I have an opportunity to relocate to a different office/city within my law firm. What should I be asking and considering?
Weil’s alternating WFH policy is BS given that NYC is shutting down. It’s basically a mandatory facetime policy for associates. Anyone else’s NYC office forcing people to show up this week?
Want to get the perspective of younger attorneys. We’re a 4-attorney firm (2 partners, one associate, one OC) looking to add a 5th attorney. I left a mid-sized litigation firm on the East Coast where I was a partner to open my own firm. Decision was driven by quality of life. We are a civil lit firm. We don’t have billing requirements per se. We have expectations, but we’re reasonable - big on flexibility & quality of life. What are young associates looking for when evaluating job opportunities?
Small/medium law firm transactional folks - what’s it like on that side in terms of billables, work life balance, etc.? I’m in biglaw currently and thinking about getting out if the grass really might be greener...

Light-hearted question: Do you have a work crush? Can be anywhere from innocuous platonic to serious to inappropriate.
Recommendations for nursing dresses/tops that don’t scream nursing? I don’t like the v-neck ones or the ones with a panel “across”. Double layer/lift up ones are ok but where to get cute ones?
Wouldn't it just be craaazy if someone took a "sick day" tomorrow to stay home and binge House Of Cards Season 5? Just horrible!

For folks serving GPS (gov) clients, do you see an increase in telework options open for the future in the wake of COVID? I think it’s clearly going to be increased for commercial clients, but GPS is a little fuzzier given clearances/contractual obligations.
I noticed many posts here in the past few hours regarding depression or anxiety related to work or otherwise. As someone having JUST gone through this and still going through it (I also just got a therapist), please reach out if you have any questions about therapy/how you’re feeling/what to do/anything else. This bowl has been so helpful so I’m here to give back if needed.
