Get ready to work! It's fun to see things grow...but you gotta put in the time as well

Use your prior experience as a strength. I went from legal to tech after 15 years. Ended up knowing a lot of domain expertise because the job I landed was in financial compliance, including legal. Huge advantage when looking for jobs (if you used to be in the business line). Also leveraged my prior teaching experience as a strength for public speaking to leadership or training users.

Lately I have read a lot about automation and/or outsourcing of administrative work.

Do you see this happening at your firm soon? How close?

Put in my two weeks notice to go to a 9-5 style job where I will still be paid more for less work! I am a female, and when I told one of the male partners, they were like "yeah that makes sense, it will be great for starting a family." They know I am not even married yet. I tried to brush it off and say "yeah I'll have so much time to spend with my dogs." He proceeds to tell me how helpful it was that his wife had a 9 to 5 job when the kids were young. Why can't I want a chill job for myself?!?
