The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Had a very early call with the client and foreign lawyers this morning. One of the other country lawyers couldn’t use my telecon number, so I had to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting. In pajamas, no makeup. Firm’s Zoom has no option for the organizer to start the meeting with their camera off for some reason. Client and other lawyers are all female, and they all turned their cameras on in solidarity. I love the supportive women I have the pleasure to work with. Any other Zoom WFH war stories?
What's severance at PDub? Like a month per year?
Monthly Retainer: has anyone ever converted themselves from project fee to a retainer for a client? pros.. cons? I want to make sure it’s a win-win situation. When should I bring it up? I think Im being phased out due to high project fees.. so a retainer seems like the right move.
Got laid off a months ago and while I’m freelancing at the moment and making great $, I’m still upset about it. I really don’t think I deserved to be let go and my team would 100 percent agree. Cont

Hi Folks, Did you hear about PMTG- project management talent group? Is it some new emerging offering. You have any idea about it and your thoughts regards to be a part of it?
I don't even wash my face if I am working from home. One meal for the day, not enough water, I guess working at client somehow made my life regular.
How do you guys think about performance reviews? Try to get the best score you possibly can? Scrape by with doing the minimum while solving for sustainable hours, and then being OK with just an average rating / promotion timeline? Focus on lots of self-promotion? I know I could be better at this job if I put more time and effort into it - but is it worth it? The things I’m getting reviewed on seem rather nitpicky and don’t impact team efficiency or client outcomes so I’m struggling to care.
Is anyone here constantly worried about getting laid off? I didn’t get moved to my next level (SA1 > SA2 > SA3 before manager) last review cycle (I was 6 months in the firm). Now I’m always constantly worried I’m going to get laid off. Overall get along w people at my level up to manager, but cannot get along with most partners and some directors. I’ve had good reviews from the former, and mixed reviews from the latter. Wondering if this is anxiety or intuition.
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any.

What’s it like at McCann NY? The culture, the work, the work/life balance (if there is one)?
This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.
