Let's table this discussion so we can do a deep dive analysis on the due diligence performed on the work product to identify all low hanging fruit which is most impactful leadership and then circle back/touch base with the project team who has the bandwidth to implement changes which will take the work product to the next level in order to provide the most value-add and move the needle.


Yup, nailed it. You sound just like my boss. 😫

“We may need to prostitute ourselves a little bit here” - obviously not normally said, just made me laugh

“ should be pretty easy” or “shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes” wth


Hahaha yes


“Dont stay late on this"


"No need to reinvent the wheel"


"Can you give me more colour around this?”


“This is low hanging fruit”


Tks. Needs some wordsmithing. Let me circle back to you on this.


"We need to make sure we’re comparing apples to apples"


Good question, will take this offline and have the team opine. Will revert back with an answer shortly


“Why dont you take a stab at this?"


“High level”


YES. During my first month in finance, I thought this meant “advanced.” Like if you got to a high level in a video game or something.

When it comes to other social issues I sometimes lean right. I don't think racism in America is as big of a deal as it is claimed to be and I have yet to see irrefutable evidence of "systemic racism" tbh I don't think it exists. I used to be a D but I'm now independent and this "with me or against me" vibe is toxic af
