Ever since moving to hybrid work, my coworkers are always complaining about how much they hate their jobs, how much of a hassle it is to travel or work from home. How can you be expected to do your job when you're just so far away from everything?
Mileage expense for airport drop off? I live about 65 miles from the airport in a rural area without Uber or Lyft. There are a few local services that do airport runs, but they book up in advance. My wife and I primarily work from so we only have 1 car. For a recent trip the car service was only available for the return airport transfer so my wife dropped me off at the airport. I’m planning to expense the round trip mileage - it would still be cheaper than the ride service. Thoughts?
I’m interviewing for an opportunity with Lockheed Martin in their HR/Recruiting department. All tips are welcome!

Editors and AE’s – I’ve heard so much heated debate on this topic: do you prefer your AE to be in-session or in a separate assist room for requests, sometimes from multiple editors/projects?

Juniors, is getting a very legible hand markup (in pdf) from someone above you annoying? Everyone else, do you do this?
Does anyone have a certified fraud examiner (CFE) certification? How helpful is it for investigations work?
I’m pretty sure some of the mids dislike my commitment to setting boundaries. I really try and stick to a 1900 hr pace (we have 1-800 minimum) unless it’s trial, but this means I actually say no all the time if it’s going to put my week over 45 hours. My performance reviews are great and no one’s mentioned it, but how long can I realistically last in big law before it becomes an issue? I’m a 2nd year, just trying to get to year 4 when my loans are paid off doing the absolute bare minimum.
Any intel on the following NYC finance/banking groups? E.g. billable hours, friendliness/culture, experience opposite them in deals.
Skadden, Milbank, White & Case, Hogan Lovells and Proskauer.
There is absolutely nothing worse than pounding sand at your desk, being bored as hell, just for optics to show you’re in the office bc you’re required to be in the office. What a giant waste.
Recent midlevel - how do you go about getting a junior involved? Do you generally check with the partner about staffing, etc? I’ve had juniors asking for work but not sure if I should check with the partner first
All people in MBA programs do is travel. Today they’re in class, tomorrow they’re in DR. Explains the quality of some of these Associates I see on some deals. That being said, a vacation would be amazing right about now lol
Are large firms disorganized? In a quest to quickly get work done, and to be thorough, it seems to me that large firms just throw bodies at the issue. No project management, no clear delineation of duties, no planning.
Mid-levels, to what extent do seniors/partners still make stylistic changes to your drafts? The substance is right, but a lot of times things get reworded. I haven’t had any complaints about my drafting, so curious to know whether this is still typical at the mid-level stage.
I sent from my work email a follow-up email to two people at another firm who I interviewed with. I sent from my iPhone and for some reason iPhone auto populated my work email instead of personal (even though I had previously only used personal to communicate with the other firm). I immediately realized the mistake (after double checking the sent box of personal and then the sent box of work email), and “recalled” and double deleted the message in outlook. Will employer likely see the email?
What does “collections” refer to LPQs?
Advice on how to navigate a personality? I’m a junior. There’s a counsel I’m working with, and… the vibes are off. They haven’t asked for anything unreasonable and have been pretty kind to me. But I’ve observed them scolding a mid and just bombarding people with calls. I noticed that other people on my team tiptoe around this person and the tone of communications seem a lot more formal. This makes me uncomfortable as all of my deal teams have been really positive and great to work with.
Any Gunderson, Wilson Sonsini, Fenwick or Cooley CA associates willing to talk about their M&A/PE practices? I’m looking to lateral (current v40 2nd year M&A associate).
Do you ever make dinner plans on weekdays? I stopped making any plans on weekdays even very late at night. Even during the slow times, I just cannot predict and things seem to come in at such random hours. This is normal here right?
How do I bill for menial tasks? I am constantly under counting my hours because my tasks are clerical/finding this or that/ excel sheet updating. I take hours since I’m new but I bill very low since my tasks don’t seem to match what the client requires. Any insight ? What should I write ?
