I said no to Accenture on the day of joining.

Well I am not just dying for Accenture but want to avoid any unnecessary enemies. Honestly ask me most corporate HR and recuritment people are same and use corporate as tool to exploite us but we can't fight all of them

From your question it seems like you have decided to say no to Accenture and are enquiring about repercussions. Stick to whatever you've decided. And if you're concerned about blacklisting, I'd say give the reason of backing out as "Higher education" "Medical condition" "Family issues" "Taking a sabbatical" anything other than 'I got a better deal elsewhere', play safe, don't hurt the HR's ego, give them an unrelated, non negotiable reason and that should help you not burn unnecessary bridges.

I am just starting year 4 as an associate doing 100% med mal defense trial work. I know our insurance guidelines require partners to do a lot with so much $$$ on the line, but in 3+ years, I have only: attended 36 depos (12/yr or 1/mo) of those 36, I: noticed 3 (1/yr) and presented 3 (1/yr) I have attended 1 mediation and tried 1 small claims “trial” I feel like I am losing my attorney skills, rather than improving them. Can I expect more opportunities or do I need to make a switch?

Opinions Wanted My Dad passed away recently and my Mom finally heard back on the value of his Deloitte pension. Around 350k. Combined with life insurance and retirement this puts my Mom in a much more comfortable position than she was expecting and mentioned she wants to use some of the money to pay down my siblings and my remaining student loan debt as she holds a lot of guilt that we had to take loans at all. Between 25-50k for each of us. Would you take the money?

Ever since he’s a baby we take him to play ground everyday and he is still the same. Any moms experienced the same?

I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
