I really want to work in an office again. I like putting stuff on the walls, talking with people, the serendipity of things. I think it benefits the work. Who else is looking forward?
Hello fishies! Curious to know everyone’s experience with networking during a transition. When chatting with someone who is trying to pivot into a new role, do you find that they often withhold saying anything negative or potential conflicts/challenges about the team dynamic or role itself. Do you find yourself doing this? If so, why? It seems like only benefits the employer and keeps employees in a perpetual state of discomfort. Thanks

What % of your net pay do you invest? I max out my 401k, and I currently put $7k away (either in an ETF or in my bank account). I just bought a place and now I’ll only be able to put away $4k or so. I usually keep $5-6k from my paycheck and spend it on whatever, but I’m wondering if I should be putting a lot more away? I’m not trying to retire early and I like to live comfortably.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Hi everyone! I’m switching internally to my company’s LA office (from Boston). I only need to be in the office 1 or 2x per week and am toying around with the idea of living in San Diego and commuting up that one day. It’s likely be a 2.5hr drive or so each way, which seems like a lot. Can anyone speak to whether or not I’d go insane with that setup or if there are ways to make it more tolerable? I just have more family / friends in SD and would prefer to live there if possible :) thank you!!

Anyone know of someone trying to break into BigLaw after failing the bar? I mentor a young woman who just found out she failed late last week. Her 1L grades were low (improved 2L yr) so missed out on OCI. She has a pretty good reason for failing the bar as she had a newborn baby in late June. Any advice? Do you think focusing on the bar then trying to get a job with a regional firm and lateraling is the only way? Or do you think she could get a job right out of gate? She wants to do corporate.
