Cravath, breaking everyone's hearts and destroying dreams of that extra cash. RIP to all associates at Cravath and other firms that have not made a decision on bonuses yet (because it probs won't happen now haha) Edit: Not saying I agree or disagree with bonuses, I just wanted to post since it's been a hot topic.
3rd year at a V10, billed just barely over our target first 2 years, never had a bad review and things seem not that bad. Biggest stressor is usually not enough work/watching others gun. Anyone else?
I'm an Ops Manager and we have about 150 employees. I'm being forced to create an "Outdoor Office." Has anyone else dealt with this sort of initiative? Is it just me or is this a bad idea?
We interrupt this crisis to ask a boring question. How do you manage the never ending onslaught of email? How do you organize countless topical articles that you want to retain?
Thoughts on taking to partners formerly in government about leaving for the government? The firm is pretty good about encouraging people to go to government. Ideally would like to move in 1.5 years.
Do any other attorneys find themselves constantly setting depositions and appointments for other attorneys in their firm?
Hey partners: what are some of the best/worst/most entertaining things you’ve seen written in an associate’s self-evaluation?
How much value do you place on a good boss? I work at a midsize regional civil defense firm. The partner I work for is great, but I think I am undervalued. How much value do you place on a good boss?
Has anyone moved intra-office in their firm before on their own initiative? Example, I’m in market 1, wife (non lawyer) wants us to move to market 2, where her family is and our firm has an office.
How do I find local attorneys to pair up with on cases? I’m licensed in an absurd number of cases and practice in debt defense/bankruptcy. So far, in all the states except my home state, all I’ve done is debt defense because with the 341s, it’s a little trickier than just sending local counsel. I’d draw up the plan and the attorneys in other states handle the more local aspects such as court appearances. I’m not asking how to get the clients, do a bankruptcy, or ethically split fees.

What perks do ACN SMs get? Considering moving over. For example, we get platinum AmExs and BD budgets
Just interviewed, 3 were great and one terrible mostly because the interviewers questions were vague and confusing. Pretty sure I bombed the 4th interview given the guys part given the demeanour. Does one bad interview out of a group interview mean a lot?
Currently watching this lady and her family wipe down every part of the seat and plane in their respective row. Then she touches the air vent with her bare hands before wiping...
Anyone ever been asked to be an advisor for Guidepoint? Looks like a paid informational role. Any comments on conflicts with existing employer or pay type/scale? Thanks!
I had a informational interview with an associate at an Investment Bank. Complete hardo, was asking me questions like how many haircuts are done a year etc. He also asked if I would choose a random company, do a model, and walk him through my assumptions. I’m going to include an operating 3-statement model, leading into a DCF and comps (companies and transactions). Do you think I need to do a sample M&A model or sample LBO for this company? I’ve never heard of someone asking for this lol
Do people typically work with multiple recruiters at the same time when searching for a new position? Trying to make the jump from Big 4 to industry. ￼￼
In a specialist group of approximately 20 to 25 people would you expect 100% turnover within 3 years? If not what percentage turn over is an average for consulting specialist teams?
Is anyone here in their late 30s and still single? I’m in a relationship where I’m not happy but it is not terrible but I’m hesitant to leave.
CKs came out this evening - check your AA app (no email yet). I made it for the first time and am very excited!
What are some of the crazy ways that you found out about your Eskimo brothers and sisters? My DMs are open.
My manager keeps saying “I” to describe something that I did or that we both did. Even if I did something all by myself, I always say “we” so she gets credit. Starting to question working with her.
