Exhausted from all the linked lists I had to reverse this week.
So they recently upped the quota of linked lists we need to reverse this month to 56 (a 34% increase!) and I'm not sure my team can keep up the pace. We're working as fast as we can but pointing the nexts takes a lot of focus, and we're just worried the higher ups are sacrificing the quality of these linked lists for quantity.
What should I do???
Hey nurses, did you become a CNA first? Or go straight into a nursing program? My cousin wants to become a nurse and, I'm going to be totally frank here, I don't think he can hack it. I recommended that he maybe do his CNA first to get a taste for it, but he's insisting he's prepared to nursing. Part of me is worried because a lottttt of people in my cohort in school were regularly partying and doing hard subs (was this the same for others??), and my cousin is susceptible to peer pressure.

I cannot decide between two offers at good firms. One offer is financially much better but is “lower” on the ranking list (to the extent that even matters). The other firm came up but still not mathematically the same. The work is the same except they are on opposite sides for the most part. What to do?

Considering possible relocation to Atlanta for family reasons. Anyone know a good recruiter who would give me a lay of the big law land?
Cahill Gordon announced earlier today. Inappropriately only commended the efforts of mid-levels and senior associates in the email and noted they had to deal with challenging circumstances. They gave mid-levels and seniors above market bonuses. As if they partners couldn’t be clearer they want juniors to leave. Bye Felicia.

Depends on how your firm is set up. If there is a pro bono attorney in the firm, go to them. Do not take on so much pro bono that you don’t have time for billable work when it comes back.
Thank you for advice
I’m a corporate attorney and do probably 150+ hours per year of pro bono. We have a PB attorney, but honestly a lot of it has to be self driven. Here are some opportunities that I’ve had the chance to do:
- run a few dozen small business matters (e.g., helping a small business with a lease, formation of an LLC, etc.). Your city likely has a small business legal clinic, or a local law school might.
- go to veteran legal clinic to help them with VA benefits, wills, etc.
- some basic refugee work.
- I’m basically outside general counsel to a few small charities in my city and just help them with whatever items come down the pike. For example, I just looked over a contract for a new roof for a school in my area.
Is 150 a lot? I’m over 350 this year…
Ha, no it’s not. Can always do more. Providing context
This is totally firm dependent
