I did a guided whisky tasting. Everyone received a little hamper with nice things in it and three miniatures of malt whiskies. We had a whisky ambassador conduct a guided tasting explaining the nuances of the different drinks and told funny stories. Was less than the cost per head of a meal. Run totally virtually and a lot of fun

Thanks for the suggestion! Do you know what the name of the whisky tasting was called?

We had a virtual team dinner on zoom. PM ordered a bottle of wine for everyone to their home and everyone ordered food from their favorite restaurant. Not the same but still fun

For us it was fun but we worked well together as a team and also had a couple of weeks on client site before going into WFH mode. Tbh I can’t really see it getting too awkward from my project experience - and if so the wine will take care of that ;)

I have zero work life balance but it’s my fault. I sucked at life for an extended period (depression/covid/unemployment/breakup/family rifts).

Trying to overhaul my life coincides with moving to a new city, jumping to a large firm from boutique experience, a really complex massive client that makes my head spin, no social, etc.

We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff.

And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???
