What do you think is more stable in the current market (more recession-proof) - a job in a small boutique estate firm, or a legal position with government?

Anybody read this article? It’s about professor Amy Chua having get togethers with some of her students at YLS. The article focuses on Covid-related gatherings but explains that she had to promise to no longer have events at her home where she invited students and apparently people … gasp … drank alcohol. Since when are law students treated as children? From the sound of it you’d think she was having high school students come hang out. I mean, I was 26 when I went to law school. WTF? https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/07/us/amy-chua-yale-law.html?referringSource=articleShare
I gave notice for my first associate position last week and the managing partner is making my life a living hell. Is this normal? She is making me call every client I have had an interaction with and explain that I am leaving the firm and other weird things. And advice would be appreciated. I only have a few days left but It is very hard to motivate myself at this point.

How does your company tackle insights from org health/engagement surveys? On a team by team basis? Or with org-wide initiatives?
I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?
Is it just me or does anyone sorry worry what's going to come up on a background investigation. Like no matter how many times I do it I'm still worried.
📱iPhone vs Android for a sales career?
Long-time android user here, have been told my lack of facetime ability and blue text messages might be a negative. Thoughts?
I get the rule of “bill everything”. But I worry that I don’t capture enough time. I use a timer program that is helpful and I know I’m working but can’t figure out what to input in the billing to reflect. What are some things you bill for that maybe some people tend forget to include? (Billable and nonbillable)

I follow a bunch of personal finance Instagram accounts and they frequently ask followers what their jobs is if they make $100k. So many interesting answers! I’m considering a career pivot (open to going back to school) and I would love to know what you do if you make over $100k AND do you like it?

How do you approach usability testing for new onboarding sequences? I work with a variety of SaaS businesses and recently requests have come in to test onboarding prototypes.
New users are the first to touch onboarding so how do I recruit the appropriate participants to test? Recruiting new users doesn’t seem feasible, I would think we should run A/B tests and cross-check analytics to measure success? Any insight is appreciated!
Have about 100k to invest. Few thoughts.
1. I could pay 80k towards my home mortgage to get LTV down to 70/30 that would give me a 0.65% reduced interest on 30yr fixed ($4k savings in interest annually) comes out to about 5% return on 80k
2. Invest in stocks - not sure if it’s a good time to get
3. Look at other real estate for investment purpose (have no prior experience/knowledge)
4. Hold for 6 months (election) to figure out.
5. Any other suggestions?

My best friend of 20 years just came out to me this weekend. I've always thought there was a small chance he was gay, but never thought anything if it. More of a running joke between us and our friends.
