Was laid off and recently received an offer from a comparable consulting firm, but they want to bring me in at a level lower than what I was at before.

Just sad bc we’ve been looking for two years and this was the perfect place.

I’m a first-year associate in big law, and I often have friends and family members reach out to me for assistance or referrals on tasks that I personally have no expertise (e.g. drafting wills, business/entity formation).
