My boyfriend of 3+ years (also a lawyer, we live together), keeps pressuring me to switch to big law even though I have said numerous times that I don’t want to go that route. He keeps trying to push me into it bc I went to a far better undergrad and law school than he did, and I have a solid track record when it comes to interviewing. He works at a large firm and makes nearly double what I do, while I work at a small firm (I still make over six figures). How do I shut down this convo for good?
Counter offer in hand, need thoughts. After first "negotiation", they offered that they could at best match my base. Current situation: 195 base, no bonus Counteroffer: 170 base + 20k sign on + 20% performance bonus This feels like I'm getting the short end of the stick, right?
Anyone use a coaching agency to prepare for an interview? I have a phone interview with Amazon
Has anyone come back from being put on a PiP? My colleague just got one and is freaking out - her manager is overallocated like crazy, the other two media planners were laid off, and she’s the only one left standing. Her boss says she’s making too many mistakes - but they’re so short staffed. Any hope, or should she start looking now?
Calculated my hourly rate by taking my desired yearly salary and dividing by 2080. Starting in two weeks but feel like I've shot myself in the foot and now I'm 0% excited for this role. Any tips?

SaaS contract playbooks: Anyone willing to link to good resources or have some tips/best practices (or links) to drafting & negotiating SaaS contracts? I have westlaw, just wanting to read more anecdotal/personal experience type content you’d get from a mentor. Pref for healthcare tech or subscription based resources but any SaaS would be helpful!
How would you handle the below scenario? I recently accepted an amazing job offer, start date in late November. I negotiated aggressively and I’m thrilled with the end comp. It is a start up with 100 employees. But the CEO is pushing for me to have regular calls with him before my start date to discuss work and review documents! I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot by refusing, but also don’t want to set unrealistic standards. Would offering 1-2 calls in the next month be ok? Thanks!
Preparing for product manager interview for FAANG. Any good resources you recommend? Is there a bowl for product management?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
