Stupid question guys.. what does it mean to have market caps north of $100million? Is it saying anything above 100m?
I know I don’t want to practice law full time for the rest of life. While there is some prestige, I honestly think we work way too hard for how much we’re paid. Any advice from seniors in this profession on how to diversify to make $? I’m single, no school debt, paying rent for apartment and car bill. No other obligations.
How long is the typical equity partnership track? I used to think it was 8 years, but now it seems longer. Secondly, is it realistic to expect partnership if you’re willing to put in the work/years?
Midlevel Corp NYC big law. Received a mixed bag review during mid-year review. Even positive and negative. My reviews over the years have had peaks and valleys. Worried about consistency. Should I dip or at least start talking to recruiters? Didn’t get an action plan or anything but it was a “developmental message.” Besides obviously internalizing and correcting to get better- thoughts on whether I should start looking?

Have you left law and come back to it? Why did you come back and how hard was it to come back after a hiatus in another profession (e.g. consulting, real estate, other)?

How often are you lied to by opposing counsel? It just happened to me, and it’s probably only the 5th or so time (that I know of) in my 20+ year legal career as a transactional lawyer that I’ve been lied to.
I work in an open space layout. Other clerks talk all day and I cannot concentrate. I’ve asked them to stop and they refuse. How do I escalate this without starting a war ?
Everyone will be quarantined soon for a long time. Just make sure you have enough water and supplies. If you have another state or country, you can still get into and would prefer to be for the next
My firm recently advised that all its US offices won’t be going into office until at least September (with flexibility for certain office use authorizations on a case by case basis). Any updates from you all?
Controversial Opinion of the Week: Big Law isn’t that bad. Sure, there are times it means late nights. But it’s stimulating and you are paid a lot of money to do a job that isn’t rocket science. 🤷🏻♂️
When is a good time to join a nonprofit board? Don't want to lose touch with my ideals but also don't want to stretch myself too thin too early
Anyone here do securities litigation, plaintiffs or defense? I have an interest in the practice area and want to learn more about it. Thanks!
Returning to school soon. Created loan spreadsheets. It has officially hit me how broke and indebted I will be lol. For those who took out MBA loans, looking back, was it worth it? Any regrets?
Thoughts on North Highland? Looks like they have a local model. Are they primarily program management / IT? Do they have decent supply chain service offerings?
For those of us not in NYC (esp folks in Florida, Arizona, and Texas), are your clients or employer doing anything regarding the rapid rise of Covid cases?

Not following NJ State’s quarantine note— do we have to quarantine if coming from a state with high coronavirus incidence or no? The compliance is expected bit feels like a contradiction...
Recently bought tickets to Hawaii on points. What's the best way to get business class? Pay to upgrade early or wait till a week out of day off? My flight is 8 hrs long. United flight

I have 2 masters (mba, ms) from top schools, been in consulting for over 10 years, I am confident that I know my stuff well..but still I keep getting rejected. Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!

Any advice for senior experience hire from one big 4 to another? Any challenges? How was the learning curve? How to set a tone with this fresh new start?
Any suggestions on what to do differently considering the current economic climate? I’m at a Big 4 firm (not Deloitte) and concerned about layoffs. I haven’t taken any vacation this year and don’t want to take the voluntary hour reduction either. I plan to just keep my head down and deliver/sell as best I can. Should I be more proactive? Get involved with a specific big account I’ve been avoiding for a while now?
