I do L&E for a mid-size boutique and have been here my entire career (almost four years). I am unsure about making the move to a L&E specific job in big law. My hours are fine and my pay is okay (not great) but I don’t know if staying is the right move because I’m not sure if I’m selling myself short career wise long term. Any insight is appreciated.
I feel like I’ve forgotten how to dress myself since covid and my style is due for a bit of an upgrade since turning 30. Can anybody recommend brands to check out with casual and interesting clothes? My sense of style leans alternative and I work in a casual environment, but it’s probably time to lose the band t-shirts and doc martens at work. I’d like to retain my sense of personal style while looking my age and dressing a bit more professionally.
Received an offer from Chubb but curious as to what the work life balance and training is like for auditing. Any insight would be helpful!

Is it worth buying rentals in an area like Cleveland, Detroit, or Pittsburgh? My market on the east coast is too expensive, so I’ve had to invest in LCOL cities. I see a few properties in decent areas of those rust belt cities for under 100K. Accounting for mortgage, taxes, repairs, and management, I’d have a profit for ~850 a month. I know these cities are a bit rougher but the neighborhoods look decent based on my own due diligence. Is it worth it?

When a job posting says they want a brand designer to have familiarity with CSS and HTML, (but it's not a developer role at all) what do they expect you to know how to do? I've been a designer for 20+ years and understand what these are but have never had to do any of it.
What does this look like on the job? What tasks are they thinking of here?
