My first word was “alignment”…. I’m done 🥲
Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”
First yr in NYC corporate group. Trying to schedule private lessons either at 8-9:30 pm on a weekday or around lunchtime on Saturdays. Is Saturday an obvious choice? Is it okay to respond to emails after 1.5~2 hr on weekends (obviously not when we’re signing/closing)
It seems like everyday my bosses are asking me to do something different with my lesson plans. I have to add something or elaborate. I wish I had more support and really just an example of excatly what they want.

Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality? We can donate money or time individually, but a small group of us at my firm are brainstorming ideas that would make a bigger impact with some sort of large scale effort. Such a daunting concept. Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!

How would you communicate the involuntary termination of a team member at a startup? Typically, I handle these communications by having the manager have an informative session immediately after the termination to the employee's direct team and the news rapidly spread. However, as this is such a small team it may cause confusion and concerns for the team that stays. I feel like there isn't an "ideal" way to communicate involuntary terminations, but happy to hear your advice

So I plan to prepare treats this Halloween for the kids in my neighborhood. What kind of treats do I get to minimize dental damage? Putting in fruits, nuts, or apple chips would feel like I tricked them and ruined the treat, no? Do I just put in regular candy but add in a small travel size Crest toothpaste (like they do at the dentist) and pray that their parents taught them to brush regularly? My conscience is torn. Please help.

I am in a situation where my group is about to be laid off. I have not interviewed for 8 years and never in the US.

Are there any resources to get feedback on what I’m doing wrong?
Can you still negotiate up your salary after you're notified of promotion and new compensation package?
