In my first year of big law and hours at my sweat shop firm are already getting to me. Recently got an email from a recruiter promoting a fully remote lit associate position with a 1600 hrs reqmt at a less than 50 atty law firm and essentially what is old Cravath scale pay. Does anyone have experience with a move like this? Too good to be true? I was under the impression that positions with low billables for big law (or close to big law) pay don’t really exist…
I just got offered a new job at a large bank. I’ve been wanting to transition from Assurance to financial services, but this new job is for the same pay. The hours would also be much longer, and my travel/living expenses would go up if I were to take it. I’m still interviewing for other positions, but hesitant about missing this offer. Any advice?
Only one flight from San Diego to New York. It was cancelled due to maintenance. Now I have to connect thru SFO. Landing in New York 6 hrs later than my original canceled flight. Alaska Airlines. Pts?

Went through 4 interviews for a position—they went with the other candidate! Disappointed but want to explore next opportunity. Wondering if anyone has an idea who’s hiring strategists or is about to?

Hi everyone- I'm looking for a new role in Client Retention / Buisness development and would appreciate your support. Thank You in advance for any connections, advise or opportunities you can offer.
Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
I'm a senior associate at an AmLaw 100 firm being considered for an non-equity partner position at another AmLaw 100 firm which is a bit further down the pole. There is a business development expection to eventually convert to equity; the expectation at the start is to assist with existing work. Jumping essentially let's me short track the road to partner. I'm unsure about the opportunity, which is essentially me starting over. Any wisdom on this situation? Thanks!
Anyone ever have an unused ticket that has been paid for by the company? Can you use these for personal travel? First time this has happened, so not sure, but I have a year to use it.
Has anyone changed jobs while on F1 OPT? How do you navigate the sponsorship issue? Do you tell them early in the process or late? Which firm/industry did you exit to?
Any insight into UBS titles/salaries? Recruiter said $170k is the max base salary for “Director” roles. Am I being low-balled? Would like to know more before they call me for in-person interviews.
Accenture 🐠, how does your firm handle working WFH in the current climate if you’re working from a home that’s not yours, i.e: parents house, different state? Is there a certain number of hours you’re allowed to charge outside your home state? (Im also assuming you guys fill out timesheets based on jurisdiction/location like D does)
My management brag about how little PTO they take - it makes me not look up to them but rather pity them & think I'm in the wrong firm. No one regrets the days they didn't work on their death bed.
Indian H1B folks - I had my H1B renewal in May 21. I want to travel to India, what’s the best way to get the visa stamped for return? Can I get the visa stamped in Canada? Or book an appointment with Mumbai consulate right now? Any specific documents required and tips for getting appointments? TIA 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.

Any fun family holiday ideas on the east coast (New England or NY preferably)? Looking for a mix of outdoor activities and sightseeing
Just got back from (safe) traveling - NY to Boston via Amtrak - and have my covid vaccine first dose tomorrow. Is there any risk to taking the vaccine while potentially carrying the virus (no idea of chances but I’m feeling perfectly fine)?
Got an offer at a startup with 130 base. I can choose between SF and SLC. I think I’d prefer SLC just because I’m scared about how expensive SF is. How is the gay life in SLC like especially for a 23 yo poc?
Throwing my had in the ring. I applied to Airtable, Netflix, and Stripe. If I get an offer, how long would I generally be able to wait for potential other offers to come in. I'm also applying to Proserve and KPMG as backups.
What do folks wear to work in the Big 4, specifically D? I am joining D soon and I was wondering if I need to buy formal wear. Currently at Amazon there’s no dress code so you can wear anything appropriate to work. Of course I am referring to when we all go back to office. Deloitte
