Coffee definitely helps.

Proper diet... eat food that can make you stay alert, for lunch.

Sleep! Work out! Eat well! De-stress (not everything is a fire drill)

Anyone have regrets taking a pay cut to go in-house? I am a pretty junior attorney (2 years in big law) and have the opportunity to go in house at a large company (Fortune 25). However, pay is on the low end for Associate Counsel. Is a 60K+ pay cut (including bonus and RSUs) worth it for the growth potential? Maybe for the chance to move to a FAANG one day? My would-be department/area is very transferable.
