Every PM job posting I see in big tech/FAANG requires a MINIMUM of 5+ years experience, and a large portion even require 7+ years. Most of the associate/rotational PM roles require 3+ years and some require 5+. Yet it seems like every 24 year old I know that went to a target school is now a PM in big tech… am I the only one confused?
Hey folks - Indian passport holder here who just switched jobs. My previous employer had applied for my green card under EB-2 (2029 priority date). Given that the EB-3 backlog is shorter than EB-2, should my new employer apply under EB-3?

Additional Posts in Small Law / Solos
Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
Anyone have any experience with a business consultant that specializes in running a solo law firm? If so, how was that experience? Worth it?
Do you think going solo or joining a small firm is more sustainable long-term for WLB than Big Law?
Curious where people got their initial funding when starting a small practice. Did you just bootstrap it, or get a loan? If you got a business loan, any tips or suggestions?
Maybe this is the wrong bowl- but I’m going crazy with Microsoft word’s new “save a copy” feature. Is there any way to revert to the classic “save as” function?
I was offered a partnership at a small firm I used to work at before my current also small firm. We had come to terms and I expected to inform my current firm. To my surprise, my current firm made me a significant offer to stay. Not a partnership, but making more money and better benefits. I’m torn because the other firm is under the impression I’m coming in as a partner. But I can’t turn away from the significant offer I have from my current firm, where I enjoy working. Any advice/thoughts?
For those of you who practice in a partnership- how did you find your partner? Did you partner up with them after each being solo? Do you regret it? What should I look for in a partner if I want to start exploring that option?
I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?
Do you charge separately for prints, paper, mailing or is that calculated into your fee?
Plaintiff side question - comp is base plus % of fees. Firm has non equity split % with associate working on case. This normal for a non equity partner? Normal associate comp is full % when working with an equity partner.
I tested the waters (currently at $105 base)and got offered a position making $125k base +10% comm up to $500k in atty fees that goes to 15% after half a mil in fees. The work is in first party plaintiff (same field im in now). My boss is desperate. He offered to up my base from 105 to 150 and up my EOY bonus to 10k. 200k base salary guaranteed next year in writing if I stay & named partner. some equity the year after.l if I stay. He is a lunatic though. I’m in south Florida. Thoughts on moving?
Young solo here w/ a question about fees: 1. A local solo criminal defense attorney has offered to pay me to go and make appearances before the Court on some of her cases to make announcements. (For example, “ready when reached”). I’m open to doing this and this attorney is asking what my fee would be? Does anyone have thoughts or opinions on what a reasonable fee would be to do something like this? Hourly? Flat Fee? 2. I want to ensure this is ethical. I don’t see an issue with this. Thoughts?
Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.
Anyone use litigation financing to cover client costs? Or how is everyone covering client costs? Our caseload is increasing and now considering lines of credit from these litigation finance companies they say they have better rates compared to banks but I’d like to get some feedback from fellow fishes
I’m early into my career, thinking of leaving a midsize med mal firm to open a solo practice in business law but don’t have a ton experience in that area. Is this insane?
How do you deal with, handle, and control your very difficult clients? How do you tell your clients to shut the f*ck up and have you ever just threatened to file a motion to withdraw to shut them up? Where is the ‘ethical’ line?
Hi all, I have been practicing for 5 years (admitted in NY & NJ) and recently went in house. I just started a side business of writing blog posts for firms or solo practitioners. DM for more info!
