Does anyone have favorite examples of company responses on Glassdoor? In addition, are companies responding on Fishbowl and if so, are there any best practices you've found or can share?
Graduated May 2021, been at a top tier firm since then. I was supposed to transition to associate after passing the bar (just took feb). Now I’ve found out I’m being let go, with a 4mo runway. Mainly because of conflict with Senior Associate. Any thoughts on possibility of getting hired at another top tier firm even though my bar results are not in? Partner said I shouldn’t have any trouble landing new job, but I’m technically not a lateral so idk how true that is. Would love some feedback.
I have a team member who has a tendency to miss deadlines, is reluctant to take on tasks which they don't like or refuses to participate in company-wide mandates w/o me & the other team members validating the why's. Prior to joining my team, this behavior was alluded to but never told to me directly. Now I'm seeing it. I've discussed missed deadlines which are acknowledged but w/o permanent resolution. I'm going to give her a verbal warning in the upcoming review. Other suggestions?
Currently a transactional junior associate at a v10 from a non brand name law school. Thinking of applying to a top 1 year MBA (maybe Kellogg or NYU) to explore non law career angles. Would ideally like to work at a startup maybe as chief of staff/legal counsel blend? Has anyone done something similar and would the MBA provide any value add in terms of education, network, or not being pigeonholed as a lawyer?
Looking to transition from L&D to Human Resources focusing on DEI. Pros and Cons? Any feedback is welcomed.
I am a mid-level (rising fifth year) real estate associate considering an offer to move in-house. The position is at a company I’m really interested in and would probably provide a significantly better work-life balance. I’m concerned about the pay cut - going from cravath scale to about $175k. Likely no significant bonus potential. I’m interested in hearing any perspectives from those who have taken a similar pay cut - was it worth it to you?
Wondering if anyone has suggestions for welcoming a new Director to our company.
My boss suggested bright colored balloons, but I feel like that's too childish. What are some professional, classy ways to say, "welcome to the team, we're glad you're here"?
I'm going with a greeting card signed by HR and his boss.
Any other thoughts?

Would you ever let your firm/company know that you are looking to leave before you give your two weeks notice?
Here’s my conundrum, I have a great relationship with my boss, company, and upper management. I’m planning to switch jobs so I can relocate closer to family. I have some interviews coming up, and already have an offer in hand, so leaving is a foregone conclusion. My boss is going to be blindsided when I tell them I’m leaving - I can’t overstate how great our relationship is. Thoughts?

Hey fellow attorneys! I am a second year attorney who has recently accepted a job within a firm that I am absolutely ecstatic about. However, my first year of practice was highly supervised and I was given no cases of my own (Always worked the cases with major supervision and micromanaging by partners in my previous firm). I am worried about being able to do solo cases individually and whether I know enough to be in charge of cases. Anyone else experienced this? Or have any advice? Thank you!
Hello! How are people working through promotions? Covid or non-Covid timelines are fine. Particularly within the Early in Career Track (associate to Sr. Associate). How long does it take to get to the next level and what comp range? Thanks in advance!!!
Currently, I manage one practice group in my office, but practice in several areas. I’m having a meeting Monday with firm leadership about transitioning to manage the entire office. It’s the firm’s only office in the state. I’ll have 1 LA, 3 Paras, 4 associates, 1 partner to manage. We continue to grow and will hire more. It’s another step on my path to equity partnership. Any recommendations on what to ask during the meeting? Salary? Perks? Red flags? Mid-Atlantic regional firm, 120 attorneys.

I'm currently on a team with a bunch of straight forward aggressive women and it's been one of the BEST experiences of my life!!!
It helps me really see that I get along so well with just no-BS kind of women.
It's also been such a positive experience for me because until now I thought I only knew how to get along with men.
But now I see it isn't the case and although some of my best experiences have been working with men it's just been such a great experience working with women.
Hii Sharks, I am currently with 12 L fixed and due for promotion within 6 months then my fixed might go with around 15.5 L with extra variable pay in PwC only. In pwc WFH option is there.
Now I got offer from KPMG where there are giving 16 L fix + 1 L JB. Also HR gave one day more to discuss. In KPMG need to go office at Bangalore.
Now is it worth to switch KPMG with that package by considering WOO, tax 30% effect ?
What amount I can tell KPMG to make my switch from PWC ?
Help me leads.

I may be overthinking this but need some advice - I have a timed case test with a bank wednesday but my calendar is filling up. Will it reflect poorly if I ask them to push it to thurs? I can still manage at the moment but I feel like I’ll perform better if I can get some breathing room before the case is supposed to start

tips for giving notes on a directors treatment?
Just wanna say this bowl has been a frequent source of encouragement and advice for me, both work and non work related. I’m here for advice on being called ‘aggressive’ at work. I keep getting feedback from one associate I work with that my elbows are too sharp. Feedback keeps finding its way to me from other people. Examples include when I asked her about something she did on a WP, she said ‘(fellow male exp associate) told me it was ok’ and I let her know (cont)
