Food for thought this a Friday. Quiet quitting has been trending for the last few weeks. This is problematic in two ways. A) Doesn’t actually identify the root cause for burnout (I.e abuse at work or poor company culture B) Completely dismisses a whole demographic of people unable to do the bare minimum without facing penalty. Any other thoughts? https://www.theroot.com/why-is-quiet-quitting-a-thing-for-white-people-but-n-1849407594/amp

Getting tired of feeling like the only one who actually does work or cares on my clients
MBBs, Other Big 4s - How are your firms doing? What do you think changed since April/May this year to fall? Also, how are are clients doing? Just trying to understand how the recovery would look like, and how long the job market will be a buyers market.
Hello there. I’m looking for an internship or entry level position in cybersecurity. I live in NYC. Any leads? In the meantime what are your favorite online labs? I’m using TryHackMe for now.
Albertsons. Recent IPO. Trading lower than its IPO price. Any views on the grocery business?
How do you not take a layoff due to RIF (involuntary reduction) personally? I was told it is not personal. All full time positions except 1 were let go. Contractors on the team still exist and so does the team. I can’t help but wonder whether performance was a factor and it makes me really sad even after a few months! Any examples of how laying off full time employees over contractors helps with cost cutting? Thanks!
Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice.
I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school.
Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return.
Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
Anyone else ever get feedback that they’re “bad listeners” if they don’t let the men in the room talk 75% of the time or more?
Got dinged after a job interview and was told by the recruiter verbatim that the reason is I wasn’t outgoing enough. This was for a product manager role, not sales or anything...so disappointing.
Has anyone gone from being an introvert to extrovert? I've always been introverted, but recently all I wanna do is talk endlessly and hang out with people. Is this how extroverts feel? I feel like I'm going insane with my need to hang out with people. Or is this the pandemic getting to me. 🤔

Plaintiff side question - comp is base plus % of fees. Firm has non equity split % with associate working on case. This normal for a non equity partner? Normal associate comp is full % when working with an equity partner.

Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
I just wanted to offer some positivity and encouragement in this last quarter! May the blessings continue pouring in while reducing the stress. As a newer partner, still in the earlier stages of my career, I am grateful for the insight this bowl provides.
Curious where people got their initial funding when starting a small practice. Did you just bootstrap it, or get a loan? If you got a business loan, any tips or suggestions?
What does a typical co-counsel arrangement look like? I have a potential 6-7 figure case. Been speaking with an experienced firm in this field to associate in and we are talking numbers next week. Not sure what to expect with a split, but I definitely want to stay involved. Case hasn’t been filed yet.

How much revenue did you generate during your first year as a solo? I’m thinking about going solo next year. I practice divorce law now so I would continue doing that once I start my own firm. What should I budget for and what did you make the first year?
CA: I have a quick question, we entered into a pre-lit settlement agreement for money owed to my client. The other party has now breached the settlement agreement (almost 60 days). Are the next steps to file a civil suit for breach of contract or is there a faster way to get a judgement enforced? I mainly handle transactional matters but I’m helping a client out with this.
Anyone use litigation financing to cover client costs? Or how is everyone covering client costs? Our caseload is increasing and now considering lines of credit from these litigation finance companies they say they have better rates compared to banks but I’d like to get some feedback from fellow fishes

Some success, now what? I started a solo practice July 2020. I’ve been successful in building a book of business sufficient to satisfy my overhead and provide me with a respectable income. I want to grow my practice somehow, but I’m stuck at figuring out how. I do mainly corporate transactional work and some litigation. Any advice?
Clio users, is it compatible with QuickBooks? And if it is ‘technically’ compatible, is it user friendly?
Just finished my 2021 taxes as a solo attorney and I don’t know whether to be sad that my business wasn’t more profitable 1.5 years after starting or happy that my husband and I are receiving a small refund. But, I am proud I turned a profit - even if it was small. However, the first quarter of 2022 is almost at the same gross profits as all of 2021. So, that’s a definite positive.
Do small firms/boutiques really have better hours than Big Law? A recruiter told me I should still expect to bill 2000 hrs at a boutique, but if that’s the case, why take the pay cut?
Atty as of July 2020. I planned to start a small firm with a fellow grad after school--then COVID happened. He continued forward with a solo crim def firm, and because I wanted to do business/startup law, I waited (again, COVID). I then got a job with the government (PSLF was appealing).
We gave this a lot of thought (incl. partnership agreement, business plan, etc.), and the itch is back.
Is it worth leaving the gov't and the PSLF gold handcuffs, or stay? Or should I wait for COVID to end?
