Need to vent. Several times this year I have needed to cancel events for legitimate issues (surgery, I’m in trial, cases just being transferred to our office, short notice/urgent doctor’s appointments, family health scares, and pregnancy complications). Every time I have a male attorney on the other side it ends up in a f*cking battle over scheduling. I don’t understand it. I’ve been practicing for 6 yrs & it’s gotten exponentially worse over time. When did lawyers stop being people???
Laid off a few weeks ago from AFS. Is anyone willing to refer me to a position at Deloitte GPS, Guidehouse, or Booz? Experience at AFS mainly consisted of Fed contract pricing, change management work, and digital transformation strategy.
Received offer of 92.5k and no signing bonus for GPS Consultant. Had spoken with recruiter about 95k before interviews and have heard of many others receiving 5-10k signing bonus. Should I push for both or just salary? How should I ask for signing bonus specifically?

Is anyone else feeling a sense of increased anxiety but can’t put their finger on why? My workload actually feels a bit lighter, but I’m feeling a sense of almost suffocation. The holidays? Seasonal depression? General fatigue from covid?

One of my roommates has been trying (unsuccessfully) to kick me out of my apartment and back to my parent’s house because I have COVID and it’s screws up with his ability to go into his office apparently (he’s even vaccinated). Anyone else face something similar?
Deloitte experienced hires: is the case interview written on paper and you go through it before questions or are facts conveyed verbally ? Also would love your thoughts on how difficult was the case:)
Has anyone else here experienced significant weight gain due to the medication they are on? Could be medical or mental health-related. If so, does eating well and exercise still help reduce it?
