I’ve considered it a few times Long story short, the general consensus is that it’s not worth to go from a full time role to a contract role unless there is a SIGNIFICANT upside in compensation. I make ~130k and wouldn’t consider being a contractor for less than 170-190k Contractors are treated even worse than consultants

They plan to convert me to full time at 4 months in JPMC. I’m not sure if I should trust consulting firms though.

I know someone who was supposed to be converted “within 6 months”, they’re coming up on 2 years Only take it if the current situation is good, you’d be better trying to go straight to JPM for a job if that’s the end goal

I have a lot of goodwill built up at my firm and I work hard, but I am so incredibly burnt out after the last two years.

Have the option to transfer to Canada (Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal) and keep my US salary or to London at a 10% paycut.

So my main question is: will living on 65K in London be comfortable enough that I just do it for the experience? Currently in NYC at 3 yoe and will go back to the US after 1 year for MBA. Please advise!

Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
