If you actually attended the leadership calls/ town halls, they have admitted that there was a period where it was "pronounced". All I am saying is, that is over. It's up or out from here on out.

Up or out is only for Strategy&

Personally I'd be thrilled with up or out. So much dead weight still in this firm.

Per leadership, there will not be any further pronounced right sizing. Rather, you can expect that people will be asked to leave due to performance throughout the year (as it was before).

Effective use of colloquialisms there.

Not that I've heard of in the Chicago market.

PwC 4 that's funny because that's exactly as it was before.

If they follow up or out, does that mean faster track to PPD?

They say that. But it could change at any second

Cons:

- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck

- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.

Since 2017 my crypto has ballooned to >5% of my liquid NW (of which ~58% ETH and 40% BTC).

I AM a believer/LT HODLer but with possible political risk over the medium-term, I'm wondering whether now is an appropriate time to put some stop loss orders in place to protect gains.

So, if you wanted to limit downside risk while letting the positions run to the upside, where would you set your limit orders?

I was considering
ETH @ $1,000
BTC @ $25,000

Is it typical to get a year end raise, even if you are not getting promoted? For example, I’ve been at my current rank for one year and am close to next level. My value is higher since I am more experienced but still billed as a senior analyst. Is it reasonable to ask my employer for a raise? My reasoning as follows:
- My work quality has significantly improved since last year
- 90% utilized this year
- Current pay is below market value
- No harm in asking
