Found correspondence between two partners discussing my performance on a shit show case from earlier this year 1 day following my early leave from work due to scheduling of an emergency c-section. Partner 1 suggested that I was a “lifestyle” attorney and not an Apex predator and that I should be fired. Partner 2 mentioned my overall good reputation, but apologized that I “took off suddenly to have a baby. ” I busted my ass all year while dealing with a difficult pregnancy. I feel enraged.
Any minority lawyers in here that were blacklisted from big firms for a time gap or after layoff? How did you move forward?

Would you be willing to take a demotion for more money?
My boss keeps saying cryptic things that has me feeling like I am at risk of being laid off. Funny enough, today a friend reached out to me about an in-house position at her company. It seems ok and there is a chance I would be able to get a $5k or so raise in pay, but the position would be a huge title demotion for me from a mid-level strategist with 6 yrs experience to more entry-level coordinator role. Is it worth it?

I’ve been unhappy with my job for awhile now, was waiting to make it to the 3-year mark but I just can’t take it anymore.

I'm an EA at a small global consulting firm (<25 people) with 5 years of experience supporting C-Suite execs. 3 months ago, the CEO put me in charge of our marketing efforts, and yesterday, he fired our recruiting coordinator and asked me to take over her job. I'm asking him for a raise on Thursday. I want to be a team player but am feeling like my job is a catch-all now. How would you define my role and how should I approach this conversation?
Hi friends! I’m working on creating a list of job seekers and open jobs for all the people who have been affected by the massive layoffs lately (including my colleagues at OneTrust). If you have been affected by a layoff or have a job(s) to share, please feel free to DM me your info! Here’s the format for open jobs!
For all fired this year, do you put on your background check (for a job offer) that you were discharged? Heard EY doesnt share if you were fired or resigned, so am wondering what others are putting...

Is it bad to consistently email hr to fix your timesheet? I am literally so forgetful about my check in and checkouts and I feel ashamed
Looking for advice... 5 months ago I went from Higher Education (HE) Law Firm. I was so excited to move on and was offered about $16K more in my salary.
Today I find myself not excited about my current job and since the firm is much smaller than my last job in HE I feel like there is less growth opportunities. Every day I want to message my old manager about coming back but my wife doesn't think I should primarily because of the stress I went through. I miss the 'stress' and workload.
