If you are feeling sick or something during the day and WFH, do you feel comfortable napping it off and then getting back to work and working late if needed? I have friends that say this is totally normal and okay but I feel weird about it and can never actually rest to feel better if I do lay down
Any female MM/ENT AEs with SaaS or Fintech experience looking to make a move? Series D company positioned to IPO in 2 years. Would be wild if this works lol
Leaving mid-law to go solo. Restrictions/bewares on soliciting my own clients (who may have ties to other attorneys in the firm outside my practice area)?
What does your work schedule look like (roughly) if you are aiming for 1900 billable hours?
Took my first deposition today and it went great! I attribute some of that to the tips I got from here - I searched the group and saw some really good suggestions and things to keep in mind, and it really helped me! I’m a first year so I was really worried about it but happy to have found it to not be nearly as stressful as I expected.
Guys. I have an impulse purchase problem... (FYI I'm kidding. I have a small flock and am replacing a hen who died from being egg bound.)
Any tips on how best to draft an email asking for work from a partner who I haven’t worked with and who doesn’t know me? I’d like to get on their matters and want to craft an email that would actually get them to respond and be interested in giving me the work (as opposed to just acknowledging my interest and forgetting about it the next day).
Would my bosses let me move to work in a different state? I work as an internal consultant within KPMG, working for the firm within the internal HR team. I have been with KPMG for 5 months but I am wanting to move back home to be with my family - on the other side of the country. There’s only a 2 hour Timezone difference and I’d make sure to work on current time. My line manager I report to lives in another state to me anyway - and it seems to work well for her. Am I pushing my luck to ask?
First time founder - would you recommend square, stripe or something else for purchases between $150-$10k or what alternatively?
My stress level is bad due to working for incompetent people. One partner would send me work with garbage instructions or for things that are completely out of my expertise, and when I ask for guidance they turn around and ask another attorney to explain to me. What the heck - why would you give me work if you don’t even know how to do the work or what you’re looking for? How do these people make partners?
Is reading through Fishbowl billable time?
I graduated from law school in 2007, went to big law and was laid off in 2009 due to the Great Recession. I went back to school and got my LLM in tax, after a stint at big 4, I got back into big law but was asked to start over as a first year. Years later, close to partnership and being mentored in that direction, I lost my job due to something completely out of my control that I can’t get into. I always wanted to make partner, but I’m struggling at my new firm with not enough work (p. 1)
Currently, I have an employee who is struggling. Missing deadlines, making false promises to clients etc. Recently, I sat in one of his development sessions with his manager, and I was shocked at how disengaged he was and how junior he actually vs what we pay him. After some further investigation, we are afraid he lied on his resume and how his experience. How do you go about a situation such as this? This is a first for me.
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
Gave my two weeks yesterday and the case transition will be completed within a few days. Do I stay the full two weeks even though I won’t have more than 2-4 hours to bill a day (if I stretch it out)? Advice on what to do.
How would you answer a “Why X law firm over other magic circle law firms?” question in an interview?
As people start going back to the office/clients, I’m begging you, please stay home if you don’t feel well. I would have thought that was the one thing minimum everyone would’ve learned over the last year, but I guess not. Even if it’s not covid, there’s still no need to risk getting other people sick.
New senior. I have an intern rolling up to me this summer and he’s very excited and enthusiastic. Sometimes this turns into not listening and speaking over people to indicate knowledge of something

Question for HC 🐠 of color. If you were offered a role at a company where there was little to no diversity within the group you were interviewing for (not even at the level you were interviewing for, or at senior leadership level) would this be a red flag for you in terms of culture, & potential opportunities? I want to keep an open mind but this company has been around for 20 years. The people I interviewed with were great but im concerned that there’s a larger problem at play. Thoughts?
Is it true consulting firms care about your GMAT score? Talking about firms recruiting MBA summer associates of course. I managed to get into a top 10 b-school with low GMAT but will it haunt me?
I’m a current C going up for SC this year and in the process of looking for a new job. I am being offered senior consultant roles at tech companies. Is the level being offered normal? Any idea on comp I should expect?
Shut down at 7pm every day to invest time in my round 2 apps. Set personal priorities and team's expectations. My 1 rating won't help me if I don't get into an MBA program
Just need to vent about how incredibly shitty the commute from Manhattan to JFK is. 90 minutes yesterday in stop and go the entire way, had to take Queens Blvd.
Is 82.5K a good salary for new grad in nyc in industry? With everyone in strategy consulting and ib I feel like I am “behind”.
Do any AmLaw 200 firms offer fee splitting for associates? As a senior associate, I originate more than my salary and I know that many others with the same title in my firm originate little/nothing. Yet we are all paid about the same base and our bonuses are underwhelming. Sounds like a rant but am just curious.
Going on my first international trip for work. Damn. These are where the points are really at... 30k EQM and ~66 k of miles.... not to mention hotel and Amex points. Getting to see awesome new places and work in challenging problems - I want more of these trips!!!
Really want to exit consulting, but all I have experience in is making PowerPoint slides for our cloud practice… Where should I look to apply? I don’t actually have any tech skills (besides the aws ccp) but I really want to leave consulting for something with better wlb.
