Has anyone else dealt with this situation? My company has no CLO or GC. However, my company runs all in house legal opinions through its CCO, a non attorney. The CCO and I have had disagreements on points of law on several occasions, but regulatory actions have backed up my opinions. Regardless, the company values the layman's point of view more than mine. I do not feel appreciated by this company in my current role.

i had lunch with tier 1 tech company GC before taking my first in-house role as head of legal (which reported to the CFO). they had two key pieces of advice: (1) work out every day, in the morning, or you won't have time and (2) never report to anyone other than the CEO. this is why .

I have had a similar experience working with compliance within a company. Employees at non-legal companies tend to revere C-level executives and take their position as the final authority. Usually this is the right call, but for legal, it may not be. Most employees at a non-law company do not have experience working with lawyers and may not even know the difference between compliance and legal. In my company, compliance works more closely with employees and they often go to compliance for legal questions even though no one in compliance is a lawyer.

Yep, it’s just me over here answering to the CFO. Luckily he defers to my legal opinion. Our company (typical) worships sales though, that is the only time my opinion can be mowed over is by the sales executive.

What is a tier 1 tech company? Is that now a thing?

Seeing a lot of people ask if they need to bump their GMAT score up from like 720 to 760 - NO! It is one part of the application (tick box IMO once you hit 700). Further study is an opportunity cost of writing great essays. Work out your unique selling points with lots of great examples. Do the essays then when you think it’s perfect, leave for 2-3 weeks and reread like you don’t know you - guarantee you’ll redo. Screenshot of areas I typically need to explore (school gives guidance).
