Folks - there was a lot of chat in global (US) BCG Bowl about how great the long term benefits are in BCG (e.g., health insurance for xx years after retirement, annual income to MDPs after retirement…) Apparently all this info was supposed to be in some (US)HR microsite. Do you know where does this information reside in SEA portals? Context:
The San Diego Zoos 2020 Audited FS (CohnReznick) excludes a disclaimer of opinion, and gives a fully unmodified opinion, however the balance sheet shows a $1 balance for all revenue producing zoological assets with a disclosure explaining there is no objective basis for establishing value, however Sea World does have their aquarial assets on their Balance Sheet. Plus the SD Zoo uses ZIMS to track all their animals, including all attributes (ages, sex etc) which the fs says is not possible. WTF
