Thoughts on long hair for male consultants? (Well kept straight hair, and clean shaven) Are ppl still biased against long hair guys?
Hi there, I’m really interested in working in the entertainment industry—specifically the studios / tv development and production side of things. Is there anyone in this group that does this kind of work that would mind talking to me about it (what the day-to-day looks like, the type of skills needed, how to break in, great companies to work for / terrible companies to work for in this industry, etc.)? Trying to learn as much as I can to see if I could make the jump :) Thank you!!

I’m new and I’m still not understanding the concept of USDC. Aside from pay, and supposedly more 9-5, what’s the difference. It doesn’t appear for me that anyone else on my projects is USDC (how would I know/check?) and I have no clue how many hours they’re working. It’s just all confusing.
Hi. I will be shifting to Bangalore in June. I have never been to Bangalore ever. This will be my first time. Can anyone help me with how to get a LPG gas connection in a rented apartment for people belonging to other states.

(2) company match
(3) option to purchase additional PTO
For example, at my company GDIT
(2) 100% match up to 3% of your salary, then 50% match for the next 3%, making a total of 4.5% of your salary
(3) yes, up to 40 additional hrs

Are you one of those people who practice their comedy routines while checking out at the store? Why are you the way that you are?
Are there options trading coaches or mentors? I’ve done well in stocks trading, have basic knowledge of derivatives from the BComm in Finance and various books/online resources.
But I feel like I’m really lost in the actual practical aspect of options trading and would love to learn directly from someone who’s experienced and successful in it. Preferably someone who’s smart about risk-minimizing strategies.
A big stain (may be semen/ water/ soda/ any liquid) on my bedsheet. How many spg points can I demand?
Just had a “tech screen” with a startup where the interviewer was rude and condescending. Kept berating me when I made a minor mistake and talked over me when I’d try to explain my thought process.
Note to interviewers, do better. It’s a candidate’s market and you’ll have a hard time attracting talent with a toxic culture.
I hate social media

So I’m in the middle of completing my offer. Background check and drug testing are awaiting results. I’m putting in my two week notice tomorrow. Do I disclose where I’m going to next if those items haven’t cleared? I don’t have an official start date yet. I’m not worried about my results but anything can happen over the next two weeks. Don’t wanna put down a future employer without 100% certainty.
Is there any opportunity for 20+ years of experience candidates in any field. Does people switch at this yoe?

A colleague (different firm) a little younger than me committed suicide. Last time we spoke he mentioned stress due to a judge enforcing a scheduling order neither party wanted, trying to juggle that with an untenable custody situation, motions to compel depos on days he doesn't have child care. Why do we make this so difficult? My mom practiced in a rural county with 15 lawyers and I wish that kind of civility could exist in bigger markets. Say hi to your work friends today
Anyone ever have second thoughts after giving notice and if so, how did you work through them?

A close friend asked if I could represent her (pro bono) in her divorce. I’m not a divorce attorney and she’s 250+ miles from where I practice. How do you handle crazy “free legal” requests like this?
I have an interview with a small firm in San Francisco and they’ll probably ask me my salary expectations, but I have no idea what’s market these days. So what’s the salary range for mid- to senior-level private practice V.C./M&A attorneys in San Francisco? Thanks!
Any other Penn JD's here? Feeling slightly weird about the renaming. Of course a gift of $125 mil allows a donor to make all sorts of demands. But seeing it so clearly...wow
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.
Looking for entry level gig economy sites and apps. I’ve tried a lot but I’m always looking for new ones I haven’t heard of yet maybe.
I don’t qualify for anything like Priori sadly. Just need entry level ones that aren’t competitive, maybe geared toward low tier school grads with bottom class rank.
Is it okay to take a day when a pet has died? I found out this morning that my childhood cat passed last night. He was almost 17 so I had a feeling it was coming soon but I am still so sad and struggling today. I’m worried about the “it’s just a cat” judgment…
Still another month before bar results come out--job depends on it. Does the nausea eventually subside or is this just a part of it?
I'm thinking about applying for 2 new bars because I will or want to have business in those states. I don't want to appear pro hac for different reasons mostly I have enough business. What are my concerns with becoming a member of 3 bars besides dues? Looks like CLE's will likely overlap. So it's just the application.
Has anyone considered going back to school?
Our new junior associate’s billable hours are so low in first 3 month. Requirement is 1800 billable hours annually, but it is low 1400 pace from calculating from average weekly billable hours. Any suggestions for what to do in the person’s 3 month review?
What is your firm’s work from home policy? I’m technically allowed to work from home but the partner prefers that I’m in the office, but he works from home or remotely while traveling somewhat often. Some days I just feel that I’ll be more productive from home. My office is a 30-40 minute drive and sometimes I just prefer to roll out of bed and start working. I always feel guilty when I work from home though. Another partner hasn’t set foot in the office since March 2020.
Do you bill for software processing time? Time it takes to locate and open the proper Word document and exhibits, etc.

The partner emails me before a conference call and ask me to take lead for him, so of course I say yes, then he just straight up doesn’t show up for the call? SIRRR
How tacky is this and how much will everyone at my firm hate me - I am probably going to be offered an in house job in the next few weeks (I am in interviews at a few places, down to the last few people and they’re going well). I am contemplating delaying my start date until January in order to get my bonus which is paid out in December. Is this something people do? I’m justifying it by saying to myself “you earned it” but I feel like a huge butthole. What are the alternatives?
Leaving my firm after being here for over 5 years. Wish I had kept better track of the number of deals and projects I worked on and the emails I'd want to save. All the emails will be lost to me forever, which is an odd feeling.

Nah. Just say “appreciated working with you, and hope our paths cross again.”
Maybe also see if they're on LinkedIn and try and stay in touch
Same as above and adding that OC sounds like a good mentor material.
OC sounds like the type of person that you could try to stay in touch with and grab coffee or drinks with at some point in the future. I’d just add OC on LinkedIn or something and make a point to say hello at bar events (assuming you’re in the same location). These are generally the type of people you can network with and they can help you out later in your career.
For now though, just follow A1’s advice.
Frankly, I've done this a number of times. A phone call, thanking the attorney for being kind and thanking them for their professionalism is fine. In smaller markets, where life is less cut throat and most lawyers know each other, sending a brief handwritten note thanking them for their professionalism would be appropriate. Sounds like someone you might even want to call for future advice or seek out at a local bar function to be sociable.
Wow, this is so wonderful to hear! Please do let OC know their kindness is appreciated. We need to do all we can to encourage people like this.
Something short and sweet like A1 suggested is perfect. Do keep in touch, though. My husband had a similar experience when he was starting out, and that attorney became a great mentor, supporter, and eventually friend for 30 years!
I do this with associates who were really nice to work with on a one off when emailing on a matter towards the end of a deal, like “thank you for xyz. By the way it’s been great to work with you, thank you for being so easy to work with” or the like. I’ve had another associate email me and ask to keep in touch/get a drink after a deal and I thought it was a nice gesture. 100% agree with A1 and everyone else’s advice to keep in contact with that person. It’s these sorts of people that you want to foster relationships with.
Depends on the jurisdiction. If it’s small and you’ll likely see them again then definitely, yes. I practice in a jurisdiction so small it’s known for its own way of practice…. This would be appropriate and possibly expected where I practice and would help in the future when dealing with that person.
That aside though — I say go for it regardless, they’ll appreciate it and it can’t hurt.
