On top of everything, I am constantly annoyed by the partners taking the credits from my work. No recognition or whatsoever. In turn, the firm tells us to develop business on our own. When we bring in business, the partners snap the credits as quickly as they can. Funny.
Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
Love my practice are in every way but really lacking motivation right now. That is all.

Anyone ever made the move from a smaller market with great work-life balance to a bigger market with poor work life balance in order to do more sophisticated work/more money? Currently only required to bill 1800, but I’m so sick of these lower middle market deals with sketchy clients and solo-practitioner opposing counsel.
Any other big law associates ever just think "Once I have $1.5 million I'm moving to an island and never thinking about work again" Mid level and just getting to the stage in my career where I hate this.

Hi everyone, Looking for a M&A HR checklist that includes due diligence through integration. I have one but would like to see what else is out there and compare. Happy to share my email directly.
Any tips on how best to draft an email asking for work from a partner who I haven’t worked with and who doesn’t know me? I’d like to get on their matters and want to craft an email that would actually get them to respond and be interested in giving me the work (as opposed to just acknowledging my interest and forgetting about it the next day).

Bain: can someone please tell me what the “hiring exercise” entails as part of the interview process?
I feel like 1/4 of my job is chasing seniors/partners to respond to my emails. They tell me to have drafts ready by A to prepare to send to the client by B. I’ll check in occasionally after sending drafts to them in time for A but by day D I’m still chasing with radio silence. Any advice? I don’t want the client to think I’m ignoring them when I’m the one being ignored!

Anyone get J&J? After a year apart my older sisters are finally coming to see me!! It was a last minute thing (they’re stopping in to see me then take me to my parents for Father’s Day). I didn’t get vaccinated yet because I was going through the process of freezing my eggs. How are the side effects? I’m 25 for reference. I want to get the vax in one shot but don’t want to be sick for my sister visit! I also had covid previously (like in the beginning). Not sure if that’s important or not.
How much of a pay bump, in dollars not percentages, would you want to go from working remote (even after covid) to working in an office 5 days a week? (Yes I can work 100% remote in US and can also work remote globally, but need manager approval)
