All projects should have at least one off-site day for staff to settle grievances by slapping the crap out of each other, followed by some restorative activity like mini golf + team dinner.

And you realize you are the Nth staff/senior on the project because they've rolled off or quit 👀

I am going into my second year practicing law. I am at a small litigation firm (I would prefer not to give my location but will say that I am not in a big market). I am curious as to what the norm is re: billable hours. My firm only gives credit for hours actually billed to the client. This seems wrong? If a partner cuts my time… or the client refuses to may for some of my time (even if I DID THE WORK)… that time doesn’t count towards my total billable hours.

Transitioned into consulting post-MBA (1.5 years ago) and generally enjoyed the experience. Since I joined my comp has gone up ~13% and I’ve liked my project teams but in my most recent review talk my partner told me he thought I was ready to be promoted and had advocated for me but there was an HR rule against it and I was on-track to be promoted in 6 months. Since then I’ve learned that one of my classmates (started 2-3 months before me due to COVID) was promoted last cycle.

Need advice: have been interviewing for a strat role. Did a case in late December. Someone left the team in new year so they have to reevaluate their org structure.

Are they going to hire me or not?

I have a union position as a therapist. My management kept telling me "we're working on it" when I asked about a raise since getting my LPC. Our union contract does not renew until 7/1 of next year. I brought this to my supervisors attention and now the director emails me to say basically "yes, we are working on a raise but nothing can happen until 7/1/2022". Has anyone else had this experience? Of management being vague and just stringing people along?

So I left my current job for a new position that pays 22k more and is more development than admin work. I was supposed to start on 11/15 and it is now pushed back to 11/30 due to the background check still not being done yet. So I spoke to the recruiter yesterday and she said they can offer a signing bonus of $1,000 and I told her I have to think about it because the 2 weeks of pay I’m out is almost $4,000. Like I quit my job for this. I think they can do better than $1,000 am I wrong?
