One of my close former work friends is taking time to focus on herself after a particularly rough year. I think she will come back to the industry. She has five years under her belt and is treating her time off as a mini sabbatical that will bring enlightenment.

@CD1, a good story or a good reason? I ask only because I've had great stories come from stupid reasons.

Define "time off" - can't see a month or two being necessarily a bad thing.

If Vayner is the last place on the reso and you come to be for a job a year later I'll understand and assume you had to take a year long shower to get the ick off

Would you rather: (1) stay in big law (V100), collect your checks, keep billing 1900+ annually, knowing you’ll likely only progress to non-equity partner but stable pipelines for work; or (2) transition to boutique firm with no billable requirements, no minimum salary, on a pure revenue split (half of collections), option for equity partner in 16 months? In this scenario you’ve been practicing for 10 years but took some time off for babies and to lateral.

I’m up for promotion this year, and I’ve been working so hard and my feedback is amazing and I’ve wanted this for awhile. Now, an immediate relative is actively dying and I may go out on a short leave, and I also have some PTO planned so that I can visit family oversees later this fall. With all that’s happening, I’m not going to hit my 90% utilization target, which is a checkbox in my promo. (cont).

Hopefully it resumes from there when they continue

I posted this question in some profession specific groups but I feel like this group might be more understanding. I am a mom of two young children. I am fully remote right now. Supposedly flexibility is also part of my job but in reality my job requires 24/7 availability and extremely high workload (holiday, weekends without extra pay). I am currently considering taking the government job that requires 2-3 day a week in person work but better work life balance. What are your thoughts?
