Are litigation skills & experience transferable across all practice areas? For instance, would a construction litigation firm/role value my background in insurance litigation?

Some skills yes - questioning witnesses, basic drafting, etc. Others less so. Construction cases often are arbitrated before industry experts. Coverage and insurance defense cases often aren’t. Arbitration is a completely different animal that civil lit in court. Given differences like that the more experience you have in a niche practice the less year for year credit other niches will give you for your experience. But if you’re junior transitioning is likely to be pretty simple.

If anyone is thinking about going on flex time, I would highly recommend it. It might not work for everyone, but my experience has been a positive one. I took a 20% pay cut along with 20% reduced hours. I am able to support my family with that income and my firm respects my limited hours, but I still need to plan to make sure I can complete tasks in my reduced hours too. Anyways, if you like what you do, but don’t like the long hours and can take a pay cut, I would do it.

Do folks in tech reach higher levels of compensation than consultants 5 to 10 years post MBA? I still keep in touch with many of my classmates who made a beeline to work for FAANG firms post MBA, and their compensation absolutely dwarfs that of MBB and Big 4 by a fair amount and the gap only seems to widen with time. The wlb, by all accounts, seem to be much better too.

Would love to hear from anyone else who made a similar move or knows others who jumped to tech?

Serious question….with all of the pressure on the tech sector, companies freezing hiring, stocks down, companies cutting costs, how are things over in salesforce services? There is a lot of momentum overall for the services side of here economy (relative basis) in the US but a services division of a tech product company may be another matter. I hear salesforce is already slashing spending, cutting travel, etc. would value any views especially from the inside.

So I recently found out that my current company is underpaying me. And by that I mean that literally any other company is willing to pay me 15-20k more than what I make now. In my current role they've asked me to take on extra responsibilities with no financial compensation (scrum master type stuff) while still doing my engineering stuff. I don't necessarily mind it, but I'm starting to feel like I'm being taken advantage of. Is it reasonable for me to ask for a raise? Or do I go somewhere else?
