Hi folks. I'm in my sixth year of prosecution and have hit the glass ceiling. My next options are to run for office (ew), stay where I am and get state sanctioned raises for the rest of my career (ew), or jump ship. I'd like to get into plaintiff's litigation. Any tips would be much appreciated on 1.) switching expertise, 2.) fully remote or hybrid work (I love my house & don't want to move), 3.) where to find jobs openings. Thanks!

New third year litigation associate at a mid-size firm. My practice group is very small- me and two partners. They are extremely unresponsive and aren’t getting me nearly enough work to keep me busy. I know they have a ton of work because the firm sends emails showing everyone’s billables for the month, and they bill like crazy. Any advice on how to proceed, apart from just hounding both of them?
