I'm starting month 5 at my firm & it's been VERY slow. I'm barely hitting 100 hours a month. While I enjoy taking it slow because I'm burnt out, I'm very concerned that I won't even meet my prorated annual billables. I ask for work & have been told I'm gonna get super busy but it hasn't happened. They say we have work & are hiring 1-2 new attorneys yet I don't get work. I'm not sure what to do or make of this. I have voiced my concerns to my partner (who's leaving) & was told I'd get work

Hi. I have 20+ years of experience both in consulting and in-industry. I have a contact at McKinsey that I connected with that is willing to make an introduction/referral for me. A few questions: 1). What level should I be targeting. I’m willing to take a lateral to a degree because. . .well, it’s McKinsey, but I don’t want to come in too low salary wise and somehow undercut the value of the experience and the roles I’ve already held (VP/DVP). As such - is Associate Partner too low? 2….

I just wanna say: never underestimate the ability of a toxic partner to infect an entire team and how much it will affect your well-being. I just got out and it is INCREDIBLE. You are not crazy, and you deserve better. Be strong. Stay true to yourself, and look for your exit.

Is anyone very afraid of graduating from mid-level to “senior?” I feel like the lateral market is not as great for seniors and looking to lateral at years 7+ seems like you are just leaving bc you won’t make partner, and if you do leave the partner clock starts all over again. Are there better exit options as a senior from litigation to in house?

I'm a little annoyed. there are sooo many Instagram accounts for moms-to-be, new moms but not a single account for dad-to-be or new dad's, the dad accounts I did find were all based on funny memes with kids. Not a single account with how to care for a baby or how to be a supportive pregnancy partner or parenting. This research basically started because my husband said he doesn't need to know all these things as it's a woman's role and lack of similar accounts men is proof that he doesn't need to

Interviewing for a role I am qualified for. During the second round of interviews (4.5 hours) one partner could not make his time slot.
