Would you ever let your firm/company know that you are looking to leave before you give your two weeks notice?
Here’s my conundrum, I have a great relationship with my boss, company, and upper management. I’m planning to switch jobs so I can relocate closer to family. I have some interviews coming up, and already have an offer in hand, so leaving is a foregone conclusion. My boss is going to be blindsided when I tell them I’m leaving - I can’t overstate how great our relationship is. Thoughts?
Junior attorney at a small firm. As someone interested in partnership, I want to know how much the partners are making. Reasonable? How do I figure that out?
Hey fellow attorneys! I am a second year attorney who has recently accepted a job within a firm that I am absolutely ecstatic about. However, my first year of practice was highly supervised and I was given no cases of my own (Always worked the cases with major supervision and micromanaging by partners in my previous firm). I am worried about being able to do solo cases individually and whether I know enough to be in charge of cases. Anyone else experienced this? Or have any advice? Thank you!
Currently, I manage one practice group in my office, but practice in several areas. I’m having a meeting Monday with firm leadership about transitioning to manage the entire office. It’s the firm’s only office in the state. I’ll have 1 LA, 3 Paras, 4 associates, 1 partner to manage. We continue to grow and will hire more. It’s another step on my path to equity partnership. Any recommendations on what to ask during the meeting? Salary? Perks? Red flags? Mid-Atlantic regional firm, 120 attorneys.

Need advice on side hustles and PT gigs. I work FT, my wife runs her own business PT while caring for our kids, and we are STILL living paycheck to paycheck. Combined we make over $80k/yr, but it's still tight. My wife is saying she can go back to work FT and shut down her biz, but a) I know this would make her unhappy, b) we want to prioritize our time with our kids before they start going to school, and c) we already pay for PT daycare and it's EXPENSIVE. FT is outrageous. Thoughts?
Any insight on what it's like to work at Plaid?
Does anyone here practice cannabis law? How candid are you when filing federal documents (i.e. EIN for the entity)? Is there an issue with a company disclosing that it’s a cannabis business or should the activities of the business be described in broader terms?
Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)?

How do other women in sales deal with leaving their family for work trips? I've been in sales a long time but now I have a partner and an infant. My partner gets frustrated when I have to leave because we share all of the parental duties equally when I'm home and me leaving is very distruptive. How do others deal with this?

I have been in the car business for about 2 years now. I have had a fairly successful career at my company, but it is drying up faster than I thought. Quality has gone down and it’s time for me to make a change.

This brings me comfort
Just realized I can’t contribute to a Roth since my income is too high (I think). TC ~190k and wife makes around 90k. I’ve only been contributing for a few months now at the advice from a CFP friend (he never asked me what I made). Should I go back to 401k contributions or is there a better option here? I expect my retirement income (via pension) to be higher than my HHI now.
I'm thinking about starting with a new company. I'm a commercial workers compensation underwriter with almost 3 years of experience.

Hi 🐠 — looking for TS(SCI eligible) opportunities, ideally in the New York City area. Anybody know if there’s anything to be found? I’m a bit pessimistic, and expecting most cleared opportunities to be in DC (which I’m trying to leave) or military hubs. Any leads are greatly appreciated!

I've had a whoop for the past 8 months and since the last firmware update it simply doesn't actively synch and it's basically junk. I switched from my old apple watch 3 because I wanted the active heart rate monitoring to help my doctor with my blood pressure and it worked amazingly well. Considering the whoop 4 is seriously backordered, what does everyone think of the Apple watch 7 coming out?
