Hi everyone I just accepted a job at a preschool. I have 8 years of experience and was offer $15/hour. Is this a typical pay for a preschool teacher? Should I ask for more? **they are a small preschool not funded with a lot of money**

Guy in the row in front of me is compulsively checking his Bonvoy and frequent flyer status. So nice to have visual confirmation that I’m not the only one obsessing over silly points
I’ve been browsing Chrono24 a lot lately with a budget around $3500. Styles I like are Daytona (way outside of my range), seamaster, soeedmaster, Carrera, Navitimer etc. I also have always had a soft spot for vintage oysterdate but thinking they are on the small side. If I buy on the used market, what should I be keeping an eye out for?

How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
In the category of “first world problems...”. Am I crazy to want to trade in my Daytona for a new Kermit Submariner? Biggest reason is I actually don’t like the face of the Daytona— it is hard to ready the time at a quick glance. I actually also miss the date. Am I nuts?

Associates, what are your biggest pet peeves when it comes to partners? Partners, what are your biggest pet peeves when it comes to associates?
Free COVID-19 CLE training. This one is about planning, the ABA is offering one about insurances on 3/20 also.
Anyone ever feel awkward or bad letting folks know you’re out for a religious holiday? Yom Kippur is on Monday this year and there’s virtually no other Jews in my group, so it feels like an inconvenience to the rest of my team that I’ll be out on a random Monday.
The hill I am prepared to die on is that John Roberts is a coward and not a secret, liberal hero. His concurrence today is, in all but its form, a plea to be given an easier job—one in which he wouldn’t have to think about the fact or severity of an infringement of rights. No one praise him for it: it’s what he wants and expects, and he hasn’t done enough (read: anything) to earn it.
Ever since I became a lawyer, almost ten years ago, I feel like the time just flies by. I suppose this is a combination of being extremely busy (2200+ billable hours per year) and dealing with litigation deadlines. Any suggestions as to how I can make the time feel slower, the way it did in college and law school?
How do you know the difference between being burned out completely from law and just needing to change firms/jobs?
Anyone have any insight into how well state AG positions set you up for their federal corollaries? I am interviewing with a specialist branch of a ~more noteworthy~ states attorney general office (think securities/antitrust/consumer protection, think NY/CA). I think a big factor is how well this would set me up for SEC/FTC/CFPB etc. I might want to stay, but wondering how fed govt hiring managers might view the experience (when they often hire from biglaw). I otherwise have biglaw credentials
Can people share their thoughts on Littler? Salary/year, region, work/life balance, billable hours, firm culture, etc. Asking for a friend :)
Transactional attorneys, what is the most egregious behavior that you have seen from attorneys representing the other side? We always hear about litigators being petty AF.
Has anyone had experience waiving into DC Bar? I’ve submitted all the paperwork in February and it was just two weeks ago that they notified me that they accepted my application for processing. The DC Bar website says it takes an average of 8 months to process an application. Please don’t tell me that it’s from the day they notify you that the application was accepted for processing...
As a mid-level associate, what is an appropriate amount of notice to give your firm when you leave? I’m running a couple deals right now and do not want to leave my team in a bind...so 2 weeks seems far too short. That said, I also want to take some actual time off before starting a new role. Not sure how much time new employer is willing to give me before starting...I suspect max 6 weeks.
OMG so my practice group is v niche and matters are always staffed with one partner and one associate and a partner on one of my matters is going to be on vacay tomorrow through the rest of the week and we have a conf call with the client and the vendor tomorrow as well as ongoing communication with outside counsel and he asked me to take the lead and to call/text him if anything?
Has a client ever assessed your account? I’m in Canada and a client can serve a notice for an appointment to assess the firm’s fees. Is this a death sentence?
What’s your policy on telling clients about adverse events? Like say you won’t bill them to fix something you messed up and it’s fixable Do you tell them you messed up or what? I used to keep clients very updated now I only tell them major updates.
If you ever feel your life is pointless tonight I’m using my 300k law degree to redact 5 year olds names from their kindergarten school work.
How long is the typical equity partnership track? I used to think it was 8 years, but now it seems longer. Secondly, is it realistic to expect partnership if you’re willing to put in the work/years?

How big of a book of business would be enough for a firm to elevate a Counsel to Non-equity partner? Am Law 200 firm.
Crossposting here and in biglaw. Our FY ended Sept 30 so we're in bonus/annual raise time. I originated about $80k of work, all collected. I get 100% "origination credit" but that doesn't count for anything unless you're a partner. As an associate, what's a fair ask for a share of my originations? 20%? 10%? Be happy I have a job still?
