I’m in-house counsel with 6 years of experience doing retail leasing and PSAs. I was wondering if anyone has made extra money by offering leasing/PSA review/negotiations on the side? Where did you post? Did you get insurance? We are drowning in bills and have some time for extra hours outside of my 9-5.
Have been dating SO for over a year. Amazing person (thoughtful, kind, supportive) but couple blockers 1) I don’t know if I’m ready to settle down yet (30y/o) 2) We’re on different financial paths (have self made NW close to $1M vs $0); this puts constraints on trying to buy a place
I feel bad for feeling this way but wondering if these are valid blockers?
ACN 🐠 - a friend referred me to a PLM position, and a recruiter reached out. Only problem is I have no interest in the position I was referred to.

I hope I find fellow-writer compatriots here who hate buzzwords as much as I do. Verbnouns like "The Ask" and current trendy word "unpack" make me imagine murder sprees. It's a writer thing right?

and has been opened for a while
2. A specialized role that has a few candidates

Just failed on an easy analysis. Can’t deal with having so tight timelines for accurate analysis plus everything else on my plate. How do you deal with failure? I feel like I will never make it
Anyone else get so anxious that you sounded stupid or dumb or awkward after a work social event? Wasn’t even drunk just feel like I sounded stupid 😞 around newer colleagues / a manager who I really respect and like working with
This sounds like a weird thing to bring up here, but the only thing I’m doing well at is work.
At home...I struggle to do simple things like clean, do my laundry, etc. I’ve even gone as far as offing same day clothes and underwear to avoid my laundry. Does anyone else struggle with this? And how have you gotten yourself out of this funk? It really does kind of look like an episode of hoarders in here.
So I moved to PwC a couples of months ago from uncle D and things here are so slow... the slowness is causing me have so much anxiety/ depression... also, why the f don’t seniors or superiors take any effort to make a team member feel welcomed 😭😭 (I pushed a ton to get out there, but with little reciprocation, it’s getting difficult)
Let’s use this bowl to also encourage and let others see there is hope. I have been in the deepest darkest pit and wanted to end it all. I was able to work through this with the right support system
Depression and anxiety were affecting my job and so I told my counselor and HR lead. I took a leave of absence (short term disability). I returned and was laid off due to “no path forward” not due to performance. I generally have good performance reviews though only an average performance on my last project. Can I sue for wrongful termination due to the firm’s treatment of my disability?
Dreading work tomorrow. I’m ready to just up and leave. But I have nothing lined up. I’m just over everything and feeling like I’m a failure or that I’m not good enough 😔
I am so anxious and distraught as I write this, I am not sure where else to look. I recently started seeing someone and fell deep and hard into love with her. I come to find that her ex is a bodybuilder on Instagram with over a million followers. I have been confident and secure my whole life but just the thought of this guy having been her ex destroys me. I know I’m probably not healthy for thinking this way or focusing on the past, but I don’t know what else to think.

Feeling fairly down as I started this job recently and have no idea what I’m doing. Recently really connected with a guy and now it’s on loose footing, and it’s causing me insecurities. 😭
Do any Staff feel their Seniors are rude via Teams chat? The questions are pertaining to the work I completed, but if they just gave me a call I could answer all their questions. Feels like they’re very negative and looking for the worst parts of my work.
What’s a good switch game?
I really think I need to see a therapist but they are being overworked and my issues don’t feel worth it if it means adding that much more to someone else’s plate. I just don’t want to feel guilty about getting help. Any suggestions how to overcome that feeling?
