Would you take a total WFH position for a 50k paycut? Putting me at around 100k TC. I can live on this, but is it really worth it? I'm leaning toward yes but not sure if this is crazy.
Lost a high performing SM to an industry job earlier this month. They were on track to becoming a Partner in 2022 but still decided to take an industry job which pays $400K. I tried to explain that they would make $600K as a first year partner and the income can go up to $1M in next 5-6 years. They still refused to stay in consulting because they think that becoming a Partner is just the beginning of the rat race and did not want to deal with sales/revenue targets for the next 20 years 😔😔

Has anyone successfully counter-offered an offer from Apple? If so, do you have any tips to share?
Thought I’d share as I’ve seen a number of people point out that their title on Fishbowl hasn’t been updated. If you made the update and it has been “pending” forever, y can email them and they update it pretty quickly after that. I waited two weeks, and when I emailed it was updated within 24 hours.
I have been in my current position for 5 yrs with minimal pay increases despite consistent praise from management for being one of the strongest in our department.

I recently found out that a new hire with no experience was brought in at a higher hourly rate than myself and several other female staff. Suggestions on steps to take with mgmt?

It seems like every firm advertises that they support diversity and inclusion. What does your firm actually do in terms of mentorship or other programs for diverse attorneys and do you find it actually beneficial? My firm reached out about a mentorship program where they were supposed to pair us with a partner mentor who is also person of color, but I still haven't heard back.

Design exercises 😵
It’s been a few years since I last interviewed, so I’m hoping for quick impressions. It’s still considered bad practice for companies to ask for take home design exercises (any length) that relate to the company’s actual products, right? Aka free work.
This is a senior+ role.

Vent: Met a toxic software engineer in another thread, who told me that designers and PMs have very little impact, that I was "overstating the importance of design" when I told them that I see Design and Engineering as collaborators to find the best solution for the end-users and customers, and that engineers should have final say because "they're higher on the totem pole" 🙃🙃🙃
I'm feeling so burnt out from this kind of attitude. I know it's not all engineers, but it's a lot. I'm tired 😩
