SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!

Sorry to hear that! Those comments are so thoughtless. I hope you’re able to find another job soon.


I really hope that colleagues start standing up against all of these types of remarks. Everyone has their own priorities and a different home situation!


Ugh I am so sorry to hear that. Please do not apologize for venting. I think we have all been there, atleast I know I have. It is definately a mans world and we are all just living in it.


You don't have to put up with any of that. I hope you are able to free yourself of these attacks (ignoring them, leaving the toxic environment, speaking up, whatever suits you)

Any information would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.


I work at a tech law boutique in Colorado. We only do commercial transactions and M&A. We’re hiring attorneys with 3+ years of experience. Must be barred or willing to be barred in Colorado.

This is truly a “lifestyle” firm. My benefits are amazing, my hours requirement is only 1500/year, and the pay really good. If you bill more than the minimum, you’re rewarded extremely well for it.

I would love to work with more POC. If you think you might be a good fit, send me a DM 🤓

Hi everyone! Story followed by question: So I am 22 weeks pregnant and just got word today that I can expect a formal offer letter for a new job by Friday. I have my first intro call tomorrow with the VP (who I know on a somewhat personal level). How do I tell them I’m pregnant? I want to be open and straight forward but now I feel like I am dropping a huge bomb on them and almost feel guilty for not telling them before? Maybe it’s the hormones but any advice would be super helpful!


How do I change my mindset to be more positive? Feels like I start my days in a decent mood and within an hour or two of working I’m in the worst mood. Every client email seems to annoy me and when I look at my pic on Teams I visually looks crabby all the time and act it to. 🤦🏻‍♂️ I’m only 28, far too young to be like this.


General PSA for whoever has Blue Cross/Anthem health insurance: Northside (which covers a ton of ATL providers) looks like they will no longer be accepting that insurance in the new calendar year due to contract issues, so you may want to reconsider health insurance / providers if you still have the time with open enrollment.
Just found out today and have no clue if I should change insurance or change doctors… the struggle is real.
