You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.
Anyone here a member of Revenue Collective? Is it worth it? What kind of value have you gotten out of it if so? 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?
What’s the more persuasive federal authority? 1. District Court opinion in the same state but different district, or 2. Circuit Court opinion from a different circuit.
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. 🤷🏼♀️
What is it like to work as a real estate lawyer? I’ve done 4 years of plaintiffs personal injury, I’d like to try something new. Don’t want billable hours. Any thoughts? (Also other types of law suggestions are welcome)
Advice on taking and passing the SPHR exam?
If I give notice on a holiday week, would the 4 day work week count as a full week for the 2 weeks notice?
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
When drafting an MSJ is it better to address the ways that OC might overcome it; or is it better to just generally say why you’re entitled to MSJ and avoid tackling the finer issues that your MSJ presents?
Which books would you recommend to a product counel for tech startup about strategy, management, and leadership?
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.
Do you use a second monitor for your laptop? If so, which brand do you use? I have sidetrack and it’s a hit or miss when it will work.
How often do you respond to emails from law students who want to learn about your firm/practice area? I get like a dozen requests right around OCI every year. Frankly I’m tired of speaking to them and answering the same boring questions, especially if I know they have a low GPA and no chance of summering at my firm, but I do feel bad saying no/ignoring them
Happy (zoom) Passover for everyone celebrating!
Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.
Willing to give my year end bonus to whoever refers me to a job that I end up securing. Strategy or financial services, preferably, but obviously not terribly picky right now.
EY, what is the current maternity leave policy? Does the firm allow leave starting at 38 weeks? Is disability (6-8 weeks) separate from parental leave (16 weeks)? When is full eligibility - after 12 months of employment?
At what income level should I switch to pretax 401k vs post tax? Out of school I did post tax since I assume my tax rate will be higher when I retire, but it’s probably getting close at this point
Any IVF mamas(-to-be) not experience any morning sickness? I’m 8.5 weeks and I’ve had nothing; baby looked good as of last week’s ultra. Wondering if the HRT is messing with me, or if it’ll hit soon? I now have a ton of anxiety about whether things are going ‘ok’
Just had my first kid. How do you manage the consulting work expectations and being a parent?

Are ISPs going to raise home internet prices?
As adults we rarely had to think about vaccines pre-covid, other than the 10 year tetanus shot and optional flu shot. What booster shots have you got as an adult? Got a physical coming up and going to discuss with my doctor if I should be getting any.
Not currently in BigLaw but looking to lateral to a remote securities/cap markets position (live in a secondary market) from a boutique. Non-traditional older associate, billed 2000 hours last year and received a 2.5% raise and $1,000 bonus (other associates received $20k). Performance was not terrible, but less supervision so definitely made mistakes. Now finding out I am undervalued after getting interest from firms in the range of 50-60% more than my current salary. Anyone hiring?
Hi, Recently got an offer from LTI. Can someone tell me till when LTI has decided to do WFH? Is it till December or beyond that?
Hi everyone, Please help me out with this. I got an offer from Accenture for Senior Dev Analyst for my current techstack. However, I do not like the techstack I currently work on and want to move to Cloud. Can I switch ky technology stack after joining Accenture? I have been getting Cloud certifications as well but no project experience. So can I join Accenture with my current technology and then switch to Cloud? Or is this not possible at all or a very stringent process?
Monthly Income: do you guys use the take home (minus taxes, 401K, HSA) per pay period * 26 / 12 to determine monthly (non bonus) income for budgeting purposes? Or you just do pay periods and treat the ones with three separately?
Any MBBs pushing back postMBA start dates? Just wondering if this is limited to boutique and Big 4 as of now...
Interested in economic development in emerging economies. Any room for exclusively focusing on this type of work in PE? And if so, any way for a consultant of 5+ years (minimal deal experience) to have any shot at this type of work at all? No MBA (yet).
