Anyone do PR for nonprofits or activist organizations? Would love to chat about it! I've been working in tech/B2B PR at a specialized boutique agency for a year and while it's exciting and I enjoy the work, I don't necessarily find it fulfilling or meaningful (and corporate BS and internal politics of some clients is killing me slowly). I'm sure there's always a certain level of BS to deal with but I'd love to explore my options in terms of compensation, workloads, and job satisfaction!

Considering making a lateral move as a biglaw (Kirkland/Sidley/Cleary/Paul Weiss type firm) mid level litigation associate in a major market to a similar firm in the same market. I don’t dislike my current firm or work, have very strong reviews, and good relationships with some key partners. Main motivation for lateraling is for potential of a significant signing bonus given the current landscape, and general uncertainty about future at my current firm. Would appreciate any advice/insights.

I feel annoyed/triggered whenever my colleagues make reference to “being late”/ “turning camera off”/ “on mute because of” their children - whether that is dropping them off at daycare or at a doctors appointment. This has happened more because of the remote working environment. Why can’t people just make general comments and not bring their children into every excuse every time? Same as why I don’t go about explaining why I am off camera / dialed in late etc because of a fertility appointment.
