I just started at a house counsel firm for an insurance company and the WLB has been unreal. People work like 9-5:30 (at the latest) and not a single person bothered me while I was on vacation last week.

Yes, I am almost 2 months in and it is amazing. Haven’t worked a single weekend. Latest night was 7:30 and that was an outlier. Most days are 9-530.

It depends on if I have to travel to court in the morning, but if I don’t, then it’s usually 9:30-4:30. Also depends if I’m on trial etc

Looking for a new mentor. Background- I previously practiced environmental law for some time and transitioned to health care about 4 years ago. Recently picked up pharmacy (in-house).

Was upfront about not knowing pharmacy one bit, but expressed my willingness to learn. Fast forward a year later- still struggling with Pharmacy knowledge. Looking for resources.. cont’d below

I got promoted to senior and my raise took me to $69.5k. Am I underpaid? Chattanooga, TN area. To add further context, a brand new staff with no experience just started at $65k after receiving a $5k “inflation bump” right before she started. Seems a little insane to me that I’m only getting $4.5k more despite having 2 more years of experience.

Advice please - I want to give notice the day after I get my bonus. 25 ish lawyer firm. They taught me everything I know, close-knit culture, etc. A boutique wants me to start at the new year, so two weeks notice falls right after bonuses are paid. Worried the partners will think I’m taking advantage of them, even though it’s a bonus for work I’ve already done, and the timeline is coincidence. I don’t want to burn the bridge - new firm and old firm have cases together. Is this bad optics? WWYD?
