Struggling with my husband about his pot smoking. Long story short, he's always been a pot smoker (not during the business hours, but before and after work). Before we had the baby, Ive made it very clear that I dont want him smoking weed so frequently. I understand wanting to unwind before dinner/bed time, but I believe smoking several times a day is unhealthy.

Hey team requesting help with evaluating exit ops: 1.) Corp Dev role (VP). 200 base, 22% bonus and some bps of fully diluted float. Comes out to ~100k annually at current valuation.

Thanks in advance for your responses!
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.

I have an offer from MBB at my MBA program but I’d lose my sponsorship with LEK if accepted (they won’t match it). Interviewed for exposure. How easy would it be to lateral to MBB after I put in 2 post-years with LEK? Are the cases a little more relaxed then? The FOMO😖
