I would recommend voicing your intentions to you partner coach. They will help you with your career path.


I was previously employed with PwC. After multiple talks with partners/managers in both lines of service, I was basically told they want you to have at minimum, 2 years of service and great ratings.

Right on with @bcg. How many years have you been at assurance? You need to establish a a good run there with refs before making the leap.

I'd figure out what exactly you want to do. You need to be able to pitch your interest. If not, HR sees that as just wanting to get out of audit.

What’s the most petty thing you’ve seen a firm do to an attorney who is lateraling out? Mine just revoked my renewal paperwork and payment for 2021-22 bar dues, even though they’ve already submitted it I’ll still be an employee when they’re due (7/1). Money’s not the issue. They can dock the $400 from my final check for all I care. The administrative hassle is the petty part, and it’s so inconsequential that it genuinely made me chuckle. I don’t even blame them. Kinda respect the hustle tbh.

Salary comparison question here. Class of 2016, been doing lit ever since but switched firms last summer from boutique to lit/ins defense firm of about 30 lawyers. 2000 billable req. and salary just shy of $80k w/potential for quarterly bonus for billable hours and yearly bonus for receipts by 12/31. I’m in the South in a medium sized city (think ~700k not like ATL). Not looking to see what all you big law folks are bringing in but just curious about where I stand when review happens.


Trade Idea
I wanted to get some opinions on bonds as I think there will be an opportunity to short the market in the next few weeks. I have not fully fleshed out the idea and am currently researching potential strategies.

My thinking is that given the weak economic data each day that passes we are getting closer to another stimulus bill. Essentially any new stimulus that is passed will need to be paid for through bonds this should mean a surplus of bonds hitting the market resulting in lower

I’m subleasing my place and the current person that is interested is taking forever to pay the application fee. Also he mentioned something about a co-signer and I’m not sure if that meant he doesn’t have proof of income or doesn’t make enough.
