Have a light, but somewhat interesting tv show on in the background. Think: reality tv.

For me, it has to be completely nonvisual like music or a podcast. And reminding myself I chose to do this to myself...

I can only get through it if I have the tv on in the background, but it has to be a show you’ve watched enough times that you can sort of tune in and out as necessary. I’ve watched The West Wing a billion times, so that’s what I always rewatch when I have doc review.

Have an opportunity to join a new part of our business. It involves a title bump, 15-20% increase in total comp, and a more high profile area in the business. Skillset is great to take with me when i leave my current corporate gig. Cons are it’s def going to be inferior wlb (probably by 5 hours a day at least) and less friendly team. Worth it?

How common is it for juniors to blow deadlines?
I see tons of posts about the worst things a young associate can do, but is it really that common to make glaring errors repeatedly? Are they communicating and asking for more time or simply ghosting people? What types of smaller errors are mid-levels so used to seeing that they just write it off as learning, especially when it comes to drafting and to details? I guess I’m just curious about the norm across firms.

Man this Bowl is filled with some angry mid-levels. We get it, this job was hard for you, but it is for juniors now, too. Stop punching down.

I don’t think the juniors are entitled, they just want to share in their firms’ wealth. Surely any salary increases for the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would easily pay for themselves through billable hours.
