Anyone (or knows someone) that lives in Dallas and flies with United or Delta? Is it somewhat convenient or not at all? I dislike AA and am thinking of switching
Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
Is it possible to lose weight around the holidays with everything going on (i.e., parties, drinks, travel)? I wish I was serious about my health and fitness earlier this year, sigh. So far I've lost 10 lbs and my goal is to lose 50 more pounds by May.

Just passed a Delta gate that had a delayed flight. The guy on the intercom " we have ordered 10 pizzas and have waters for everyone while they wait, come to the gate and help yourself". #iflyunited
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after
Major crush. She is brilliant: intelligent, insightful, confident, kind, a champion of diversity, funny. But, id never overstep our workplace boundaries by extending an invite to drinks. Sighhh.

Any tips for in-house interviews with the CEO and the CFO? This would be for a senior role at a late stage, pre-IPO tech company.
I know not many of you are Union, but have you heard anything about a potential IATSE strike?
Lateraled to a team that is structured differently than my former team. My last team was top heavy (3 partners:1 associate). My new team is the opposite (1 partner:4 associates). I’m assuming the work is there because the firm probably wouldn’t allow a partner to have that many associates otherwise. I’m having a difficult time ramping up. I’ve talked to the partner, who said not to worry about it, but my bonus is tied to hours (need 140 hours/mo until December, so just mildly panicked).
MBB manager vs FAANG product: pros and cons? I was excited about the perks in consulting but with all of them gone (and likely we’ll never go back to the glamorous lifestyle fully), product roles that I earlier said no to seem lucrative.

Good day all! I am seeking successful female attorneys ~ those who've paved their own paths ~ to tell their stories, of what’s possible, to inspire other females ~ those who want to bail on big law, grow their own law practices, focus on a family, or even seek something... well... totally different for her career...for my podcast. The podcast is conversational, not formal interview style. DM if you have a story to tell, or if you know someone who does!
Thoughts on the rise in internet/IG lawyers?I’m seeing a lot of attorneys charge flat fee for contracts & agreements for anyone in any state or country. It seems like a great business idea that but I’m trying to figure out how they do it. I’m very concerned about practicing in another state since the client would live in another state, as well as, missing an important state nuance since I don’t practice in that state and know the lay of the land.
