Following. I’m in the same boat but as a first year with my associate mentor.

I have mentees and have had a number of them over the years. I don’t meet with my mentees enough, but if I work with them I’m going to meet with them less because, in a sense, I’m meeting or talking to them almost daily. That being said, I don’t want anything off limits with my mentees and I want them to talk to me about everything. I probably can’t change the result, but I may give you a way to navigate the situation, counsel you to avoid it, or just lend an ear to hear you out on a situation I know about (you would be surprised how this can make you feel good).

Thank you, this is interesting. I think because we’ve all been remote this year, it’s very hit or miss in terms of frequency and a lot of times it becomes a formally set up discussion, which is not great. Not sure how to resolve that. Any ideas?

I speak with my formal mentor (a partner outside my office but through the firm’s official mentoring program) roughly once per month. My supervising partner (informally mentoring me) and I video chat at least a couple of times a week, but if I want to reach either of them, they’re just a text or e-mail away! As to team dynamics and/or bonus, I’d personally try to reach out to an older associate for advice on how to bring it up with my managing partner.

I’m happy at my current Big 4 company, love my project, feel fairly compensated (88k with 2 years experience). But actively looking for other roles.

Is there anything I could get out of having a conversation with the recruiter?
