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?
Does anyone know if you have to file 90 day notice of claim if u are suing a non profit or not for profit in New York State ?
Advice needed. We have a paralegal who thinks she’s a lawyer. I mean she’s really delusional but she gets most of the work we don’t want to do done so I try not to burst her bubble. (cont.)
Not my firm, but I hear Cadwalader just reduced associate pay by 25% and stopped partner distributions.
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)?
Is there any way to get access to the finance bowl? Given how often corporate lawyers interact with finance professionals, it would be helpful to have a way to directly interact with them.
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. 🤷🏻♂️
Anyone feel guilty living far away from their family? I’m 27 and been on the west coast for 3 years, but all my family lives on the east coast. This a normal feeling?
I’m gonna be honest. What happened in Las Vegas has gotten to me, far more than other incidents like this (except for Sandy Hook). I haven’t been able to sleep, I’m more paranoid than usual. It’s logical to know where exits are around you, and now I have to look at where I can hide if there’s an active shooter situation? I won’t stop living my life and doing things I enjoy, but it’s so unfair and so devastating that this keeps happening and nothing changes 😞
Tired of the whining abt cell reimbursement. When was the last time work was the legit majority of your phone bill? Change your plan, get on wifi, stop expecting work to pay for Fishbowl and Tinder.

Currently interviewing at JPMorgan in their CIB division for a associate operations role. Have met with 5 people for two different teams and another person for another team, all of which I believe are 3 total open positions for 3 different teams.

Checked my online application again recently and still says “In Consideration”
Divorced Girlfriends, how bad was it before you actually made the decision? I am considering leaving my husband but I want to be 100% sure that I’m doing the right thing. What were your reasons?
For this who have taken a medical LOA due to mental health issues, how long did you take off? I’m going to submit my request but I don’t know what’s “reasonable”. If I try 120 days will they deny it?
Forgot my watch for my out of town client this week. I'm never without a watch... what are some things you forgot to pack while traveling?
Any recommendations for movers in dc? And if you could provide how much they average (or how much you spent)? I tried perusing yelp but they all have hit or miss reviews...
How do you handle travel and the mom guilt that comes with it? My child is 3 and I couldn't make any more excuses. I had to travel for an engagement and I have cried every evening during our skype/facetime calls. Please tell me I am not alone.
Have any other 🐠 missed or almost missed a flight due to habit? For months I took the same flight at the same time at the same gate. Then one week they decided to change all that.
Ghosted by recruiters/HR during/after the interview process. How often is appropriate to follow up, and when should you stop? Feeling a bit dejected with the lack of communication.
On a client proj since 2 years and playing a key role. What would Accenture offer if raise an exit request now? I have an offer in hand from another firm. Thoughts?
