Is this the reality of United States? Been here for 1.5 years and nothing has been more disappointing...
Thanks, Mr. Obama for delaying my flight.
How many firms is too many? I’ve practiced 13 years. Since I was a 1st year associate, every 3 years or so I’ve been recruited for another opportunity that is hard to pass up. I’ve been at my current firm 3 years and got the call again, again about an opportunity that is hard to pass up. I don’t like having a reputation of a flight risk, but this keeps happening. Should I decline to pursue the opportunity just so I have a longer track record at my current firm? This will be my 4th if I move.

I ended up in a heated discussion about something work related with a director and I did not let my guard down and made my points clear. I feel like he now has a grudge against me.
CSR 🐠 Is there an expedient way to add rewards numbers to hotel and car rental booked through the Chase travel portal? Airline was no prob...but can't find anyway to do via apps...would have to call the individual car/ hotel each time (he says with cold-shivers 🥶).
In-room internet not working at all (cable & wifi). Told the front desk first night and the morning after, 2nd night and still nothing. Should I ask to get points for this?

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
Does the WLB get better when you move up? Or does it get worse with increased travel, more hours, and weekend work? Wondering if it’s even worth pursuing partnership.

Taking out a female friend and her one year old baby for brunch. Maybe this is a silly question, but do I ask the restaurant for a high chair for the kid? Or does the kid stay in the stroller while we eat? Clearly I’m a clueless friend here!
Would you ever let your firm/company know that you are looking to leave before you give your two weeks notice? Here’s my conundrum, I have a great relationship with my boss, company, and upper management. I’m planning to switch jobs so I can relocate closer to family. I have some interviews coming up, and already have an offer in hand, so leaving is a foregone conclusion. My boss is going to be blindsided when I tell them I’m leaving - I can’t overstate how great our relationship is. Thoughts?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
What are the signs that you’re getting laid off? And how quickly can that decision be made? Is it possible to have poor performance today, then laid off as soon as tomorrow?
