I’m switching over to consulting in June and I’m already assigned to a new project for the firm. I have a meeting with the Engagement manager on Wednesday and I was wondering what questions you typically ask or important information you need to know before joining a project.

As a new mom and a SM. I am having a tough time seeing myself progressing on the Partner path. Maybe someone here could help me? - I can’t find female partners who are in my life stage and are able to manage life and work. The female partners are either older or have no kids or have an army of nannies to work crazy hours. - I am an introvert and have a hard time imagining myself making fake friendships and rapports with client team members for the sake of making a sale.

Leaving a biglaw shop at end of the year. A client that I've worked with, and who has liked my work, reached out to me (a senior associate, copying all clients but copying no partners or other personnel from my firm) to ask if I could handle a new matter. They asked for a conflicts check and what my billable rate might be in the new year. I'm departing to a new, much smaller firm which will most likely have a much lower rate. How do you approach this? Alert the typical partners?

Can anyone share best practices for managing product and sprint backlogs? I’m at a place where the client has a roadmap on Monday.com, then product backlog items in Jira (set up as a Kanban with various columns like new, prototyping, review.. ) then the dev team have a separate Jira project where they take items off the product back log and refine those tickets and put them into a sprint. As the devs use a different Jira project the Jira id’s change so it all very confusing and hard to track and manage.

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
