Consulting friend: I travel for work so much that I have points to take care my holidays to Europe. Iove my job for that UA friend: I love my job too. I don't have to travel to earn for one vacation's tickets. All my vacations are free. I work at United Airlines. Awkward silence 😅

Would have been more awkward if your consulting friend said his father got beat up and dragged off a plane, so now he can fly anywhere for free

$1.5M client and new “profitability tool” showing %0 profit. Credit split 50/50 btw 20 year attorney/equity partner (JEP) and a much more senior/connected EP (SEP). Both SEP and JEP developed separate workstreams unrelated to the other. SEP‘s was terminated 3 years ago and only accounts for $200K trail off of the $1.5M. SEP’s salary is 3 times JEP’s. Profitability tool “costs” are not transparent, suspect SEP’s high salary is a factor. Anything (other than typical overhead) to ask about?
