“Flush out” instead of “flesh out”. It’s bad enough when it’s right, but just reminds me of a toilet when you use the wrong word.

Synergy. I thought it was dead and gone but it resurfaced in a deck today. Horrid.

I’m working on a deck that we are referring to as The Synergy Deck because of how many times the word was used in the kickoff

"high-level" which I've noticed can actually mean contradictory things depending on the context.

Hi fellow auditors! Recently received offers from PwC AWM & EY FSO - Insurance, both S1, in US mid central region. Thrilled about both but from what I’ve seen in the bowl, neither is ideal when it comes to WLB (which I’m mentally prepared for given it’s PA). They also seem to be quite specialized with limited exits. Would greatly appreciate if anyone could please share some insights/experience! Thx in advance
