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?

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.
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?
I’ve worked in house for my whole career thus far. I’ve never worked in Big Law. I never wanted to and I never never understood why others did and do. If you work in Big Law, why do you do it? Will you always do it?
If it's so elite how come Susman is so low on Vault? There are other small outfits (e.g. Boies, Quinn, Wachtell) that are highly ranked
Anyone else skeptical Personal Capital? Feel like there are so many risks giving sensitive info. But also would be nice to have an app with net worth dashboards and accounts syncing.
I’m starting at a new company on Monday, but have an MBB interview this week. Should I cancel the interview? Can I essentially “pause” my candidacy to continue the process in a year or so?
Everyone’s holiday party looks so lit on snap 😩😩😩 ..hey 🐠 s can I crash one of your holiday parties, I mean we’re all consultants I can fit in.
MBB Cyber practices - what type of services do you all provide? Is it mainly CEO level stuff or the typical CIO / CISO stakeholders? What’s the culture like?
Question about exit timing. Currently running a work stream and had tentative exit date set as a few weeks before work stream finished up. That exit gave me a few weeks of time off before transitioning to next role. Should I reduce that time off to finish up the work stream? Trying not to burn bridges. If you were a manager, how would you react?
This group is likely biased but has anyone had sex outside their marriage and found it was beneficial in some way / not harmful? Were you caught or did you keep it under wraps?
When you get into work and the client has all the lights dimmed all morning. They know. #gocubsgo
Currently at an MBB, recruiter reached out about an opportunity with Goldman Sachs executive office on their conflicts resolution group (similar to compliance) - worth interviewing for?
I enjoy the work I am doing, but I feel like I’m not being challenged enough or learning as much as I could be. I’m an associate and got a 1 rating this year. Is it time to try to jump over to MBB?
I feel like people think I’m stupid when I tell them I don’t like to read. There’re so many other activities so I don’t get why some people place so much importance on reading alone.
So I have the virus but I don’t want ppl at work in my business. I’ll be online first thing in the morning.
