Are you folks happy with your decision to make a career in sales? I’m young working in tech sales, but also have my bachelors in psychology, and could see my self happily going for my masters maybe even PHD and being a counselor.
This might be a dumb question so pls excuse my ignorance but do non-equity partners get bonuses? Is that a thing?
Pfizer is 80% effective after the first dose and 90% effective after the second dose, according to a new real world study. Most ill effects are from the second shot. So I’d prefer not to take the second shot. Am I wrong?
How much heads up to you give a firm for a semi emgrecy medical procedure? I had a gallbladder attack and my doctor wants to remove it. It's not quite emgrecy surgery but not something they want to wait too long. My firm knows I was sick a day this week. How much heads up should I give them that I will be having surgery and might be out for a few days?
Monday morning and the only thing that goes through my mind is wow I hate my job. Between the strict requirement of releasing billing time daily, high billable goal and I guess a heavy workload (and everything that comes with living through a pandemic) it’s hard to start my day excited for work. And I hate it. Makes me question why I’m doing this for a living.
For those of you in house, do you actually read the articles written up by law firms? I’m constantly being asked to do this non billable work and I’m not in a place to reject and want to know the actual value of this exercise.
Would you let the head of your practice group know if you originated business for another group?
Question: I have a lawsuit against a center that filed for BK. I believe there is insurance from the time in question. However, I know BK stays the litigation and then disposes claims. Do I have any recourse? Can I still reach the insurance? Thanks you.

Thoughts on Winston & Strawn (Chicago) vs Katten (Chicago) for lateral move as a mid level in m&a/cap markets? Culture? Quality of work? Watch outs?Winston & Strawn KattenMuchinRosenman LLP
About to turn down a job offer that would nearly double my salary after speaking to several former associates of the firm and hearing some not so great things. The word “sweatshop” was used multiple times yet I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. This is truly “you can’t pay me enough to be part of that” in action. I am betting that I can get the same money at a place with a better culture - hopefully I am right!
Does anyone have recommendations for good legal recruiters in LA/Southern CA? Currently in-house, looking for other in-house roles. Thanks in advance!
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
Insurance coverage associates: how long does it take you to write a 10 page memo about policy law?
I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.
I’m a little over 8 weeks pregnant and I am going to tell my coach and dept head in about 4-5 weeks that I’m due in late January. I’m so beyond nervous for this as I will miss my entire client base’s yearend work. I feel guilty but don’t and I would love to have my clients back when I return from leave, but I’m not sure if that will happen either. Any advice?

P-dubs, based way to give notice? Is my $3.5K bonus worth staying until 10/15 if I can't get new co. to cover it? Was thinking: email to RP and HR w/2 weeks notice on 10/1, they'll then schedule call?
Regrets post: what stock did you sell in the beginning of COVID and regret it now?

If the system benefits you, then what is the incentive to change the system (privilege, wealth, etc)? Why not keep things the way they are?
Favouritism? I got screwed over, paired with another art director. Same job title, salary, started at the same time. After doing good work together, I won awards individually, turned down a job offer to stay in this company...was let go and it turned out my cd who dealt with my pay etc and decided where briefs went had never raised the job I turned down with management, I was earning less and he had been giving the good opportunities to the other junior ad. Ended in me getting a pay off...

Just got finished with two huge projects I had to turnover in a very tight timeframe. One of them barely had any revisions and the other got clobbered with redlines. Clearly the latter was the one I was working on at 2am. This is my very first assignment as a first year at big law and I wanted to make a good first impression. I feel like I squandered that opportunity.😣
