Lawyers on LinkedIn: we must all help each other! Defend your weak colleagues! Stand up for what’s right!

Lawyers, anonymously, on fishbowl: don’t get involved even if you can help. Watch other people suffer, it’s their business not yours. Mind your business.

Salary POV: I recently accepted a position at Oracle Consulting USA (Cloud ERP practice) in their delivery organization as a Director Cloud ERP.

I have 20+ years of experience in EBS, Cloud ERP as an SME as well as PM roles. My question is did I settle for less? Should I have negotiated better? Any inputs from people in similar roles at Oracle or ex-Oracle?

So, I hate my job. For years I’ve been trying to work through nitty gritty and minutiae in the hopes that sorting out those details would “fix” my dissatisfaction. I’ve switched jobs a few times and dabbled in a few practice areas. But I’ve realized I just hate practicing law. Is there any reason to tell your boss or supervisor that you’re miserable? My assumption is no. They won’t fix things. So why would you? Any reason I should reconsider? (P.S. looking for an exit, but that’s not settled.)

Mexican attorney here - I am currently researching LLM programs (specifically M&A) and somehow paying USD$200K to study in the US doesn’t seem too appealing.

I hold a Spanish passport which may help with tuition fees in European Universities - do you recommend any European LLM programs or should I just bite the bullet and ask for a loan and pay the USD$150 - 200K?

Mentioning the programs is greatly appreciated.

But today I found out that associates with 4yrs experience are making $80k; for hitting the 1950 billable req., the bonus is $1k. I've also found there are big DEI problems that I can't overlook. It feels like the pitch was a big lie. Advice?
