What training or guidance are you giving managers at your firms about managing hybrid teams? There is a lot out there on remote teams, but a lot of us are going back three days a week which means people at home and people in the room. Any tips to pass on?
Aside from state/federal pay, what does your firm pay for parental leave? Firm size/location/weeks of pay. Please also comment if you have ramp up/ramp down policy!
Current firm is decent in terms of pay, practice area, hours, and advancement opportunities. Interviewing with a government agency—more interesting practice and a little bit of a pay cut. Yes or no?
How much heads up to you give a firm for a semi emgrecy medical procedure? I had a gallbladder attack and my doctor wants to remove it. It's not quite emgrecy surgery but not something they want to wait too long. My firm knows I was sick a day this week. How much heads up should I give them that I will be having surgery and might be out for a few days?
How much nonbillable time is too much? I’m a second associate at a midsized firm and I have 30-50 non billable hours each month. An associate at another firm told me this was really high. Thoughts?
For those of you in house, do you actually read the articles written up by law firms? I’m constantly being asked to do this non billable work and I’m not in a place to reject and want to know the actual value of this exercise.
Does anyone have any study tips or can suggest a helpful study tool for the HRCI SPHR exam? I used BenchPrepHR to help me prep and took a few practice test. I took my exam last week and unfortunately did not pass. Any tips would be helpful to help me prepare to retake in a few months.

Anyone else feel like work/billable hours gets in their way of taking care of their life? Hate having to choose between working to keep up with billables and taking care of my life whether that's the gym or whatever else. Feel like I never have enough time for both.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
6th year litigation associate here. Every recruiter tries to scare me into thinking I’m unhireable after next year. Who has lateraled as an 8+ year, where to, and how long till you got promoted after?
Hoping to move to DC and in order display my commitment to the move I’d like to begin the process of getting barred in DC. I’ve checked and I have a high enough MBE and MPRE score. Can I apply to the DC bar without my current firm finding out? They don’t have an office and don’t do any work there so I’m worried it would set off alarms for them.

Is it worth to take a step back to get more consulting experience for the long run? Currently S3 in international tax, up for promotion next year but the team is heavily focused on compliance and kinda have to fight for consulting work; got an offer from another B4 as a S1 with $95k base salary(NYC) but the team is mostly doing international consulting, would it be worth it to take the offer if I foresee myself in PA in at least 5 years?
