Does anyone’s firm cover the cost of parking at the firm’s offices? The cost is particularly expensive for those who don’t go to the office each day (Audit, advisory) and thus must pay daily rates.
When is CRT and when do raises go into effect? New to the firm but just trying to understand the timeline before my first raise.
Does any one anticipate big law layoffs in the U.S. in the coming months? If so, which big law is most likely given their acts in 2008 and which level associate is more likely to let go first?
When someone gives you wires with no plug at the end, what is the name of the plug thing I need to buy at the end to twist the wires into the plug and put it in the wall? These hobbies are exhausting!
Quarantine, day: too many Boredom level: considering getting this couch for a waaaaay too ambitious restoration project
I'm an Accenture Strategy Consultant. Been on bench since end of November. First the holiday project slowdown and now Covid. Should I be worried about job security?
This is usually the time of year where there’s a lot of hiring. But there just seems to be a lot of layoffs. Is this because of the economy or is it the industry?
Going to Oman in November with wife and daughter for 4 days... - Any insights on the W hotel that just opened in Muscat? And comparison of W to Ritz Al Bustan? - Suggestions for an itinerary? Thanks

For the women in Big Four firms what is your level and what has made you stay? I’m an Associate and I’m interested in staying with my firm but rarely do I see a female leader and I worry that when I have children it’ll be hard to juggle it all.
Typical transaction tax senior 1 salary in a mid-size city (e.g., Charlotte, Atlanta, Denver)? Thank you in advance!!
We’re the marches for Women’s rights and Science last year (which were widely considered a success), useless, because no one looted any stores? I guess the message we sent wasn’t received because we weren’t radical enough...😔
What's the biggest obstacle that you face at work that you wish your fellow colleagues could understand but don't feel like you can adequately explain to them.
Actual question, hoping for explanation on both sides. I know that’s a long shot. Why are people allowed to group white people together (White people are the problem, White people are the worst). Meanwhile it wouldn’t be politically correct to group a minority in the same way (would be considered racist). For a lot of my conservative friends, this is why they are against BLM. Is it because the majority of issues are stereotypes and racism against POC, which is clearly the bigger issue? Thanks
Has anyone had to deal with a steep learning curve as a first year, mid/big law litigation associate? I’ve completed work for partners which they have approved and sent out to opposing counsel and counsel has at times come back with rude comments about the quality. I am about 6 months into the practice of law but it’s tough not to feel like I’m doing a terrible job dealing with these types of situations. Is this normal and does anyone has tips to deal to prevent discouragement/burnout?
