Winning the lottery.


Be a govie - perhaps not the “best” exit opp but plentiful in the DC area. That or work for a defense contractor like Lockheed or Northrop.


Capital One, Marriott, Hilton. There are also plenty of tech companies in the area. There's also biotech in Rockville.

There is also Nestle but they seem impossible to break into.

After nearly a decade at disorganized small firms where I wore many hats (and sometimes nearly every hat!), I accepted a biglaw offer as part of a team of maybe a dozen Legal Secretaries. This firm invests a lot into training and staffing, which I think would be great for an ADHDer like myself. The firm has great Glassdoor reviews and everyone I have spoken to so far seems really happy there. But I am still nervous about the transition straight to biglaw. Any advice?


I’m having a sit down with my creative directors next week, they have some concerns. I’ve been doing well with my radio and tv assignments but not as well with my collateral and email assignments. I’m having trouble adopting the already established voice of the latter but the tv and radio work I get to create my own voice for each project. Any advice on how to plead my case of having some degree of difficulty and not intentional doing bad work?

Hi! Is anyone using Microsoft Teams functionality with an Admin team specifically? Looking for some good use cases of anyone has any.


How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.


Hi Fishes .. I have an offer from Delta Airlines for a Product Owner role
. Can anyone help me with the below questions

1) Hows the work life balance?
2) Company Culture? ( Agressive .. Hierarchial .. Too political)
3) Job security in the current economic climate
4) Any rumors of Layoffs?

Thanks in advance!!


When the other associate(s) staffed on the same deal are being very competitive and pulling gunner on you (e.g., always available when partner emails 11pm, 2am or 4am and some occasional backstabbing on docs working together), do you play the same game? It’s tiring to seek for external validation but concerning to be compared against that attitude. Do you play short or long game?

Do Federal consulting firms value MBAs or specialized Masters degrees more? Interested in the earnings potential from MBA that is often touted, can’t help but think that it is less applicable in Fed.


Tip passed on from my sister, for anyone looking at BAH:

Some of the jobs are open to anywhere in the US and have the Colorado salary range listed, so that can give you a general idea of what those types of positions might pay ahead of time. There's substantial variability, of course, but at least it gives you *something* to measure against.
