For those in b2b sales how are your orders placed most? Online, customer service or sales reps?
Does having parents/family members who are attorneys give someone a leg up either in law school or in the first year of practice?
Is it normal/fine to confirm with a partner the language in a paragraph in a document prior to sending out to a client if you are not 100% sure it is correct? I’m in capital markets and securities and often times am unsure of what to include/how to word, particularly for private offerings. The answer seems to be obvious (yes) but I am a year and a half into traditional practice with prior adjacent experience and don’t want to be seen as not confident or that I am not progressing.
How long do you typically allow for self assessments and manager assessments for year-end? This year we gave employees a week and managers 3 weeks (holidays not included), but they still said it wasn’t long enough even though most waited until the very last day to complete them.
To hr professionals in finance..I’m considering getting an online certificate through Cornell in data/analytics. Worth it or do employers think it’s equivalent to Coursera?
Pfizer is 80% effective after the first dose and 90% effective after the second dose, according to a new real world study. Most ill effects are from the second shot. So I’d prefer not to take the second shot. Am I wrong?
How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
Does anyone have a dashboard or excel template for turnover/attrition where data can be easily “dumped” in for a beautiful display? TIA!

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?
I need help getting in the right frame of mind for my evaluation. I'll have my first annual review tomorrow and I'm anxious about what to expect even though all signs point to positive feedback. Starting a new job during the pandemic, it's been hard to read people I work with remotely and only just started seeing in person. I've forgotten how to strike a confident but deferential tone in a meeting, especially one where I'm being scrutinized. What if I seem nervous & they think I'm not confident?
Any thoughts on family law as a practice area? Got offered 110k plus bonuses with low billable hours requirement. I'm in Los Angeles. Not sure if I should get into it as a practice area though as I hear conflicting things. Any thoughts would help. Thanks
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
So other than money (which is obviously very important) what’s the incentive to make partner? Is it crazy that I just want to do my work and go home to my amazing family without the added pressure of running a business and managing others? I’m only a third year (in a new practice area) so maybe the thought of being competent enough to ever be a partner just seems unrealistic. 🤷🏼♀️
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Does this get better or do we just hate our lives (and not have lives) until we leave the legal field altogether? Wondering if academia is better…

Question about prenatal care and insurance coverage. I have Aetna Innovation Health which covers prenatal care but have received a few bills from my obgyn—seems like costs were partially covered by insurance but I thought all of normal prenatal care was covered. I’m wondering if it’s because of ultrasounds or specific blood tests I took. Is this normal?

Overall, I am getting around 50K jump from current salary which includes signing bonus as well base.

This new opportunity does not have bench time but as I said pay is good with again staff augmentation. I am confuse if I should accept this offer or not?

My agency had layoffs & told an AS that they “support” him changing his own title to Account Director for job searching purposes. He’s been an AS for 3yrs here+5yrs prev job. Should I say something??
Do you use ours against your assets in your long term portfolio? I have heard so many say both ways. Yes the cost is great due to the negative correlation and offsetting the losses in a big drawback others say if you are DCA why bother you buy low and why not self insure
Have you noticed (either in school or in person) that social-distancing and cleaning standards are becoming more lax?
With all the recent layoffs I really hope Deloitte is not internally celebrating their “revenue growth”. For those laid off, wishing you all the best in your job search.💛
Best WFH setups for a small space? I have a studio apartment and work fully remote. Looking for something attractive and space conscious- but needs to be comfortable/ergonomic enough to get me through busy season. Looking for a comfy chair that is good for my back and not an eyesore as well.
