I'm taking it for sure. But just wanna be prepared for what will be coming eventually..

What position OP?

Service engineer

You probably already know this to an extent but I was really excited about Microsoft thinking that I wouldn’t be measured on Utilization ever again. However depending on the role, you may have some pretty aggressive quotas and targets (particularly if it has anything that has to do with Azure). I decided to not take the offer and will probably try to exit after I hit M.

Are you joining CXP? I have moved and it’s the best decision I have made. Even though I left some money on the table, the wlb is great and definitely worth it..

Advice to young lawyers. Read a book. I saw the thread about savings and many young lawyers (20s and 30s) don’t know how to open up a brokerage account or invest in their 401k. I know they don’t teach personal finance in school (though they should!), but my advice is that you should go to your local library and read a book about the subject. You have the skills necessary but you must invest in yourself. No one will look out for you.
