What are consulting firms' relationships with the continent like right now. In the past, I've worked for a few firms which had London as a hub servicing continental clients and I'm curious about how Brexit and/or Covid-19 are affecting that. Are other European countries ramping up their local teams, or are they working on the assumption that nothing changes and the UK will continue to augment their numbers on assignments?
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
Why do you think everything is so busy right now? We’re pretty much sold out worldwide and my friends at McK say the same. What would cause such a large spike in business? People prepping for post-COVID?
There's some news that researchers at PGI Chandigarh successfully developed & tested COVID-19 💉. Can anyone confirm this? I am unable to find a reliable news article but it is being broadcasted on TV
What do you all do to make non-professional / personal connections? Particularly with the Coronavirus, and being in domestic relations, I wake up, go to work, work out, go home. So outside of law, my interactions with people are only at the gym given that my area is draining— particularly at the moment. Probably a good thing for now; but if we take coronavirus out of the equation, I’m interested what others in the community do to develop personal connections.
Not to start a political debate… I am not anti vaccine but have not wanted to get the COVID vaccine. I think I will be getting the vaccine tomorrow. Anyone else feel conflicted who originally really did not want to get it, but was kind of feeling forced to get it?
Has anyone here gone to London or Lisbon lately and can talk about the Covid test requirements?

Had my first hook up in almost 2 years over the weekend and now I think I have covid. How’s everyone else doing?
Hey fish fam, thinking of a side hustle for post covid and was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good business plan and financial plan template? Specifically for a restaurant. Appreciate any links you can share!
Welp. The unthinkable happened - my suit pants just ripped on the train. I guess my lil covid “break” from the gym is over. 😂😬😞
What do y’all talk to your SO about after work. With us both working from home, we are kinda in the loop of what happened all day more or less. Then at dinner we don’t want to talk about more coronavirus or work . Any ideas to get some new conversations going?
Talking to a guy I met a while ago. Only have hung out once before to hook up. A year later he makes a reappearance. I’m taking it slow bc covid and bc I don’t want a one timer w him again. We did a couple FaceTime calls then went for a walk. He texted tonight asking to come over for wine. I jokingly asked if he was sure bc I didn’t see him for a year last time we did that. Dodged it this time, but how do you ladies hold off on sex? Not looking to have a sit down talk tho

Currently at 135k base comp, should hit manager by EOY. Should I take a tech program manager position at FB for 200k? What’s better for long term career growth? I hear once you’re at FB, navigating to new teams, projects, and roles is possible.
Currently staffed on an extremely technical project. So I record the meetings and then re-watch it to capture all the important points. Any tips on how I can do this simultaneously during the call or fine tune my process so I don’t have to spend hours on the recordings?
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals. The question I have is: assuming I get an offer and the details work out, how do I navigate leaving? Should I provide notice right away? Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
Any tips on asking for a raise?
I love orange is the new black but can’t stand how the inmates make pop culture references that they wouldn’t even know had they been in prison since at least 2013.
I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
What is the health insurance provided by LTI? Is it floater or individual? Can I extend the cap of the insurance?
Incoming 1st yr BigLaw associate (V50 in a big city). I am curious if there are networking benefits to having expensive work clothes/accessories. I went to school on scholarship so I don’t have tons of debt, but my parents aren’t rich so much of the culture is foreign to me. I have hobbies I would rather spend my discretionary income on. But if having a Rolex or wearing Brooks Brothers suits would improve my standing w partners or if dressing cheaper would hurt, then I’d suck it up. Pls advise
Has anyone ever been able to return to the same B4 they left with a PIP on their record? Curious if this has ever been done before and if a PIP is even a factor.
