We-elllll . . . you said to keep it coming . . .

Book clubs (remember those?) used to have a thing called "negative option"
where you would reply only if you DIDN'T want the book sent.

I think that if there is anyone on this list who thinks Chris should stay
at this place, that person should write and say so. Otherwise, Chris,
please assume that ALL of us think you should leave. Call your recruiter
(or not). And definitely do not feel that you have to add this to your
resume.

And yes, we have all been there. (I have even been at Deloitte!)

And do let us know what happens!

Christine
