Did anyone only start using their middle initial when they became an attorney? I have no idea where I got the notion but I felt like it was too formal at all my jobs before I went to law school but totally appropriate once I was licensed. Is this a custom?
Does anyone have any creative ideas on what my company can do for May Mental Health month?
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?
Currently, I am recruiting or trying to recruit without LinkedIn Recruiter. Management is having a hard time seeing the ROI from LinkedIn Recruiter because they have never used it. Most of my experience in recruiting has been using LinkedIn Recruiter as my go to source. Is there anything I can do to convince them otherwise? Or are there any other resources that can help me fill all of my open positions? We use JazzHR for our ATS and free job boards through JazzHR.
1) Billable ID attorneys, HOW do you consistently bill 8-10 hours a day. Idk how to bill besides that you need to do it immediately. And 2, how long did it take for you to get comfortable billing.

When a partner sends back your doc with tracked changes, should I do anything more than accept changes and proofread again? Seems like I am constantly just volleying minor changes back to them.

Resume question. Do you include contract work on your resume or not if you have substantial reputable firm experience since (e.g. 5-6 years with the same firm)? Is having it in there better than the gap (~7 month gap) after law school? Just for full details, I was set to work at a small practice (~2 senior attorneys) and they rescinded due to losing a major client while I was studying for the bar in mid July) Thanks in advance for any advice!
Question for those who practice securities law, specifically ‘33 and ‘34 Act: is the weekend and night work often and terrible? Of course it happens from time to time and maybe firm/partner dependent but trying to gauge how bad it can be.
What are some best practices for handling an employee with dare I say, too much initiative? They tend to steamroll others and processes because they are so fast at their job and rather than taking a breather when done, start digging around for new projects outside of their scope. We value them but want to ensure others are given opportunity to thrive too.
I spend ten hours at the firm, work through lunch, and yet only bill 6 hours even though I’m working nonstop. What am I doing wrong? I’m a new associate and would legitimately appreciate some advice.

Met with a CCO for a role on a notoriously “challenging” account. Thirty minute Zoom, nothing in-depth. A few days later the recruiter emails like “Great news. We’ve talked to many people but they’d like to make an offer to you!” I’m thinking to myself, it was a 30 minute call, I’ve never met my direct manager, potential partner(s), etc...So these guys are just desperate to fill this role, right?

I have a (2-week old) new boss (CPO) who wants to break up my reports and responsibilities into different functions that report up to her. I accepted this role back in April because of the growth opp, but now I feel like the role and responsibilities she is suggesting are significantly reduced from the offer I accepted back in April (bait and switch).
