Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
I went out work for weeks with a broken foot. What reasons have impacted your practice for prolonged medical leave?

Hi ladies, looking for good birth control recommendations. I’m 26 and have never taken bc, but I’m so sick of the terrible cramps and heavy periods. My period knocks me on my ass each month. I’ve hesitated in taking birth control due to weight gain, mood swings etc. I know it’s different for each person, but any recs would be much appreciated.
I know we're all out for calling out asshole men. But what about abusive women? It makes me sick to see ladies stomping on ladies. Anyone else?

Emerging companies lawyers at Cooleys, Wilson, Fenwick, Gunderson, DLA, Latham and Orrick etc. how much weekend work do y’all do? Thinking of retooling from LevFin; sick of weekend commitment papers.
A partner sometimes cuts my time for review and study of medical records. He’s practiced for years and easily comprehends the language but sometimes I wonder if his expectations are reasonable. Is there a generally accepted amount of time one should spend reviewing records, like say x amount of pages per hour?
The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!
Is vacation time typically accrued through the year or you can take them before accrued?
Looking for a cool vacation spot within a 4/5hr drive from northern NJ. Flexible on hotel/airbnb etc, but ideally something on waterfront with views (beach/lake). Budget 400-500 per night. Think would prefer somewhere with not too many kids, although that’s not a dealbreaker. The missus is absolutely exhausted from work and keen to treat her for 3/4 days somewhere really nice, but haven’t found anywhere that’s quite hit the spot yet. Any recs?

How long did it take you to say you love your boyfriend? Maybe it’s the holiday season coming around but I’m finding myself getting close after only 4 months.
Thoughts on "unlimited PTO" policies? I'm guessing it could be good, or terrible, depending on who's in charge of approving leave requests...

Facebook recruiter MIA and have an interview set up for Monday. They scheduled my interview on Tuesday and have not heard from anyone on why to expect. So frustrating. How do I prep?
Mckinsey fishes: how common is it to be pulled for a specialty function BA position out of undergrad? Have an upcoming interview with McKinsey but not sure why one of the offices that expressed interest to interview me is considering me for a specialty function rather than general BA (of course, I indicated my interest in that practice). I thought that peoples resumes would be forwarded only to one office, but to my surprise (and delight) my second choice office also indicated interest to interv

Recently made the jump from mostly insurance defense work where my average billable rate was around $225/hr. Now the average billable rate is probably about $450/hr. Would I be able to get away with my insurance defense billing practices. I was averaging about 2800/yr before. Would that be cool in big law?

It blew my mind to learn about compulsory heterosexuality and gender performativity. It’s weird because even years later of being aware of these concepts, I find myself having to unlearn things that were buried deep inside me without even realizing. It’s hard but it’s worth it.
