Big 4 Gossip

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.

I’d just try to find a garage with a fairly low daily rate that is a little bit further walk. A lot of garages will have lower early bird daily rates like $8 if in before 8:30 vs $20 after. I think they don’t cover it because so many people are not in the office enough.

Speak with your manager, in my firm we reasoned with them and said that charging parking would be less them taking a taxi home at night. Ultimately lowering the WIP. Business case it lol

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?

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.

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?
