*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

A former colleague gave me a strong reco on LinkedIn. She said I was “the nicest person to work for.” Crazy, but I wonder if that is a detriment to landing a creative leadership role?
I just left the ad world and living a more peaceful life. With that said I’m bored. Any agency gossip? Who’s sleeping with whom? What client did you lose? Etc.
Started out hating Zoom depos. Kind of like them now. In hour two of a co-defendant’s examination, which is entirely irrelevant to my client, and I’ve clipped my nails, stretched fully, planned a hike for the weekend, ordered my home goods off Amazon, and it’s all billable time because I’m stuck on this thing.

An interviewing company hasn’t offered me the job yet but is asking me for my visa documents so their counsel can take a look. I assume they want to see how much time is left before extending offer.

How would you answer the ‘tell me about a time you had a challenge with a colleague / had different ideas of a project but had to compromise / interpersonal challenge w/ a colleague’ question? I haven’t faced this situation in my short 2 year career 😅
I constantly see caution from those practicing advising newbies to cut and run/quit this profession. Do you feel you were ill prepared for what being a lawyer actually entails or is it more burnout? What led you to law and what has pushed you to advise those considering law or about to start practicing to consider alternatives?

Question: what are the chances to get re-hired after a year if you leave your job for 1 year to move to a different country to take care of your spouse who is having mental health problems?

And I’m not fluent in the local language.
My wife makes 112k and I make 70k in NYC. She plans to go to law school in 18 months. She is very smart and so I believe she will get a scholarship. But assuming worst case scenario, we will take on debt to pay tuition (180k). My question is should we still fund our Roth 401k this year as we have in the past or stop funding it to save for Law school to decrease student loans? I believe post law school she will make 200k (big law) and I should be at around 100k.
