P1: I’m curious for your view on why the W2 distinction matters. I’m a partner elsewhere - not MBB or B4 - on a W2 and it never occurred to me that this was something I should care about one way or the other.

P1: you’re describing exactly how my comp works on W2. My 2021 comp was baked (and communicated to me) in January of last year irrespective of my performance for the year. My performance last year will help determine my 2022 comp. And so on… which sounds pretty much exactly the same.

I like being on a W-2. Not filing taxes in 50 states; able to invest where I want (with some restrictions but fewer); true global partnership rather than siloed by country company.

Yes. I much prefer being a B4 partner.
