Anyone have advice on a home fitness gym? Have a spare room 12x11 that I’m thinking of putting a power rack and rower in.
How do I ask for pay parity with peers? External hires of course make a higher base, but some reps that have been moved up are making a higher base due to starting higher when hired as SDRs. I am a top 10% rep in the org, so do I approach it based on performance or parity? Also I know better than to name drop, but is it acceptable to admit that I know what my peers make when making the ask?
Does anyone have any advice on how to get a job with the foreign service, department of state? Besides taking the test.

I’m a SDR with 2.5 years experience looking to move up a notch into inside sales (those that allows closing of smaller logos) or CSM/renewals. I’ve been on a job hunt for the past 3 months but didn’t seem to find something suitable.
I’m looking for a job desperately because I’ve just resigned from my current company (bad move on my end).
Does any one knows of any companies looking to hire for those roles? Would appreciate any help I can get 🙏🏻
What’s something you feel like you do really well as a product manager but that your manager doesn’t notice?
I mean… great for Max but why LinkedIn? (Cont)
Honestly being laid off sounds pretty good as a staff working 65 hours a week 🤷♂️ would be making more money doing nothing.

When should I start to get worried that corporate is so slow? Have only billed 230 hours for the year so far and it doesn’t seem like things are picking up soon so getting nervous since my firm has a billable hours minimum requirement.
Public service announcement: please update your bio. I am in-house counsel and I regularly check bios and/or LinkedIn if you’re working for me or across from me, and I am shocked at how many senior associates and even partners in biglaw have no bio, no representative transactions, etc. You’ve already done the work, show it off! Such an easy way to sell yourself (and such an easy way to leave me wondering if you’re qualified if it’s missing).
What are hours like for a lawyer within a hedge/PE/VC fund? I’ve heard anecdotally they can be better than BL
Notice question. Can a partner ask you to defer leaving till a particular deal is closed etc, beyond your 2 weeks notice? Even if they can how badly will you burn bridges or ruin relationships by politely declining?
Transactional associates, how many deals should a junior be on at one time? Of course it will vary by involvement, but assume these are deals with either a midlevel and a partner or just the junior and a partner. Mainly thinking commercial real estate finance (borrower or lender side), but generally interested in all transaction areas.
My toxic hobby is trying to figure out how to bill when I start a project and find myself staring into the abyss 4 hours later 😩
Perk no 1 of lateralling:
Being able to flirt (and potentially sleep) with the former colleague(s) you wanted to flirt with without the fear of seeing them again on Monday
Has anyone been a U.S. Lawyer and tried to practice in England? And any tips for making the transition?

How do I find a good therapist in my area? I don’t have any promising referrals from friends, so I’m having trouble figuring out where to start.

Corporate juniors. What are you guys annualizing? I’ll probably finish somewhere between 1300-1400 billable hours.
Restructuring/Bankruptcy associates, how slow have you been this year so far? Seems like industry wide it’s been a very quiet year.
Senior M&A attorney. How hard would it be to transition into a fund? What kind of comp are attorneys pulling at funds? Any insight helpful!
I'm on a long term project (likely to continue on in perpetuity) and the relationship among team members is getting kind of crazy. A lot of stress seems to be building up among partners. I'm the senior associate assisting in the management of all workflows. My tasks are complete and accurately executed, but things are getting super toxic lately. Has anyone successfully disarmed a bomb like this? It's getting a bit wild and my next move is to try lateraling if this toxicity keeps increasing.

A1’s outlook is why Bernie Sanders was never taken seriously
It's not settled until they all matched, i think there is basically 0 chance they don't match at all unless they are secretly running out of cash and have been lying about it for years like some giant BigLaw-Bernie scam of sorts.
Yeah they would make the final push to merge before anyone found out.
The top firms are going to match. Surprised it’s taken this long, such a bad look and sour taste.
Yeah, sure, definitely care above the millions they make regardless 😊
I'd be pretty surprised if they don't raise again given the delay
@A9 they aren't. They have no choice but to match anyway and any "creative" move could be released in a different memo in a week or two. They gain nothing by stalling to come up with something creative in the same memo and are just annoying their employees by stalling. The only reason for a stall like this is working out new higher numbers
