I hear my friends complaining about how much they hate their job or hate the culture. This is why I started my own firm. I create my own culture.

I am a work culture of one after about fourteen years of working for others. It’s amazing how much time I got back when I stepped away from a firm and no longer had to put any time or effort into all of the drama, admin related to dealing with drama, etc.

Sitting on my porch in beautiful weather working on my laptop and not being interrupted by constant pot stirring chatter is bliss.

Client recently offered me a job for an open req (industry eq SM). The work is flexible, the req is just to get me in the door but I decide what I want to work on (which I trust to be true). Much better culture, wlb, etc., but I’d be taking a 100k pay cut and be an IC with no team. Is it worth taking a step back in pay and responsibilities, or does it seem possible to get all in one?

Convince me travel isn’t all bad rn: just talked to a coworker who came back from Greece.

Any of you manage WFH / telecommute more than 50% of the time? When I was an associate, you hardly saw the principal/owner.

But in my area of law (domestic relations/family), even in a pandemic, people love to just stop by. So that’s one of my concerns if I transition to WFH.
