Work from home has been great for many reasons, but the confession part of this post is how much a loud, disorganized, chaotic environment raises my stress levels. I’ve realized that I can be so much more productive in a quiet home office. But I know some people like the “energy” of a corporate office.
Related question: Do any of you wear noise canceling headphones, and if so, does that work to increase productivity?

Anyone know of remote work from home jobs located on the West Coast for Pharmacy Technicians?
It’s been about a month and half since starting my first full time job after graduating in 2020 (woohoo) and my company hasn’t said anything about going back to work in the office (I’m in MA my office is in CT). EVERYONE on my team except one senior art director and our ECD moved away from CT and plans on staying where they are. Is it feasible for me to also ask to stay remote? I’d even be fine with driving to the office 1-2x a week….

Dilemma: I am 1 of 4 workstream leads on a large digital transformation programme. My background is Enterprise Architecture, and I am leading a team that includes Enterprise, Solution, Integration and Data Archs.
If I wasn't so desperate for the resources, I'd roll off 2 new integration archs that recently joined.
They both openly challenge my decisions (which are made in consultation with the team) with vague arguments, speak to me as if they need to "dumb down for the girl", and (continues)

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?
It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.
Thanks in advance!
Received 2 job offers, one ~10k lower than the other, but still a >30% increase in my current pay. I think the lower in paying job fits me better , is it ok to counter offer asking for more? Do companies usually have wiggling room for this?

I’m regularly told that they’re exceeding expectations but then they get reviews that say they’re meeting expectations on a team full of people that do way less than they do? I’ve actually been told that if there was something between meets and exceeds…I’d get that…but there not, so I get the same average performer raise, recognition, etc.
Is this normal? And is THIS what is triggering the quiet quitting movement? Let me know.

Looking at refinancing my home and I’m trying to figure out how to best include additional equity in the equation since I’d go to a shorter term, but effectively keep the same payment ($50 more per month). If I roll all of the closing costs into the loan, I show myself coming out ahead immediately due to gaining nearly $500 in additional equity.
Am I missing something in how I should treat that equity? It seems too good to be true to be ahead Day 1.

Repeat question, ish. What is the income and year out of law school for solo practice attorneys. Also, i would like to know the approx size of the county you work in and type of support staff.
Currently in ID. A recruiter reached out with a plaintiffs side property/personal injury offer. The pay is $100-200k depending on experience. Since I can’t get anymore details out of the recruiter, and don’t have any knowledge of that side of the aisle l, is there a catch here? I always figured plaintiffs side had a lower base pay but got the real money from settlements.

Any truth in that assumption?

I am considering transitioning from being a W2 employee to a independent contractor/1099. What are some important questions I should ask before making a decision?
For context, I have been with my litigation firm for just over 3 years and have been barred for 4. I am doing fine, but I dislike the job and would like to reduce my hours (and get rid of some of the non billable work I have to take on). Ideally, I would transition to a job that I love, but I’m not sure what that is yet. Cont. below.

When would be the ideal time given that I’ve only just lateraled?

At least three associates in my office (DC Amlaw 100) have moved to other offices within the firm in the past year. It’s 100% dependent on the group and the specific partners styles imo
I think it can be done, but it also depends on what year you are and practice group specifics. You may have to travel back and forth
Moving from DC to NYC is a lot easier than the other way! I would wait until it looks like you need to move, then speak to your practice group or supervisor AND the NYC recruiting folks at your firm. I’m betting they always have lateral hiring needs in NYC, and I know that it is much more efficient for the firm to fill them without paying a headhunter. The reason I wouldn’t ask before you are pretty sure you need to move is that, if in fact you don’t need to move, it could cause you to become viewed as a “high maintenance” associate — that’s not a problem if you do need to move: they will either find a way to keep you in NYC or you will quickly find another job in NYC. Taking the bar again will be a drag (assuming you don’t have the years in practice that would permit you to waive in) but this happens all the time and the firm should give you some time off to prepare for it.
You should join the NYC Big Law bowl and ask there for more specific answers
Is your practice group in both offices? Do you doing any work with the NY office partners already? Are you barred in NY? If the answer is yes to all of those, it should be very easy. If not, it gets more complicated but might still be doable. If you are currently at an AmLaw 20 though if your firm won’t play ball I’m certain there are plenty of others who would be interested in offering you a position (which you can take or leverage to encourage your firm to allow you to stay.)
