Anyone have insight into Sheppard Mullin, McGuire Woods, Goodwin, MoFo, Gibson Dunn, or Akin Gump’s Employment Law practice groups (and/or San Francisco offices)? Currently at a big law firm but am burning out because we’re understaffed and I’m working for difficult partners. Looking to make moves but not sure if the grass is really greener 🙃

Goodwin is excellent. Full disclosure - I’m an associate at Goodwin but corporate. I work with the employment groups often, especially the SF office ones and they alll seem great.

Of those, I've heard good things about Goodwin, MoFo, Gibson Dunn. I work in the bay area but corporate. Any reason why you're not considering some of the other local firms?

Suggestions on a town that is resonably close to the Boston Airport and still affordable (under $700k for a single family home), also have a kid so schools are eventually going to be important. Suggestions?? Resonably close to the airport to me is an hour or less of car/commuter ride. I am thinking we may have to travel at some scale over the next year and beyond hence the proximity to Bos Logan is important.

Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies. We are considering staggering our leaves (I’d take a couple weeks right when the baby is born, then go back to work until her leave runs out, then go out) to save $$ on child care. Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?

MBB or FAANG (Ops role)? Similar comp structure

I’m the person who tells people it’s okay to open up at work about mental health issues, and that it’s okay to talk about it. I’m also the person who struggles with mental health but will likely not talk about it at work because of the past experiences I’ve had where colleagues brushed it off and told me to let it go/be better. I just don’t want others to not have anyone to talk to… but maybe it’s really me who doesn’t have anyone to talk to…

Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now.

I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
