Thank you for the validation! It’s so frustrating

It’s not common for associates/senior associates to be included in sales as they don’t have sales goals they need to achieve or the track record to impress the clients/speak to the solution & advantages of the firm/proposal. However, some staff/seniors may be pulled in (typically from the bench or someone on their current project) for quick turnaround work products to be used in their proposal.

I’ve been pulled into several sales conversations previously so the recent change had me feeling weird. It’s really helpful to know it’s not as common as I thought, thank you.

Hey all - was recently traveling with Amtrak and someone robbed my bag!

Once Amtrak found the bag a month later, my YSL tote and silk blouses were stolen, and my leather pants slashed with a knife. It was clear what had happened as my leggings and makeup was still in there. They keep blowing me off - what do I do?
