Any tips for career progression for a tech recruiter? I have 2 years of experience working for a recruitment agency for capital markets + some account management. Thinking of internal recruiter roles at startups or customer success management. Live in NYC but really want to relocate to a smaller city. Any tips from recruiters or CSMs?
Ropes & Gray, non-litigation: Consistently grueling hours? (Week after week, month after month?)
Does your company offer an insurance payout to employees who opt out of your insurance plan and if so how much? We do, however we think it’s too low of an offering and would like to increase it. We want it to be logical from a financial standpoint.
As a junior lawyer, what’s a good way to ask seniors that review your work for more feedback on a particular piece of work? Sometimes I feel like they review writing and provide little to no comments because it’s not substantively wrong but, based on feedback I get from others, I know there’s areas for improvement (and people always have personal preferences, which are helpful to know, too). I know it takes someone much longer to give this feedback so any thoughts/suggestions welcomed!
Anyone here from Epstein Becker & Green able to provide some insight into the firm’s healthcare transactional group? Feel free to PM.
How should I evaluate my salary? I’m a 1st year associate at a mid-sized firm (50 attorneys) with a monthly billable hours target of 170. It’s interesting to me that my billable amount in 3 months is equal to my salary, and I’m wondering at what point that should change. I understand there is overhead that I have to consider when analyzing this, but I feel sure there is a typical ratio of billing amount to salary and I’m just wondering what that looks like. Any thoughts here?
Is anyone familiar with the WARN act? Wondering if you’ve recently been laid off or in the past- is this something that is practiced during mass layoffs?
Any advice on breaking into cybersecurity sales? I currently sell to cisos (as well as CTOs, CIOs, etc) at small enterprise accounts but it’s from the angle of training.
In comms structure, what do you think of this?
Brand new client - 25% of new-client fees for 6 months. Plus a 3% trail commission after the client has been with us for 12 months
Referred client - (where you have helped in the process) - 10% of new client fees for 6 months
Upsold client - (where you have helped in the upselling) - 25% of upsold fees for 6 months
Never had a trail comms structure before…
I have been requested to specifically develop of satisfaction survey directly related to management/supervisors and how they are perceived by the company. This would not only be new, but completely outside of the timeline we typically use for our surveys. Although I am excited to build it, it also feels odd that I am creating a survey targeted towards finding weaknesses of leadership. Am I thinking too much into it? What are your thoughts?
Thoughts on PHR/SPHR/SHRM-CP certs? I have approximately 9 years of HR exp and my bachelors and MBA. Been debating on whether or not I need to fulfill my urge to get a certification. Wanted to get some thoughts around whether you have a similar background and opted to or opted to not get their certification? Thanks!
Would you be happy with your job if you did less of it? (Aka reduced work schedule, no billable hours etc) Or is it the work itself thats at issue?
4th year here trying to pivot out of ID into an in-house or corporate/transactional role. Any tips, leads, suggestions are appreciated!
Any financial institutions/banking/cap markets lawyers have opinions on what’s going on with Robinhood blocking the purchase of certain stocks?
I just received my merit review which I excelled at and they gave me a 7% increase instead of 3 to bump me up to “market rate”, since I’m in tech in nyc. But even at 7% I’m still underpaid and I know because I’ve interviewed with other companies in nyc for my role and they’re offering 75-80k while I’m now getting 64. Also read comments on here. I want to speak with my manager about bumping me up more at least to 70, but Idk if that’s a good idea and not sure how to have that convo. Any advice?
We are thinking of implementing a policy on flexible bank holidays but not sure if we have all bases covered. Any advice?
I joined fishbowl a month ago and while I’ve seen a couple contentious debates but I must say I’m pleasantly surprised at how respectfully ppl comment on this app even when disagreeing. Usually anonymity on the internet brings out the absolute worst in ppl; they type things anonymously that they would NEVER say in person smh. But I really haven’t seen horrible comments here. I wonder what makes this app diff frm others?
I have around 6 years of experience and my primary skill is McAfee ePO administration and I want to explore more technical roles in Cyber Security. Can someone suggest me from where should I start? Can I get a good hike after completing some cyber security course?
Has anyone made the transition from being an account executive (hunter) to softer roles like account management or customer success and can share experience/any advice for us AEs aspiring to get there?
I do enjoy the aspect of sales, but I prefer the “soft-sales” type of a process where I can build relationships over time and farm opportunities, especially since I’m also at the stage in life where I’m getting ready to start a family.
I am a US citizen but parents are on visitor visa and currently in the US. Parents are Indian citizens. Any one here had experience taking their parents or family members on visitor visas on a cruise to Mexico. What paper works is required? Do they get another visa stamp when they re-enter US? Does Mexico require visa for entry at the Mexican ports. Cruise starts from LA.
Thanks for your response in advance.
Ugh I have to have a conversation with our au pair about her relationship with our son. She obviously doesn’t know how to handle toddlers & what she is doing doesn’t work. Worried she is going to take offense when we basically tell her she is the issue. Yes, he is difficult & treating you poorly but that’s because he is a toddler and as the adult we have to be the ones to guide them & keep the positive vibe and energy in the household. Where she ignores him/ doesn’t change her attitude, etc UGH
Has Wunderman Thompson changed with Taras joining as CCO? I hear he's a great creative leader.

Are you "that" teacher? 😂
Got $50k saved up aside from my other funds (emergency, vacation, etc). Good time to dump it into Tech rn? Specifically Google, Msft, and Apple
PEOPLE DO MAKE MISTAKES!! but My manager reacts very rudely everytime with me, And all seniors who are with him around 10+ years will assign tickets to me and they monitor me continuously.
I never had any conflicts with anyone, but i felt that they all connered me. I had a call with my director and senior director and explained about this on my last day
i never met my teammates in office since i joined and resigned in covid.
Did this happen coz i dint have much rappo with them?
Got stood up. Anticipated this date all week and did some prep today. But I got no texts and no replies to my calls. We've been dating 4 months and he's done this twice before, both times because he fell asleep (I'm sure he was asleep). Wondering if he was sleeping, except he hasn't gotten back to me 7 hours later. Quite sad. Haven't dated much because I'm quite awkward and really introverted, but now that I'm putting myself out there, it feels very vulnerable. :'( I want my mommy! I give up.
Are you happy with your engineering field? Is there something you wish you knew that would have made you choose a different path?
Second chairing a trial for the first time in just over a week. I don’t have any trial experience at all. If you were first chairing, what would you want your second chair to know and do?

Seven hours of zoom conferences is mentally draining. They’re great and all, but I think we need to chill out a little bit.
Hey strategists, what’s something you would love an intern to provide you with or something they have done that made your life a little easier? (Cont.)
