How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.

My team has made tremendous efforts during the pandemic to ensure the safety of all facilities and people in our region as we resume in-office activity. Predicated on confidentiality, my colleague went to HR with negative feedback re a specific leader’s flexibility with the *mandatory* PPE protocol. The HR Manager went directly to the leader and gave the feedback along w my colleagues name. Since that day she’s been heavily “taxed.” HR has a responsibility to protect anonymity. How to handle?

I don’t understand why partners and clients get so angry and pissy if you ask them a question (and I’m not talking like lots of piecemeal questions). I know you’re busy and you’re paying me to solve your problems but I also need information from you to do my job...

Our M has suddenly started assigning us firm initiative work, like creating account newsletters for the internal team. (Think about a long email with tips about WFH, exercise, hobbies, and other nonsense). We've tried to politely tell him we have project work to address and that the new monthly newsletter is frankly not a priority and that it's impeding billable work. He has screwed team members over during reviews for but listening to everything he says. I'm really not sure what to do. Advice?

Literally saw a job posting that was just posted 5 HOURS AGO, some no name startup with only 51-200 employees, 289 APPLICANTS?!? This is like the 10th posting I’ve seen like this the past 2 days where there are more applicants than employees within hours of posting. Like wtf....how am I supposed to compete on any of these apps (and don’t say referral because I don’t know someone at every company and honestly all my referral applications haven’t worked). Great motivation on a Monday 😭
