The only negative I have with it (and they may have changed it since I bought mine 4 years ago) is you have to hold the “on” trigger the entire time you vacuum. Not an issue if it’s a quick clean up but if it’s a longer clean (e.g. entire kitchen and hall before people come over) my hand starts to cramp. But a cordless vac is a must have, especially if you have kids or cook a lot. I bought my mom the Shark cordless as I thought it would be easier for her with the power on switch and I liked that as well (plus cheaper). Dyson has some nice attachments you can buy, I don’t know about Shark - what they have. Hope this helps! The power thing was something I never even considered thinking about.

Love it!!! Agree on holding down the trigger but small price to pay!

100% worth it! We have a white dog on dark hardwood floors. I use mine two to three times a day for quick clean up!

I got the v11 because we have 3 dogs. I love it. Only regret is not buying it earlier. Holds a decent charge and just so easy to use

I have not tried the v10 but when I read reviews it seemed like the 11 was worth the incremental cost because of the dogs

My supervising partner keeps encouraging me to take vacation time. Everyone else in my group has taken several vacations recently. However, my hours hit rock bottom for several months at the beginning of Covid. It is impossible for me to reach my annual target this year. I have the ability to bill 50+ hours over my monthly target now. I feel like higher up management may disagree with my boss’s outlook, but I am burning out. Thoughts?

3rd year V20 and don’t really have any one partner I’m close with at the firm. I’ve worked for many different people but wouldn’t say I repeatedly work with the same partners (and regardless there is usually a senior associate I report to more than the partner). People know me, but my no means are we “close”. This feels like a major flaw of large practice groups in BigLaw (Corporate), where juniors remain largely anonymous. Tips to fix this / improve relations (especially during remote working)?

For all those 2015+ grads who went into litigation...have you tried a jury trial? Not talking about having very little to do with the file and then sitting at counsel table but more like seeing a file from the start and going all the way to trial. It just seems like everything settles nowadays. I wanted to go to trial for several cases but often find the client would rather settle.
