Anyone know anything about Kutak Rock? I had never heard of them, but they’re in the AM200. Considering a lateral position.
So, my boss just told me that all lives matter. Let me know if you hear about any executive HR openings, I have 16 years of global HR experience.
If you're interviewing at a firm that markets itself to laterals as a biglaw refuge with low billable requirements and quality of life is it okay to say in an interview that those are one of the reasons you're considering the firm?
Solo who started pre-pandemic and as a result never transitioned into a traditional office setting. I enjoy work from home and it keeps overhead obviously low. I can afford to move into an office now (and planned to do so last spring before the shutdown). I find myself hesitating to make the leap. I’ve found most clients prefer zoom consultations or house calls. I practice in PI and cannabis. Curious to hear others’ thoughts on the necessity of a brick and mortar post pandemic. Thanks.
As a company we are looking at going digital with our employee personnel and medical files etc. What are some of the ways you have done that? Any advice/recommended process?
I graduated with my bachelor's in HRM and I'm wondering if there are any certifications or trainings I could do before I lock down on the SHRM-CP. I recently became HIPAA certified for my company and that got me thinking about what else I could do to add to my resume. Looking for good stepping stone certificates.
Good morning, I work for Solugenix placing top notch candidates at companies throughout the US. I just started at Solugenix so anyone who needs any assistance either finding a job or looking for candidates please let me know. Thanks and have a great day.
Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!
I’m a 2016 grad making $120k in a small to mid-size regional firm. I’m based in Nashville. My firm’s management is trying to survey other small to mid-size regional firms to get a feel for where the comp is now, especially in light of the big law increases that are making headlines, and to see just how far below market we may have fallen. Any additional data points from smaller regional firms (especially if you have a presence in Nashville or across the SE) would be appreciated! TIA
Does this get better or do we just hate our lives (and not have lives) until we leave the legal field altogether? Wondering if academia is better…
I’m the only associate in my dept (niche transactional practice group, 4th yr). It’s so hard for me to gauge my progress when my only points of comparison are equity partners. I’ve been feeling like such a failure recently. I feel like I should be getting fewer comments on the documents I draft. I feel like I should have fewer questions. I feel like I’m always making mistakes...but I have no way to tell if I’m behind or not. Any recommendations (other than asking my partners, obviously)?
What’s the most petty thing you’ve seen a firm do to an attorney who is lateraling out? Mine just revoked my renewal paperwork and payment for 2021-22 bar dues, even though they’ve already submitted it I’ll still be an employee when they’re due (7/1). Money’s not the issue. They can dock the $400 from my final check for all I care. The administrative hassle is the petty part, and it’s so inconsequential that it genuinely made me chuckle. I don’t even blame them. Kinda respect the hustle tbh.
How do you continue with work as usual when it seems like the rest of your life is falling apart? I feel like I’m spiraling and just want to quit everything and drive somewhere far away to start over. I have a call with a partner soon and not sure if my usually good at faking enthusiasm self will be able to pull through on this one.
Happy (zoom) Passover for everyone celebrating!
When a law firm is looking for a 33/34 act attorney does it need an one working primarily with public companies? Or private companies as well? I’m a corporate and securities attorney, all my clients are private EGC and PE/ VC/ hedge funds, I usually ensure that they are exempted from 33/34 acts

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?
Does anybody have experience applying for their EB2 GC and National Interest Waiver? Do you have any attorney recommendations? Anything I should know (words of wisdom) before going down this road?
Why is it so hard to care about this job? Maybe it's time to switch firms or go to MBA....
Would you change your job for a 25% hike in pay when you are satisfied with your current day to day life. The new job gets you money, promotion and will have challenges to prove your abilities again.
What would you do in this scenario? Been working with a recruiter for a lateral to a big law firm. Went through three rounds of interviews, lateral questionnaire and conflict check. Then, recruiter indicates good news (offer) is coming by email soon. She also indicated they are calling references. She gets good feedback and then, indicated they want a partner rec. Sadly, most of the firms I left were pissed when I quit because they took it personally. Not unusual since they were boutique firms..
This is a query regarding a course. I am currently enrolled in PGP Data Science and Business Analytics offered by Great Learning (Great Lakes Institute of Management) and University of Texas, Austin. It's completely online and 11 months. Is this course equivalent to a Masters/ MBA? Do recruiters consider this course as a valid one?
What's an average salary for a mid level in NYC?
With all you consultants on here brushing off the risk of coronavirus, I swear to God, if there is a US outbreak, it will almost certainly be caused/exacerbated by overconfident traveling consultants
Is it appropriate for junior consultants to connect on LinkedIn with senior clients from a project? I’m about to roll off my project and want to keep in touch with these clients given they work in my dream exit job. For context, the client is senior in title but relatively young (mid 30s) so not like retirement aged executive who may find my networking too forward. We had great interactions throughout but no explicit invite to connect on LinkedIn. TIA!
Don’t know if it is in all big4, but are there any internationals who feel stuck in the company due to visas or green card process and feel that even if they are top performers they are paid less than Americans? (Even less than the people below us in total compensation) - this happened to me last year (top performer - on the top right of scatterplot) my senior below me was paid more … and this year (average) I saw a senior below me with a total compensation higher than mine.
Not sure consulting is the best way to spend life in my early 20s but damn, gotta do justice to your future self right? Just feels like i’m spending the best and healthiest years of my life with a screen and 15 Slack pings every 10 minutes. Maybe it’ll get better when things open up.
2nd year female associate &I have a new baby. I’m scheduled to go out of town for busy season but my dad is sick and my parents keep my baby. Can I tell them I can’t travel? Or should I find a new job

What is the salary range for a Sr Consultant in Health Services at Deloitte (for someone with 3+ yrs of experience, no MBA)? Does Deloitte offer sign on bonuses for experienced hires?
I heard PwC increased their CPA bonus to $6k. How long do you think it will be until the rest of the big 4 increase theirs too?
Man I could not care less about work today. Worked my arse off for a 2 rating and a laughable bonus last year. Time to scour indeed.com
I’m looking for a screening tool that will assess a candidate’s proficiency with MS-Teams. Would anyone know if there is such a thing that exists?
