Been working midsize for 9 months. I really want to go up to the big 4… 1) is it too early to leave? 2) Is it too late to apply? I’m on the east coast. Preferably NY/NJ if anyone can reference. 3) how do I explain to the recruiter why I’m leaving so early?

Was hired by a Big 4’s M&A tax practice to start in the Summer away from home. But I just recently received a tremendous offer with a Big law tax group in my hometown and there is no way I cannot take it—I’m a JD/LLM.

I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative. While I am so excited about the positive test, especially after miscarrying several months ago, I can’t help but feel totally guilty and worried I may have affected the baby. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!

Fishes need advice, I'm a M3 and my Partners have repeatedly told me that I am the strongest candidate for promotion this year, they haven't said it for sure though. I got contacted by Deloitte Digital, and I am being offered a Senior Manager role with a slight bigger pay when compared to my estimated salary after promotion (10k per year). Is it worth changing? what are your thoughts?

I joined the team less than a year ago and have been finding it difficult to meet people outside of my team/billable projects during covid.

What more can I do to stay connected? How do you engage with your broader team?
