How do you feel about your firm's CEO?
Joined an early stage finance and accounting tech company. We are growing rapidly but have absolutely failed to bring on the people to handle the growth. Myself and my team are Feeling completely overrun. We have communicated the need for help but I think our company is not paying up to attract talent. How should I think about this issue? I have gone out of my way to highlight the issues in the process and propose solutions but we don’t have resources to implement. (Not still at pwc, old info)

Seeing a trend on LinkedIn of recruiters claiming to be victims of "unwarranted" public shaming by random connections. Earned criticism? Feels odd to see agency recruiters play the victim.
When submitting resignation do you pro rate the number of holiday days you would have accrued? I have leave booked around time of resignation (of which 5 days is PY roll over) so wondering if I can add an additional 2 days leave to the date from which I'm counting back 30 days from ie 20 days normal notice 5 days PTO (starts Thursday) puts me 27 days post submitting notice (wed). Could I add 27/365x 25 day holiday allowance = 2 extra days of leave I can add.

If I expressed clear willingness to be knocked way back on the associate pay scale (to 1st or 2nd year), would a firm (not my current one) be willing to take a 7th year litigator into a different, non-litigation practice area?
Almost 3rd year struggling to get work from practice group despite reaching out multiple times. I’ve been assured that it isn’t performance related and my mid year review was very positive. I know most partners are very busy, but I still barely get work from them. If it weren’t for another practice group I’d be in deep trouble.
Has anyone heard about partners giving positive feedback but secretly icing out an associate? That makes no sense but I don’t know what else to think.

How formal does everyone keep internal emails? I would like to drop all of the formalities (similar to what you see in quick messaging systems like Slack or Skype). There is a general sense of formality in most of the emails exchanged, but I'm fine with trying to break this trend if everyone else is doing it.

Does anyone have insight into why a firm would NOT have made the bonus announcement by now? It’s never been this late before, and our fiscal year ended months ago, so it’s not like they’re waiting on financial info. Starting to get nervous and I’m curious if there is an actual justification for pushing it later

In the torrent of emails we get on a daily basis, what do you do to make sure you capture and track all the actions items/deliverables? I hate things falling through the cracks and want to hear some best practices from those of us with crazy amounts of email coming through.
