I posted this in the Anti-Racist bowl, but this bears repeating for the general public. It is ABSOLUTELY our JOBS to teach kids when there is some form of bias afoot. As an English teacher, this is the crap I am all over. To wit: Each of these posts, a mere TWO DAYS APART, was in reference to players celebrating on the field. One was a 21-year-old white player, the other a 17-year-old Dominican Republic player. I'll let you guess which is about which. And they say, “implicit bias is a myth!” 🤨
Hey everyone! I recently graduated this past December and started my current role January 24th. Just this morning I had a recruiter from Meta reach back out to me about a role I applied too last month. Should i schedule an interview with the recruiter? What if it goes well? Would it look bad if I quit my current position to take this role if I end up getting an offer? One reason I would want to switch is because the pay would most likely be a lot higher at Meta then in my current position.

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?

Have you had to change your start date after accepting an offer and how did it go? I told them I need to give 30 day notice and so I set my start date (incorrectly) assuming the background check and drug screen would take a few days to clear. However, the drug screen is now taking over a week and a half (still not finished, maybe tomorrow). Apparently things are much slower due to staffing issues and labs are backed up. It’s cutting into my 30 day notice significantly. Thoughts?

Recently moved in-house and struggling with how to document my contributions (keep a “brag list” if you will) for purposes of review season and eventual bonus/promotion/raise discussions. At a firm it was fairly easy to point to high billables, high profile deals, praise from particular partners or clients. Now I’m struggling because my work is so….day to day. Mostly negotiating typical sales contracts. Very few opportunities for visibility or high profile contributions if that makes sense.
Any in-house attorneys at a PE/VC fund that can provide insight into how carried interest works? It seems like a bit of a black box and specific to a given fund, but even a description of the low level mechanics (vesting, relative %, etc) would be super helpful!

I didn’t learn that much on the business side and I love reading, so seems like a good idea to relax while also preparing a bit.
Looking for advice on dealing with a boss who is extremely difficult to work for. For example, my colleague has worked entirely remotely since COVID hit in March. She had planned to make 2 trips out to her family out of state during the holidays (for Thanksgiving & Christmas) but recently requested to stay during the interim, when it looked like her apartment might be under voluntary evacuation due to wildfires. Said colleague lives alone and found it beneficial to be around family (cont below)
How has COVID affected your workload, if at all? My group has a lot more work to do, and less resources with which to do it. But I don't worry about layoffs, so overall I'm happy to be where I am.
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 co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?

I am in the exact same scenario but it has slowly improved. My CFO also wanted to review all matters. Since I am the only attorney, I essentially overloaded his inbox with legal issues that needed review so he realized that he did not have the time to review everything so I keep a shared OneNote folder that he can see what I am working on without the need to micro manage.
There is still the issue of some legal matters that he will go directly to outside counsel so I further developed the rapport with outside counsel such that they cc’d me on any correspondence that I am not initiating so at least I am in the loop. It was a bit dicey during COVID-19 as there was a lot going behind my back but mostly due to the nature of the beast (e.g. not knowing how to counsel the business in uncertain times).
Thank you very much for your experience!
I think it is a great solution the one related to getting involved with the outside counsel so they are the ones keeping you on the loop.
I didn't mention but I also did the same with our local attorneys for main HQ and now I'm on top of local matters, haven't achieved that level of confidence with our external counsel for our branches in other countries but will surely work on that matter.
Thank you very much again!!
Following. And also glad I’m not alone in these dilemmas.
Uh, have you chatted with the CFO about this? The CEO? Are you the only lawyer? Is mitigating risk your job? Think about whether this works fir you ethically and whether you can provide competent counsel.
Also, set up a 3x/week standing 1:1 with CFO so he has time to loop you.
There is no reason this could not be both really. If your face time is limited, especially in light of COVID-19, it could be a good use of time to discuss the less task-oriented discussion points such as “big picture” topics. That is also when you have an opportunity to show your eagerness to think strategically for the business.
