Office design ideas/resources? We are returning back to the office soon and I’ll be moving into a new, much bigger office (with a window!) My firm has essentially given me a carte blanche to furnish my new space. I’ve already ordered a sit/stand desk, what other must-haves or nice-to-haves should I look into?

How should I evaluate my salary? I’m a 1st year associate at a mid-sized firm (50 attorneys) with a monthly billable hours target of 170. It’s interesting to me that my billable amount in 3 months is equal to my salary, and I’m wondering at what point that should change. I understand there is overhead that I have to consider when analyzing this, but I feel sure there is a typical ratio of billing amount to salary and I’m just wondering what that looks like. Any thoughts here?
I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.
I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.
I hit a block, and now I can't seem to get passes at all. My effort hasn't changed. But I can't get meetings scheduled.
Has anyone experienced hitting a block like this? How do you overcome it?

I had my PHR back in early 2000, then made a career change to a paramedic (I know, right). I called SHRM and they said I'm eligible to test again even though I only currently have 1.5 yrs of HR.
I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.
Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks - lauren

How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day. I’ve been applying to AE jobs elsewhere but I’m competing with everyone who’s been laid off at this point I’m happy to get a rejection instead of being ghosted by the hiring manager. Any tips on getting out of this mindset? I feel trapped.
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?

I hear the best way to negotiate your compensation is to go get an offer letter with a similar company and role. If/when I do this, is it customary for my hiring manager to ask to see the offer letter itself? Or will be providing her the salary info be sufficient in itself?
