So the police were called to my school yesterday to escort one of my former students off campus and it left me traumatized. I cried in the bathroom for 10 minutes. The criminalization of kids is wrong
How can one recover their career when being transitioned out for "low performance"? Seems they are trying to hide covid-related layoffs with an increase in "performance management" layoffs.
What is your firm doing to develop and retain Latino and African American leaders/partners? Or is it not seen as a priority to have ethnic diversity at this level?

EDNY Attorney Admissions- After submission of documents (Cert of Good Standing, Petition for Attorney Admission and Sponsoring Affidavit), there is a requirement to "Appear on the date of the hearing with the sponsoring attorney". Does anyone know whether the admission hearings are still live at the court? I know many hearings are online (e.g., Zoom) because of Covid-19 concerns. I need to coordinate with sponsoring attorney. Thanks.

We had evaluations and normally we have annual raises. I think my salary is under market value at $68k (plus OT) in Los Angeles (5 years of experience). I was told I am one of the top employees in the firm. When I asked about a raise, I was told “when you think about it at your level 5k to 10k doesn’t really matter it’s the long term goal that matters”. What would be your response to that, to a partner who is making 500-600k a year?
How do you decide to allocate your savings? I'm maxing out 401k and IRA, but that leaves relatively little (though a still significant amount) for personal brokerage and cash savings. I already have more than enough for an emergency fund. IDK if I'll live in my area long term so idk about a down payment for a place, and I have a vehicle, so no big purchases on the horizon. No debt. Yet this allocation just feels pretty imbalanced.
Anyone able to help out and give any referrals to industry (FAANG or any others)? Looking to spend more time with the family due to baby and not miss out on anything at home! Please feel free to DM!
