Received an offer to join AWS as a SA last week. Would like to renegotiate for more stock vs base as they are firm on total compensation.
Outside of looking into a crystal ball, how should I be thinking about this? I'm thinking the stock will be relatively in a better place in a couple of years. Thoughts?

Feeling like a horrible father today. I always make sure that I’m loving and happy and excited when I’m with my son, mainly bc my father was an emotionally unavailable narcissist. But yesterday I lost my temper trying to get his movie going on his kindle tablet in the car and ended up smashing it to pieces.
If you do a secondment at another company, does BCG or the secondment firm pay your salary/where do you get pay stubs from?

Hi! Anyone at Mother or Droga under an O-1 here?
Is it strange that anyone at my firm (associates/partners) can look up where any lawyer is on billable time for the month? I’m a third year lateral, and my old firm didn’t do that. Is that normal? Feels invasive
Watching an AA confront the Senator who tried to limit her education as a child on the debate stage for the US presidency was powerful. It illustrated why passing the torch is needed.
For moms with more than 1 child: what did you do for on call care for your oldest when you went into labor with your second child? Our family is 2-3 hours away so we are trying to gather a list of closer options until family can arrive. We will ask some friends, but feel we need a longer list of options in case someone falls through or we can’t get in touch in the middle of the night.
A child that kicked ,punched and spit at staff and students.He wanted was to go to the principals office. In the principals office he played with Legos, cars and toys. Rewards for bad behavior.
I recently started working at a firm that does a lot of legal aid. In order to attract more private clients, they want us to go out and do speaking engagements and volunteer work (on our own time). Furthermore, they started asking us to consider doing per diem duty counsel work to bring up our receivables (aka- work as duty counsel and give them our pay). I was so appalled by this comment, I’m beyond livid. I became an associate so I didn’t have to go out and bring in business. (Cont.)
If a candidate went through the first offenders program and the charges were discharged without court adjudication of guilty and exonerated, will said charges show up in an employer fingerprinting background check?

Coalfire fish- how is it working in your compliance advisory practice? Should I make the switch? Have heard good and bad things.
I recently got interviewed at Salesforce for position of Lead Automation Solutions Engineer and they extended an offer. FYI,I did some initial negotiation and the package looks like this;
Total Pkg - 255K(Base - 136K,MBO - 9K,Commision - 49K,RSU - 60K/4year).
Is there any room for negotiation or did I already hit the roofline?
Appreciate the insights. Thanks.
Hi! Searching high and low for someone with GarageBand/musical expertise for a fun animated project. Please dm if that’s you!
So, if anyone have any refrence then please consider me on that
Thanks in advance
Started a new job last week and have not received much training other than HR videos on company policies. Been begging for some guidance from my new boss and coming up empty. Now he says he wants me to come up with my own 30, 60, 90 day goals for how I see my career progression going and that then he can review with me to help me achieve them…this is weird, right? I’d so much rather know what their expectations are for me? Also, any suggestions for goals would be much appreciated 😂🤦🏻♀️

How long after the person referring you submitted your resume did you get an email to apply from McKinsey?
Previously a senior manager in product/ analytics with 5+ reports and significant scope at a F50. Took a “manager - strategy” role with no reports in tech 6 months ago for better pay intending to progress back to people management but company downturn has made that unlikely. What should I use for my current title on resumes so it doesn’t look like I regressed or am too junior? I’ll be aiming for senior manager and director roles but don’t want the current “manager” title to hold me back.
Not sure if posted before, but this might help.

Firm continues to lose Legal Assistants and Paralegals without hiring any back resulting in overloading the employees that stay. I am feeling the burnout and most feel it is a toxic environment as most have negative attitudes. No extra pay or incentives have been given. Do you stay or do you leave?
So I had an interview this past week and I have an interview with another firm coming up next week. It’s still early and I don’t know if I’ll be in this situation but what happens if one firm moves faster than the other? Can you ask for a week to consider the offer or is that considered rude?
Any advice on transitioning out of law to anything else that pays around the same (180+)? I’m 3 years out of law school. 1.5 at a small law firm and 1.5 big law. M&A practice group. Too soon to go in house? I hate billable hours and have no life working 2100 hours a year.
I am a post bar graduate and currently seeking employment. I did not graduate from a top tier school, but I did graduate in the top third of my class as a dual-degree graduate. About a week ago, a partner at a big law firm connected with me on LinkedIn. He asked if I had a job lined up. I told him no and he responded that I should let him know if there is anything his firm or he can do to help me. We have a meeting with each other in two weeks. Is this a big law opportunity?
Repeat question, ish. What is the income and year out of law school for solo practice attorneys. Also, i would like to know the approx size of the county you work in and type of support staff.
Working remotely until next year! Who’s in? Lol
That moment when your "smart" plan to boost your hours this month by working the Labor Day weekend (thus turning down all the fun plans your friends made) becomes sitting on your hands & feeling dumb because all the partners are too busy to delegate anything. The worst kind of "off" day is one you planned to /wanted to work, but there's no billable work...

What do you do when you follow a partner’s instructions to the T, but they end up criticizing your work product and by extension your competency? Do you politely push back or just take it?
Take the money! You can always go to government later. Maybe negotiate WFH as needed so you can plan more weekends to visit family. I make 100k now and it’s not much. 165k will be a lot more comfortable.
I would stay with the government. You are not looking at costs outside of salary like benefits, vacation, paid holidays, stability and security. Money is AWESOME, but quality of life is more important.
I would also consider SS benefits when you het to retirement age, and look into the windfall exemption.
Are your loans federal or private? If federal, I’d stick with government for two more years to just get them forgiven under PSLF.
Another vote for waiting two years for forgiveness. There will be other good opportunities in two years and you won't have the loans hanging over your head. And congrats for making it 8 years into pslf!
PSLF combined with fact you never actually know what firm culture/lifestyle will be until you’re there cuts toward staying in government in my view
Agree. Stay put. Firm life is awful
What type of work is it? 1800 is honestly not easy to hit depending on what you're doing and especially if you have a family. I have young kids and am at a market paying firm with a sub 2000 billable requirement and it's not easy when you've got little ones.
Although if you are 2 years away from pslf you'd be nuts to jump now.
I vote stay. It sounds like we have similar personality types (work to live, not passionate ab being an attorney) and the work life balance from government is hard to replicate in a firm. It would be different if you were just out of school but being 2 years away from PSLF is the deal maker there.
Stay with the gov if you’re qualifying for loan forgiveness or whatever the program is.
And then leverage it into an in-house role. After 8+ years in gov you should be able to land a gig in house getting $200k+ and perhaps in your city. Or remote option to allow you to stay put.
Sounds like family is a big deal and 8 hours away is a huge change for you & your family if they’ve been used to the support system.
This is good advice.
Was 8.5 years a govt attorney got poached to a medium firm trying to play big law, 1800 billables, $150k, unlimited PTO
I got a total of 5 days off that year and worked 2 of them. Worked every “holiday” that we had “off” and most saturdays.
2 years later to the day I was back in govt
Saved my marriage. Saved my sanity. Money wasn’t worth it
That’s a killer gig right there. 1800 isn’t terrible and $165k base PLUS bonus? Come on. I’d take that in a heartbeat
OP is making over $100K with benefits + near family + getting loans paid off. Might also get a pension if they're there for a little while longer. I'm in biglaw and bill 1900 hours — I would take a good gov job any day of the week.
Stay for the PSLF and being close to family.
Will trade you in a heartbeat. Go gov!
I would stay in the government job. 1800 billable doesn’t sound like much, but it’s definitely occasional-nights-and-weekend hours. You can always go private after your loans are forgiven and your child is older!
Gov. Take the loan forgiveness. Also with that much experience, there may be other firms paying more.
Stay for the better WLB and being close to family. I formerly worked in L&E making slightly less (as a 4th year) with an 1800 billable requirement. It was actually incredibly difficult to hit those billables given the nature of L&E work. No associates in our group hit their hours, but we still worked evenings and weekends. If you have good WLB, that’s priceless.
$60k after taxes would be how much? Not sure if that’s worth it to be that far away from family. Sounds like you can get a similar offer and still be close to family. If family helps with the kid/you guys visit often it might not worth it. If they don’t actually visit often/help with the kid it is probably worth it
bear in mind that the *best* case scenario is billing about 80% of your hours worked and that's generally not sustainable over the long term.
We are basically the same person—8 years in, just now making 100k, in government. I have significantly more loan debt I’m waiting to get forgiven, but I would hold out for PSLF and then look. I’m sure there will be another similar opportunity in 2-3 years if you wish to take it. Your kids will also be older and presumably you’ll have more flexibility to work a bit more.
I would stay closer to family while your kids are younger. Esp if have good benefits good balance and like the govt work
L&E attorney, parent of 2 young kids here--I would trade you your lower-paying gov job for mine in a heartbeat. The billable hour is a monkey on my back at all times. Also moving away from family would be a nonstarter for me. My dad was a big part of my kids' lives and died suddenly last year--I am certain they would not have had as strong of a relationship with him had we lived apart.
I will never, NEVER go back to billing. Especially now that I have kids.
