Blue Palace in Crete was awesome. Especially if your platinum +. Pretty much guaranteed room upgrade to a room with your own pool and an awesome free breakfast. Close walk into a small fishing village w great restaurants

Domes Noruz in Crete was good. The hotel was nice, but the beach it was on was only decent. But it was at a good spot on western side of Crete - good for exploring Chania and some of the top beaches on that side. New hotel in Athens was awesome! Great rooftop bar with views. If you have any Hyatt points, they have some really nice hotels in Santorini through SLH

Yeah - I think that would be good. I wanted to do that but we didn’t have enough time in Crete to begin with. I’d maybe consider doing more time at Domes depending on what you’re looking for. I can’t speak for the blue palace but a lot of the top beaches in Crete are more accessible from Chania, not to mention Chania is cool to explore. I can send you some more specific recommendations when I have my laptop tomorrow.

Santa Marina in Mykonos!

Going to Crete and considering both of these properties. Thoughts on 2 nights at Domes Noruz then 5 at Blue Palace? Figured it would be nice to break up the week on both sides of the island.

Awesome context A2, really appreciate it. Don't know much about east vs west side of the island other than how those two resorts look so the Chania context is very helpful. Maybe it makes sense to do more of an even split. I'd lose the 5th night free benefit but that shouldn't drive the itinerary anyway. If you have some specific recommendations I'd certainly appreciate it. Thanks again.

I am watching the RNC convention after watching some of the DNC convention last week. They are opposite. It does seem to me that RNC is much less negative and alive.

I prefer positive politics over negative from Biden.

Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)

I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.

She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?

Imagine for a moment that all strategic consulting firms in the region would have consultants work no later than 9pm. Do you think the quality of the output would decrease? Or maybe the pricing the client is willing to pay would be lower? Or perhaps nothing would happen? I am thinking whether we work long hours because it’s by now part of work approach and culture or because we need to. (Personal experience: in London for my same firm I used to work much less and the output was great…)
