Anyone aware of TCS hiring process? How many days normally they take for the process. I had an interview yesterday both technical and Managerial. After that HR confirmed me over mail that I have cleared the interview rounds and asked to fill all the details on their portal. However, I haven't got any update today so I am just curious how many days they normally take to verify docs and proceed to HR discussion?Tata Consultancy Wipro Infosys IBM Accenture

What’s the best way to figure out if I’m getting paid market rate as corporate counsel for a large tech company? I’m at $150k, 7th year, handle any and all legal matters that arise in our company (a subsidiary of a global telecom company w $11 billion annual revenue) along with three other attorneys including the GC. We all work our butts off and I just don’t know how to figure out if I’m getting paid fairly for it.

How much revenue did you generate during your first year as a solo? I’m thinking about going solo next year. I practice divorce law now so I would continue doing that once I start my own firm. What should I budget for and what did you make the first year?
I just wanted to offer some positivity and encouragement in this last quarter! May the blessings continue pouring in while reducing the stress. As a newer partner, still in the earlier stages of my career, I am grateful for the insight this bowl provides.
Some success, now what? I started a solo practice July 2020. I’ve been successful in building a book of business sufficient to satisfy my overhead and provide me with a respectable income. I want to grow my practice somehow, but I’m stuck at figuring out how. I do mainly corporate transactional work and some litigation. Any advice?
1st year Associate at a small firm. I recently picked up a contract position that pays well for one day of work a week plus a couple hours scattered throughout the week. The partners have decided to cut my salary by roughly 35%. They pushed for me to take this contract position but did not discuss any salary reduction until after I accepted the position. Is this normal? For context, I am grossing slightly more than my original salary paid.
Do small firms/boutiques really have better hours than Big Law? A recruiter told me I should still expect to bill 2000 hrs at a boutique, but if that’s the case, why take the pay cut?
How do you deal with, handle, and control your very difficult clients? How do you tell your clients to shut the f*ck up and have you ever just threatened to file a motion to withdraw to shut them up? Where is the ‘ethical’ line?

I am a first-year attorney in a 3 person firm (I’m the third). My bosses put me on the PD appointment list to ensure I have work but I absolutely dread court appearances and litigation. I wanted to be a transactional Atty. Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been living in a constant state of panic and (embarrassingly) cry in the bathroom at least once a day due to stress. I’m getting a therapist but am seriously considering leaving the firm with no backup. What do I do?
Hi. I am a co-founder of startup and need some help with doc review and guidance as we move from our friends and family to Series A. This would be for me, not the company. I am based in the Bay Area. Looking for a solo practitioner or small firm, I believe. Any recs? Thanks

ZolaSuite? Anyone familiar and can provide some feedback - it would be greatly appreciated. Still can’t decide on Clio or PracticePanther, and now just came across ZolaSuite and got intrigued, doing some research and it shows comparable and more.
Query: in my state, proposed orders and judgments in contested matters must be served for potential objection before submission. If you're dealing with a pro at who is unlikely to agree, is it crazy to offer a signature line anyway and include an 9ncitation to sign off in the cover letter?

Does anybody have a resource available for pricing and billing? I am 2 years out of law school, working as a corporate attorney, and wanting to go solo. Ideally, I will take my corporate client with me, but am working to build work on the side during the transition. Also, do you have any recommendations for document preparation? I would like to draft wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents, but would like a resource that has boilerplate provisions to utilize as a reference.
What would you say are the main perks of being at a small firm vs big law? I know the pay can be a lot less.
