When I was manager rank in Tax, I opted to switch from client service to CBS (tax tech group). I’ve switched roles in CBS a couple of times, each role has been an opportunity to learn. I love EY and think if you are considering leaving the client serving side, you might want to look at internal options as well as those outside the firm.

I asked my manager this morning that I wanted to change teams. Moving from sales to recruitment. I just started 2 months ago but I realized sales is not for me. My manager suggested that he’ll discuss this internally. However, I noticed they just posted for another role for sales right after my discussion with my manager. Can I be let go from company over this? Especially if the recruiting team decides not to have me on their team.

Corporate lawyers, do you use an iPad for work? In what ways has it proved most useful or valuable? Would you recommend getting one?

Considering getting an iPad Pro and apple pencil but trying to justify the $1200 sticker price. I markup docs and doing it with a computer mouse is really starting to strain my wrist (even with a wrist rest/vertical mouse) but I'm not sure that alone will be enough to warrant getting one. Are there another uses for the iPad?

2nd year. I was working a 2500 billable hour pace at my prior firm, left and went to a smaller firm 6 mo. ago. People are nicer, no longer expected to work literally 24/7, but I’m still miserable with the unpredictable workload. I had an injury earlier this year and wasn’t able to recover properly because I couldn’t take the time away for appts. I love the work I do, but I don’t think I can sustain the unpredictable schedule much longer. Is in house actually better? Other options?
