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)
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.

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?

How do you guys deal with frequent brain fog? Ive always had it a bit on and off but lately I've felt almost lost in some work meetings because I can't retain anything. I don't smoke weed, I rarely take low dose of anxiety medicine, drink socially and I'm pretty healthy on most fronts but I did have COVID almost a year ago. What else could cause this?
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
Working in Tokyo and the only American/consultant. Unlimited expense account. Consulting lottery?
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Buddy of mine wants to get into federal consulting. He’s got an MA and some work experience. Just got a garbage offer at a small firm- $49k. Anyone willing to help him with a referral? I’ve got him in the GH system. I’d you’d be willing to PM your email I’ll send it to him. Thanks!!

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
For those in TAS/FDD, is anyone being pulled into other work (like audit or even PPP)? Or is it more common to be unassigned/have low utilization when things are slow?

Moved client side after years at agencies and damn it’s as good as you hear it is (so far). So. Many. More. Women.
On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊
