I’ve been working as an associate at a small firm for 2 years since graduating. Recently, I was offered an in-house position. I’m excited at the opportunity but wondering if I’d be able to return to a firm later in my career. Thoughts?

My first position I got handed a fairly endless research project: research and memo three areas of law (that are not the firms MO) in preparation for a new case. No specific questions, just research. Now I am 20 hours into a law review article on the topic. How would you narrow issues/wrap up so you know you have everything but also get this thing off your desk for efficiency’s sake? I’m a chronic overresearcher and I’m painfully aware of my penchant to take this into the weeds.

I became a people manager in the middle of a major implementation last year and we didn’t have a conversation around compensation changes - which I recognize was a huge mistake on my side for not ensuring we did. I don’t know if I can appropriately have the conversation now. I’m also considering leaving for a new position, but unsure if I could even make more money elsewhere. I’m currently a Senior HRIS Analyst making $99k base + 10% bonus potential. Just looking for some advice.

Good morning, I need some career advice please! I have been in recruitment for 21 years.  I started at the bottom as a trainee and worked my way up to manage a city temps division. I then went onto a boutique recruitment company for 7 years to recruit on the permanent side. I now own a small recruitment company of 2 and I am starting to get itchy feet. I would like to get back into the corporate world and thought about Talent Acquisition. Would I have to start from the very bottom? Thank you.

I work at a Big Law firm on the West Coast and my firm is allowing me to work remotely in MN during the pandemic to be near family. After being here for the past four months, I would like to remain here even post pandemic. I am not looking to change jobs right now because I am so grateful to have a job during these times. Does anyone think that the industry will change to remote working long term? And if not, does anyone have an idea of what the law firm culture is like in MN? I’m a 3rd year.

I recently made a move into compliance, and I hate it. It’s so boring, and I miss working with lawyers in a legal role. We just think and interact differently, and it’s never been more apparent. I’m fairly junior so I’m thinking of making the move back to a firm and doing my time before going in-house. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?

Credit card question - any negative impact to verifying income with a credit card company?

How do I gently tell my mom about this without upsetting her? I feel like I’m being a bad daughter but I want to avoid as much stress as possible post birth.
