How do you ask for a raise? And I do mean quite literally what words do you say. I have a mid year review coming up and I want to ask. Just finished my first year, started at a very low salary (65k) for defense litigation associate and no raise yet. I am in a state where wages are lower than the big cities but I still think this is too low given partners make 250k-500k/year. Thanks.

There is a partner at my firm who literally makes it seem like it is beneath him to even have to talk to you while giving you an assignment.

It’s not even like we have personal issues, he just completely lacks the ability not to make you feel like your presence is beneath him.

Work BURNOUT… LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. So a little back story. I am 38 a full full time single mom. I work about 60 hours per week. I do not get child support. My employer currently expects me to bring in 15 new customers & 100 existing every month… minimum. I have realized with my upcoming paid time off that I am burnt out. I recently have had no motivation to produce because I so desperately need a break. I sell internet and am the 2nd top producing rep in the region. Opinions to get my mojo back.

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?

I’m about to give my two-week notice next week and I’m just slightly worried since my proposed last day at the firm would be the day I’m supposed to receive my bonus for the prior year (oct ‘19 - oct ‘20). I’m just slightly worried that they could do something to try to screw me out of it - even though its for the prior year and I billed out at the highest bonus threshold we have. I was thinking I’d wait at least until my bonus figure was communicated in writing. Anyone disagree w that approaxh?

Does anyone deal with constant disrespect in the workplace due to their age ? It’s crazy how secretaries are placed on a pedestal here because they are older and I guess have been here longer? But it’s becoming so draining. Beyond the petty things, I requested off for an event months ago and am now being told I may need to come in because the secretary requested off too( even though I told her about the day off months ago. For background there is an alleged rule that we cannot both be off)

If you’ve switched from HR generalist (manager, director, etc.) roles to specialize in something, can you share how you made the switch? Curious how to articulate to potential employers how I’m qualified to specialize rather than be a generalist, if generalist roles are what I have for 6+ years of experience. Thanks!

Recently I was at a party where I was one of only 2 black people (out of maybe 20). The other Black woman spent a lot of time talking about race, ethnicity and identity. Another guy (Black) I know also loves to talk about race and identity. I get bored with it quickly. Am I missing something?

The other woman at the party was also a Jehovah's Witness closet lesbian so there was that. Another lesbian (white, out) showed up and they had a bunch of laughs. Are other Black folks bored by race talk?
