How does everybody handle clients that do not respect you and your judgment as an attorney? I am nearing the end of my first year as an associate, and I know I have SO much to learn still, but I work very closely with a partner mentor on everything I do to be sure I am not making rookie mistakes. I have a client that is demanding and indecisive (difficult combo) and keeps going back to the attorney that declined to take on her case and referred her to my firm. They are not communicating...

Hi! I work at a boutique consulting firm in NY/LA who is looking to hire SC/M with experience in Salesforce/Rights/DMSC/Change Management/SDLC. Please dm me your LinkedIn if interested or if you have questions!
First day of 30mg vyvanse today. Had a rush of energy and hyperfocus (too much so) about 2-4 hours in, but had a complete crash 5hrs after taking the pill (just a wave of fatigue, felt very good after a quick 15min nap actually) and not sure if it had any effect after. Is this normal? Should I stick it out for a few days or is this a big sign that I’m not on the right meds/dose? Nervous to keep trialling this during the workday since a midday crash is not ideal. Appreciate any advice!
I’m going through a really tough time with sebhorreic dermatitis. I just recently got diagnosed with proper medical treatment but for 2 months and multiple derm visits have been wondering what was wrong with me.
I didn’t know how to even explain that I wasn’t even sure of what I was going through and dermatologists kept telling me I was normal and I thought I was going crazy with a inflamed scalp and it affected my performance at work a lot
Any suggestions on where to take an online 3 credit Accounting course to fulfill educational requirements? I've reached the required 150 during undergrad but only got 27/30 Accounting credits 😔 it can literally be any course as long as I haven't taken it before and it has to be from an accredited school.
Do y’all think this is an independence issues? I worked in programmatic media from January-June 2019. We worked a lot with vendors and had meetings with Telaria. Don’t think we ended up using them but not sure. Now they are part of Magnite and independence says I can’t have done work for them in two years if I want the stock. Is this an issue?

I have a partner at my firm who wants me to join a new project with them. It’s with the same client that I’m currently staffed to, but this partner oversees a different portfolio of work. I’m supposed to be on my current project through EOY, but I want to go to this new project. Will I burn bridges with my current partner/project team asking to roll off?
In the hiring process for a boutique consulting firm. Before the interview, they require a short writing exercise. Selected candidates will have a first round interview followed by a project exercise and then a final interview. Just curious to know if this is standard for boutiques and if the salary is worth the effort lol.

A client I am being put on a project for will require a drug test. I sometimes use marijuana (which is legal in my state), a little worried that I might fail a potential drug test, which have been temporarily suspended by the client but will return when their offices are re-opened. As part of onboarding you have to sign a document saying you will voluntarily comply with this random drug test with 1 day notice. Do I tell the partner I don’t want to sign the doc or give up weed for a project.
