In-house counsel - would you prefer working at a big company specializing in a field of law, eg, privacy, IP, employment, etc, or a small company being a general counsel? Assume the small company has a higher risk of going under compared to the big company, but higher reward (via stock), and the large company pays a healthier salary.

What is a good salary range for a senior manager in localization at a game co in Los Angeles?
Dear analysts, if you have a problem, please come with a solution. Solutions show that you're forward thinking, anything else makes me think you want me to hold your hand.

Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.
I just got a second $500 as a child tax credit. This is a credit against my child tax deduction for 2021, right? Weird that people like us are getting checks from the gov, but I guess its faster/easier than means testing.
If you had financial sponsorship from the firm and acceptance into 2 of the top 5 schools would you do an emba (FYI there would be no relief on sales targets / practice p&ls or Billability )?
I am being recruited by McKinsey. I am just starting the process so who knows what will happen. In the summer I had an offer from EY, which was good, but I actually felt like my role at ACN was just too good to leave. However Mck seems to focus on really interesting problems to solve. My questions to other partners out there - if you left another firm to go to Mck, why? If you considered an offer but decided to stay where you are, why? Don’t want to waste people’s time if I’m better off at ACN
What happens to the buy-in once a Partner leaves? I have an equity partner position offer from a Big4 company and I need to buy-in, which is equivalent to Y1 target comp. The buy-in is in the form of a bank loan which the company takes out in my name and they cover all interest payments. I am curious as to what happens when I eventually exit the partnership. Will I get the buy- in amount back as the loan is against my name?

So here's a random one. I'm considering the Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 (not the larger Fold). Anybody already make that leap? If so, what do you think so far? I'm nervous about the battery life, which is reported to be quite limited.

Not trying to convince otherwise but I would ask about a LOA / Sabbatical for 6 months as first step TBH.
I would agree. I never thought I could do that but taking some time off helped me a lot
OP - I understand what you’re saying and am struggling with this myself. Although I’ve worked hard over the years, the new operating model has resulted in some in-group/out- group challenges and barriers that I have yet to overcome. Eventually one gets tired of the fight.
The overhead is exhausting. One day I’d like to get back to full-time serving clients & building teams + leaders
