I call upon the construction law fish! I need advice. I'm in insurance defense now trying to continue my specialty. It's hard because I get thrown into almost every case. I came from a midsize in a different state and moved bc I got married. A well-respected boutique approached me about joining their growing construction practice. They get a lot of work from large developers. Should I make the move if the money is right? I like my current firm - it's not perfect but I get along with (cont)

Yes! I have been getting great experience here, and it helped me learn the laws in my new state. I have been trying to build up the construction practice, and it looks like we are starting to get some defect cases... it's been 2 years though and I think it's harder to build a book here if you're so insurance focused. I guess I just feel bad because I get along with the people here, but the idea of getting back into what I did before sounds appealing.

I get along with everyone. But I feel like the career opportunity is better with this other boutique. I know the owner of the boutique - he gave me advice when I was new to town and we stayed in touch. What do you think?

I am currently working on my MBA in a professional evening and weekend program at a highly accredited university. I am thinking about transferring to a much smaller private online program, specifically because they offer a concentration in organizational health, which directly builds on my doctoral research. Does great depth and specialization outweigh the value of a highly respected generalist degree?

Anyone working in Insurance Tax (Premium/State/Excise/SUT/etc.)? I’m feeling undervalued and burned out. I have been in my role for 5 years and I’m making 80k.

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here.

It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.
