No, but I will point out that there was a pretty active thread on Kirkland as a whole a few weeks ago (I want to say like three or weeks ago).

Heard it's very busy.

Isn't that Kirkland everywhere? 😆 The hours my friends at Kirkland bill...

I recently obtained my MBA, and I've been eager to start working as an analyst. But I'm not sure where to begin. As an underwriter assistant, I now make $43,000. However, it's quite difficult to get by, and I'd love to start doing what I enjoy. Any suggestions?

Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it? Or is a better approach saying it’s the leadership in general creating a negative and toxic culture? How effective are these conversations really? Trying to assess if there’s any point in bringing this up. Obviously HR works for the company and an employee sharing their thoughts on the unsupportive, cold leaders could bite me in the long run.

I have 2 toddlers who are both in daycare & I am 7mos pregnant. Obviously, my toddlers aren’t vaccinated and neither are any of their friends at school. I am vaccinated, but have caught covid twice - the first time hospitalized me and was very very scary. I hosted my husbands anti-vax family for Christmas and caught it again then. My husband invited them to visit in the next few weeks after I said I was done hosting anti-vax ppl until after the baby comes. Is this the hill I should die on?

I am currently a manager. Accepted a position back in patient care for more money and a better schedule. Spoke to my RVP today who raved about my performance and was looking for feedback for the next manager. I do not treat patients and he was interested in how to best prep the next “non-clinical” manager as others in the region were fired or underperformed. I am wrong to be insulted that he did not offer a wage increase? Should I negotiate or run as I have been feeling undervalued?

Biglaw has completely shredded my confidence as a lawyer; I lateraled into biglaw from a smaller firm feeling keen and confident with some independent wins under my belt.

How do you find yourself again after big law? I don’t even know who I am anymore or what value I bring.

I recently lateraled to big law from a medium to large sized firm. I was generally very happy with the people I worked with at the previous firm and moderately happy with the work I was doing. I left because I was concerned about the viability of the firm, but I really hate my new firm. People aren’t as nice as I’m used to, no positive reinforcement, etc. My old firm told me I was always welcome to come back. How long do I wait to go back if that’s ultimately what I decided I wanted to do?

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
