In college it's plagiarism. In consulting it's "leveraging"

Nah its more like a group project where your group is the company


you mean repurpose


P2- this would probably make the regulators happy


Copied content = proven methodology 🤔


its still plagiarism. amazes me that managers and above dont realize the regulators (SEC, OCC, FED, etc) checking the policies we rewrite will eventually start noticing lots of banks have policies that look strangely similar... 🙄🙈 (relevant for FS risk advisory but im sure for other verticals too)


Once I watched a manager remove the names of other KPMG management from a thought leadership piece, and then insert their names so that they could present it to the client as though they were the group that wrote it. I don't know if they cleared it with the original authors, but that seemed really sleazy.


Yeah, and no one blinks twice!


@PWC2 regulators want the banks to have similar policies and procedures, that would make their job way easier. But the banks are resistant to change and very different from one another, so none of their policies are the same


I expect to see this in the next Fishbowl digest

26. No Debt. Maxing out 401k and maxing out Roth IRA. I have an emergency fund with 6 months worth of living expenses and want to start investing my savings for a down payment on a house.

Problem is, I’m embarrassed that I lack any investing knowledge. I’ve read boggleheads and motley fool and still don’t “get it”. I have $25,000k in additional savings (outside my emergency fund) and was considering an index fund like VOO.

Any other recommendations to diversify my portfolio?


Hi All,
I have been working as mainframe developer for around 8 years. From last year, working on requirement analysis and team management activities. I want to move into java full stack developer profile as I am not interested in management work. I know that being 8+ YOE guy and considering my tech background, it would be difficult to transition, but I am really depressed with my work profile. Please advise how should I transition my career path to a java full stack developer.
