Smaller Firm Question - how long do you give associates to start making a profit (i.e. doing sufficient billable time that is collectible) before you begin with warnings or termination?
Scenario: 1 Senior associate transferred laterally but did not bring business (this was known), 1 Junior is 3 months in, but seems unable to bill even his own salary, no less enough to cover other overhead. I am billing more than both combined (both hours and $$) and it is driving me crazy.
Have pretty much outsourced my toddler’s daycare to YouTube – Thomas the Tank Engine, Gekko’s Garage, Bob the Train, and Buster the Bus – and I’m not particularly ashamed about it now, considering the circumstances.
Looking to hear from data scientists, do you find your job to be engaging? What does a typical day look like for you?
Job listing: You must have an incredible creative reputation and internationally recognized work.
Can we talk about how awards can largely be a pay-to-play scheme? What if you freelance and the agency/client doesn’t share credit? What if the agency/client doesn’t bother with awards? What if it’s the same circle jerk of milquetoast talent receiving the honors?
Every time I see a job listing requiring international awards, it sounds like another agency looking for the right “culture fit.” 🙄
I don't want to hear about sustainability and love for climate during climate week from executives who flew from one continent to another to talk about it.
New to watch collecting. I got this Tag Formula One as a graduation present from my parents a few years ago and really do love it. Any suggestions on what I should get next in a similar/slightly higher price range?

BURNED OUT MOM! And sad to say it. 😔 I have a 2.5 years old boy and a 6 months old baby girl. The boy is becoming so so stubborn. I feel like his daddy and I are doing something wrong. He used to be way more behaving and generally a sweet boy said the daycare and neighbors. I know he is a good fella. Could this be just a phase?! It's worth mentioning both his dad and I are going through stressful times at work.

Hi! Looking for advice on a possible move from LS Consulting to in house. There’s some considerations: I’m a registered lobbyist (so I consult and directly lobby), do not have a JD, have 2.5 years experience working in Big Law as a non lawyer lobbyist, and am looking at a range of companies (Pfizer, Genentech, Regeneron). I work with many of these guys and have been reached out to - I’m trying to figure pay range for a lobbying position in house at pharma companies. Glassdoor is unhelpful so far
