How do you talk to junior associate about biglaw work expectations without sounding like a jerk? He (first year) was surprised we worked on MLK day when someone assigned him something to do then. I too asked him to take on assignment over weekend. Simple 30 min to an hour job. He said he was out hanging with family. I totally respect work life balance (I did work to cover for him). But I do wanna let him know it’s not a 9 to 5 before he acts so nonchalant toward a partner who might not get it.

I don't know if I need job hunt advice or a place to vent - or both. I have been with my company for a year and a half and every month has gotten more stressful than the last. My hours have been consistently long, with little to no breaks in calls during the day to get my work done (or eat). My managers frequently work weekends and join calls even when they are on PTO. The work itself is boring. I am applying for product management roles and am anxiously waiting to hear back about interviews.

What’s your desired or expected salary increase when you join another company? Assume next level promotion in position/title. What’s reasonable? 10%, 20% or more? A colleague felt 20% wasn’t enough to jump ship for the added responsibility. What are your thoughts? What would make you pause or immediately sign up? Assume vacation and benefits on par.

Had a recruiter from a popular unicorn company reach back out after I interviewed with them earlier this year for a different team. The new team seems to like me and I’m being fast tracked through the process (only 2 interviews instead of 3 and all within a week). The only problem is that if I get an offer, the start date will likely be 11/15. I already have a 2 week vacation planned and I’d be screwing myself out of EOY bonus if I start 12/01. Role is MM, am I too junior to ask for a Jan start?

Some partners are cool AF, but how are some of them full grown adults with no lives?? Clients not responding to your repeated emails. They’re probably enjoying their own weekend. No real deadline. Why are you incessantly following up just so you can unnecessarily blow up your own team’s weekend?? Go out and find something better to do on a Saturday!

Would you feel comfortable telling HR that your service line’s culture sucks and name the individuals who cause it? Or is a better approach saying it’s the leadership in general creating a negative and toxic culture? How effective are these conversations really? Trying to assess if there’s any point in bringing this up. Obviously HR works for the company and an employee sharing their thoughts on the unsupportive, cold leaders could bite me in the long run.

Has anyone been told this? I.e., that since you’re a “professional” and have had good grades you don’t have ADHD? I just feel it’s a bit unfair since I had to work myself to the bone just to stay focused and understand the material.
