My manager shows up late to work almost daily. She is salary and our office hours are 9am-5:30pm every day. Senior management is aware of this and they don’t do anything about it, yet if any employee under her is late or needs to take time off due to lack of daycare or sick kids or being sick themselves they get questioned. The lower employee is looked at to be unreliable even though they show up to work 90% of the time and only miss for emergencies. Any suggestions what the employee should do?
Almost done with the lateral hiring process. Assuming I get an offer, how acceptable would it be to try asking to push back the start date a couple months? I’m getting married in August and it would work out perfectly to start at the new firm shortly thereafter. I don’t want to take time off immediately. Anyone have experience with this?

I am in the final stages of joining Deloitte . Currently they are performing my background check. I am planing to take 3 weeks vacation after I resign from my currently existing employer and before I start with Deloitte in August …. My question :: 1. While Deloitte is doing my background check…. Do I need to be employed with my current employer ? As by the time they call my current employer I would have already resigned ….

I don’t want to retire at 65. I’d like to be financially independent around 45-50, so I don’t want money stuck in a 401k. Is it better to save independently and pay full tax on income until 50 or to invest in 401k and then just take the early withdrawal penalty?

Everything just seems so impossible and hopeless
I am not sure which is more beautiful:
The snow piling up in my backyard, making it look like a postcard, or the “FAILURE! ROLLING BACK!” errors which keep appearing on my Amazon Cloud browser window.
How to answer the question why do you want to move? I usually answer for a new challenge but a couple of time I have been asked that we already have things in place and a major portion of work is to keep things working how is this a challenge? This is true for most companies, haven’t found a good answer to this.

Need 1st year lateral recruiting advice:
For the sake of time, I won’t explain the reasonings why I want to leave my boutique ID firm.
I’m a 1st year and only have around half a year experience. I want to go in a different practice within lit at a NYC AM 200. I know recruiters rarely work with 1st years, but applying on firms’ websites feels like my app will be lost. I want to leave asap for my mental health, but I know this process will take some time.
Recommendations on what to do? Thanks
Have I limited my options by clerking for five years at the state level? (2 yrs for criminal judge, 2 yrs as staff attorney for a different trial court, 1 yr clerking at appeals court) I’m starting to look for a civil litigation position for next year. I have an open mind on the practice area.
How many YOE for each: junior, mid, and senior?

How does a first year know they’re about to get fired at a boutique Corp law firm? What are the signs usually? I’ve always struggled with feeling paranoid about this as the culture/turnover in my firm is the worst. But lately my fear has become worse. Just want to know if I’m reading too much into things.
How hard would it be for me to lateral to an in-house position and make reasonably more money than I’m making now? I’m a 7th year working insurance defense. Went to a decent law school. Lots of litigation experience but zero trial experience. I’m sick of ID and to be honest I don’t even really like anything about litigation in general.
Anyone have a nice standard email they use to ask opposing counsel if they’d be open to mediation? I always worry I’m being too short or long-winded. Can’t seem to find a happy medium.

I don't think prosecutors should get peremptory strikes. They should only be allowed to strike for cause.

Prosecutor here considering career shift. I’m a first year DA making $87k in CA and have very good work/life balance + benefits. I’m passionate about the work but honestly need to make more to buy a house/someday raise a family in OC area. Any former prosecutors here feel the same way? Any insight from those in private sector re: higher pay but (possibly) worse hours? Considering L&E or plaintiff PI
