My goal was to invest $20k in ETH when it was at $50. By the time I pulled the trigger, I invested $3,500 at an avg of $140. I'm an idiot.
Are there any moms who are EMs at McKinsey? What is life like for you there while raising your little ones? I have 3 young kids and a recruiter reached out to interview for EM and I’m definitely interested but need to know more about what it’s like being a working mom there. Thanks!

How basic do you make your MVP? I’m struggling to figure out which features to add now vs just showing basic functionality and adding them after traction. How do you draw the line?
Polestar 3 released. It’s ok, but $90k? I like the design of the Fisker more, which you can get for $50k with awd.
I had an interview at an investment bank for a senior associate role. I had three interviews, the last one with an MD. He asked me in the beginning of our interview who else I have spoken to so far and I mentioned the two other interviewers, one including the hiring manager. He mentioned he’s usually the rubber stamp and culture check fit and there are usually more rounds between my last and him. Sort of threw me initially but I think I recovered and it went okay? Have not heard for…

Let’s say you have an idea for a potential new side gig that would be an online platform. I’m really interested in developing a survey to see how people in general would feel about this potential idea. Has anyone ever made such a survey and have tips on how you would socialize it once it’s developed to have a random population of people respond to it?

Boss is gaslighting? Just experienced this for the first time - and would love to hear others’ experiences, too. For the past few years, my micromanager boss asked that I send them every draft of every contract to review, no matter how minor. In my performance review, when asked why I wasn’t promoted, they said that a reason was because I need to learn to stop sending them drafts to review! I said that I only did this because they asked for it, and they said they don’t remember saying that!
I went from meeting HR to the head of my department I’d be working for in 3 days. This seems fast. Does it to anyone else? It’s a super fast growing fin tech. I think they may just need bodies.

I received an offer I can’t turn down. My company had a few others leave recently, and my close counterpart is on vacation until October, so the GC and rest of the company will likely be in disarray after I leave.
Any advice on how to put in my 2 weeks? I’d prefer to leave on a good note and not a sour one…

I'm getting promoted and will have (an) employee/s. I have never been a manager before except discreet projects. Can anyone recommend an online, book, etc to teach me how to be a good boss? Panicking!
I recently joined a company after working for myself. I’m on hubs’s health insurance. We have no kids. It’s United healthcare. The company offers United as health insurance. What’s the best way to compare plans? I have not been in this situation before so apologies in advance if this is a dumb question.
Doing a remote interview tomorrow for an in-house position that I really want. Invite says "[company] is a startup, so a full suit is not necessary! Business casual attire is recommended." Like I said, I really want this job, and the idea of not wearing a suit is just weird to me
Should I still wear the suit or would it be counter productive?
I have been offered a position in-house at a $500M-$1B company, mid-sized city LCOL, 10 YOE in private practice. They offered me $120k, w opp for undefined discretionary bonus. No paid parental leave or 401(k) match & only 1 week PTO in first year (but claim they have discretion for more). Is there any way to salvage this? Salary guides suggest TC should be around $200-215k. I want to get my foot in the door but this seems crazy low.
My Legal department reports to HR. We used to report to the CEO. What’s the knee-jerk reaction to directly reporting to HR?
Anyone else’s legal dep’t report to someone other than the CEO, CFO or Board?
Had final round of interviews for an in-house position on Friday (the process had been going very quickly, one month from application to final round of interviews). Haven’t heard anything from company recruiter as of COB today (Tuesday)... time to panic, or is this normal?
Thoughts on these two positions: similar positions in terms of area of work. Both have largely similar hybrid schedule.
1 - Public F1000 that has been around longer. Bigger immediate team (more people above and below the proposed role - sounds like more support?).
2 - Company recently went public, so a lot of processes still need to be created. Smaller team (report directly to GC; and fewer people below to support the proposed role). Pay is more than No.1.

You need credits to keep your license. Seems like a nonissue to me.
Not sure why that would be an issue. I always complete CLEs “on the clock” though I’m not really sure what that phrase means for lawyers—aren’t we always on the clock. 😂 I should also note that I’ve never had non-attorneys question it. Our accounting team needs continuing education credits too, etc.
Total non-issue as long as the CLE is related to the work you do in-house and it doesn't take priority over other work. Maintaining your license is a necessary part of your job. Many companies will even pay for a reasonable amount of CLEs
Goodness NO. Maintaining your license is part of your Job! And most free CLE occurs during work hours. Of course take advantage of it. Completely justified. Of course crucial work meetings take priority, but otherwise your clients should be completely on board. Grrrr.
I’ve now worked in-house for two companies, and this has never been an issue. In my current role, I’m the only in-house, and the leadership team is very supportive and interested in what I’ve learned.
This should be part of your regular workload and the company should pay for cle expenses.
Not even a question. It’s needed for your license.
