Court/depos in other offices more. 3rd female law school classmate (acquaintance) that I haven’t seen in 6-7 yrs came in for HUG? I obviously don’t mind it, but wonder if it’s as awk for them? 🤔

Does anyone have a purely subjective end of year bonus? We just got very large base increases with a pure subjective end of year. Used to be objective but wasn’t massive. Like 7-8%.

How do I lessen the resentment I feel towards associates who do subpar work, or take lots of vacation? Being more successful and making more money only goes so far.

What is everyone’s take on working remotely? It seems that some firms are open to the idea while other firms really value the face-to-face time. Interested to hear different perspectives...
