At my firm (or at least the office I’m in), all of the JV and entity docs associated with a RE deal are handled by lawyers from our corporate group. The RE lawyers mostly just stick to the dirt work. I don’t love it and I’m beginning to question how “normal” this division of labor is. How does your firm handle it?

Deloitte strategy analyst up for promo to consultant (would have to leave before promo decision) - is it worth leaving for LEK associate (entry level) role? Is experienced hire associate pay any different than campus hire?
Going to Tahoe to ski in Feb. I have the option of a 1.5 layover in PHX or 3.5 hours in AUS.
Is 1.5 hours enough in PHX for bags to transfer? I really don’t want my ski equipment to miss the transfer but 3.5 hours seems overkill. My layovers will both be around 5pm local time if that matters.
anyone else taking strattera having sexual side effects? (ED,etc) just started taking it and wondering if that goes away after a bit or if it’s ongoing because no… just no.
Sitting here drinking a white claw when I see my cat Bootsy watching me *very* intently. Reminded me of the end of last school year when I noticed a student discreetly recording me while I was eating my lunch. I saw her sitting there in her seat with the face of her phone angled in such a way that it appeared that the camera lens was aimed at me. "Are you recording me?" She put her phone down and murmured an affirmative. So sketchy. Have you ever had a student recording you discreetly?
How do you feel about brands trying to top each other by getting crazier or sounding edgy with their voice/content? Who do you think is doing it well?
I’ll start, I think Slim Jim does a great job with wacky content/voice
I currently work in SaaS software implementation and really want to break into product management. I am finding it hard to get interviews. I feel that I have a ton of transferable skills - agile delivery, customer insights, working with ui/ux, engineering, marketing, business, IT to get something shipped and more. Anyone willing to help me out? Review my resume?
What do you do on weekends?
I think there needs to be a fishbowl friends or fishbowl dating aspect similar to Bumble. Would make this app so much better…
Has anyone successfully outsourced one or more of their roles? If so, please share details.
What is the name of the app that is used in NY to serve as a vaccine passport? And does it work/is it necessary in California?
I’m visiting my parents this weekend and they said some places request the vaccine record, but I’d rather keep mine safe so I don’t lose it.
I was offered a great signing bonus but it’s tied to a 3-year contract. Would that be a dealbreaker for you? I was thinking 2 years at the most would be reasonable.
I’m looking to take some certificate classes. Can anyone point me in the right direction for affordable online classes?
Just got an email our whole agency isn't getting bonuses for the year. Anyone else in this boat?

Has any one here experienced a “pet to threat” moment within the work place? Do you have any stories and advice on how to handle it. To understand whether it’s you or them or both.
True or False?
Just got some feedback that my resume, reads “too Black” because my involvement in D&I groups and activities...I’m offended, but are they right?

A former boss of mine liked a trump supporting LinkedIn post. He didn't even like it, he celebrated it, so I don't think it's accidental, since you actually have to hold down the like button and choose celebrate. Idk how to feel.

Anyone have any leads on paid social roles? Agency lost the business. Just told me there are no roles available at my level. 😢
Is there really any way for corporate brands to get Juneteenth-centered ad ideas right beyond a major contribution to causes or non-profits benefiting Black people?
What else could they say or do that’s actually meaningful, especially if they wish to avoid the very specific subject of American Slavery?
Hello fishies! Anyone looking for freelance strategy support? I mostly work on creative strategy and qualitative research but I have done quite a bit of brand strategy, social strategy and community management too. I have deep experience with social impact + DE&I and have worked across a variety of industries - tech, CPG, health, education, cannabis, government, finance and more.
I know this isn't advertising related, but check out my wine site. I just recently opened up.
Has anyone come across any good podcasts centered around design that is hosted by a person of color?
I recently found out that a white team member who does the exact same job I do, on the same client, makes $30,000 more than me.
I wouldn't mind not having Juneteenth off, if it meant not having to see stuff like this again
Been feeling pushed out as a new (read white) person has taken lead of my accounts. The entire team is shifting but I seem to have been targeted specifically as all of my responsibilities have been taken from me and unevenly spread out to other people, in a haphazard way. It's probably time to go isn't it?
Whats up with Spike DDB these days? Can’t find any creatives that have worked there recently.

Whenever I got promoted to digital ACD a few years ago, I noticed my pay was much lower than I expected for the market I’m in, hard to find skillsets, performance, and visibility I’ve brought to the agency. I’ve brought this up a few times and was told HR would do research into salary equity, but the convo always fades. I put my foot down with my GCD, and she supports me, but I would like to come to the table with my own research. Where should I be looking for accuracy?

LA is full of Black people.
Crenshaw? Leimert Park? Watts?
You said it
My family is in the valley and there’s a collective of successful black people there
We are here. I'm near LAX and I see plenty of black folks daily.
Good observation. The composition of blacks in Los Angeles is very small compared to most large cities. We are mainly a Hispanic city.
