I need some advice, one of my goals for this past fiscal year was to improve employee engagement, among other things to get a promotion in July, when I asked my boss if we were still on track for this to happen as I have met all of my target goals she said her boss won’t put the promotion through. Right now I’m currently covering two positions, working 45+ hours and underpaid/undervalued. What should I do?

Hello all, so I currently am 24M working at tmobile. I just found out my store is closing at the end of this month. They're offering to transfer me but simply put I know for a fact I won't see as much traffic coming into the store so less potential for sales. I'm looking to find a good job to transition too. I do have my life and health insurance license but I didn't like what I did before. Any suggestions on good sales jobs or what to look into? I'd appreciate the help, thanks!

I’m getting ready for my first telephonic Case Management Conference as a first year associate. I’ve never been “in front” of a judge before. I received some training and I look forward to the experience, but I’m a little nervous about having to speak in front of the judge. I know the case, but I’m afraid I’ll freeze and make a fool of myself. Any advice re: court calls, courtroom etiquette, or stories about your first times in front of judges?

Did you start to enjoy practicing law after you had a few years of experience under your belt? I’m a second year in IP litigation and I hate how stressful everyday feels. It’s not as fulfilling as I expected it to be so far. I keep trying to convince myself I’ll enjoy it more once I feel somewhat competent.

Does your firm have regular mandatory social events outside of work hours? Mine just started doing this and I hate it. I’m missing time with my family and just feels like more work. Is it weird to just want to go to work and do my job and go home? I already work all the time, now I need to hang out with my coworkers during my precious free time?

Curious, has anyone left their toxic firm in a blaze of glory and informed HR the real reasons they were leaving? I am one foot out the door with my firm and I already know I will be labeled as problematic because everyone that has left has been labeled the same way. Firm can’t retain attorneys and has very high turnover rate. In the end I will likely bite my tongue and only discuss salary reasons because my legal market is small. Hoping to live vicariously through one of you brave souls.

Current analyst (1.5 YOE) here with a strong interest in DevOps and Project Management. I feel like I am slowly but surely getting pigeon-holed in L&D work. I don’t like it, but my leaders continue to tell me that all experience is good experience. Should I try to breakout and find a variety of experience this early in my career or should I try to make it to 3 years and re-evaluate then? Have you had a similar experience? What have you done?
