Guys, I hope you all are doing well.
Is it considered unprofessional to send an email instead of a formal letter? Specifically, my firm has been retained by a title insurance company to obtain an easement for an insured property. Our first step is to reach out to the neighbor to ask them to grant the easement directly. The neighbor is a realtor and I easily found his email address online - I went to draft an email to him but found myself wondering if it’s unprofessional to send an email rather than formal letter. Thoughts?

My gf (who lives with me) quit her job due to mental health issues a couple of months back.
I’ve been super supportive throughout. She’s a winner and a super talented person but she is lacking confidence as she messed up a couple of interviews. She has lost confidence to an extent that she’s blocking me out and isn’t willing to accept any help.
I’m starting to stress out (major) as this is affecting our relationship badly.
PS: She’s looking for Talent Engagement, customer success roles.

How many active channels are on your slack? I have around 50 separated by internal topics, discussions of particular account or specific project. I just had a discussion with someone who thinks it's too much and needs to be optimized more. I kind of like that I have a separate channel for separate topic. What do you think?

What does client facing YES means?
I can’t tell if I’m being too sensitive or my seniors are really passive aggressive towards me all the time. Like I can’t lash out at micro-aggression, what am I supposed to say? Treat me the same way as you treat the other staff? My working environment has taken a toll on my mental health and my desire to stay in audit. And idk if it’s my fault or I’m just in a really toxic environment. I haven’t really been on other teams.

I’ve been working in consulting for about a year and am thinking of getting my masters now. Would an Masters or an MBA be more beneficial to me in my future if I want to continue consulting after? Or I guess my question is, is one year of work experience too little to start an MBA program?
How many of you have an MBA or Master’s Degree of some kind? My company has a ton of staff with an MBA so I wonder how essential it is? I would like to avoid getting one (can’t justify the insane cost and my company doesn’t offer tuition assistance). Are there other certificates that can be helpful is gaining more business acumen related skills?
Thinking about making the move from large regional firm to Big4 (very much interested in Deloitte, as they appear to invest considerably more into recruitment and retention of minorities than competitors)…. Is this true or am I looking through rose-colored glasses? Also, I’m looking for a more interesting client portfolio… but reluctant to give up the work life balance I’ve recently been able to achieve. Anyone have insight on charge-hour expectations and WLB for experienced mgrs at Big4?
Juniors (not a reproach but well meant advice): Learn the « language » of the matters and practice areas you are working on, eg if a client matter has a nickname learn the real name and the nickname; if the client refers to something as something else learn that as well. It will help you communicate with both the client and senior lawyers.

Was I in the wrong here? Had a contractor do some work and got a verbal quote for $2500. The bill ended up at $6000. Contractor argued the quote was for materials only, but that wasn’t said (he insisted the quote was $2500 + unspecified cost of labor and equipment). Since nothing was in writing (won’t make that mistake again) we settled on $3500.
Is it normal for a contractor to give open ended quotes like that where labor is an unknown? When I get a quote I expect it’s for the entire job.
