Curious if anyone else is or has been in the same boat. I started as an assistant at my firm prior to passing the bar.

Year end review you need to put it all out on the table. Between now and then prepare yourself for the conversation to go left. My 2 cents.

Agree. You’ve now have cred as an entertainment lawyer. Go and do. Noticed quite a few in-house jobs opening up.

Brand new to consulting and honestly don’t know a lot about hierarchy or politics so don’t come for me for asking this lol but why do people always make jokes about being partner and how life is so amazing in that position? What’s the deal?

Client wants to claim nanny expenses from 2020 on Sch H but did not withhold any of the payroll taxes or issue a W-2 (seems to have been a cash deal). What is the proper treatment on the client (employer) 1040? Claim the full amount as if they did withhold and somehow get that money from the nannies? Only claim employer half and assume the nannies are claiming on their 1040?

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?

I have a student with autism. He is mostly behavioral and at a lower learning level so he has to be in a separate classroom. We try to let him play with the students at recess or join in class parties. He has a sibling that attends school as well. When we were waiting in car line a group of girls talked about how they feel so bad for the sibling because of my student. Thankfully, neither student or sibling heard. But how do I respond to that as an adult? Especially, if they do hear?

Docker for Desktop is not free anymore. Thoughts? Will your project / firm replace it? And if you replace it, what are your plans?

In need of a gut check: I lateraled a year and a half ago to move to a location closer to my husband’s parents. I loved my old firm and was given good opportunities and was extremely cautious about lateraling, so I asked many questions during my interviews, including whether associates made their hours. I was assured they always did. Day 1 at the new job starts and it turns out I was hired with another associate for the same position. I can now go weeks at a time with just a few hours of work.
