My number 1 tip if you end up being in charge of interns or first years is to invest as much time as you can with them in the beginning getting them up to speed, reviewing their work, teaching them, and see what they are capable of. This will pay dividends when you get super busy and don’t have as much time to watch over them. If you train them well they can really help you out but if you don’t put in the time early it will just hurt you

That is a good sign they think you can be acting senior. Set expectations from the start that you will make mistakes. There is a lot you don't see as a staff, or even senior, but do your best and ask questions. You will become the point of contact so good communication skills go a long way

I just heard that i lost out on a FAANG position after making it through to the final round. I prepped incredibly hard for these interviews, and I'm absolutely gutted. There was one interviewer who was unengaged and I did my best to win her over but maybe she thought I was a smartass instead. Anyway, just wanted to vent. I don't know how I'm going to build up the confidence to go through a process like this again without second guessing every statement I make during an interview.

I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance). I put in my notice and my Deloitte manager is trying to fight for me. He wants to match the pay they are offering and get me into a group that I like more. I am a ball of anxiety. Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?

Currently pegged as the defacto lead for my sub workstream with only one other project under my belt. I don’t know if this is complaining but I feel like I’m not ready to fill this role (contd)

Admittedly I was a little off this morning, and had a hard time finding the will to bear down and work. A Partner reached out to see if I was okay. I was honest, and said I was in a bad headspace this morning. What I thought was a nice gesture of checking in turned into "you can't be in a bad headspace and expect to keep your position" and "we are ready to let you go." Wow, thanks. Guess I'll just wait for the firing then.

I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.
