I am a 2nd year associate in big law with private funds experience, and am hoping to move to a midsize / lifestyle firm (searching for a significantly better WLB). Does anyone have any recommendations of firms to consider or suggestions for how to find a recruiter that might know of these opportunities?

It depends on the part of the country, but the area of law you are in is strong right now, so you should be able to find a position.

Absolutely, feel free to direct message me. The market is very busy!

I’m working on a retained search for a top ranked firm in IM space with a great WLB. Major markets. Measurable results on WLB - they mean it and can show it. Contact me and I’ll give you the info.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. I want to get into management consulting and have been told my experience is too audit focused (been in audit for 5 years and now a manager). I’ve been told the next step in order to be “considered” is get your MBA from one of the top few ranking universities (I’m in Canada). Not sure if spending 100k on an MBA, for the possibility of getting into management consulting is worth it. Any way to increase my odds? I’m no longer a spring chicken..

I recently got my friend hired (1-week in) at my workplace and turnaround is all time high right now (darn Covid, 3 people left since I've joined for 7 months), but I'm gonna be talking to a recruiter as a salary offer came up for 50% higher than my current workplace. I feel really bad if this opportunity actually comes true as 50% increase to salary is ridiculous not to consider. I feel horrible and don't want to burn bridges and I like the people & manager I work with. What should I do?


Do I cut my salary by 50% for an early stage start-up, pre-Series B today? I could be a millionaire in a few years but the salary cut would be very painful for short-to-middle term. How do you make the call? I’m okay where I am, could probably go hard for more pay at year end but was interested in the opp. This calculation feels much different with a family vs single in my 20s. Please help.


Since we're all talking money, I just got my first raise ever and I'm feeling stoked. 🤗 My loans may still have me broke as a joke, but at least I'm feeling valued! ☀️


I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
