Your synergy seems off. Let’s touch base next week so that I can empower you to work harder. We will need to think outside the box in this paradigm shift and apply some work/life best practices. It is what it is on the current situation but we need to raise the bar at the end of the day.
Keep up the good work and always give your 110%.

Work in “we don’t know what we don’t know “

Some people don’t think/realise it is what it is, though.
It is painfully obvious but sometimes you need to tell people ‘stop thinking you can change the past. We are here, no where else, so let’s deal with that and not wish away the problem’.

N=1,000 but the precision is at n= 10,000. If the question was what phrases do you hate? Or list the phrase you hate, you can’t get to the hundredth decimal with a thousand people.

Public accounting is one crisis after another, leaving most people in constant survival mode with no time to reasses their life.

After 4/18, take some time off. Sit alone with your thoughts. Consider the life path that you're on. Are you moving in the right direction? When you look back on your life, will you be happy with the amount of hours you worked? Is it worth at least putting some feelers out there in industry to see what's on the other side?

You have the power to change your life.

I Have an offer with level 4 (Lead Analytics Consultant ) designation in Wells Fargo and 12 years of IT experience. Is it appropriate according to my experience or should I ask for next level?

Fellow 🐠, want to get some perspective. I am analytics manager and have gotten 2 offers in industry - as analytics manager and as product manager - 30% lower pay for product manager. I feel analytics/data science is getting democratized/commoditized and won't be as lucrative in the future. Would you switch tracks ? Interested to hear opinions for and against. Both roles are in Bangalore, India if that helps.

While I enjoyed my latest position in more of an auditing role, I am thoroughly over working a production environment. Where do I go from here? I live in SoCal & have worked remote for 11yrs & want to continue. I've yet to exceed $60k & really need to.
