Anyone else who feels that they want to step into the more analytical/executive/operational/financial side of business?

I feel that as a corporate lawyer, you’re mostly doing the necessary details to carry out someone else’s decisions (= EG the boring part of business). The most "strategic" advice you give is perhaps advising on a choice between transaction models.

Would only a law degree and big law transactional experience be sufficient to go into more traditional business roles?

Just got an offer for 75k for a Senior Visual Designer. This will be largely web interface design, as well as some branding and potentially some Elementor dev work. The range I asked was 70-90k but it seems the base rate for a role like this is 80k. Do I counter (80 or 85k) or happily accept? It will be a 20k pay raise from where I am coming from :)

Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10%

Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business

The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly?

Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
