Curious if anyone else is or has been in the same boat. I started as an assistant at an entertainment law firm prior to passing the bar. Upon passing, the partner told me they would hire an assistant for me since I now became an associate. That was 1.5 years ago and I am still in the limbo of juggling my own workload + doing assistant roles for my supervisors. I have also had no increase in pay, which is a huge deal for me. Is this normal in the entertainment world? Any suggestions?

This is not normal in any world. I'd start looking for a new job ASAP.

I’m gonna be honest. What happened in Las Vegas has gotten to me, far more than other incidents like this (except for Sandy Hook). I haven’t been able to sleep, I’m more paranoid than usual. It’s logical to know where exits are around you, and now I have to look at where I can hide if there’s an active shooter situation? I won’t stop living my life and doing things I enjoy, but it’s so unfair and so devastating that this keeps happening and nothing changes 😞

Got promoted to C this year but still anticipate being underpaid. My director pretty much confirmed that given market conditions. I want to switch jobs to be paid fairly faster. Given I know my value compared to my peers, do I wait until September when promotions go into effect and I’m actually a C to start applying to jobs? I also won’t know my new salary until end of August. Can I negotiate a salary not based on current pay but what I should be at compared to my peers?
