I switched a while ago because I didn’t like the work. It was very monotonous and routine. But depending what subset of real estate you go into you’ll do title work, drafting and reviewing PSAs, maybe do loan documents, etc.

How soon is too soon to quit a job? I took what seemed like a great offer, with competitive pay, a hybrid schedule, and 15% travel. However, I’m about 1.5 months in and the job is miserable. I’m working 50 hour weeks with no breaks to keep up with the demand, there is minimal training or support, I can’t work hybrid yet, I get 24/7 phone calls, and they’ve asked me to travel once a month for the remainder of the year. At this point, I’m only staying for fear of how it will look on my resume.

I got to the last round of a hiring process at a YC-backed Series A startup. I was told 4 people made it to this round, and one of the topics for discussion is salary, which I was already asked about on the application and in the first round.

Are they going to hire the person willing to work for the least amount of money?! I sure hope not. I know my first round interviewer socially and asked him, and he said he didn't know (I believe him). They have 6 employees now, hiring their first marketer.

I don’t get all the whining.

We’re so freaking privileged.

We make 8-10 times less what partners make at the peak of their careers, at entry level, sitting in a lukewarm office 3x a week.

Sure, the 80 hour weeks are long, but on top of our massive 5 figure salaries after taxes & loan payments, we get $25 a month off at Equinox, free Costco snacks, etc.

The single partner who has to leave their kids to sleep at their exes’ house because they have to micromanage their staff gets to complain.

When the other associate(s) staffed on the same deal are being very competitive and pulling gunner on you (e.g., always available when partner emails 11pm, 2am or 4am and some occasional backstabbing on docs working together), do you play the same game? It’s tiring to seek for external validation but concerning to be compared against that attitude. Do you play short or long game?

Any thoughts on how working as a lawyer on corporate VC investments differs from general M&A?

I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog.

People in power: take note.
