Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

I too agree with the jadagulian description of the 2-4 problem and think more broadly we don’t handle any kind of sanction where reason would suggest we apply one time punishment then move on. Everything that is subject to public opinion becomes eleventy. The actual complexion of life contains far m...

Just the Tax

It is a classic example of the anchoring in the current tax system.

In our org, full cube was tall walls you can’t see over while standing forming aisles, with cubes in the aisles separated by walls you can’t see over while seated but can see over when standing. This creates a little neighborhood in each aisle kinda. Half cubes reduced the separation barrier between...

Re: Just the Tax

It is not uncommon for say board members or executives to have a plan that makes payments in RSUs taxable at vesting but also a non qualified arrangement that allows you do defer shares until separation of service. Taxability of RSUs in such deferred arrangements is essentially the same as taxation ...

Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

Religion is fair. That was off top of head kinda thing based on recent stories. I think the idea of a powerful career gatekeeper and the general absence of something like HR which creates institutional barriers (which yes can fail) will be correlated features.
