Interviewing with a few places and wanted to get insight into WLB for Slalom, PWC, and Deloitte. This would be in healthcare and/or life sciences. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
Advice please: I currently make $80k at a small firm in SoCal. I’ve been incredibly overwhelmed by my caseload and hands-off approach by my boss given that I’m still a “baby attorney.” Had an interview today with another firm that offers more money, lower billable req (below my current 2100+), will ease me into a caseload rather than just throw me into one (I walked into a 20+ caseload on day 0), and will be more hands on. Benefits are the same but higher pay (cont.)
I have an offer from NatWest with Bangalore location. Any insights relating to Cab facility, Wfh option and food and any other benefits they provide

Tired of the crappy culture in the healthcare practice and leadership playing favorites.
Just a rant but earlier I asked my boss if they would reimburse me for registration costs (less than $100) for an upcoming alumni networking event, and he flatly said no since it is "not a conference that the company typically attends" so I would have to bear the expenses, or speak to the COO for approval. Finding it hard to respond politely now.

I'm a PharmD graduate about to start at ZS as an AC in a few months. I'm really excited but also super nervous. As a 1st gen immigrant female, the consulting world is very new to me. I started out at a community college and just slowly worked my way up to pharmacy school. I'm afraid that I don't belong in this professional environment. I would love to hear any tips or advice (or better yet, anyone willing to mentor?) on how to succeed and navigate the corporate world. Thank you.
How do I unlock DMs? And how can one ask questions on other bowls? Thanks for your help everyone I really appreciate it :)
So I’ve been in the SM game for about 2.5 years now and at my new gig it’s a huge workload. Any time I forget a small thing like a typo or wait till the next day to send an email because I was busy with last minute requests, I get called by my boss and the issue gets blown up. My last workplace was pretty toxic but it was my first corporate like job so idk what to do. Should I stick it out for a year at this company? Or will it look bad on my resume if I leave sooner?

Giving notice next week - I plan to give notice to my main partner in person and call 3 others who are in another office who I have a lot of cases with. I have a bunch of partners who I have only one case with and don’t see/speak to much (and who are in another office) - is it ok just to email them? I don’t want to come off as disrespectful but I also don’t want to give notice 15 times in a row ☠️

Wow. A UK partner just asked for a call to go over the closing checklist morning his time. No, I am not in the U.K. and no the deal is not closing this Friday. We are on the second round of drafts and the date has not even been set into drafts.
I’ve been working to or past midnight every night. I ignored his note about wanting it his morning time and suggested 10am my time. I’m sorry but I’m not waking up at 4am to walk you through a closing checklist that is pretty self explanatory. 😒

Potentially dumb question but what is the time expectation in returning emails to opposing counsel?

What do you do when you follow a partner’s instructions to the T, but they end up criticizing your work product and by extension your competency? Do you politely push back or just take it?
That’s all fine to be mad about but I think it’s fairly normal to ask associates to do business development. Esp if the firm typically brings associates up to partner level.
Agree with P1. While OP’s circumstances sound a bit more demanding than typical encouraged business generation efforts, I think business development is unavoidable in private practice (unless you have no interest in partner track/want to be a service partner). Elevation will normally require some book of business. However, the request to go out to do per firm work seems to be a bit much. OP, perhaps you can raise that you’d like to do X, Y, and Z instead of all they’re proposing?
Did you seriously join a private firm and not expect to do business development? Join the PDs office if you don’t want to do any private practice stuff.
I never knew about this…literally never heard of business development being a part of private practice. I’m glad to hear everyone’s opinions! Thank you :)
If I wanted to go out and advertise and do duty counsel work, I would open up my own firm. I didn’t sign up for doing 90% legal aid work. I’m completely livid and don’t know how to go forward. It is hard to justify going out to and doing all of this work on my own time to make someone else money and barely make enough to get by.
They don’t bring anyone up to partner level. It’s a very small firm
Unfortunately, that’s the way this firm does the bulk of their marketing. Which is why a lot of associates have left in the past (from what I can see now). But yeah exit plan..definitely
Hmm wondering if you took my old job lol. I started doing those things on my own and asked my old boss if I could do pro bono to increase the firm’s bottom line (and also because I found the cases more interesting than representing the rich people fighting over money). I told him he could keep the money I made which was much less than my hourly rate doing my usual work for wealthy people, and I had a great time and became a better lawyer for it. He said it was a good deal for him as I was getting more trial experience so he could send me out on big dollar cases sooner. But I absolutely understand being upset if someone else told you to do it. In my case, it was my idea. It worked because I brought in clients who could pay and became nearly untouchable at the firm as a result. You can work on your exit strategy but do a great job at it as you may build your own book (the clients asked for me, not the firm) and become more valuable in lateral opportunities
Update: the firm has now said if we want to put money into marketing ourselves, they will support that and potentially reimburse us if it brings enough money in…it gets worse and worse every day
