If they close deals

Yeah, I guess you don’t really know for sure if they’re going to leave, but at least you can find out if there are good MDs in the firm, if they joined recently and are building out a group, or get a feel for people’s experiences in your networking/interviews. It will still be an outsider’s perspective until you actually work there but other than deal press releases, talking to people in the firm will probably be your best data points about how active they are deals-wise.

In the context of self consciousness: as for me that is really cool, work in this kind of place, love the transparency, the unity and the absence of feeling “too far away” from the CEO and director, we have an open space so that everyone can be seen and easily talked to, suppose such is preferred in small boutiques In the context of fees it depends on the boutique, so can’t help with that

Can someone explain how the MRNA vaccine is supposed to be a silver bullet despite increasing evidence that naturally produced antibodies from COVID-19 do not confer lasting protection? I know that it is made using a different method than the old “dead virus particles” method - is this method theoretically able to confer immunity to any pathogen?
