In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

The consulting services teams of big tech (Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, etc) seem like obvious entry points for consultants due to relevant experience, but they get little attention here. Why is that? Do those roles lack good pay, advancement opportunities or better WLB vs working for a consultancy? Do they have the same focus on firm initiatives, utilization and BD/sales as consulting firms?

Why are most people at larger firms scared of layoffs? Even the worst layoffs at major firms have only been around 30% of people, right? Unless you’re a low performer, there shouldn’t be (continued)
Anyone else feel stuck? I know some of it is Covid but I feel like I take one step forward and two steps back. I just can't get anything to move forward. I had a rough break up, stuck in my job, can't leave the country, no hope that anything will change in the near future.

So I’m finishing up “The McKinsey Way”, and this guy is going on about all his recommendations for surviving at McKinsey, one of these recommendations being travel items.
