Not in big law. I never saw a partner and thought to myself, “I aspire to have your life.” My feelings were actually the exact opposite.

If only these poor overworked partners weren’t forced to do this to pay off their loans. The horror!

Depends on the firm. At the mid-size one I worked at, I was stuck all night writing a motion and the partner left at 5 to go mow his lawn. LOL

It’s taking everything in my power not to quit my job right now with nothing lined up. Trying to hang on while I line up interviews for new positions so I don’t have a gap in my employment/ 6 more weeks for my YE bonus. In a vicious cycle of my director being hostile to me > being stressed and making dumb mistakes > him being pissed that I’m making mistakes. Constantly abusing my adderall script, often taking 2x what I’m prescribed. Too ashamed to take a LOA.

For McKinsey (or MBB generally though I applied to McK), do cover letters matter? Or more specifically, are you dinged if you don't have one? I see responses saying they aren't read. But when I applied I didn't even have a blank PDF labeled cover letter attached so idk if I'm missing some checkbox.

Need advice: baby is 8 months. We started her in daycare at 6 months. Liked the daycare but concerned because not all caregivers were vaccinated. Liked daycare overall because we wanted to not manage anyone, socialization, etc. We got more nervous with Covid as daycare did not mandate after FDA approval and other mandates came out. We found a nanny share and informed the daycare we are pulling her out - the director calls me and says the remaining teachers have received the 1st dose. Cont.

I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
