How do you know when it’s time to leave? I’m a 4th year and I had very little work this year so far (obviously in part due to covid) and I feel that I’m doing a ton of non billables. I’m also a POC so feel that I shoulder a lot of the “diversity” extra curriculars my white colleagues don’t have. I’ve gotten great reviews but the partners I tend to work for aren’t the rainmakers. My hesitation is that there’s good work life balance here and I’m well liked..

Work BURNOUT… LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. So a little back story. I am 38 a full full time single mom. I work about 60 hours per week. I do not get child support. My employer currently expects me to bring in 15 new customers & 100 existing every month… minimum. I have realized with my upcoming paid time off that I am burnt out. I recently have had no motivation to produce because I so desperately need a break. I sell internet and am the 2nd top producing rep in the region. Opinions to get my mojo back.

I’m nice to juniors, respecting boundaries and understanding and all that. Just behaving how I wished seniors were like to me. That’s me trying to change the culture or whatever. Now I get stuck with the needs of the older generation of lawyers who don’t have the concept of boundaries and I’m always exhausted lol kinda understand now why my seniors then were like that, cos they didn’t want to experience the situation I’m in now 😅

Hi there - could use some advice. I signed my offer letter and submitted my background investigation information on 3/4. My tentative start date is 4/12. I have not yet put in my 2 weeks notice because I am waiting for written confirmation from my recruiter that I am cleared for hire. I have asked for written confirmation once my background check is finalized, but my recruiter seems to skirt around the question. 1. Is this something deloitte will provide to me?

Non Partner Track jump?
I was hired this May (during finals week) to a big law firm with a small practice group in this office. Was told I’d be NPT since I didn’t summer there. Was told there’s a small chance I could jump over “later.” Met with the head partner here and he said I’d realistically have to wait 2 years to make a jump if I even get the chance. My issue is I’m getting paid less and doing the same work/billables. Should I start looking elsewhere? Wait out? Thoughts? Have more details

Need some advice - I had an internal investigation of a company associate and we found out he had pedophilia charges and was on the sex offender registry. We terminated him for cause but now I'm being told by some of the other executives to reinstate him, but hide it under someone else's name.


Feels very shifty to me and I'm pretty morally opposed to doing so. How would anyone else handle something like this?

22 M. Never dated/been with someone. Started talking with a girl for a week. Today, we decided to meet and I brought her home. She did give a lot of hints and was super friendly. After bringing her home, played some music and we kissed. But my dog started barking and growling incessantly. He was too jealous. Tried everything, gave him treats, sent him to backyard but just didn't let us have a nice time. I could scored a home run but she was fed up with the breaks and I didn't want to push her.

I had to move my PTO, because of a change in plans. So, when I needed to push my 2 day PTO request out by 3 weeks, my boss was upset. This is my first PTO in 2 yrs. But, I was told “there may be issues that arise in 3 weeks that will need to be handled” and “this is why we schedule and fix PTO ahead of time”. Is 3 weeks advance notice not “ahead” enough? 🫠 For 2 days?! I have given this team 70hr weeks for 2 yrs. I feel stupid 🤡

I don’t think bad smells are really a thing. I think it’s psychological. I know what smells are supposed to be bad but the smells don’t bother me. I always thought it was just me but I have 2 kids now and when someone farts in front of them they don’t flinch, notice or care, even if it’s a really bad one. Feels like once someone around them starts to say “eww” they’ll realize that’s a thing to say around a “bad smell” and go on to do that for the rest of their lives like we all do.

Had a bad breakup 1 year ago, where given lies and him hiding our relationship to his circle and fam I impulsively initiated a breakup. He happily accepted and the next day, as I suggested reconciliation, told me “you need to move on. I'm sure you’ll be happier with someone new in 6 months.” It was rough, and i knew i wasn’t a perfect version of myself. I went through therapy throughout lockdown, lots of healing work, installed Mend. Now that I’m happy being single and focus on other aspects..
