5th year associate in biglaw. I interviewed today for an in-house position for a developer but they do acquisition rehab rather than new construction which is more what I’m into. Advice?

I’d start by asking what would happen to your job with the developer if the economy tips over in the next few years, as seems likely. Other factors include likelihood of making partner (a credential that matters whether you stay in private practice or not), how relatively good or bad your current job is, and what you want to be doing in 5 years, 10 years, and 20 years.

Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!
