Yes. We are bleeding and I’ve been screaming out for someone to pick up my matters when my notice is up, and there just isn’t any capacity in the team. I’m going to down tools on Friday and genuinely have no idea what’s going to happen with my deals. Not my problem anymore.

Are the juniors going to other big law firms?

I only know of one who has gone to another big firm but outside of NY. Most are leaving to switch practice areas and move to mid size or firms outside of the usual BigLaw bunch.

Strategy folks - how do you get good at … strategy? Recently started at a startup in a role where I’m the only person under the head of our product team who handles the strategy-focus of the company.

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
