Making Work More Human - A Q&A with ex-KPMG Partners 11/6

Not here to ask a question but can I just say, after having a terrible male PML who several counselees later ended up filing a bullying complaint against, your story was an inspiration. Thank you.

We don’t do any formal pml training and it’s a shame. Not everyone at the director and above level should be a pml, but it expected and needed for progression. A bad or weak pml will absolutely have a negative impact on your career. I have sat in promotion discussions for years.

Yes, very few PMLs are qualified to be PMLs. Only advice I have is find someone you trust and transfer to that person.

The PML is such an important but totally underestimated and underrated job.

How do people balance high stakes project work and interviewing? I am looking at exits to technical roles in tech companies and there is so much prep work involved, I feel I might get burned out. But at the same time I am just fed up of my current job.

We had a Disney World trip scheduled for this November and are going to move it to next year. Any thoughts on when the best time to go would be. I’m wondering if Disney will still have any kind of 50th anniversary celebration and when things might return to normal (parades, meet and greets, fireworks). Any thoughts or predictions?

Anybody else in the north feel like they live in a bubble and have NEVER heard of the proud boys? If you would've asked me who they were two days ago I would have assumed they were some sort of gay men's musical theater act.
