In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?
I work in a small team in sales at a bank and my boss doesn’t let me engage with any of our clients. Whenever they reach out, he insists he’ll deal with it and makes me do the admin in the background.I’ve been in this role for over 2 years and still don’t have any meaningful relationships. I have a meeting with him to discuss my career goals next week. How do I tell him that this is not what I want from my career? I’m worried he’ll think I’m after his clients if I say I want more responsibility

Is it common for insurance companies to disallow legal research or cap the hours you can spend doing legal research? Do you think that capping the hours for research can breed bad attorneys or even worse lead to malpractice claims? Wouldn’t the insurance company have some liability if that happened?
Partner community, it’s interesting to see so much opacity and variation around partner comp...for the benefit of the community at large, do you mind sharing;￼ (1) company, (2) Years as Partner / Equivalent, (3) cash comp (base + bonus) and (4) % Commission? Fully understand that “commission” is not the standard by any means but if you could express your comp beyond cash as % of revenue sold, I think we can cut through the noise a bit. TIA!
