Getting lunch with a recruiter, what is this?
I am in the process of trying to lateral to a different firm in a different market. The head of recruiting asked to get lunch. Is this a screener? Not sure what to make of it. Does anyone else have any experience?
I’ve recently been spoken to like shit from a year 1 associate, shouted at over things out of control and then told off for responding to it by not saying the right things. I’ve not been at the firm long but the disrespect and humiliation is too much for me. The person made me cry after shouting at me in private and speaking to me a very degrading manner. I told my supervisor and in turn was asked whether I can continue working with the person, I said I could but now I’m doubting it…..
How do you tell if your managing partner is invested in your success? I feel like my managing partner couldn’t care less about my development, career, or success. They hardly ever speak to me and are not really doing anything to show me the ropes in a new practice area I undertook for this job. I am not in a position to leave due to past short stints, and things are not horrible, just want to tackle this feeling of abandonment.
My private company is providing the option to tender your shares. Does this mean anything good or bad about the company’s potential to go public? Is it a good or bad or neutral sign?
In California, can your boss tell you that you can’t park in the handicapped spot as it’s for customers? I have a few invisible disabilities one which can cause me to physically faint especially when it’s super hot out. I have a permanent handicap placard as well. I was asked if there is a reason I can’t walk to which I responded that I have a condition and it will cause me to pass out called POTs. He then told me to move my car out of the handicapped spot. Can he do this?
If anyone has any questions about K&S or any interest in lateraling, let me know! Definitely nicer people to work with and more humane hours than some other Firms.
I hate my firm, does anybody have any really good recruiter recs? I'm on the east coast, NY market.
Is there any firm size or practice area where you can make $500-700k/year (as a partner) and not work biglaw hours? I’m frustrated by my in-house earning potential but am also unwilling to work biglaw hours and don’t need the $1mm+/year payoff for biglaw partnership.
How do you know your value? Throughout my 10 yrs of being in a professional setting, I've had colleagues from various places of employment say, I don't think you know your worth. You're under valued, etc. What exercises/tools have helped you realize your worth and effectively advocate for it? TIA!

Did anyone work their last two weeks? I’m pulling up to the last 5 days and haven’t done anything really
Sales people- what’s the longest you’ve been able to push out the start date of a new position you’ve been offered and how’d you do it? Curious since there tends to be a ton of urgency getting a new sales hire started. Especially helpful if you’re in tech sales but interested in hearing everyone’s experience.
Thinking about seeking a lateral position with the ultimate goal of getting a retention bonus from my firm. Is this dishonest? They’re paying laterals through the nose and people who remain loyal won’t get even one of those meeting room pens with a tip you could use on a touchscreen.
Anyone have reference check software they can recommend? I’m looking to automate. Thanks!

Are there people here who are in say big 4, don't see themselves there in the long term and want to give a shot at MBB or other reputed strat firms but somehow that doesn't work out? What is the possible solution? Is moving to industry the only option?
Why is it that industry experience as a staff accountant carry little to no weight in the PA world? I spent 2 years at a F200 public company. Switched over to PA only to start from the bottom again. 😓

Kudos to the firm who did Trump’s tax, which utilized all the tax code they could. Also a point, taxing the rich never work.
