What are the benefits of working at a small law firm (about 10 attorneys) as opposed to a midsize firm. What is the difference in the amount of work/ billable hours, benefits (health insurance and PTO), opening doors for future career opportunities, etc. I have an interview at a small law firm, which is not what I ideally wanted, but I am considering it because of the COVID uncertainties. I appreciate any kind of guidance.
What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?

What are EY's bonus rules for CFE/CPA?
Advice on how to start CFE? I gotta become a member first, but then what? And approximately how long did it take to study for while working?
Can the group members please share their experience about the CFE exam? How many days of preparation does it require? What are some of the useful study resources?
If anyone wants to study for the CFE but doesn’t want to pay the full price for the study materials and would be interested to split it, please DM me

EY- can vacation be taken in 4 hour increments? I want to take a half day one week because I need to leave out of town by 2p. Is that okay to charge 4 vaca and 4+ of other work?

Anyone have experience with lasik/smile recently? Would love to hear thoughts and where you went, along with how much time off from work (if any) you needed afterwards!
For the CFE, did you do anything in addition to the ACFE prep course? The course is just practice questions, so I’m wondering where I can actually learn the information first before that.
Currently planning an Australian vacation. Definitely visiting Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Debating on adding Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef. I don’t scuba so is it worth it?
The problem with diversity is they focus on a quota rather than changing the culture of marginalized groups in the office. So often people speak over me, take credit for my ideas... and it's accepted.
Anyone else think companies implementing travel bans are just rising this coronavirus wave to cut costs?
As a junior, should we still be overworked and underpaid in 2020? But also given COVID, does it all come down to ‘take what you can get?’
When is it appropriate to ask for a raise? I've been at my company for a year. They gave me an automatic raise after 6 months but that was giving me what I asked for initially.

A huge project of mine died a year back, and I just saw the exact idea on adweek. My coworker who was on the project took it to a new agency and made the identical spot. Is there anything I can do? Is this just part of the industry? I’m fucking livid

Anyone hiring mid level Art Directors in NY?
Coming from a traditional consulting background, would applying R2 instead of R1, quality of app held constant, make a meaningful difference? Heard the advice to apply only as soon as your app is ready, but does the round make more of a difference if your work experience is undifferentiated? Tyia :)

When I used to travel for business, my local cab driver would pick me up for airport trips. One of the drivers was from Lebanon. He would ask me jokingly how he could contact Modi to find out why India doesn't compete in world cup soccer or win golds in Olympics. I would answer him all of my cousins are either doctors or engineers. This NYT article reminded me of the good old days www.nytimes.com/2021/08/04/world/asia/olympics-india.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage
