Let's talk about Christmas bonuses: Should you be penalized for leaving your firm in your bonus if you've generated significant amounts for the firm? Is that common practice? Disgruntled associate. 😂
I had my mid-year review earlier this month (it was delayed because my group is slammed). I started in September 2019, after a state supreme court clerkship. I received great reviews, and was hoping for a raise. The reviewing partners told me that firm evaluates for raises in July, and it is firm policy not to give raises to associates that have been with the firm for less than a year. The practical effect of this is that I will not receive a raise until July 2021, 20 months after starting.

Do you use a second monitor for your laptop? If so, which brand do you use? I have sidetrack and it’s a hit or miss when it will work.
Is reading through Fishbowl billable time?
Let’s talk raise negotiations. If the firm generally offers a 4% raise to associate attorneys every year (and its customary to accept and not counter) what percentage is too high of a counter offer? What would be reasonable? (plaintiff side so no billable hour; 3 year associate; Houston; low 60k salary)
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?
Looking for feedback on Paylocity and UKG payroll HRIS. We have 250 employees and rapidly growing company.
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.
Anyone have any insight into whether Polsinelli is going to make ANY move to raise in response to all these other raises?
How do you get billable work? Are you constantly knocking on doors & hunting it down? Or are assignments generally given to you? Do you ever have periods of being unable to find any?
I’ve been thinking of taking some time off to have an extra long weekend, but I find I’m always working on the weekend. Can you take a “day off” on the weekend to protect it? I just envision having Monday/Tuesday off and then someone assigning a task on the weekend so I just have to rush to finish it.
Going through interviews and struggling a lot with social anxiety and feeling awkward. In final rounds at a company where the next interview will be strongly focused on understanding personality and fit. Doing great on content but really can’t connect with people, especially over Zoom. Being a strong introvert doesn’t help either. Any recommendations on things you would do to connect beyond job related Q&A? Also, any tips to control nerves during the interview?
What is the most craziest thing you done on a Thursday homebound flight? Got drunk and done what? Any crazy stories?
Just a shout out at the diversity I have been seeing while on-line shopping. It is something I am really happy to see. The various skin colors, hair types and body sizes are refreshing! Finally, I see people that look like ME! There are still some aspects that I am trying to fully embrace because for too long I was feed the lie of what the "desirable" body or hair type was. BUT I am changing and I am glad my children will not go through that brainwashing.
