Jones Day attorneys—how are you feeling? A related post became overhelmed with soap boxing and attorneys from other law firms foaming at the mouth. Try and resist if you feel similarly inclined.
Would you rather...be a non-equity partner making 650k (3M+ PPP firm) or an equity partner making 400k (<1M PPP firm)? (Bonus Q: or that one Jones Day associate who was sketchily making 800k)

Ho do US big law lawyers view firms as Jones Day, DLA Piper, Dentons etc. (e.g. quality and prestige) ? Very large (and succeful) globally but rather the underdogs in the US/NYC market?
Anyone from Jones Day got inside deets on compensation? Does the no bonus, higher base comp equal market in the end?
#metoo finally hits biglaw. Looks like a mess at DLA Piper, and Jones Day for that matter...
Was just hired by one of the Big4 and am currently going through a background check. I sell clothes online as a hobby (4 hours a week outside of working hours), but it is filed under a LLC in my name. Do I need to disclose this to the firm? I don’t want them to worry about it. Also I have never worked during business hours. In my opinion, selling clothes is not a form of outside employment… it is a hobby. Do I still need to disclose this?

I'll email someone after watching their presentation at a conference.I want to learn about the skills required in his team as I'm planning to apply for a job in his product line. The job I'm planning to apply is in another country but I know that they work internationaly. My question is should I mention my job interest in my first message, or just mention that I'm interested in learning about his skills and experience? If I don't mention the job, I'm afraid that I might sound like I'm there to recruit him.

I burned out It took Covid for me to realize just how stressed I was on a day to day basis. Thankfully, moved into industry and got help from doctor and therapy and am beginning to recover. I hope you all take care of yourselves and don't have to go through what I did. We are all type A personalities, however and I feel that because we are, our instinct is to push through the pain. Just writing this to hopefully get you all to check in on yourselves.
Do you judge founders/execs if they are not physically in shape? I heard one unicorn CEO saying that it's a sign that they aren't productive/aren't managing things properly in their business or philosophy. But I feel like hard work is just sometimes a trade off for fitness, and that seems a bit of a singular perspective.

Thanks.

My I-485 was filed in December 2019. I just got an RFE saying that I need to submit an updated form I-485 because the one submitted has expired. Has anyone received this request before? I also got laid off from Deloitte so I don’t have any attorney to help me on this. Should I wait until I get a new job so they can help me file the I-485 and supplement J (for portability) together? TIA!

So I just got back from the consulate and my visa was approved. My NIE eligibility, on the other hand, got severely scrutinized but in the end I received a small paper (just a few lines on a blank piece of paper) saying my NIE is approved. The consular officer did however say that it is subject to further investigation and may ultimately be denied. This got me quite confused. Anyone else that has had the same? Can I still be denied at the border?
