I got an offer from a B4, which I accepted about a month ago but I haven’t started yet because I’m still going through the public trust clearance process. With that said, technically, I am not an employee yet, correct? Today, I received an offer from company B (minority owned 8A Certified small business) for a much better compensation. How do I use this offer to negotiate at the B4? Is it acceptable, though, I have already accepted an offer at B4? What would you do in this situation?

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t.

As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

Thoughts on sending out assignments over the weekend? I work a lot on weekends, but I don’t expect associates too. But, because I work on weekends, I often will send out assignments by email with a clear indication in subject line and body that it does not need to be completed or worked on over the weekend. A friend recently mentioned this isn’t the best since seeing the assignment may create unnecessary stress and anxiety. So, what say you? Am I terrible partner?
