Has anyone ever told their directors/partner at work they are considering leaving without having an offer in hand?
Anyone knows where I can get a list of good Ivy League colleges per stream? Like Marketing, HR etc.?
Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it? Or is a better approach saying it’s the leadership in general creating a negative and toxic culture? How effective are these conversations really? Trying to assess if there’s any point in bringing this up. Obviously HR works for the company and an employee sharing their thoughts on the unsupportive, cold leaders could bite me in the long run.

How to manage a SM who never appreciate anything you do? It is really frustrating when you work countless hours to meet their expectations and they get annoyed with one thing that wasn’t done.
We've started doing group stretching for two minutes every four hours. I was skeptical at first, but love it now!

How do you determine how many accounts a person on your team can manage? I’m trying to figure out what’s realistic and how many people to staff to certain accounts.
I applied for a job in ZS but my application was rejected right away, citing reason that I do not meet the minimum qualification required.
Did this happen with anyone else or any idea on this?

Hearing my male ECD joke about how cheap our junior animator is and how she does't get paid overtime before slamming her with last minute work MADE ME CRINGE SO BAD. What an ass.

Would this work with dresses? I am looking for nice (not too high) heeled shoes for work. https://www.aerosoles.com/products/east-side-dark-tan-genuine-leather?gclid=Cj0KCQjwl_SHBhCQARIsAFIFRVWPOumNX6nsFxyMRz-jAecQWgPBvKcwo3scCpdhaXqw_7Kxm-2W7xYaArj6EALw_wcB
I’m curious to learn how many applications or how long it normally takes for a junior corporate associate to lateral into another position. I am a rising third year corporate and employment associate at a small/medium size firm. I’ve been applying since I completed my first year. It’s been over a year and I’ve submitted 100+ applications. I do my best to network considering my firm doesn’t support my networking efforts and I work with good recruiters. Just really want to learn the norm here.
Ladies, do y’all enter time for emails? If yes, are y’all billing it to the client or as a non-billable time entry
Just finished my first week in BL (I clerked the year before) and the imposter syndrome is unreal. I am paranoid, can’t tell if people are toxic or trustworthy, can’t tell if everything is fine or if I’m about to fail horribly and they will just watch it happen and not care. I’m so paranoid right now. How do you find people you trust? How do you trust that everything is okay if there’s no indication things are not??
Assume one partner has looked out for you from day one. Assume one or more other partners suddenly need you (read: your labor) such that could leave partner 1 high and dry. These other partners couldn’t give a shit less about you in the ordinary course. You obviously don’t have much of a choice in the end, but how does this make you feel?
Happy New Year!! Is anyone aware of any firms hiring entry level attorneys in the Washington, D.C. area. Preferably firms handling or has a practice group in tech, privacy, corporate, or real estate matters!
Practice serious compartmentalizations. The work has to get done, and most humans in the US are stressed, so people are looking to us to at least perform as though we are calm. It is an old tip, but on days you are anxiety-driven, figure out the core things that must be completed this day or you will get in trouble for something, then work them one at a time, eschewing distractions, until you can turn that project over to someone, before you move to the next one. Note mood lift after each one!
What fitness apps do folks use for quick workouts? I feel like I’ve finally gotten used to my schedule at the firm, but my workout schedule has suffered...
Weird question. Got an offer months ago for a job abroad (not in my country of choice) and turned it down due to the low salary and not being in Europe. I started a new role in NYCsince I got that job offer in a large firm (from a small firm in a small town), started 3 months ago, and I absolutely hate it. Not sure whether I should try this small firm abroad for a change in pace. The new firm swears, “if you ever work past 5 pm here, there’s something seriously wrong. We don’t believe in that.”
I’m quitting after returning from maternity leave. I’ll go back for at least 1 month first (March). It’s the right thing for my family but I feel bad because I got hired pregnant, worked (see below)
My law firm gives me a report that breaks down the amount of billable hours collected compared to how much I’ve been paid on a monthly basis. Does anyone else’s firm do this? At what point do you think it’s acceptable to ask for a bonus/raise?
I’m having trouble brushing off a jerk opposing counsel. I’m in litigation and am a 10 year counsel with a 65+ year old man on the other side. Every thing I do or say gets twisted into me being dishonest or disrespectful. I recognize it’s a him problem and not a me problem, but we’ve had multiple hearings with the court over discovery battles and the court has sided with him several times. I can’t seem to just brush it off and focus on the case. Any tips in dealing with a PITA OC?
Nothing quite like getting criticized by a partner before leaving to get the kids - then spending the next 3 hours getting attacked by the children you created. Nobody told me life would be this hard.
Any suggestions on how to look professional during the winter? I'm from a desert originally and have struggled to look nice the past few years. Now that the weather is getting a little cooler, I want to start getting prepared. Looking for specific brands, and also just suggestions on what to wear/how to wear it!
What do you guys do as a brand new associate when your told to bill more hours but the work is not there?
Just had a white male partner telling me that I need to “stay more on top of things” when I wasn’t even copied on the thing in question and have been on top of every other task he gave me, including on the weekends. Really disheartening.
Wondering if any of you have an SO who is more of an effeminate man? Was the physical attraction slower to appear, but formed as you got to know them more?
I’ve gone out twice with a guy whose personality I like, but the physical attraction is taking longer to appear as he’s not my usual type. He’s a software engineer, a bit introverted, tall and slender, not athletic, and his voice and mannerisms are kind of feminine (he was raised by his mom and sister, makes sense?), which is new to me
I've been working late most nights this week. In the office all week despite the WFH policy. Partner has seen me all day. I'm heading out at 5pm to pick my kid up from daycare since my husband has been doing it for me all week. And the partner says we need to catch up before the weekend. Dude. I told you I had to leave at 5pm today. I had another $75 added to my daycare bill this month for being late at pick ups. Don't look annoyed that you didn't come talk to me. I can call you from the car.
Starting the process of freezing my eggs soon. Any insight on what it’s like to do that? How did hormones impact your work, if at all?
