You must answered physical touch 🤔

I responded with "What the hell is that?" Apparently they thought I was a physical touch person. I'm not.

Mine is touch. But I don't touch people in the audit room or in professional situations at all really. Wish I could, but I feel like the current American position would lead to me facing sexual harassment charges. With these long hours at work that means I'm not getting those recommended 10 meaningful touches in a day and just withering up inside. And dying.

Not so sure I want to be touched at work or be talking about my love language; very strange 😉 to each there own i guess, maybe your boss was desperate to connect with his team.

Ha interesting. I wouldn't have asked what your "love" language is tho. There are much better ways of asking the type of feedback you want.

You should have said "receiving gifts". ;)

Quality time! ... To spend far, far away from the audit room

I recently got my friend hired (1-week in) at my workplace and turnaround is all time high right now (darn Covid, 3 people left since I've joined for 7 months), but I'm gonna be talking to a recruiter as a salary offer came up for 50% higher than my current workplace. I feel really bad if this opportunity actually comes true as 50% increase to salary is ridiculous not to consider. I feel horrible and don't want to burn bridges and I like the people & manager I work with. What should I do?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

I have accepted an offer for the role of Director of Data Science & Analytics and I'll be working with old colleagues. I am very excited. I haven't given notice yet because I am waiting for the background check to complete, but my boss just asked me about traveling to a meeting in November. I start at the new job Oct 25. I'm really struggling for how to respond. If I were not leaving it is absolutely a meeting I should be at. I don't want to respond with a lie. Any dvice on how to respond?
