Hi All, has anyone received unemployment benefits after being furloughed in NYC? How long did it take to get benefits check/deposit?
Got an offer from a really small consulting firm that offers no health insurance or 401k match. Otherwise the firm seems like a great fit and something I’d love to be a part of. What are some things I should consider with the lack of benefits? I’m thinking I should negotiate a higher offer to make up for it? Thoughts?
I’m putting together some content about the ways female lawyers experience sexism and gender bias in their profession. I want to incorporate real stories from anonymous women so I’d love to hear about your experiences with this issue and/or sexist statements you’ve heard in your practice and from whom (ie male partner, female colleague, female assistant, male judge, male opposing attorney, etc). It’s all anonymous so don’t include names of people, companies, firms, etc. Just want real examples
What’s your recommendation if my new 401k does not accept pension rollover? I think the only 2 roll over options left are traditional/Roth IRA, right? If I first roll over the pension to traditional IRA, and then immediately roll over the traditional IRA to my new 401k, will I still trigger the pro rata rule when I do backdoor Roth in the future? I have never contributed to a traditional IRA or done backdoor Roth so far.

🐠- Recently separated from the firm. What are my options with regards to keeping/transferring my existing 401K? Don’t have the next gig lined up. Appreciate the guidance.
Having my annual review this week - I don’t expect any negative reviews based on informal feedback. I also just found out I’m pregnant. I’m super nervous because a bunch of my friends have miscarried and I’m afraid the same thing will happen to me. How do I tactfully explain to the partners i need to take it easy the next few months? I’ve overbilled by over 200 hours every year so I’m worried they’re going to expect the same this year.
