So Delta is rewarding all its SkyClub members by cutting back when you can actually use the club. Starting 6/1, it has to be within 3 hours of your flight. But worse, you will not be able to use the club after you land for a call or a quick snack unless you are on a layover.

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting. One is the typical longer hours like 55 hours or more during busy season and the other one is 40 hours a week all year long with a reduced salary, almost like a reduced schedule employee. The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?

In reality, most of these DSA concepts are already implemented in some libraries our code uses and we rarely have to code such Algorithms by hand.
