Currently working full time for a partner firm in India as integration consultant. Is it allowed to work as a freelancer to support other customer workday related work for some extra income per month. Kindly advice fishes?
Looking to get into customer success and having some interviews but never actually get the offer. I have a few years on the support/consulting side at a smaller company and some business development now with SAP.. any advice on how to make something stick or companies to apply to? not sure if there are any recommended certifications or courses that could help me. Thought it would be somewhat easier with my background but so far no luck.
REALLY get along with my current team, got a verbal offer that I'll take once they find me a role. Would it be wrong if I wanted to give my lead a 4 weeks heads up that I plan on leaving soon? Cont.
Advice needed! I have been hustling for months. My partner and I have been offered two good freelance jobs (1-2 months). Both from agencies that we’ve been going back and forth with about other opportunities that fell through.
Both are going to take a couple of days to confirm. Do I say yes to both for now until one confirms? I am not trying to play them off against each other. I just don’t want to refuse one and be left with nothing. What is the normal protocol to avoid burning bridges?
Wow, today is the first time I’ve thrown up from work anxiety. 😂 When you get assigned what you’re not booked to.
Avoiding team dinners and happy hours because of social anxiety but feeling guilty for missing out on an opportunity to network. Anyone else struggling with this?
I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!
What are current IT risk salaries or where will I find them?
A senior consultant /manager. A city like Austin perhaps?

Managing attorneys in small firms - how much do you make?
I'm in South Florida. Currently a 6 year associate at a small firm (~12 attorneys, 55 staff). Making a move towards Managing Attorney position that they are considering hiring from outside the firm for. I'm going to make the case that they should promote from within and give me the position. I'm objectively a good candidate for it. Question is... what's a good salary for that position? What do you make? Thanks.
How do you deal with, handle, and control your very difficult clients? How do you tell your clients to shut the f*ck up and have you ever just threatened to file a motion to withdraw to shut them up? Where is the ‘ethical’ line?
I was fired for missing deadlines for 1. A response to a motion that hadn’t been filed (still hasn’t) 2. Writing a difficult petition in 24 hours after another associate took 6 days to submit a blank form. Both times deadline was missed by less than 2 hours, while hospitalized (I have a disability). He knew of the hospitalization and said “he didn’t care about the reason I needed more time.” He came to my hospital room to get the company computer and no other attorney was fired. Is this fair?
Curious where people got their initial funding when starting a small practice. Did you just bootstrap it, or get a loan? If you got a business loan, any tips or suggestions?

Anyone have any experience with a business consultant that specializes in running a solo law firm? If so, how was that experience? Worth it?
Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
I’m an associate attorney at a mid-size family law practice. (5 attorneys, 3 support staff). I’ve been here for 3 years and just asked for a raise to $130k from $90k. My annual billable target is 1400. However, since I’ve been here I’ve barely broken 1000 despite working my ass off. I bill out at $375. They told me no more raises unless I start taking my own cases. Now they just hired a new associate and are paying him $170k and he takes his own cases. Am I being unreasonable asking for $130k?
Hi. I am a co-founder of startup and need some help with doc review and guidance as we move from our friends and family to Series A. This would be for me, not the company. I am based in the Bay Area. Looking for a solo practitioner or small firm, I believe. Any recs? Thanks

Do small firms/boutiques really have better hours than Big Law? A recruiter told me I should still expect to bill 2000 hrs at a boutique, but if that’s the case, why take the pay cut?

I have a college student wanting to intern at my new solo firm this summer. I totally can’t afford to pay her, but I also don’t plan on making her “work” but instead will teach her and add value through her internship experience. Is this permissible? Do I need to be cautious for any reason?
