What healthcare consulting firms do employment verification? I was fired at my last firm in Sept and just took some time off working full time (did freelancing) Just now getting back into the job hunt
Who else is working the holiday tomorrow?!
How are any moms with babies and/ or immuno compromised relatives handling holiday parties and/or outings? I’m feeling a lot of pressure to attend my company holiday party as a team lead (and may be asked to speak) but I have a newborn and an immuno compromised mother in law who I’ll be celebrating Hannukah with two days later. I dont want flu, rsv or COVID! Can I decline or does it look bad?
How long does it usually take to hear back about an EY TAS interview? Interviewed last Monday night and sent the interviewer a thank you Tuesday. He said the talent team will be in touch shortly. I do know it was a holiday weekend though.
Just curious 🧐…. Anyone works for an organization that has added Juneteenth to their calendar or created a DEI event? Or have you requested that time off and spoke your to direct supervisor and discussed that the PTO request is due to Juneteenth? Or are you a meh ?
What is the pto, holiday, shutdown situation? Are there company-wide shutdowns and non-federal holidays? Seeing if there is any upside to the measly 14 day pto policy
Holiday gifts for my remote team? I want to spread a little cheer and love to my virtual team with a small gift. Any suggestions? There’s an awesome local chocolatier near me so i was thinking a nice box of premium chocolate and a note? I’d love to get more ideas. My team is all women and I’d say we have a good rapport, given our remote status
Anyone from Citrin Cooperman here? What's the benefit such as PTO, sick day, insurance and etc?
New to Seattle.
Does anyone know any good locations to host a holiday party for 20-25 people? All adults mostly.
I accepted another Job & have they are a drug-free workplace (fine with that). Employment is contingent upon successfully passing a pre-employment drug and alcohol test. Alcohol? WHAT, it’s a holiday weekend!! Can anyone help explain what this is? Can I don’t drink?
Can anyone share the Scotiabank employee benefits? How is the family insurance deductable? How is the yoy hikes and bonus? Can you take accumulate and take PTO's ? @scotiabank
Any advice for transitioning from ID to something in-house or even out of lawyering completely? The billable hours and “unlimited PTO” (aka no real time off) are killing me and the billable mentality is creeping into my personal life (every day thoughts like “If I can finish the grocery shopping in .8, then I have an extra .2 to walk the dog.”) I just don’t feel the billable life is the best choice for my mental health or personal life (newlywed). But no idea how to start making the transition…
🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year?
Drop your plans or ideas below! 👇
Anybody on here “buy” extra vacation? Debating it myself... Would like to buy three months to invest time in starting my own company. 😉
Unlimited vacation is kind of a Jedi mind trick. You don't know what's acceptable, so you go the shorter route.
Watching some of these car holiday commercials and was thinking how many people surprise their spouses with a new car. Have you done so before and do you have a separate budget you pay it from?
Hey guys, do you have a knack for planning stuff. You may have a hidden gift for Project/Program Management. The skill sets needed are similar to planning a move or a vacation. Those include pre-planning activities, budgeting, collaboration, negotiating etc.
Anyone see a great holiday spot yet?
Almost everyone is going through something or the other in their personal/professional life.
Just a gentle reminder:
1. Be easy and kind on yourself
2. Remember to take time off for yourself 😉

May I know if any one has experienced it recently of this?
Spouse has a traditional IRA with about $50k in it. Rolled over from her 401k after she stopped working. With the recent crash, I don’t think it has a lot of gains. Would you just roll the whole thing over into a Roth IRA now?
How do you explain to your boss that you need to head back home right after landing at client site due to a spouse experiencing a chemical pregnancy? Would prefer to keep the fertility struggles private and want to convey the importance of being home despite it being a deliverable readout week that I was supposed to drive.
Anyone have any recommendations for “high” desk chairs that are also comfortable? I’m having nerve issues in my leg and I need my legs to mostly “hang” off and be more straight (instead of bent at the knee). Already have a standing desk which is great — just need something better so I can sit without being in pain

Anyone made a jump to a different practice group? I’m about to enter my fifth year in bankruptcy and don’t think this is for me. I’ve always wanted to practice corporate law, but chose to chase the money out of law school and wound up feeling stuck in something I do not enjoy. For context, I work at an AmLaw 200 firm, was valedictorian of my class and am trying to jump into a remote position with an AmLaw 100, but could use some guidance.
I checked my direct deposit and noticed I was given a significant raise. I have only been at the firm for 2 months and no one has talked to me about a raise. I triple checked it wasn’t a math error on my end. Is it possible I got a raise so quickly into a new job? Probably not, right? What should I do?
During Covid I was laid off, I took a job in compliance/ legal in house. However, I really am having trouble stomaching the pay cut. Anyway to get back to law firms?
I’m an associate at a boutique law firm working on complex litigation and regulatory matters. I’ve worked at the same firm as a summer associate and the last three years directly after graduation. I’m worried that I’m not getting enough “practical” experience. I haven’t taken a deposition, only attended two oral arguments, and tend to write parts of briefs or motions but never in their entirety. (Continued in comments)
Is there any attorney job that exists where I can be fully remote and have 0 interaction with people or do I just need to leave this profession
Years after taking and passing the NY bar, I’m sitting for the FL bar exam in Feb. Doing BarBri again (which, annoyingly, I have to pay for), but I also need to take MPRE again as I took it a long time ago. What prep courses are people taking these days? I know it’s a security blanket, but I want to do it to make myself feel better, so I wanted to know which courses for MPRE people are taking these days.
Final round interview on phone- what do you make of it? I expected a zoom call. Any tips to prepare and make a good impression?
Hate hate hate when a firm markets various areas of practice, brings me in for an interview from a vague Jon posting, then says it’s insurance defense at the interview.
Hi, everyone. Wondering if you can help me?… The Partner at my firm is asking me for a list of Plaintiff law firm conferences. I used to work for the Defense, so I know about all of those conferences but I’m really stumped as to how to find the Plaintiff side conferences. We mainly do class action and mass tort. Any advice for me as to how to find them? Know of any? Thank you so much!
This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?
