What are everyone’s trigger foods- the ones that you can’t even have a little bit of because you can’t stop eating them 😂 mine are the mini chocolate chip cookies from Trader Joe’s (they come in a huge tub too, yikes) and spicy sweet chili Doritos.

I receive an invite to interview at Amazon from their recruiters at least 3 times a week. Over the years I have attempted the online coding assessment but haven’t successfully completed the assessment with a 100%. Does anyone have any experience with being upfront with the recruiter about this or is the online coding assessment a brick wall? Also, how do SDE’s like their job at Amazon? The compensation Amazon is offer nowadays is absolutely insane, so I need to consider…

Thoughts on sending out assignments over the weekend? I work a lot on weekends, but I don’t expect associates too. But, because I work on weekends, I often will send out assignments by email with a clear indication in subject line and body that it does not need to be completed or worked on over the weekend. A friend recently mentioned this isn’t the best since seeing the assignment may create unnecessary stress and anxiety. So, what say you? Am I terrible partner?

I know there are a ton of posts on billable hours requirements at many firms but do any other mid/senior level associates spend a TON of time on non-billables - group/dept./firm meetings; training; events; business development (writing articles, doing webinars, networking; outside association events); etc.? I feel like the number of hours spent on this is lost in the discussion sometimes and I know I spend an additional 300-400 hours on this per year. Anyone else?
I’m a trainee and made a mistake today. I was wfh, feeling sick and didn’t let people of my team I had capacity. Nobody reached out either, although they usually do even when I don’t communicate about my capacity. I logged out early 6:10, thinking nobody would need. Obviously an associate sent me a question 5 min later, which I didn’t see. The senior associate sent an a pretty aggressive email requesting to discuss tomorrow morning. Im feeling so stupid and putting my whole career into question

I’m in a general M&A corporate practice and would love to sort emails by e.g.,“Purchase Agreement”, “Escrow Agreement” etc…This would help me with the closing checklist process. I’ve only seen Outlook flag colors to sort emails but I’d rather use key words based on the large email volume.
Accepted an insanely good offer at a v20 but will need to leave my bottom v100 where I’ve become comfortable and well known by over 20 partners. Partnership was on the table at the v100 but I just could not turn down the v20 offer. How do I break this to the v100?

WFH question: We are on hybrid schedule. I come into the office 3 days a week. I want to fly out on Thursday after hours and work from a different city on Friday. Is it necessary to tell someone? I am in a long distance relationship so spending weekends with my SO is important to me.
For any recent laterals (within the past year) how long was your ramp up period? Trying to enjoy not being super busy but also fearing getting the “low hours” talk at some point.
Tomorrow, I’m off on a 1 week hike with no computer and mostly no phone or 4G/5G coverage.
I can’t wait! When I was in big law, I was forbidden from ever being unreachable. Changing to working in-house made this possible.

Do biglaw firms actually clawback lateral signing bonuses if the lateral leaves within the year? Can’t imagine them actually caring about the 30k but maybe I’m wrong.

Client wouldn’t settle this afternoon for the dollar equivalent of less than an hour of my billable time. Clients, man, clients.
I need out of M&A. I like the people, I like the work, I even like most of the clients, but my health can’t take the fire drills.
Currently on on a day where I literally got back from A&E and I’m probably going to work overnight on a closing (and no, it’s neither the partners’ nor clients’ fault, this is government dictated). We have resource but nobody with enough deal knowledge so it’s two people trying to get everything out while two first years wait on our instructions but can’t do much.
