Do other associates here have an interior office? Dreading going back in because lack of natural light is a serious mood killer….

I had one for a while and finally mustered the confidence to ask my assistant what the plan for the empty associate-sized exterior office was. The office was mine by the end of the day. If there’s an office with windows and your assistant has your back, shoot your shot!!

I went in-house during COVID and lost my beautiful associate office/window 😭. I will honestly probably get a sun lamp for the winter. I had an interior office the first year of practice, and moving to a nice office with a window made such a difference. I also got rid of fluorescent lights (headaches) in my associate office, and I don’t think I can do that easily in my new office. Dreading it. I may have to ask for an accommodation….

I’m 100% willing to pay for it myself!!

i sort of have a window, in that my office has a window to the hallway, and the partner across the hall has a window, which i can sort of see out of, at certain times of day, if she’s working from home….

I do, and it’s hard. I had the choice of sharing a larger office with another associate, or getting my own office that’s smaller and doesn’t have any windows. I chose having my own office but it gets so dark and dreary. It makes me extra enjoy meetings in the other offices just because I bask in the sunlight!

Mentally exhausted in this career. Don’t always mind the hours but don’t find it fulfilling. I think tech is more interesting and operational. Offered an analyst role at 140k base/bonus (not including equity but not public so not factoring that in). It’s not my ideal company because it doesn’t seem like growth is exponential but people seem nice and role seems better than consulting - gotta start somewhere? Only done a few interviews so far though. Is it better to wait? Have <2 YOE.
