Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd

Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.

This bowl: USA vs non USA I enjoy a lot of threads in this bowl, but equally a hell of a lot are US specific, and pharma advertising just doesn't work in the same way anywhere else in the world. Would love to know what proportion of the active bowl users are based inside vs outside of the USA? Should threads always have country/city tags where relevant? Edit for clarity, it's not just DTC vs HCP, it's also queries like who's hiring, who's doing good work, process, workload, holidays, etc.
