A6, are people still talking about these issues within your firm and if so what’s the predominant view?

At my firm, even people who were about to be fired got a stay of execution because they really didn’t let anyone go and these dudes feel they can openly brag about letting support staff go no problem?

Just moved from a big firm to a regional firm. Senior associate level. The big firm has a lot of work but also lot of corporate support. The new firm has a lot of real estate work but feeling difficult to break in. Been emailing partners for work - got very polite response but have nothing substantial coming. Hours are important here too. What should I do? I’m at a point that I can turn any docs and lead a deal but have a feeling that partners here are way more hands on than my previous firm

I have been at the current hospital I work at in administration for about 11 years now. I am treated great, love the people and love the hours. They allow me to really create my own schedule based on my needs and have taken great care of me over the past 11 years. The only problem is that our CEO has stated that we will never be a company that gives yearly raises, merit based or cost of living. I have been offered another job with a competing hospital but scared to leave. Advise?
