scales to me?

Is hunting an out of norm hobby? I’m no redneck but recently got into it over Quarantine as a fun new thing I’d never think is. It seems when someone asks what you did and I say hunting people get all weird. Why is that? Is it the notion of guns?
