I’m getting ready for my first telephonic Case Management Conference as a first year associate. I’ve never been “in front” of a judge before. I received some training and I look forward to the experience, but I’m a little nervous about having to speak in front of the judge. I know the case, but I’m afraid I’ll freeze and make a fool of myself. Any advice re: court calls, courtroom etiquette, or stories about your first times in front of judges?

I am hearing a recurring theme in my exits, and I have had this experience myself. Millennial employees (20-30s) including myself, feel pushed into "technical" roles on teams even though we have never expressed this interest or any qualifications for them.
A consultant in Financial Services who found himself being the platform expert even though this was not his passion, not something he studied etc. My own experience was pushed to be the hris expert on the OD team. Anyone else? Is this bias?

Can anyone explain why a rainmaker would stay at a firm vs. strike out solo? I get the economies of scale of being in a large shop. However, there must be some point where it is worth it. Is it that the marginal profit increase isn't worth the administration? Or perhaps, is it the hedge against downside in the lean times. It seems that staying at a firm is beneficial to average Partners, but rainmakers seem to be disadvantaged to a degree.

I want to move to Portland, Maine. Currently I’m an attorney at a big law firm in Boston. I’m originally from a more rural area though and would like to move to a smaller city with better quality of life. Unfortunately I have zero ties to Maine, other than many weekend trips and constantly looking a Zillow. Does anyone have any information about the Portland legal market? How hard of a sell will this be to employers?

Hey everyone,

I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.

I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.

I hit a block, and now I can't seem to get passes at all. My effort hasn't changed. But I can't get meetings scheduled.

Has anyone experienced hitting a block like this? How do you overcome it?

Just joined ey as a manager. How quickly do you expect your managers or seniors to get up to speed on a client that may be a bit complex? I usually as a manager would give people atleast one season. Just wondering what senior managers and partners expect if managers. The client im on is a bit complex and it’s taken me a bit of time to learn. I’ve been on it for about 3 weeks now and just getting the hang of it. The director is pretty kind and said try your best there is a learning curve on this
