Does anyone have advice for switching to a competing (boutique) firm without causing animosity? I’m a first year, and my current firm took me in like a stray cat and nurtured me, but now their direct competitor (and better) firm is trying to poach me. I’m caught between loyalty for my current firm and a better career trajectory at firm B (partnership track, more $, rockstar senior attorneys, better cases). I just feel HEAVY guilt and would want to reduce any ill feelings if I do leave. Possible?
This is not work from home, it’s work at home. I can feel the unrest among managers as they check up on you every 30 mins and dilute all professional and personal boundaries
Alvarez & Marsal: does anyone have any information on their private equity performance improvement practice?

Another visa post: Has anybody got their H1B stamped in Canada recently? Don’t want to get stuck there if they don’t approve.
I recently changed my employer with decent salary increment and a title bump(Manager). Unfortunately I am stuck with Manager who is really rude, micromanages and when asked for help shows authority. Every day since i joined has been miserable and I just don't feel motivated to work. Also work life balance has been sketchy. Changing jobs is really challenging due to immigration restrictions and bad economy. Any help fishes? How should I deal with this?
How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.

Does your firm have a legitimate amount of projects still going on right now? I was told by various leaders at my firm banking and Healthcare were still busy as ever, and then I ask people in the practice, and they say their clients have hit the pause button on almost everything. Would like to think "pause" is all this will be, but have to believe mass layoffs are just a matter of time. Meanwhile, tech is the only industry hiring 😩
Non-top MBA graduate, did not network at school (you know, raising kids and all), been applying to over 200+ jobs, how do I advance?
