In a dilemma, have a Booz Allen Hamilton offer for an Travel System Analyst job for 75k and 5k sign on in DC. However, the job it’s self isn’t my go to option but it’s a good in for Booz.

When I used to travel for business, my local cab driver would pick me up for airport trips. One of the drivers was from Lebanon. He would ask me jokingly how he could contact Modi to find out why India doesn't compete in world cup soccer or win golds in Olympics. I would answer him all of my cousins are either doctors or engineers. This NYT article reminded me of the good old days www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/world/asia/olympics-india.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

A friendly reminder to LGA folk — that stupid on-ramp adds 15-20m to your travel time. T minus 45 so here’s hoping the TSA haven’t messed up CLEAR and precheck.
What are your best WFH places in the US for cheap (no rental car needed preferred)? I used to stay at cheap Marriotts in Europe (5-10K per night) while at Accenture but now Deloitte won’t allow working outside of the country.

What do you do to maintain health insurance when you lateral to a new firm and there is a month delay in the new coverage commencing? Cobra? The exchange?
Some call it quitting on your team, U.S. Gymnastics are calling it mental health issues. I'm calling it something more specific related to sports psychology: the yips. It's bad athletic performance having the yips, but when continuing can turn you into the next Elena Mukhina, backing out is the right call. Alternate history: Simone continues on, manages not to break her neck, but absolutely s**ts the bed and is criticized for taking the US off the podium when knew she wasn't on her game.
Public finance IB analyst here - since our group is technically part of sales & trading, we weren’t given the same junior bankers raise that the rest were given. Seems pretty unfair imo, does anyone know if this is the same at all firms?
