Does anyone else question how they truly feel about this job? I don’t know whether I truly love it (some days I definitely do), whether I am addicted to the stress of being held hostage to emails and calls (kind of like Stockholm syndrome), or whether I am just doing this because I’ve invested so much time and money to get to where I am. Was there ever a moment where you settled and said “this is for me”. Would like to hear from more senior associates who have just doubled down on it.

I have a team member who has a tendency to miss deadlines, is reluctant to take on tasks which they don't like or refuses to participate in company-wide mandates w/o me & the other team members validating the why's. Prior to joining my team, this behavior was alluded to but never told to me directly. Now I'm seeing it. I've discussed missed deadlines which are acknowledged but w/o permanent resolution. I'm going to give her a verbal warning in the upcoming review. Other suggestions?

I’ve been in TA for 10 years and have been wanting to be an HRBP for 2 years now. My prior company had no interest in helping me develop and started with a new company 4 months ago. I was transparent from the start that I wanted to leave TA and was told I could do that within my first year. I’m receiving signs that I’ll, once again, be pigeonholed in TA. I’ve done talent management, DEI, engagement, but my lack of direct BP experience and TA titles keep me pigeonholed. What can I do?

Graduated May 2021, been at a top tier firm since then. I was supposed to transition to associate after passing the bar (just took feb). Now I’ve found out I’m being let go, with a 4mo runway. Mainly because of conflict with Senior Associate. Any thoughts on possibility of getting hired at another top tier firm even though my bar results are not in? Partner said I shouldn’t have any trouble landing new job, but I’m technically not a lateral so idk how true that is. Would love some feedback.

Currently a transactional junior associate at a v10 from a non brand name law school. Thinking of applying to a top 1 year MBA (maybe Kellogg or NYU) to explore non law career angles. Would ideally like to work at a startup maybe as chief of staff/legal counsel blend? Has anyone done something similar and would the MBA provide any value add in terms of education, network, or not being pigeonholed as a lawyer?
