I have sent in my resignation letter on March 14th to my HR. But since then, I haven not received any document (release letter, official acceptance letter etc). My HR has just called me to let me know my LWD but apart from that no document or mail to confirm my lwd. Can anyone tell me what is the process? Also in Ultimatix it is showing that I'm on Active Assignment and Confirmed employee. Is it not supposed to change after i send my resignation? Please help me figure out the process.
Second interview with superintendent, does this mean I will be offered a position? Don’t know what to expect! Help!
Because after a week of drinking pretty much every night, sometimes you just want to stay in on Saturday night with a classic Western film...
What's a normal % increase from AM to SAM? I'm at 57k right now midwest, large agency. Looking to be promoted within this year, and am seeing Glassdoor averages of 70-72k for my company and competitors, but have recently seen people getting 85k for SAM. I have 3 years of experience.
Effing anxiety. Does it never go away? Mine comes and goes in cycles. I feel like I am doing fine one week, and then suddenly it arises and worsens and makes me want to end everything. And then I live like a walking corpse for a few days not able to feel anything coz I have given up on life. And then it gets better. Every few months. Is it going to be like this all my life?
Relationship with significant other ended. Feeling lost and hopeless, it hurts most at night. I’ve been through this multiple times already so I know it’s temporary and I’ll make it out on the other side, but no matter how many times this happens the pain still feels fresh.
When you beg for flowers and your bf tells I don't give a f for V-day and you are getting nothing 🙁
Off topic: friend wants to do an Airbnb for their birthday (rent a big house by a lake type thing). The pricing provided was for everyone to share beds (with other ppl invited, s/o were not invited) or maybe sleep on the couch. Am I totally elitist for feeling weird about sharing a room/bed with someone I’m not close with or haven’t spoken to in a long time? This feels like something I’d do in high school or college after a night of binge drinking but we’re all in our thirties now... thoughts?
Help! Any fun ideas for summer-camp activities (kids and/or teens) which follow social distancing guidelines?

Tips on giving notice over the phone? I’m required to be in the office 5 days a week but the two partners I work for never come on Fridays or Monday mornings
Partner- Do this today, even though its 4th of July since i have been working since 4am
Associate X (no way to anticipate this assignment and made plans with family) - I will be away from my desk until later this evening but happy to working on it later tonight.

Is there anything I can do about being "too efficient"? I get great feedback from the partners about the quality of my work, but I sense they wish basic tasks took me a little longer (cont.)
Have a call on Friday with the CEO of an environmental entrepreneurship non-profit. It could lead to a professional opportunity and maybe even billable work I can refer to my firm down the line. I’m going in with an open mind but little concrete information on his entity and goals and ways I could get involved. What questions would you ask such a person?

I joined a firm in December 2020 that’s super understaffed and busy. My hours are not great as I really struggle to capture all my time contempo, but I think my work is good and my caseload has increased steadily. I feel behind all the time though and like the position is a lot busier than I bargained for. Anyone deal with a similar issue successfully? I’m a senior lit associate and hate feeling inadequate 24/7.
All I seem to read on here is how unhappy attorneys are nowadays or they think the grass is greener elsewhere. Glad I saved $200,000+ by not going to law school.

Are law firms part of phase 2 in NY? Long Island is starting phase 1 tomorrow... I don’t want to go back to the office 😭
Junior at a big firm. New to this culture because I used to work in house. When a partner emails you on a weekend in the day time, do you answer within the same day? For ex, partner emailed me at 4pm.. I was out so I didn’t answer their question until 945. Should I have emailed them to say that I’d get back to them later that evening @4 instead?
