I am scheduled to join Accenture on 3rd Nov but there're some queries regarding my offer letter for which am trying to reach the recruiter from last couple of days but she's not responding. Any idea what to do as it's quite urgent.
Was on a work call once and someone unmuted. We all heard “If you like PornHub, then you’ll love PornHub Live” and there was an awkward moment of quiet and then the meeting proceeded as usual. We know who it was because there was only guy on the call alone. The rest of us were in offices, in conference rooms, together. My boss was on the call (it wasn’t him doing it). What would you have done/said either during or after the call to your team? Anything? Or best to let it go? He did nothing.
Can anybody let me know how much time it will take to deliver feedback/update after ED round from PwC ????
My ED round has been completed 2 days back. PwC PwC India Pwc AC
If you've had kids - how far along were you when you told your counselor, partners, and team?

Who else is going to the Howard WAS conference?
Someone on my team sent an OOO for Wednesday - Friday of thanksgiving week.... l o l the fact this associate felt it was necessary to do this is sad on the firm culture/biglaw (the associate is an awesome person / coworker btw)

I don’t agree nor do I disagree w/abortion. I don’t have children and still don’t know if I want any, but what I do believe is women should have the choice to make a decision that works best for them and their situation. These constant constraints upon women, that seem to change with changing perspectives, be it women in the domestic realm, women in pants or dresses, AA women in our hairstyles)—should not be decisions left to the court. Cont.
Ladies: I’m considering writing an article regarding women in the law and was wondering what kind of topics or issues that you all would be interested in reading about.
Thoughts on vacations: is it unrealistic to be left alone while you’re on vacation, even if it’s planned well in advance? Starting to feel like time away is impossible & slowly creeping into burnout
Did any of you meet your SO at a later age in life? 29 now and going through a breakup. I know it can be pretty tough to meet a good person you truly connect with.
Hi, I am starting as an associate in a big law firm this fall and I’m 25. I’ve been thinking lately about freezing my eggs because I don’t want to have kids for a while, and I know that fertility struggles are more common the later you decide to try. I am thinking to do this around when I’m 27/28. Does anyone have experience working while freezing eggs/recs for someone I could consult with about this in NYC?
Does anyone buy second hand clothes for their kids? Half of the clothes I get for my kids (toddlers now) are second hand. My parents found out and they are shocked that “someone that makes six figures would buy second hand clothes.” They bring up the fact that they were lower income and would always buy me new clothes. Of course I could never pick my own clothes since they’d get me the cheapest “new clothes” from the clearance bins when I wouldn’t have cared if I wore second hand clothes. Part2
Does anyone have non-natural colored hair (i.e. pink, green)? If so, could you describe the color, and what the reactions have been like?
Just found out my firm is paying a female law clerk 20-30% less than male peers. What would you do?
She came to me for solidarity and strategy. I'm frankly shocked. She is grossly underpaid and has heard crickets since she asked for a raise four weeks ago. I'm so mad I want to tear the place down, but I want to help her best position herself for a bright future. She's studying for the bar RN and does not need this. This makes me rethink staying at the firm myself. Ugh.
Good Morning, everyone! I am a first year associate at a small law firm. Approximately 30 attorneys. I currently have two male attorneys that are my mentors and 3 support staff. I would love some ideas on Christmas gifts. I don’t know whether I should gift my mentors, or if it’s inappropriate or unnecessary. Any advice and suggestions on gifts would be much appreciated. Thank you and happy holidays, everyone!
When a prior attorney has planted seeds (likely out of fear as you were out-preforming her) with the executives, what do you do when you finally realize that’s the exact reason you’ve only been nominally promoted? I’m teetering between stay (we have flexibility with remote and I’m a single mom) or two birds (no stone, the flipping birds) and making a bunch more money (not guaranteed I will be as available to my child).
I just had my annual review which was given by my partner and a counsel. For some reason which I don’t understand, the counsel (who I considered a mentor up until then) bashed my work. I was so stunned that I wasn’t able to defend myself. I am now debating to talk to the partner about her behavior towards me, especially since she has already crossed a line in the recent past: she forced me to go to a hearing with her though she told me her husband had Covid and pleaded without mask with fever.
Just need to vent. I Learned the hard way that your coworkers and partners are not your friends. They’re only friendly when it serves them. I was so close with some of the partners at my firm, they’d come to events with my non work friends, were supportive of major life changes and would keep in touch daily. Ever since giving notice, they’ve been giving me the cold shoulder and it hurts. I can’t wait to get out of here. My only regret is staying here as long as I did and wasting time.
What is a “more acceptable age” for a career change? I’m almost 30 and want to go back to school for a master in CS. Got discharged by my bf, who suggested me to do something legal related (like tax law) due to my past legal experience. He had a valid point. But I’ve been having bad experiences working at law firms (2 firms in less than 3 years), so really don’t know what to expect... any advice?
Low billable, low pressure work in patent lit, tech trans or privacy law? Slowly realizing that as my boys get older, the money isn’t worth what I’m missing out on. Currently a patent litigation associate with lots of hearing, depo and trial experience (I’ve appeared on my own at hearings/depos) at a well respected firm. Have my CIPM and CIPP/US /E and /C. Just feeling the burn out; 2000 hours of billables a year just isn’t sustainable for me long term. Money isn’t a huge issue.
What are your thoughts about non-lobe piercings in biglaw? I currently have a couple of very discrete, minimalist cartilage piercings (conch, helix, and forward helix). I’d like to add a couple more small pieces (rook and/or tragus). Where are we now with piercings in biglaw? For context, I’m in IP lit.
Currently drowning at work with no reprieve in sight. I'm used to billing crazy hours, but this year I started a new job which has been overwhelming even for me. I've worked every weekend and late nights almost every day the entire year this far. I think about quitting every day, but am worried about how difficult it will be to find another job when not employed, and having just started a new job in January. Any tips?
I’m thinking about leaving my government job for a matrimonial law firm. I had a baby in January & my husband’s job was hit particularly hard by the pandemic (100% commission based & I was already earning more than him). I am enticed by the compensation & have been unhappy with certain aspects of my govt job lately. But I’m also nervous about billables & firm life (I was a matrimonial lawyer 5+ years ago). Mostly I want to provide for my baby girl & not be stressed financially. Advice? Thoughts?
Does anyone else cry at work? How have you stopped yourself from this. I feel like my male colleagues never do but I get so emotional when I receive bad feedback or get overwhelmed.
I have only met my boyfriends while in school (undergrad, law school) now that I’m single and outside of school, I just don’t want to do apps. Anyone in this boat of wanting to get out there but not be on a dating app?
