Pryor Cashman associates — what is your work/life balance like? Do you often work late nights/weekends?
How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
I’m not happy where I’m at, my abilities aren’t being maximized as I’m spread thin, and I know I’m being undervalued. Recently graduated and in property management w/ 3-4 years sales experience. Currently on the hunt for Sales/Account Management roles leaning more towards consumer goods, then tech. Any advice?
How often do you respond to emails from law students who want to learn about your firm/practice area? I get like a dozen requests right around OCI every year. Frankly I’m tired of speaking to them and answering the same boring questions, especially if I know they have a low GPA and no chance of summering at my firm, but I do feel bad saying no/ignoring them
What’s the most petty thing you’ve seen a firm do to an attorney who is lateraling out? Mine just revoked my renewal paperwork and payment for 2021-22 bar dues, even though they’ve already submitted it I’ll still be an employee when they’re due (7/1). Money’s not the issue. They can dock the $400 from my final check for all I care. The administrative hassle is the petty part, and it’s so inconsequential that it genuinely made me chuckle. I don’t even blame them. Kinda respect the hustle tbh.
If you are at a big law firm that is not increasing pay according to market this year, should you look elsewhere? Is that a bad sign?

When a law firm is looking for a 33/34 act attorney does it need an one working primarily with public companies? Or private companies as well? I’m a corporate and securities attorney, all my clients are private EGC and PE/ VC/ hedge funds, I usually ensure that they are exempted from 33/34 acts

Solo who started pre-pandemic and as a result never transitioned into a traditional office setting. I enjoy work from home and it keeps overhead obviously low. I can afford to move into an office now (and planned to do so last spring before the shutdown). I find myself hesitating to make the leap. I’ve found most clients prefer zoom consultations or house calls. I practice in PI and cannabis. Curious to hear others’ thoughts on the necessity of a brick and mortar post pandemic. Thanks.

Looking for advice! I’m a SA (almost 1 yr in role) was an A for 2 yrs. Client is a tech company who I enjoy working with but I am hitting a wall in my role due to technical skills. The next step would be to go deep in the technical learning, which I don’t think is what I want to do. The alternative path for my team is project management, which I don’t want either. I’m interested in product management (would likely start with Associate Product Manager role) for a different tech company (Cont)

Hey moms, Any ideas for an impromptu last minute 2-4 day trip from NYC that we can take with our 2-month old and parents? Didn’t plan anything under the assumption that he’d be too young, but he was great during our recent road trip to Philly! Desperate to get out but I’m sure everything’s booked for the Fourth of July holiday! Doesn’t even have to be anything fancy ! Just need to get out for a change of scenery! Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

I am thinking of leaving government and moving to a matrimonial law firm. I had my first child in January and my husband’s job, which is 100% commission based, was hit hard due to covid (I was already the higher earner). The money is enticing, and I did matrimonial law for a couple of years in a neighboring state, over 5 years ago now. I’m really torn. I’ve been unhappy with a lot of aspects of my job as of late anyway, but I’m also nervous about billables and the change generally. Advice?

Are the days of getting an MBA when you’re already in consulting (pre-MBA) over? What’s the value of it with direct promotion?
Should I apply to Alvarez & Marsal's restructuring analyst? I have 5 years of accounting experience (regular tax and M&A tax), and I am currently wrapping up my MBA study (top 10). I interned at an equity research shop and I am currently doing a banking internship. I really like restructuring and the university has pushed AM's restructuring analyst post to me. But somehow I sense that this position is very junior. Should I still apply? What about the $?
