Any fish depend on Wells to meet their numbers? What are your thoughts on Charlie’s and Saul’s third party spending cuts? Is this temporary? Will it work or won’t work?

Short answer to your first question - yes. This is very cyclical at WF. They keep doing this. Plus based on their culture - they will never fire employees. So consultants first ones to go. Though this is straight out of Charlie’s playbook too that he followed at all 3 of his earlier employers. Reg work will still continue. They will continue to lag behind others in terms of innovation and won’t buy from consultants


In reality, if they fire some of those employees and get things outta the way, they’ll save money and make progress. The anti-consultant sentiment is very high these days. They won’t hesitate to meet and hear our ideas for free though!


For once I’m glad they are an audit client...

I want to talk about how this industry can sometimes feel like it's run by robots.
