We are stuck waiting on leadership approval for next steps and our main focus has stalled. Over this time my responsibilities and daily tasks have waned and now feel like I'm learning nothing, skills are stagnating (tech focused). But client is happy. My gut feeling is to roll off when our current change order ends (1/5) and find something more tech related. What are folks thoughts who have been in this situation?

If there is a chance to move on to something better - do it - just socialize your plan now

I am an associate attorney for a solo and the only one. We work with individual clients, not corporations. So I started to do intake and client consults and got 6 retainers in 6 weeks.
I am eligible for a bonus based on my billables, but I brought in about $10,000 for the firm just due to some sales skills I never knew I had lol. So I asked about fee splitting these sales and the boss said no, it will go to my billables and to a sizable bonus. Still, should I push for fee splitting or let it go?
