A golden retriever just hoodwinked me - athenslife101
Guy was walking his golden retriever. As we passed, the dog sat on my foot and looked up at me for a head pat. As soon as my hand touched his head, he had rolled over for a belly rub. I feel tricked...

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - athenslife101
Let Gasely stay where he is. He obviously feels comfortable being the lead driver and doesn’t like being the #2 driver. Where that’s an improvement could he go where he’s the #1 driver? Alpine? Don’t know if that’s a step up from at AT car....

re: Morgan Stanley CEO to bankers: If you want NYC salary, you need to be in NYC - athenslife101
Fwiw, my company is going to a hybrid schedule which will be... interesting. You will only have to come in 2-3 days of the week into the office and WFH the other days. I guess that’s a concession?...

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - athenslife101
Williams going through a big reorg announced this week. They did a lot of analysis and figured out that the car designers and the people on the racing side didn’t talk to each other at all anymore and haven’t for like 3-4 years. There used to be a director who was an intermediary between the two gro...

[quote]You people all act like you aren’t replaceable[/quote] Talent may not be the best word but I think you highly underestimate the knowledge it needs to do some of these jobs. It certainly is not a quick process to build up that knowledge and simply put, it’s a huge risk right now and it stre...

re: Morgan Stanley CEO to bankers: If you want NYC salary, you need to be in NYC - athenslife101
Well, I know JPM and BoA have been pretty open about saying they were going to continue to reduce office space in NY until pretty much just sales staff and high value front office staff were left. Now it’s been a long time since I heard that so I don’t know if it’s true still but no reason why not....

No, but you are usually seen as less valuable. I cannot overstate how important networking has become as banks continue to shift further and further into advanced fintech. Not to say networking can’t be done remote but there’s no doubt it’s much harder. ...

re: Morgan Stanley CEO to bankers: If you want NYC salary, you need to be in NYC - athenslife101
I work for a bank. I asked to work remotely full time rather than return to the office of a few months and I was told only established management were allowed to do that. Also, the understanding is that if you do work remotely, your probably the first one fired if it comes to layoff. The people ...

re: “Under promise and over deliver” or “fake it til you make it?” - athenslife101
Yeah, but I have a hard time in edta listing who I am. Like I have gotten feedback that I’m good but slow. But I don’t think the people who gave me the feedback know how slow I am or realize how uncomfortable I can be at times. I think my value lies in other facets but those aren’t a point of discus...

re: “Under promise and over deliver” or “fake it til you make it?” - athenslife101
It depends on the situation. But you’re really shite out of luck when you find yourself in a position when people depend on you being exceptional and you can’t produce. I’m way too honest for my own good but I have no doubt I’d bite off more than I could chew if I wasn’t ...

Welcome is a weird word - athenslife101
People don’t use welcome very often anymore. And I think a lot of that is because it’s a difficult word. I made a post years ago about how I thought saying NP instead of your welcome was a bit too informal and got called out for it, Per the definitions, [quote]Dictionary Definitions from...

re: Resume job titles? - athenslife101
I don’t disagree. But I also think it’s not as simple as that. The products I produce for my clients are confidential and my clients are confidential. And what goes into me creating those products is confidential. Our clients rate is as part of a larger service package, size of the client is not an...

re: Resume job titles? - athenslife101
I mean, honestly, for my position, it’s 90% client service a job title or a job description won’t accurately portray all the work we have to do. It’s only through conversations that you really understand all the work we do. i.e. our main competitive advantage is we allow our clients to set things ...

re: Resume job titles? - athenslife101
Well, technically the job responsibilities aren’t different in any way. The main difference is the sr is supposed to be able to operate more independently and handle a larger workload with much more involved deliverables. I actually don’t produce that many deliverables though because I am more of a ...
