That’s pretty immature. It achieves nothing. It’s basically a circle jerk for the creative team. The rest of us just sit there and applaud their artistry and vision and continue on thanklessly. The majority of it is during company hours, and it’s where your company wants you to be. Pitching a hissy fit and boycotting is petty

Huh? Why boycott Town Hall?

Lol wut

Lol boycott as in picketing outside of the venue, or as in just not showing up?

Possibly a very stupid question but here it goes: just accepted a an exempt position. I’m supposed to be working 40 hours a week and 1650 billable hours a year. Obviously it’ll be more hours during busy season. My question is am I still required to work 40 during non busy season as long as I get my 1650 throughout the year? Is that different from firm to firm?

I have an MPH from a top program and almost 2 YOE on the provider-side. I’m currently interviewing for roles at consulting firms and I’m trying to figure out if I should get an MBA in the next few years. Some of the advice I’ve gotten thus far is that I should only get an MBA if I don’t want to stay in healthcare. Thoughts? Would an MBA from a top program give me significantly more market value, considering I may already get an offer from a great consulting firm soon?
