Hi, I am considering a BIE role at Amazon vs a Business Intelligence Analyst Role at TF. Right now, my priority is more around work life balance, and both roles are virtual/remote. I am concerned about work life balance with amazon, and would want something more stable. I think there may be offshore calls with TF, but overall have heard good things about wlb. Also , pay package isn't a big priority for me right now. Any advice or recommendations? Thermo Fisher Scientific

I recently lateraled (3rd hear) into a biglaw firm from a clerkship just before the start of the fiscal year (Oct. 1). I’ve been out on a few matters and have worked on some clients, but this will be the second month in a row I’ve billed under 150 hours/month. I’ve been told by partners and associates to enjoy the lull but I can’t help but feel like I’m not being productive. I also feel like if I ask the partner or seniors for more work again it will genuinely annoy them. What should I do?
