Client site/hotel is 1/2 mile from college roommate's house (800 miles from where I live), who I only see 1-2x/year. Drinking golden monkey w/ him & his fiancee for 2nd time this week. Life is good.

AMA making 140k total comp while working ~20 hours a week on a work from home project with a roll off date in 2021.
I feel like some SMs are brainwashed by the client. One I am working with doesn't like people leaving or wfh or going to the home office. Dude I gotta go catch up on my PD work.
Has anyone left Consulting for FAANGU and been happier with the work-life balance? On a shitty project, stuck long hours in a broom closet & I keep romanticizing a standing desk & sleeping in my bed.
I love my client. They have been invaluable partners and have spoiled me, giving me prompt info, insight, timely decisions and kindness. Rolling off this week. It’s like saying good-bye to friends. 😢

Why is it assumed PMs are responsible for scheduling all meetings and taking notes? When did this happen? I was responsible for providing a recap of meetings in the sense of next steps, not in depth notes on the conversation. As for scheduling meetings, I was responsible for scheduling the milestone meetings (kick offs, internal reviews, post mortems, status meetings that I led), I did not schedule the team reviews (CD reviews with ADs/CWs), client meetings, etc. Comments?

I did Keto before I even knew it was Keto. I was on a weird project, alone on-site with the whole team scattered, so I skipped dinner every day and worked out for two hours, woke up and had a giant carb-free breakfast and a spinach salad for lunch. I lost 40lbs before I rolled off... I remember my sweat smelling like ammonia all the time. I'm gonna get into a similar schedule... hopefully it melts off this time again - 10 years later!

So, Trump is giving corporations a 20% tax break and is taking away the tax benefit of contributing to your 401k. So he effectively took our money and gave it to corporations. Take that middle class.
