If you’re let go via stealth layoff, will the partners who had you terminated actually reach out to other top law firms and tell them not to hire you? Seems far fetched but I’m curious whether this has or does actually happen.

I have a 21 month old and I feel like he is high maintenance. While he goes to daycare,when he comes back home, he won’t let me out of his sight and wants my attention 24/7. we just recently trained him to sleep in his own crib. i’m exhausted and starting to feel depressed-trying to balance work and life. thinking of quitting work even though I make a lot more than my husband. I feel so stuck and advice would help.

I’m contracting with a company in an admin role, but sometimes I’m asked to do projects that would normally be outsourced to a marketing or design company like designing a flyer for example. It’s not in my job description, but I have the skills to do this work and so why not ask me to do it? Is it out of the question to ask if I can be paid for that work under a separate fee as a consultant or something? Is that even possible?

Have an opportunity to join a place that will triple my comp, but I know going in that the team will micromanage me, there is little to no growth as no one at the top leaves, and most team members are stuck in old ways of thinking and it’s hard to get traction for new ideas. The money is tempting (and life changing if I stick it out for five years); but wondering how you would approach this situation.
