2YoE at Tier 2 FS practice, considering a switch to commercial law. Any thoughts on the long-term TC trajectory at MBB/Tier 2 consulting vs Magic circle law? Also on the stability of the respective careers? I have this perception that even if I don’t survive Commercial law, at least I can move to Swindon or Milton Keynes and retrain as a high street solicitor doing divorce filings making £50k for the rest of my career. Exit opportunity for consultants seems to be pretty bleak in UK.
If your agency is not diverse, these are some reasons why: • Internships (either hosting interns, or using internships as a prerequisite) • Degree requirements (either mandating a degree, or hiring based on any unrelated degree just for the sake of having one) • Only young, white recruiters (especially those without bias training)

Finishing my first year at pwc - I've been in contact with a recruiter from Marakon for an associate position. They're offering ~90k up to 20% performance bonus (skeptical about this). Worth it? Ctd..
It is disheartening, almost depressing, to see how many friends - good, smart people - have quit/are leaving Deloitte because of the "pay em the bare minimum" attitude. Unfortunately we are headed down the path of "if you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys". Isn't consulting about hiring, training, and retaining smart people? Good luck Deloitte.

Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)
They say what they call as "Milestone Year" then you work work and work and then at the end the reason is leadership doesn't feel you should be promoted, how can someone's feeling describe about your work if you never get that feedback in the meetings. Its all so screwed up and people are just taking advantage of you because they know if you are on a visa where will you go?

Just got a 5% raise(not a flex). Do I put it straight into my 401k and get a little match (not too great but still something) or keep it liquid and save it for a house? I want to get into a house in the next year but only put 10% into retirement currently.

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
