There's an extension I just added that I love for giving feedback on writing pieces. It is called Talk&Comment. This is a total game changer for me because and I don't have to sit there and type in the same old same old… "make sure you're checking your spelling, I need some more support for your argument", so on and so on. It just makes it a lot more personal because I'm speaking to them individually and it is a lot faster , which is what I'm really looking for! I am sure there are others.

Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
