Audit manager here checking in how is everyone doing? I feel like there is such high expectation from everyone these days. Client services 40/45/55 hours and all these nonsensical cluster activities, trainings and cohorts on the top of that. I don’t think I can handle this anymore. When I speak up about it, I am told my leadership that everyone is doing it, so you have to do it to keep up with the competition. I seriously just don’t want to give more than 40 hours of my time to this firm.

Friday kiss and tell-- curious if any 🐠 in here have ever had a steamy affair or office hook up either as a lawyer or in prior career. How did it go down? Did anyone find out? Looking for the juicy stuff 👄
Question about resumes - at what point, if ever, is it okay for your resume to be longer than one page? I recently updated my resume and it’s now about a page and a quarter. There’s nothing I want to cut, though I could cut some stuff if appropriate. For context, I’ve been in the workforce for about 15 years. Thanks all!
Mamas who took a maternity leave…How did you do it? Did you wait until you went into labor or did you schedule a hard date to start your leave? What did you do before you left to prepare your team for your leave? Trying to finish out the last few weeks before my leave starts and I’m a planner and a worrier (if you couldn’t tell 😂)
Any advice for someone looking to get into data privacy law? Should you aim to start with roles in the private sector or government; courses; connections; etc? All suggestions are welcome! I have some experience, but not a ton. I want to start moving my practice in this area full time. Finally, what’s a day in the life like for those who do it now? Thanks!
Do any women feel that there is a pattern with balancing the egos and emotional reactions of the males they work with? I am a female senior associate on a partner track at a small firm (25 or less lawyers) and I’m very happy here. I’m the only female in my practice group and it seems like the men (particularly those more at-my-level) constantly have ego issues and problems with their toes being stepped on...

Anybody have any recommendations for real estate attorneys in the Bay Area? Looking to have my HOA/condo documents updated (and don't want to use Sirkin).
Can anyone relate to working from home and having children at home 24/7 due to mandatory virtual schooling? It seems as if my male colleagues do not understand why I can’t meet the billable hours each month. I haven’t had a paralegal or any admin assistance in 7 months. And one response I received today was “Can’t you just lock them out of your office.” No I can’t. And the firm is making 7k per month revenue off of me but wanting the double my billing.
I’m looking for a new job in a different practice area that aligns with my personal passions and I would love to create a post on LinkedIn broadcasting that to my network. However, I’m still employed and connected to several current co-workers and I’m not ready for them to know. How have you gone about looking for new jobs without alerting your current team?
In your perspective, what age is ideal for a man to get married? Similarly, what’s the ideal age for women. I know it depends, but if you had to say a rule of thumb and generalize.
I was just given a special parking spot and told I could move to the (recently vacant) nicer, larger office with a view of downtown. And I was given permission to buy new furniture for my new office. I feel so special! Now, anybody have suggestions on choosing good quality office furniture and how to figure out best layout for the space? I’ve always just made it work cramped in a tiny office, with old cardboard-quality furniture, and stacks of paper and books everywhere.
I’m in public service. I have been chatting with a partner at a firm and considering applying for an associate position. Partner has asked me to submit a business plan for myself. Never done a personal plan and struggling. What would you include??
Thanks for your suggestions! Thus far i have basically just typed a networking calendar for years one and two 😵💫😅
29 - single since 3L year. After spending a few years working on myself, I’m re-committing to dating. But ppl with “normal” jobs have apparently decided to only do 1st dates on weeknights? Bc weekends sacrifice their “quality” time? I work til 11 every night and would literally have to find coverage/take time off to pull off a weeknight date. How are single folks working big law hours making time? Every other associate in my group is married to ppl they met pre-work.

How do you bring in Clients? I’m in Plaintiff’s PI. My male colleagues play basketball or tennis with other male attorneys and pick up a ton of referrals. Doesn’t feel like we women have the same options.

I feel like the skills I have are not being utilized where I am at. I’m being micromanaged and am realizing the firm is stuck where it’s at, there isn’t a hunger to be great. There is just complacency.
I’m the project leader, the organizer, the leadership/management tips book reader, and the person who ran for leadership roles all through college and law school. I want to have a positive impact and help to improve a business/firm in some way. I don’t know where to go from here. I feel like government jobs aren’t for me and I don’t want billable hours. I have no clue what my options are.
I know you say you don’t want a government job, but if you want to transfer your PI skills, many local government offices defend PI claims. No billable hours and at least at my office, great work life balance.
Do you think it’s just the company making you miserable or the work as well? Or a combination of both? Are you looking for something entirely different or to continue doing plaintiff’s work elsewhere?
The firm is toxic for sure, but I think I need to move away from plaintiffs PI and see what else is out there.
