I’m currently working with a senior level HR candidate. This individual has a doctorate in business with a focus in HR, her SPHR, Federal, and private sector experience at the singer level, and has a fabulous personality. I’m curious is anyone else having difficulties play some candidates like this? At this point I’m starting to think it’s racial or her sex based of the lack of interest in this candidate. Any thoughts?

So I got a job offer for a firm making one third more than what I do now. BUT the glass door reviews are terrible (all negative one very recent) saying that the bosses use you and abuse you. Small firm but I want to pívot into practicing L&E (I currently do construction defect and insurance defense). Sooo Do I accept the offer and hope it’s not as bad as the reviews and if so, stick it out until I get enough experience to jump ship?
BTW also working with a recruiter who doesn’t have anything yet
M&A Hours Check. What’s your year end target looking like? Think about 80 percent of the firm’s group is not going to hit hours. Not sure how sustainable this is. Definitely have great leadership that are swallowing the brunt of it, but I’m curious if any survivors of 08 ever had a really bad hours year and still survived. Obviously M&A takes the brunt during these times, but are firms thinking that they want to be poised for when things return back to normal or are they about to let the ball go
Can anyone give insight to the culture at Cozen?
I’ve had a rough day today and it’s not even noon on a Sunday. This is one hell of a profession.
I particularly don't want to work in this last week of the year because I want the billable hours to count towards 2022.
Currently in ID. A recruiter reached out with a plaintiffs side property/personal injury offer. The pay is $100-200k depending on experience. Since I can’t get anymore details out of the recruiter, and don’t have any knowledge of that side of the aisle l, is there a catch here? I always figured plaintiffs side had a lower base pay but got the real money from settlements.

ID Associates…how the hell do you reach your billable requirements? Just started at an ID firm and am lost as to how it’s possible when there is so much daily grind type work that you cannot bill for. Someone enlighten me.

Why did ALL our clients go from radio silence to “We need to sign the SPA on 12/31 at 12PM sharp” in 1 day? I was supposed to go on vacay on the 28th. Hmpf
I‘m a lawyer turned recruiter in NYC -i work w/ top US firms. I see excellent attorneys fail to advocate for themselves in years 3-5. Lots of opportunity then. And if you’re unhappy, try a new spot.
I have practiced law for several years and still struggle with the feast-or-famine nature of my practice. (Sudden rush of client outreach, many emergencies, then … nothing). A famine week might be 3-4 billable hours/day. My practice area does not have a predictable annual cycle, like “year end” or “tax day.” Any tips from other attorneys for how to recognize, predict, and/or even out these periods?
Applied for a senior associate position at a Big Law firm and received an email stating: thank you for your interest, but competition remains high and we will be unable to offer you an interview.
Is there any response that would cause this woman to reconsider me for an interview? I don't to reply with something boring/forgettable like, "thank you for your time."
Which books would you recommend to a product counel for tech startup about strategy, management, and leadership?
Big Law associates: Do you see a trend of intense “great resignation” recently? 5 people I know (a 3rd year at WilmerHale, a 7th year at Latham, a 5th year at Latham (same office, same practice), another 7th year at Latham (different office, different practice), a 6th year at MoFo) all quit in Feb. or early March. None of them lateraled (yet) and at least one of them does not plan to practice law anymore. I thought it was about Latham or this practice group before learning about the other two.

I am in year 11, fourth legal job. Transitioned to law from teaching. I would not have stayed in law if I were stuck at any one of my jobs. For instance I hated my first firm. But each time it was time to move on I got a different legal job. (Gov, nonprofit, now back to a boutique firm I am enjoying.) The field is huge; there are so many ways to practice law besides stereotypical firm life.
Small firm lawyer, so no interest in prestige. Combination of enjoying the job and the money.
I've been at my firm for about 10 years, and I get to do work that is interesting (to me, at least), I work 9-6, and I collect about 2/3 what I would in biglaw, with room for growth.
I've considered starting my own practice, or going to midsized firms, but never considered leaving law.
Patent prosecution. I write patents for tech startups. Most people would find it boring, but I love it.
Practicing 12 years, generally happy. I work in-house for a humane company with good managers and management. I think I am a little damaged since I support sales teams and their insanity is what keeps me going. I make good enough money, but not so much that I feel chained to it. I was ready to quit law after my first job was so draining, but I'm glad I decided to keep going.
15 years in this year and I love it. I’m in house energy doing regulatory, compliance, and ethics... I was at a small, regional firm for a couple of years and loved it, but - as a regulatory lawyer- I was getting pulled into too much litigation, which I didn’t love.
