Interviewing for post-clerkship positions. Term ends in a month. Top choice told me I’m the only person interviewing for an unposted role. The interview went very well. It’s been almost 3 weeks since my last interview with my top choice. I emailed internal recruiter last week asking for timeline. No response. Need offer status ASAP because I can pursue other opportunities through connections but I don’t want to use my goodwill unless forced. BUT I need to pursue those options ASAP too. Advice?

Jumped from biglaw pship to join ~$2B company <12 mo ago. Pitch was to come grow into GC role and have strategic seat at table. Quickly learned only opinion that matters is micromanaging CEO/controlling SH and rest of exec team kowtows to his desires as (even when wrong) plus general hostility for back office functions. Has killed long-term appeal of this gig. Trying to figure out next steps (stay a while, jump to another in-house gig, go back to private practice) and any advice appreciated.

Just switched jobs. Old 401k has more than $5k and new 401k is with a different provider. Is there any reason whatsoever to move the old 401k cash anywhere, either to the new 401k or to an IRA? Given that it's more than $5k, it can stay there indefinitely, right? I'm fine with the investment options with my old 401k. And I can transfer it over to a new IRA or new 401k anytime, even years in the future, right? Given that no distribution will come to force the 60 day rule?

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking for years now if I should pursue an MBA program? I’ve heard from many that for some it was helpful and they needed it to get promoted. Others say that currently it can be seen as a waste of money if you don’t need it to be promoted for example. I’m asking because I’ve always wanted to strive to reach the highest level of education I can and I do like to learn but an MBA is an investment and I don’t know if it’s worth it.
I'm probably going to get an offer for a job with better work life balance and I don't know whether to take it. I have young kids and I find the firm culture difficult, but I really like my project.
