I’m currently interviewing for a role that is somewhat a dream role at my dream agency. But I currently love my agency, have no qualms, and am in the middle of a couple of projects. Is it bad to leave in the middle of projects but is there ever a good time to leave? I don’t want to severe connections and relationships I have with my co-workers.

There’s never a good time for anything in this industry. Do you.

It’s your dream agency and job. Go for it.

Your current agency will post your job on LinkedIn the next day.

I couldn't agree more with the above comment. You must put your career and your vision for it first. Your co-workers will be okay, they may even be thinking of leaving themselves too.

What about if it’s not for your dream company but for a higher salary? I’m sort of in a similar situation

For those of you who made the jump from a firm to in-house, how did you know that’s what you wanted to do? Most importantly, how did you know that it would be a better fit for you than your firm job? I’ve learned this past year that I really don’t enjoy litigation or firm life. It’s been impossible to try to get assignments from other practice groups, to see what else I would like, and I don’t really want to jump to another firm and practice group blindly. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts on moving up (particularly within biglaw) with the goal of being a star litigator. I’m very interested in becoming the person whose added value is my litigation skills, but when I look at partners it seems as though most of them are valued more for their ability to market and pull clients in. Is marketing the only way up in the biglaw model?
