Lifetime prod co producer here, considering a jump directly to a BRAND - never been with an agency as either freelance or in-house, so it’s foreign terrain. Any pros / cons worth sharing? And most importantly - salary and benefits that are typical when going in-house? Thank you!!
How have you broke the news to your boss that you’re looking to make a career change and leave the practice? I am the Sr. Paralegal at my firm (7+ years) and work for a solo practitioner in a very busy wage & hour class action practice. We have one other legal assistant and law clerk. I don’t want to burn bridges, but after seeing how he gave the cold shoulder to his paralegal of 10+ years after going on maternity leave and never coming back, I don’t see how I can’t expect the same treatment.
Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.
What’s the sense of becoming a partner at a larger firm where you can’t even really make business decisions since there are so many partners higher than you? I’ve wanted start my own business since I was about 5 years old and can’t wrap my head around what the draw to partner is outside of the high pay. Any insight?

I’ve been consistently sleeping between 10-11 hours/day. Not sure I fell into this habit since my layoff, or what. Recently got my MMJ card and do 613mg CBD/35mgTHC before bed, which is making me sleep really good. This started December/January during unemployment. Should I be concerned?
I'm applying for an LLC mortgage for a rental property and the bank is requiring ALL utility bills from the past year in order to verify expenses, which I have to request from the seller...is this normal? Seems like overkill, esp since the rental income is 50% higher than total expenses

What made you realize your LTR was finally over?
As a manager, I sometimes feel that I don’t have a lot of work. My seniors and staff are really high performers so I can relax a little bit. Is this feeling normal? I spend about half the day work and the other half just messing around doing my own stuff. I do feel guilty about it. Is this normal?
I. Hate. Setting. Goals. 🙃
I hate the statement of cash flows
I can’t stand working with self proclaimed “straight shooters”. You’re not just being frank, you have a character flaw and lack empathy.
I want to retire and im only 31 smh.
Ladiessss how do you deal with PMS? I’ve started to get migraines every month and I know plenty of women who have it WAY worse. But it amazes me that it never comes up in the workplace, regardless of the stigma, because it can greatly impact women’s well-being (I’ve had to miss work a few times). And men, would it make you uncomfortable if a woman missed 1-2 days of work a month b/c of her period?
Hired cleaner recommended through the Neighborhood app. She came for the first couple of cleanings and did a great job. Subsequent cleanings, she sent other people and today, instead of two adults, the replacement cleaner brought her 13-year-old daughter. Am extremely uncomfortable, not just because of the bate and switch but more so because of child labor laws. I know these individuals can probably use the money, what is the right thing to do?
I’m very spiteful and (nice nasty ) as my mom calls it .. and I just am unbothered by being this way.

I can’t remember any of the sex I’ve had, even the sober ones. Very small parts of it, but no flashbacks or worthy moments. Is this pretty normal? When past hookups come back months later looking for another round I have barely any recollection.
I wait for the day someone tries to call me out for upcharging their venmo request. So I can drop them a link to my kickass google sheet that includes an uploaded picture of the receipt as backup 😈

I don’t understand why Japanese food has been so elevated in status compared to Chinese, Indian, Thai. It looks pretty but honestly is overall pretty bland.
