That’s awesome OP! I had a similar trust your partner victory this week - my boyfriend/roommate has been doing virtual therapy from our apt and writing his notes in a notebook. He had to join a work meeting right after his session and left his book out - saw my name and instead of reading it just closed it. I was super tempted even just out of curiosity but resisted the urge.

Clients with toxic cultures: how have you dealt with them? We have a compliance client with a serious culture issue- they regularly throw each other and our team under the proverbial bus, throwing escalations around etc. I am one of the junior partners and suggested having an open dialogue with our C-suite contact to discuss constructive ways of working, at the very least… but the senior partner has vetoed it. Our team morale is pretty bad and we’ve had a couple of people leave because of it.

Recruiters, please take 2 minutes and read over a resume! People will not respond/ghost you if you’re clearly just pumping KPIs and reaching out with no real intent to hire. Even just the last 5 years you’ve seen this industry going the opposite direction…all about numbers, they don’t care who gets the job. As soon as I see agency, I RUN now.

Still, nervous about leaving a big recognizable place and about an absolutely different career path—would love to hear your thoughts!
