I’ve gotten to that point in my career where I’ve stopped dreaming about getting into my dream agency anymore but rather just getting A job. This industry and the people can really degrade you...

This is so important. For some of us that pressure to land you’re”dream job” can create a lot an anxiety. Focus on the projects you have, find ways to make them better and enjoy being employed. Contentment is key.

Same. Same.
The dream agency, account, location still has a decade or two to materialize when and if it does.

I also realized those idea of the perfect doesn’t exist. There will always be something but you pick your top 3 and keep doing hard work.

I’m an IP associate (focused mainly on trademarks) in an AMLaw 200 firm (slightly below NY market pay) and I’m curious to know what IP groups (mainly trademark related practices) at V50 firms are like. My practice is relatively chill. No major fires to put out - steady and predictable 8-9 billable hours a day. I can generally not work on weekends. Am I at a unicorn shop or is this normal for Trademark practices?
