Heading down to the Springfield area to spend Thanksgiving with my in-laws and my mother-in-law wants to get up around 3:00 a.m. to line up for Black Friday Sales... honestly, I don't think I love anyone enough to get up that early and spend hours in the cold dealing with a crowd of people... Happy Thanksgiving everyone

LOL! I did this with my aunt in back in 2009. It was okay at one store, but the other… 😳 Never again!

We don’t have to do this now that BF sales are available online. Click, click, type, click submit and wait for the orders to arrive. Done.

A reminder to those who are stressed about your billable hours that your value is more than your pure productivity. To those stressed about relationships, relationships are hard even for non-lawyers, but you are absolutely worthy of love. It is an important reminder for all of us that you are worthy and you are valuable. Keep fighting!

Hi need help !! Does Mphasis has office in indore?

There is this big bank where I'd love to work at, and after several interviews for various positions they end up promoting someone from within, even thou I understand it and think it’s good they promote their people, it left me feeling like I'm just being used to comply with the process.

Does your practice group make associates do mock motion arguments every week?! my practice group assigns random motions from old cases that i’ve never worked on for each junior associate to “argue” every week….

I feel like this is a huge waste of billable time, and also patronizing. I understand we need to learn, but why not do mock arguments with our current caseload?! this is abnormal? I think i landed in the wrong firm.

Note: this is non-billable work
