Hi, everyone! I teach adults HSE & GED, I am trying to find new sources to use on DL. If someone has any sources that can be useful. I would appreciate it! Thank you!
Should I expect a promotion to essentially be in writing? This entire "promotion" seems to be theoretic over the last 6 months. I was about to quit yesterday and now the position I didn't think I was going to get is starting to come around;timing couldn't be crazier. Should I give them an ultimatum? I just received an insane offer but I want to stay.
Opportunity to pivot from Insurance Defense PI to Plaintiffs-side PI for almost 30k salary bump. If you generally like the people you currently work with would you do it? Obviously no billable hours doing Plaintiffs PI but I cant imagine their work day being any less stressful or the performance demand any less than on the defense side, especially if they are offering more money. Money is def a consideration for the move.

Can anyone recommend a certificate or course that is actually useful for developing professionals and/or reviewing performance? I don’t want/need something that is just a credential, I’m actually looking to get some formal grounding in these two topics so I can overhaul processes at my consulting firm. Thanks for your advice!!!
Need to define diverse talent metrics to create a scorecard. Challenge is that the available data is based on opting in/out of self identification, that data point can change dramatically YOY. Any recommendations on metrics and scorecard?
What are some best practices for handling an employee with dare I say, too much initiative? They tend to steamroll others and processes because they are so fast at their job and rather than taking a breather when done, start digging around for new projects outside of their scope. We value them but want to ensure others are given opportunity to thrive too.
I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.
I love my job as an Asst. State’s Attorney and thought the pandemic would be relaxing, but it’s only overwhelmed my mid-sized office. The micromanaging, juggling multiple dockets, etc. and resolutions of nearly no cases..making a move to big firm is looking more attractive. Is it just me?
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
Has anyone made the jump from insurance defense to working for the government (i.e. state attorney’s office)? It’s something I really want to do in the next couple years. Any tips/advice on the transition and taking a pay cut?
I’m not happy where I’m at, my abilities aren’t being maximized as I’m spread thin, and I know I’m being undervalued. Recently graduated and in property management w/ 3-4 years sales experience. Currently on the hunt for Sales/Account Management roles leaning more towards consumer goods, then tech. Any advice?
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.😣
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.
My firm offered to pay me 1/3 of my collected billables on a draw that is squared up at the end of year. For context, I’m a 5th year associate at a mid size firm in the NYC area. My collected billables last year were 457% of my compensation. Any thoughts or advice?
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?
We had a blizzard that shut the city down (close to 50 cm of snow) and I’ve been physically unable to leave my apartment, and I’m going stir crazy. I’m in Canada and covid cases have been low, so we’ve been back in the office a bit, but now they’re up and I’m worried about what the winter will bring. At least before I could sit outside or go for a walk, but not being able to leave is not going well - I worked from my bed today which I know is bad but couldn’t even get to my desk. Any advice?

Anyone else struggling to get traction in recruiting? I thought I had a strong resume. Mckinsey EM with distinctive performance and accelerated designation. TMT focus. Worked in finance for 5 years prior to M7 MBA. Engineering from top undergrad. I got rejected from FAANG without even getting a first recruiter call. And I had strong referrals at all of them. Pretty dejected :(
How long is Big 4 recruiting process?

I’m considering taking 6-12 months off after 2 years at deloitte post-undergrad. I’ve performed very well, but I am being ground to a nub. I haven’t taken a real break in a long time, I am incredibly stressed out, and I think I just need some time/space before making my next career move. A two-week PTO won’t cut it. Anyone who’s done the same have advice? How was your time away?
Can someone tell me how to calculate the net salary in NY? Where can I find the accurate taxes? After the taxes do I have to deduce anything more like 401(k) or health insurance?how much is that?
Out of curiosity how many women on here have left consulting to go to a tech role at FAANG? Did they approach you for it or vice versa?
So excited to be possibly take a position with so many inspiring women. Just not excited about the actual company. 🤷🏼♀️
