What are TCS health insurance plans for family and parents with cost?
Looked at the email about the healthcare options. It said 22k is the break even for choosing between LDP and HDP. I don't get where that # comes from. Sorry not a finance person. Explanation?
Anyone willing to share insights about AlixPartners in Milan? I couldn’t find much on internet. Basically I’m just trying to understand a bit more about the office culture, size of the teams and typical engagements, comp&benefits and career path. The position will be Vice President. Currently I work on a boutique firm in London and I’m trying to move to Milan without compromising too much my current position (SC) and comp.
Y’all just a quick vent - I am 10 weeks 4 days and just really f*cking tired of being tired and nauseous. Work is like pulling teeth right now with a difficult client and a director/partner who aren’t respecting boundaries particularly well with some utilization BS on top of it. I have anxiety and ADHD just normally and this is our first child (but second pregnancy after one miscarriage earlier this year). Just uuugggghhhhh. Tips for coping appreciated.
My albo is having a baby!! Yay.
What types of projects/solutions does Oliver Wyman Life Sciences Consulting (post acquisition of Huron’s practice) practice offer? How do they compare (project types, WLB,etc.) to LS consulting at firms like L.E.K. Consulting, ClearView Healthcare Partners, ZS Associates etc.?

Hi Fishes, I joined FIS global Pune recently. What are benefits of National pension scheme - employer contribution at FIS ? Any idea?
Also where we can use meal card?
Put my 401k contribution at 30%. Just maxed out for the year but the sad part is that 20k+ is only 17k lol wished I had put less percentage earlier in the year so i can take advantage of this dip.
I'm a successful Manager and make a good living. I support my family of 4 since my husband is a house husband and has been for the past 9 years since my first child was born. Now my kids are 9 and 7 and I feel like I don't make enough money. I'd like my husband to go back to work but he has no interest. He loves being home for the kids and he cooks, cleans, does the yard work, and does ALL handy-man tasks around the house. Am I being selfish?
What are the advantages of working for a pre-IPO company?
I've been looking into several, and while they all seem to have great cultures, some are lacking in providing the benefits (401K, ESPP, etc.) that you can get at a more established company. What am I missing here?
Does Singapore offer national healthcare services like in Europe? I am an expat and it seems to be that expats can only get business healthcare insurance
I feel like I have a really negative relationship with my ADHD. As a child it really irritated and stressed out my mother so as soon as I mellowed out a little bit I always thought of it as a really negative thing. I still worry that if I talk too much or too fast, or forget something around her she'll get really annoyed or be angry with me. We've never talked about it but I think I might need to talk to a professional about it. Can anyone relate?

Ladies, did you change your last name after getting married? I’m worried about the impact it will have on my publications.
Additional Posts in Big Law
I’ve seen a few posts about long waits but does anyone know the typical time it takes to receive an offer or rejection after lateral callbacks? Or, if we could start a list of recent experiences with offer timing that would give me an idea. I feel like covid has made everything wonky. Pref big law corporate positions
Does anyone think “market” and lockstep salaries in biglaw are on their way out? Part of me thinks that DPW and Cravath not matching Milbank are them saying they won’t be bullied and they’re just going to pay what they pay. It’s only natural for firms to go black box from here
I work in a niche area of law and throughout my career I got to meet many partners at various law firms (mostly at conferences). I haven’t reconnected with many of them in the past 3-4 years, but I still have them on LinkedIn.
Tips on how to reconnect with these contacts without asking for a job right away? I am looking to change firm.
Second year lateraling to a new firm and changing practice group - do I have any ground to stand on as far as negotiating bonuses? (Signing, Covid, year end, etc.)
Thoughts on Allen & Ovary M&A NY?
I've decided to leave big law for what I think is a great in-house opportunity, but my firm is trying to convince me to stay. This of course has me second guessing my decision to move in-house, but I'm trying to focus on my long-term career goals and why I started job searching to begin with. Curious if others experienced this when giving notice and if so, how you handled it?
Anyone have insight for WilmerHale?
Specifically, I'm interested in knowing:
1. The culture across the firm
2. Whether associates are (or can be) hired in offices that don't have a presence for their intended group (e.g., if I could work out of LA for the IP group, which currently does not have any attorneys in the LA office)
3. What the culture is like in the LA, SF, Palo Alto offices
4. Culture in the IP group, specifically patent prosecution
Thanks in advance!
For anyone debating whether to go in house, I recently went in house, and the mental health benefit of not having to worry about billable hours is completely worth the switch. It's great not having to worry about catching up on hours when I'm out for a doctor's appointment, vacation, etc. It's more of a mental health relief than I guessed it would be.
I think that my boss may be wrong about a case analysis but I don’t want to step on their toes/am curious to know if I am missed something that they relied on… how do I ask them?
I’m considering a lateral offer in lit between a V10 and V50. The V10 has the brand value, but I got the impression that I would just be another cog in the machine there. The V50 is similarly well regarded in my specific practice area as the V10, and I do think if I want to try to make partner I should go to the V50. Does brand value particularly matter? I’m coming from a V50, and only considering government or staying at the firm.
Cap billable hours.
Does anyone feel like based on their practice area they could likely never work at a midsize firm later on and their options are mostly big law or in house? I feel like certain areas just don’t exist at midsize firms (eg, cap markets, bankruptcy, etc)
Has anyone been in this situation, especially with the maternity leave/TTC pressure? I just feel so trapped. We took a beautiful vacation and it didn’t help at all. I’m just not sure how to keep doing this, but leaving 22 weeks of paid leave, infertility benefits, and this fat paycheck just seems stupid right now, especially when I’m not even very busy.
A3, literally accidentally became a partner in this exact scenario. Been TTC and going through IVF for two years and the whole time just barely hanging on at the job because I want that damn maternity leave and not to have to start a new job pregnant.
What’s wrong with just sticking it out as long as you can until someone gives you “the talk,” if they ever do? I guess the question is, what makes you feel like you “should be gone”?
I’ve been sitting here trying to come up with a response to this and honestly, I don’t think I have one. The partners have told me they want me to stay right now. I’m really depressed and hormonal right now and that is probably the biggest contributor to me feeling like that. After talking it through with my partner, I think I just feel that way because I WANT to be gone because I associate that with having kids. The firm is putting zero pressure on me and I think I’m just projecting my feelings onto the firm right now. I’m sort of realizing that my unhappiness is so much more tied to trying for kids than work. I’m just really good at being upset about work and don’t know what to do with how I’m feeling right now.
Interview. When you find something right (with good pay and benefits), you’ll jump. If you don’t, and you end up having a baby while still at a firm, milk maternity leave, vacation, and flex time. Staying because of the money doesn’t change or get it easier once you have kids.
CC1 can I ask where? I’ve largely been looking at major contractors and the benefits are SO meh.
I’m so sorry you’re struggling to conceive. My heart breaks for you. Sounds like you’re having a tough time in a lot of areas and maybe reading that stress into your work. I was there a few weeks ago, the world was crumbling around me and I said work was the issue. It wasn’t. Take a long weekend this week and have a good cry, lay in bed all day, and eat take out. You’ll feel much better, and I bet those mid-levels aren’t thinking about taking your spot as much as you think they are.
Thank you for this. I already feel a little better this morning after doing what you suggested last night. This isn’t really a work issue. It’s a me issue and work is just the easiest annoyance to blame.
First off, I’m really sorry to hear about your fertility journey. Seeing how my coworkers and family responded to our miscarriage and fertility struggles, I feel like it’s an issue that you can’t fully empathize with unless you’ve walked through it.
Second, I wouldn’t hold up your job search if you’re career goal is to go in-house ultimately. Some in-house gigs have amazing benefits, so don’t write that off. And getting out of firm life and lowering stress can have immeasurable benefits to fertility.
Great points. I’m going to start ramping up the search with a more open focus on benefits and see if I can’t find something. I’m in a very niche area so it’s a bit more of a waiting game, but there are a lot of opportunities out there so I’m hopeful.
I found out I was pregnant the day I interviewed for a job where I would have better WLB and ended up getting the offer. I turned it down bc ultimately I couldn’t walk away from my biglaw maternity benefits. So don’t let anyone tell you that’s a stupid reason to stay. The extra time with your baby will be WORTH IT. And you are smart to recognize that you are probably projecting stress of TTC onto the firm. It’s also okay to emotionally disassociate from work a bit when going through the emotions of TTC. Let the mid levels take the laboring oar while you step back to focus on yourself.
I really appreciate the validation. I know I will always be a hard worker. It’s who I am and what I like. I just really feel like the extra time with my baby will be really important to me and I don’t want to give it up if I can avoid it.
What is your practice area and what type of law firm?
