The most interesting part of consulting to me is being dropped into entirely new teams where no one knows each other and immediately having to adjust to a new team culture.

@P1: I wouldn't want one manager/PPD to bring me along to all their projects - you get more variety by mixing it up. And a bigger network.

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work?

My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn. I feel like because this language is so limited in words to understand our culture, it restricted several generations to learn beyond what we know today about our country and culture. I feel cheated 😭😞
