Going up for promotion next year. Will it impact me to be on maternity leave for the last 2 months of the performance period or will the rest of the year speak for itself? To wait, or not to wait?!?
Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’

I've been in my current role for one month plus. I am ready to shift gears. The work is not challenging at all. Just filling out precedents and provided no guidance whatsoever.

Anyone getting a free day off for “mental health day”? My sisters work gave them a day to use for this purpose with deducting vaca/sick....she’s at an insurance co. I think it’s very appropriate.
Would appreciate some perspective: my SO, who I live with, is closely following coronavirus and it’s to a point where he’s asked that we wash our hand every time we get home, ctd:
Was hired by a Big 4’s M&A tax practice to start in the Summer away from home. But I just recently received a tremendous offer with a Big law tax group in my hometown and there is no way I cannot take it—I’m a JD/LLM.
