What is it like to work in healthcare fraud litigation/government investigations? Type of assignments on investigation side? Hours? I’ve always been set on practicing business or real estate litigation and not sure making a switch to that practice area would be right for me.
After your DEI training what are the other things have you done to fill in the gaps? More training ? A speaker?
Is it normal/fine to confirm with a partner the language in a paragraph in a document prior to sending out to a client if you are not 100% sure it is correct? I’m in capital markets and securities and often times am unsure of what to include/how to word, particularly for private offerings. The answer seems to be obvious (yes) but I am a year and a half into traditional practice with prior adjacent experience and don’t want to be seen as not confident or that I am not progressing.
How long do you typically allow for self assessments and manager assessments for year-end? This year we gave employees a week and managers 3 weeks (holidays not included), but they still said it wasn’t long enough even though most waited until the very last day to complete them.
To hr professionals in finance..I’m considering getting an online certificate through Cornell in data/analytics. Worth it or do employers think it’s equivalent to Coursera?
Pfizer is 80% effective after the first dose and 90% effective after the second dose, according to a new real world study. Most ill effects are from the second shot. So I’d prefer not to take the second shot. Am I wrong?
How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
Does having parents/family members who are attorneys give someone a leg up either in law school or in the first year of practice?
Does anyone have a dashboard or excel template for turnover/attrition where data can be easily “dumped” in for a beautiful display? TIA!

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
How much nonbillable time is too much? I’m a second associate at a midsized firm and I have 30-50 non billable hours each month. An associate at another firm told me this was really high. Thoughts?
I need help getting in the right frame of mind for my evaluation. I'll have my first annual review tomorrow and I'm anxious about what to expect even though all signs point to positive feedback. Starting a new job during the pandemic, it's been hard to read people I work with remotely and only just started seeing in person. I've forgotten how to strike a confident but deferential tone in a meeting, especially one where I'm being scrutinized. What if I seem nervous & they think I'm not confident?
Any thoughts on family law as a practice area? Got offered 110k plus bonuses with low billable hours requirement. I'm in Los Angeles. Not sure if I should get into it as a practice area though as I hear conflicting things. Any thoughts would help. Thanks
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
So other than money (which is obviously very important) what’s the incentive to make partner? Is it crazy that I just want to do my work and go home to my amazing family without the added pressure of running a business and managing others? I’m only a third year (in a new practice area) so maybe the thought of being competent enough to ever be a partner just seems unrealistic. 🤷🏼♀️
Operating partner at Bain Capital / Apollo / TPG / KKR / Silver Lake / etc. What does this job entail and what is the scope of responsibility / org? Had a couple of colleagues on the ops side exit into these roles.
Question about prenatal care and insurance coverage. I have Aetna Innovation Health which covers prenatal care but have received a few bills from my obgyn—seems like costs were partially covered by insurance but I thought all of normal prenatal care was covered. I’m wondering if it’s because of ultrasounds or specific blood tests I took. Is this normal?

What does everyone do when they max out their 401k AND IRA? Taxable investment account? Something else?
I’m struggling at work with illness. The issue is I don’t want to get fired, and I know FMLA only applies to people who’ve been at their firm at least a year. Is there anything those of us who have under a year can do to take a leave without potentially being fired over it?
What can I do to support others in a time like this? There’s a curfew in my city and I don’t want to join protests for health and safety reasons. I’ve donated to a few orgs and try to stay on top of the news, check in on my POC friends, etc. But a lot of the stuff on social media feels like an echo chamber or virtue signaling to me. What else can I do to get involved and affect change?
Do you use ours against your assets in your long term portfolio? I have heard so many say both ways. Yes the cost is great due to the negative correlation and offsetting the losses in a big drawback others say if you are DCA why bother you buy low and why not self insure
Just had the most cringey phone interview 😞

For comparison, my base salary is 120k, bonus around 10%, 401k match at 6%, and ESPP for 10% of my salary at a 15% share price discount. What does the full package look like at PWC in addition to base salary?
Ex-Deloitters... why did you leave? I’m 6 months in & still happy. Managers don’t bug me past 5, seniors explain things to me, staffed on a cool project. Yet most leave after 2-3 years. Am I naive?
