@ey2 what city/service line?

How many have you actually worked?

2200

Staff, DC. 1400. Much of my time is eaten b/c my regional firm has high billing rates (225 for staff) but expects 1650 hours and shit realization. I get fewer hours and very good realization. It's a very stupid model

What happens if you don’t hit your billable hours? I am a first-year that had a very slow February and slow start to March. I’ve been reaching out to various teams for work but things seem slow now & I’m worried that I’m not going to hit my 1800 target.

I’m thankfully hitting my hours, but my firm keeps passing non-billable work my way. I am grateful for the opportunities, but this type of work always seems to find its way to the female associates at my firm. We have been told that non-billable work is irrelevant in terms of our annual hours. Any tips on how to navigate this in a thoughtful way? I want to be a team-player, but I believe that others need to step up to the plate.

I just started as a first year associate at a firm that does not have any organized pro bono, however there is an “uncapped” billable hours policy that would allow me to apply pro bono to my hours requirement. How would you suggest I go about getting into pro bono work? It’s my understanding it’s not done much at my firm.

While attending Catholic school in the first grade I was really naughty and sneaked in the empty classroom during recess with a friend. We raided the treasure chest full of goodies (candy, stickers, snacks) and stuffed them in our backbacks. When it was time for class, our teacher noticed the missing treasures and made us all sit in silence until one of us cracked. Someone ratted on my friend, I was in the clear, and my friend never told on me. I still feel bad about it. : (
