Thoughts on senior associates from large firms leaving to be a partner at smaller firms? Have had some discussions with smaller firms, and excited about the prospect of more flexibility and balance, but concerned about leaving the stability and income.

I manage an extremely successful firm. I’ve approached the firm for a raise in the last 6 months they’ve refused to give me a raise until I agree to commit to the firm but I don’t want to. Is it fair?
Favorite easy Thanksgiving recipes? I was asked to bring a side dish for my family's meal and have this evening only to plan, shop, and cook. Easily-transportable please (no soups). Thanks fam!!
On the topic of SERP describing the runway opinion as absolutely no college, stay trafficked, I've included a list of orgs I am starting to work with for bridge advocacy. Can anyone think of others?
What kind of music do kids listen to these days?? Is EDM still a thing? Trying to find common ground with first years and feeling old af
Anyone here use the blackberry work app for work, and have issues receiving notifications from the app on their iPhone? Just started having this issue and the IT at my firm don’t know how to fix it 🤦🏽♀️
Any advice on exploring career options within law? Current corporate biglaw, I enjoy my firm but hate the 24/7 fire drills that come with firm life. I don’t know if in-house would get boring over time. No idea what to work towards anymore.
I’m almost a second year attorney in family law. I have made brief appearances in hearings, but nothing really major. I am an outgoing person and have no problem working out issues and speaking to the partner and senior associates. However, I have so much anxiety about court, particularly long arguments. I am extremely nervous and feel like I’m going to freeze. I do believe I’m capable, but I feel like I have a long way to go. Any tips? I’m doing great in all other areas more or less.
I accepted an offer before all this mayhem started. Now I am wondering if I made a mistake. How are partners going to get to know me if we all are working from home...how will I even be onboarded...
Do partners realize that by engaging and building a relationship with their associates allows for greater ease when dealing with workflow issues? I’m at a small boutique. I am new. I also try and learn things on my own and follow up with my partner when I need guidance. Most people I read here have extreme anxiety and depression revolving around communications with their partners.
Are there any gig economy and doc review resources besides Posse List, Court Buddy, Lawclerk Legal, local legal aid, etc.? Having trouble finding gigwork. Could use some leads, and if any attorneys here need to contract out legal research I’m happy to take $10 an hour to do it.
Why don’t law firms offer reviews of your bosses. It shouldn’t be a one way street where there’s appraisals of employees. I feel that would hold them accountable to certain standards.
Anyone work as a mediator or arbitrator as part of their practice? Anything a jr associate can do early in their career to head in that direction?
The requirement to send a daily timesheet report to thpartners in my practice group has forced me to actually sit down and get stuff done. Good for business! (Spent the first days mostly freaking out)
They say the reward for good work is more work. Well, it’s beginning to feel like a punishment because I’m drowning. But I have no idea how to turn down assignments, and I definitely feel like I need to because the quality of my work is declining as I become spread thin. Thoughts on how I can go about managing my workload without ruffling feathers?
Anyone else see their AAdvantage account miles/dollars/ status drop this morning? Last night it showed me Platinum Pro; this morning it shows me as Gold with only 738 miles traveled.
How can we get Delta to do a better job updating the status of their flights? Getting tired of them not acknowledging delays, getting to the gate at boarding time to find plane isn't even there.
Any Fidelity “Financial Consultants” or “Investment Consultants” out there? Curious about the ins and outs. How much if any autonomy, salary and so on. Thanks
hate Delta, signed up for fast track promo via ACN in Aug, the sys shows I registered in March.The promo supposed to last 6months of registration date so just ended..called Delta and they said nope.
Is it just me or does American Airlines need a different in-flight safety video that isn't so upbeat for their morning flights? That cheer at the end always wakes me up. #ConsultingProblems
What would we be doing / how would we be acting if covid-19 outbreak happened pre-internet? Pre 24hr cable news?
Have a hard time conceptualizing what it means to jump from consulting to industry. Thread for before/after picture of consulting: Role, company, salary, satisfaction, why you jumped, etc. Thanks!
I really like the American Airlines Outstanding Service certificates. I keep a few in my laptop bag to give out when I get great service. And when I get bad service.....
What Gmat mock exams do you recommend taking apart from the GMATprep and other paid additional official mock exams from MBA.com?
Delta Platinum vs American Platinum: which status do you most often get upgraded? I know AA Platinum is easier to attain but I also have Delta/SPG/Uber crossover. Home base is LAX.
I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US. I consider myself extremely talented in the tech field and have contributed to many well used libraries and frameworks but I can’t even get an interview anywhere I apply. Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
Wtf did Delta change with these Comfort+ seats. I'm platinum riding in the back with all the pheasants while 10 comfort+ seats sit empty 🤔
