I've only been in biglaw for a year, but have been practicing for seven years so far. I used to be a state regulator for this practice area and generally enjoy working at a private firm. A partner at a boutique firm that I'm friends with has called me every few months to check-in and see how I'm doing. During our last call he essentially offered a job after I get another year of experience in private practice. Five year track to partnership. No billable hours.

Hey 🐠, one of our portfolio companies is looking for a consultant wanting to go in-house to their strategy/biz ops team. Need logistics/supply chain background, 2-4 YoE, heavy data skill set, and most importantly, a people-centric attitude. Location is virtual but SF/Chicago strongly preferred. DM me if interested!

Does anyone else feel like their S/O is becoming more like a roommate? We’re in our early thirties and have lived together now for three years. Intimacy has dwindled in the last 5 months or so, we still get along great and enjoy our time together, but feels less romantic. My fear is that if this is what it feels like when we’re young, that it will be be like when we’re in our 40s and 50s? Has anyone else gone through this and how did it work out for you?

Wanted to share a recent experience with State Street.
HR called and asked for expectations and Current CTC and he took things ahead.
Started interview process and got selected.
New HR called and stated that their budget is not matching to my expctn And asked me to wait for few days. I waited holding on to another offer and these HRs stopped answering my calls and ignored.
I called from my frnd’s number and she picked up.
Wstd time and efrts. And I have no other opp to go for.
HRs at worst.😔

Think we'll see more than $500 extra in bonus for headcount being down so much and having to pick up the slack for the same medicore pay?

Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs. With that, I’ve bounced a lot with different industries and have done different roles for a year max. My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)
