12 weeks today. I was hoping I would be able to get DNA genetic testing today but my insurance still hasn’t approved the testing. I have up until Friday to see if it’s approved if not I can get another test but it’s a 90% detection rate ($300). The other test is 97% and out of pocket it’s about $3K. How would you guys proceed?... Just take the $300 test if the other isn’t approved in time?
Friends of fishbowl. Need advice on two very different offers I have: - ZS Consultant: 170k base, 20k signing. Will be joining Process Excellence and Transformation under the Business Operations Group - Deloitte Manager: 155k. Will be joining Strategy & Analytics and will focus on Financial Services Money aside, which is better for career growth, culture, experiences? Note that I already have 4 years of consulting experience at another big 4 so brand recognition is not important to me
I'm through the HR screening and have a senior associate round 1 interview with S& FS coming up and am looking for some pointers. Been at my current job for 3 years so am rusty with the interview process. Any case or behavioral tips? Thanks in advance.
County counsel experience - does anyone have insight into how working in a county counsel office might compare to a law firm? I know each one is probably different, but just wondering generally about work life balance, workload, etc. I’m looking to escape billable hours and pressure to find clients, and would like to work somewhere with real vacation days. Thanks!
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!

Does anyone have information about the remote casesmart counsel positions at Littler? Salary range/billable hours? I’m a 6th year L&E associate at a regional big law firm looking to make a move for more flexibility, work/life balance. Not interested in partnership. The CaseSmart counsel positions almost sound too good to be true so I feel like I must be missing something...
