Anyone like legal match? I’m an experienced estate planning attorney and curious about it
Currently working at the firm I have a training contract with in a year or two. What can I do to lay groundwork for when I start as a trainee?
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)? I’m an Enterprise AM currently (6+ years of total closing experience in SaaS) but looking to make a change sometime in the next 18-24 months. Certainly expecting to sacrifice financial upside but growing tired of the grind.
I am talking on the phone with a sales rep who’s working for a company I am interview at. Same team even- we don’t know each other. I have a list of questions to ask to truly understand the role, manager, company. What else should I be asking?
Would a successful law firm disregard every opportunity in a location to disregard it as another attorney's territory? Or would they go at it anyway for the bounds of monopoly at least?? Confused!?
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?
Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.
To all my HRBP in this bowl,
What are your top 2 KPIs in each areas of:
1) Talent Acquisition
2) Employee Engagement
3) Discipline and Grievance Redressal
4) Performance Management
5) Reward and Recognition
Can you please your personal set KPIs in your roles?
Thanks in advance
Non-exempt employee? After interviewing for a sales position for a SaaS company, I received an offer. The recruiter made it sound like it was a salary, when I received the offer, I come to find out that they pay “hourly” as a non-exempt employee. Has anyone ever worked as a non-exempt employee before? I think I’m going to dislike tracking my hours. They do pay “overtime” though.
What kind of notice do we need to give to quit? I am an associate in a smallish firm, 10 admin or paralegals, 4 attorneys and the owner attorney, who doesn’t actually practice but considers himself a rainmaker. He just brings in all the business, and piles the work on us. Problem is he will take any case if he thinks they can pay, and he only cares about the new money coming in the door. We are all overworked and overwhelmed to the point that we are missing things and making mistakes.

Looking at clerking options; what do people think about 8th or 10th circuit appellate versus SDNY/EDNY?
Ha, in reference to the earlier post.
Working on a presentation re. legal ethics in 2020. Anyone heard of anything interesting we should include?
Is it too late to negotiate an offer that I accepted to go in house? I start in 3 weeks. Gave notice to my firm and they offered equity partnership but I’d rather pass on that. Now I received another in house offer a bit higher than the one I accepted. Is it too late to renegotiate the first offer? The first in house offer seems a lot more desirable to me but the second in house offer might be okay too, although I would not accept it unless they go higher because of some WLB downsides. Thoughts?

Cloud solutions architect question for anyone involved in this.
Does it matter which cloud service provider you choose to learn and grow as a solutions architect? From a foreigner’s standpoint, one would think the skill set required for cloud solution design and migration work which is what a solutions architect
Does, should be the same across different cloud services (Oracle SAP AWS Azure, etc). Like if you learn one, it’s easy to jump to another. Lmk if this understanding is wrong.
I am interviewing for my dream job this week. It's stressful but exciting. There's a certain amount of guilt I feel though about interviewing for a job while working for my current company. Is there a way around that guilt or any of the feelings of inadequacy I am feeling right now?
Recruiting for AE role. Two good, qualified candidates have personal/friendship connections to two different day-to-day client contacts. What do you guys think? Potential issues? I’m a little nervous.

29F going in to the office tomorrow for the first time (I started remote) and I’m extremely anxious because I’ve gained ~35 lbs in the last 6 months and am scared to meet new people. For context I was already 25 lbs overweight so now I am honestly just very very overweight/probably obese. So far on Zoom this hasn’t mattered because nobody can see anything… I feel crazy asking this but any tips for how to feel confident? I have honestly forgotten how to project confidence in the office
Having struggles in handing multiple clients work. Those 50% 50 % split is a joke and I am just feeling not doing 100% for either job. Plus additional BD work, any suggestions in switching mode?

Any Ops in Florida? Looking to make a change
I’m new to the freelance world & have a question about staffing agencies. A recruiter reached out to me about a job. It was a good gig so I told him to put me up for it. Unfortunately (continue)
Thought: Should companies not give full time offers to incoming interns if that means they will be able to layoff a smaller number of workers who are qualified to do their job and not underperforming?
