Are there any firms you recommend Black lawyers avoid? I’m trying not to enter a toxic environment in order to protect my mental health.
I’ve worked the last nine years for my state legislature as an attorney analyst, drafting and analyzing proposed legislation. I’ve primarily worked on health professional regulations. Next year, I will apply for student loans forgiveness under the public service program and would like a change. I know others who have gone into lobbying/government relations, but I would like to find other options to pursue. I’ve never done billable work so not sure if law firm life is for me. Any suggestions?

Did your salary freeze when you went on mat leave? (I.e. if you got a raise/promotion while on mat leave, it’s not effective until after you come back to work). I heard this has to do with short-term-disability insurance companies. They only pay your salary/rate at the time you start leave. But I feel like the employer should make up for the difference. I mean, why do you have to be paid less just because you are on mat leave. Thoughts?
Guys can you please let me know how much premium is for parental insurance in Capgemini. Currently paying 35 k in oracle. Is it wise to take that policy along with me when i quit oracle or Capgemini got better policy
I feel like crying because of a micromanager I am working under. He has called me 4 times today within 2 hours. To confirm that I’ve received his emails. I always reply/acknowledge right away when he asks for a task to be completed. I feel so under the microscope even though I’m supposedly “delivering quality” work. I can’t even cry since I’m facilitating a meeting in 15 minutes. It’s taking such a toll on my mental health and happiness.

Is it considered unprofessional to send an email instead of a formal letter? Specifically, my firm has been retained by a title insurance company to obtain an easement for an insured property. Our first step is to reach out to the neighbor to ask them to grant the easement directly. The neighbor is a realtor and I easily found his email address online - I went to draft an email to him but found myself wondering if it’s unprofessional to send an email rather than formal letter. Thoughts?

Has anyone successfully transitioned from working in a public health nonprofit to a consulting role that is within healthcare/public sector/federal? I know some of the larger firms like Deloitte, Accenture Federal, and Guidehouse often have public health and healthcare related roles.

Long story short, I have a bachelors in Public Health/Health Science, and no idea what to do with it. I currently am contracted with a disabilities agency in the vocational services side of things, working for $20/hr with no benefits. I realize this is a very low paying job, but I do not know the extent of the career options with the degree I have. I’d like to ask, what would be the highest paying/most rewarding career options for me?
