Amex outstanding balance does not match what I have in the expense system as owed. There is about $1K difference. But the reconciliation report is coming back balanced. Is there an easy way to verify?

One big law observation - my experience at my m&a team: atmosphere was dry, work-only, not feeling cared for my well-being, and zero social interaction.
My experience at a new ecvc focused firm: it has been more down to earth conversations, lively, approachable, good level of social interaction, and more horizontal relationship.
Is this typical of these two practices? Additionally, I spent 3 years in each practice. What exit options would be most suitable?

Which biglaw firms have the lowest billable hour requirements while keeping on track to make partner? Not necessarily asking about published billable hour minimums, I’m more interested in the IRL minimums. Relatedly, I know there are some firms that have published 1800-1850 minimums—is the expectation that low, or is it just a marketing gimmick where attorneys are billing the same hours as firms with 1900-2000 minimums?

Disclaimer: I know this can be office and practice group specific.

a job i got a physical offer for Monday night (7pm), and accepted wednesday (had some questions about benefits), reposted the same job on glassdoor on wednesday, and on linked in this morning (friday).

should i assume they are going to rescind my offer? is it possible for there to be another position open at my rank? would it be weird if i called my recruiter (internal) about this?
