I have four years of audit experience and jumping firms to get a manager title because I can. Even if I do get a manager role, I feel like I might not be ready yet. I have done many audits from beginning to finish by myself, but there will be area I am not completely comfortable. Were you very ready when you were promoted to manager? Or did you just fake it until you make it? What is expected as a manager? I incharged and worked with partners to issue jobs directly because my jobs were small.

Hi all. Could you please share how EY GDS is in comparison with the other three back-end entities in terms of WLB, perks etc. ?

I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?

Can I ask you all if a mistake I made is a big deal or not? I have an anxiety disorder, so it can be hard to tell if I'm catastrophizing or not. I formed an LLC, and listed the wrong third-party registered agent. Fixing it will cause an additional fee. Thoughts?
I work as a paralegal in the Bay Area. I’ve only ever worked in biglaw, but am considering switching to in-house. I was wondering if anyone here has worked in both and can share some insight into the pros and cons of each. Thanks!

Hello! I hope everyone's weekend is going well.
I was wondering if it is a red flag if a legal recruiter from a law firm reaches out to me on the weekend for an in-person interview on the early weekday.
Thank you so much in advance! I really appreciate it!
Has anyone worked in public finance? I have an opportunity to work in this area of law but I am not familiar with it (I currently have experience in IP / Corporate). I am also a little concerned about work life balance in this area of law.
Hi all - any tips/what are some Do’s and Don’ts for in-house interviews for big NASDAQ or FAANG companies? TIA!
The insurance company I work for outsourced a huge majority of my work to a third party, ontellus 🤮. I am not longer able to bill for NPNP, SDT and CNOS. I received 5 separate NPNPs from ontellus that either had the incorrect case style, signature block or date. I also sent out an email today after the 5th incorrect NPNP that started with “I am honestly starting to feel like I am on the show Punk’d and waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop into my office” continued in comments..
Anyone whose role is a Contract Analyst, how would you describe your experience learning the ins and outs of contract work? I come a litigation background and have an interview for a Contracts Analyst position that I’m interested in, but unsure of what to really expect from the role…I draft boilerplate pleadings regularly so I assume it’s similar? Any insight would be helpful! TIA!
Is anyone here a litigation paralegal at Amazon? Or knows anyone that is? Just got an offer but trying to find out if it’s a good one. A little confused on the compensation breakdown. Also, how is it like working at Amazon? How is the work life balance? Do you think it’s a great move to go in house?

Why do paralegals get paid less than attorneys and we do a good amount of their work except going to court and meeting with clients ?
New to Fishbowl?

If they won’t compensate you fairly, time to move on. It was once said the best way to get a large raise is to change jobs. Best of luck!! 💜
Do you have contract law experience? Contract administrators are in demand with good pay outlook. If you have any legal compliance background, becoming a compliance specialist could also be a good path.
Thank you so much
I’m at 2YOE and all I can do is show my sympathies. Your work ethic speaks for itself and I know you will be appreciated somewhere.
Go in house! You’ll likely make that salary and it’s so much better than firm life.
This has been my experience. I literally make twice what I did at my last firm and 40k more than the most senior paralegal I’ve ever worked with (she had 20+ years).
Where are you located?
I’m from Pgh! Live in Baltimore, MD
