Mike here. I only have a few minutes before I have to join another call but I just had an informal meeting with client and we need to come with a recommendation on how they can levitate and defy the laws of gravity. John, can you reach out to some SMEs and find out if we have any eminence out there on this or other projects that may have done something similar. Let's put a deck together with how we came up with our recommendation. Can y'all have this to me by Monday? I'll be at a PPD offsite the next few days but will look for it in my inbox over the weekend. Okay, gotta jump guys but great work so far and keep it up! 🖕🏻

I’m so tired of getting paired up with copywriters who over write everything. Whatever happened to subtlety and simplicity. Buuuuuut, it pays so much better than full time. Amirite?

Best way to deal with a doorman you don’t like? There is one (among other doormen who are nicer) in my building that is always condescending towards me as if he’s asserting dominance. Many times he would yell at me to pick up the packages when clearly I’m occupied/going outside. I’m the type that don’t interact with doormen unless necessary so wonder if it’s his way of getting attention. I always feel uneasy interacting with him but feel like I have no choice because I like staying where I am.

BCG Platinion vs. EY? I just received an offer from BCG Platinion, but it would require me to relocate which I really don’t want to do. I’m also in the final round at EY who would let me stay put. I was initially a lot more excited about BCG, but having to move is almost a deal breaker. Would I be stupid for turning down this offer? Comp and position is similar between the two.

When it comes to the digitization of healthcare, how important is it to have tech exp vs. healthcare exp? I understand it’s ideal to have both, but healthcare seems so far behind other industries. Is it better to go into tech for a few years and then go back to healthcare and try to become a change agent?

Are you overworked, underpaid, and under appreciated? Well you’re in luck (maybe) as PwC is hiring! I am offering referrals now.
