GTB is losing/laying off employees left and right. Rumor is that Ford is unhappy. But I love my department. Do I jump a sinking ship before threat of another layoff.... or do I ride it out and pray?

I can’t help but feel that the partners in my practice have already decided who they’re investing in to help develop and promote—and it doesn’t include me. I’m a high performer and well-liked, but I see other people at my level and above still get preferential treatment and I think this is hindering promotion. My only solution is to find an exit to another firm. Has anyone else been in this situation and also found their only way to solve this was to leave?

When I first started dating my boyfriend about 11 months ago, I told him I didn’t want kids. He said he didn’t really want them either so I thought I’d lucked out and found another person who wanted to remain child free!

I think I need to force the conversation. What’s the best way to go about doing that?

Anyone aware of any nice one bedroom deal in Manhattan (flexible other than downtown or upper manhattan) in a doorman elevator building? I moved to BK during peak COVID but realize the city is picking back up so wanting to move back. Checked StreetEasy but nothing crazy popping up.
