Corporate lawyers in that office are quality people. They do some M&A but not exclusively.

Discussed frequently. WSGR isn't exactly known for its culture, go to Fenwick or Cooley instead if feasible

Is anywhere m&a known for its culture? If you want to do tech M&A it’s the right work.

Cooley.... Fenwick....

Hello all, how can we approach the gender pay gap at our respective employers? I know I’ve mentioned it before but it seems to make Culture & Talent, as well as Legal cringe. I don’t expect them to publish salaries, nor do I wish this, I just want to see what steps we can take to make our voices heard. Let’s open the floor up for ideas and suggestions!!

Lately, a lot of recruiters have been reaching out. I'm mostly happy in my role and w/my company (no longer w/Edelman), but one job caught my eye with a huge salary and title bump at a comparable company, culture and work wise. Interviews are going well - I'm torn about leaving - things are good now but some extra $$ for what seems like a similar experience seems like a no-brainer. Yet, I feel sad about potentially leaving my current company. Anyone have a similar experience? What happened?

Has anyone ever successfully restored their relationship after infidelity? I almost always see a default “leave” when someone cheats. Interestingly, I grew up in an environment where cheating was and is normalised. It’s not a “leave” type of thing where I’m from. I don’t like it, but just wondering why this is regarded as a cardinal sin in western culture?

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

I feel like I have to be eating basically nothing to be at a skinny weight. I’ve achieved this a few times (the weight, unintentionally through stress etc) but it’s so unsustainable. I eat healthy, workout and don’t have any health issues. I am definitely average weight and by no means “overweight” but I don’t get why it’s so hard to stay at my perfect weight... anyone else have this issue?
