I am embarrassed by our firm’s response. And all of our firms that remain open in cities with community spread are contributing meaningfully to the problem. It’s even more ludicrous we’re still traveling. WE. NEED. TOP. DOWN. LEADERSHIP. Citizen deaths are not a case by case, client by client decision.

MAGA friends, why does every conversation with you about COVID and the US Covid response include a claim that it’s China’s fault? Let’s say I grant your premise. How does COVID being China’s fault make the Trump response seemingly better? There are a number of things the president has to respond to that he did not directly cause - are you suggesting we don’t want someone capable of responding to events they did not have a hand in crafting?

Have a sales strategy offer from a reputable software company. It pays 15k more than what I make now and remote with monthly travel.

Do your teams make it a practice to maintain ongoing knowledge transfer on your projects? Specifically, ensuring you have playbooks created or process steps outlined so that if anything were to happen to you or someone else....the job continues without interruption? Or do you wait until the moment you’re about to roll off to do all that?
