Hi all, just picked up a Unimatic U4, overall very impressed and for under $500 it’s a great daily/weekend watch to wear and to add to the collection. The case is a 40mm, definitely bigger then my Cartier Tank!

I lateralled into biglaw from a compliance job a couple of months ago because I was given a "too good to be true" opportunity (2 years out of law school), and I have regretted it ever since. Has anyone successfully left biglaw after one year and gone in house or boutique? (Please no nasty comments, we all make mistakes when that much money is involved). I can afford the pay cut thankfully, just worried about the ability to find work.
Anyone with a leadership role in a product strategy/ analytics in the tech industry willing to lend an ear and share some wisdom? Currently a senior manager overseeing a team in a similar function at a non-tech f500. Trying to pivot industries and would love to gain some perspective from someone in the kind of position I’m trying to work towards. Thanks in advance!!
As a new hire at Salesforce, when can someone participate in ESPP?

Big 4 folks how much of the work at your strategy practices are PMO type of work? I feel like most of the projects in my firm are just being a PMO for hire for a client project. No real strategic work a such. I'm still entry level though so just want to see if this is how the industry will be going ahead.

Just a thought, looking for input.
What good, and bad comes out of corporate lobbying in the US?
I've seen how it can shape some policies at a a federal level, but haven't done much research at the lower levels. All input is welcome. 🙂
Has anyone left big 4 for another big 4 as an equity partner in US advisory? Did the firm you left make you wait out your notice period? Partner agreement states six months. Wondering if they would waive it to save the 6 months of distributions and just rely on the non compete, or do they really enforce and pay the 6 months gardening leave? Appreciate any insight

Hi friends! Looking for some production companies or reps that can work with a super small budget. Should have some beverage/food experience but definitely lifestyle. There are multiple social units I need to create with different scenarios and have about $135k for production. Open to shooting internationally as well. Thanks!
I am working on a music video, that is on the lower side in terms of budget, that has a rather ambitious 3D/Vfx appetite. Does anyone have an idea where I could find the 3D artists? since I have been hitting a wall in finding someone who would be willing to jump on board this one…in other words anyone know of a good place for finding freelance 3d artists? Thank you in advance for your help!

New to Fishbowl?

Maybe Portland, Atlanta, Wilmington, North Carolina or Albuquerque, New Mexico. Possibly Chicago.
Nice, idk what your background is? But what is the community like in Portland? I’m a black woman in her late 20s who’s looking for community in the creative world! if I do decide to take the leap and move, what is the creative community like in Portland? In NYC it’s very “Hollywood mentality”/status like “who do you know?” / “how many followers do you have?” Type vibes and I’m not really into all of that
I have found work consistently in Portland without many dry periods!
Portland is great
Phoenix is booming. They are also breaking ground on a couple studios here with the new tax break that just passed. I’m a AP at an ad agency, but all of the freelance producers I know here are slammed, along with local crew!
What do you want from your work in this more cost-effective city? Each minor market has different pros and cons, so knowing that will help shape the advice.
Know if anyone who is hiring? 👀
I’m currently working for a NYC based prod co remotely from Florida! The whole team is remote, and we rarely shoot in the city anyway. Really doesn’t matter where I’m based.
Oh wow! How is it working remotely for a production co? What type of content does your co produce?
I made the move from North Jersey (working in Manhattan) to Chicago a yr & 1/2 ago. Cost of living is MUCH better depending on the neighborhood you choose & I’ve thankfully had consistent work either freelance or staff since the move.
Places are much more open to remote producers these days so I’d say visit a city that sparks some interest and do what’s best for you! I came here first to visit & it felt like home so I knew the move would work.
Lived and worked as a production freelancer in Cincinnati from 2003-2014 (went in-house 2014-2019).
It's a tight knit community in the industry that take care of each other. Kindness matters and hardball, super aggro work styles aren't much of a thing.
In my time there I paid off my student loans, paid off a car, bought a 3BR house a mile from downtown, and took several vacations a year.
Jobs were mostly commercial and corporate. I had a not-small chunk of work on TV shows (reality/infotainment), movies (indie all the way up to Marvel), and music videos.
Thank you for the intel! It’s much appreciated! Are you currently back to working freelance?
Curious if anyone knows what production looks like in Austin? Piggybacking on OP’s question :)
