Yes and yes. Probably not worth the opportunity cost $$ could've made but some times you just need a life hiatus


Nope. And for the cost reasons Lazard already mentioned. Can't justify it for myself.

Top 10 baby!

Hi Fishes, I wanted your help to understand how I am doing in my career and how I can potentially improve my career as well as CTC in the coming future.

Here's a break down of my experience
Total: 2 yrs 2 months

1st org, service based startup (7 months): Android dev + Jsp Servlet + also had to maintain a PHP project.

2nd org, product based (1yr 7 mths): Java Spring Boot, Apache Spark, GRPC, kubernetes and Bash.

Currently my CTC is 5.5
Am I underpaid? If so, how can I improve my CTC?

I see a ton of super chic women wearing low cut white sneakers over weekends with dresses. I would love to grab a pair myself. Which ones do you recommend? And are they comfy?


Only way to stop racism/bigotry is to teach next generation kids in school/home on our shameful racism history (massacre of native americans, slavery, ali list goes on).
We cannot change anything unless we accept it.
In germany, they overcome nazi history by teaching in schools unlike in US as most of us pretend as it never happened.


Anyone successfully switched from L1 to H1B (and changed jobs within the US)?


It’s that time of year for firms to consider attorney promotions. How has covid affected that? If someone’s hours or origination credit is lower, do you give some leeway and still consider them for promotion? Or is it “business is business” & you apply the same rules as in normal years? I’m curious how other firms are handling.
