I don’t surf and not sure what is considered “in the area” for you; but, I’m sure you can find lessons near Rockaway Beach/Breezy Point area.

I’m doing a personal “lessons learned” and was wondering if I could get some feedback from you. Short story: c-staff level micromanaging boss kept redirecting me and my team and trying to fire them for trivial reasons. Did official performance reviews and proved the team was doing well. Firing talk ended but team quit due to turmoil. Company wants to keep me but I am wrapping up, then leaving. Aside from 1-1s w/ boss, HR, trying to move to another department, what else could I have done?

Some of the most interesting/useful advice I received when I was at Accenture as an analyst was when I asked the SM responsible for the CDP program what meritocracy meant for Accenture. His response stay with me to date “Meritocracy isn’t about the number of projects or deals you work on, how efficient you are, how dedicated you are but it’s about how many MDs know and like you and who on performance calls like you”. He was promoted to MD this year. Lesson don’t be a grinder - play the game.

The level of mask compliance on the trains right now is stunning. I'm on a train with about 40 people and all but 1 or 2 are wearing masks. And this has been my consistent observation over the last few weeks! I know it's still required, but this is distinctly more compliance than I ever saw a year ago!

The only variable I can think of is I'm now riding during normal commute times, so maybe the polite professional crowd wears masks more than the folks on the trains at odd times of day.
