What apps/systems do you use to keep track of all your projects and tasks for the various matters you're working on? I recently took on a more senior associate role and am juggling even more projects and assignments than before. I want to make sure I am putting my best foot forward and keeping track of everything I'm juggling so I don't drop something by accident.

I've heard really good things about Notion! Downloaded it but kind of got overwhelmed. How do you use it as part of your work flow? I'd love to learn more.

Honestly Microsoft Planner is the unsung MVP of Office. If you have it, I highly recommend it for case/project managing both yourself and the other attorneys you work with.

I think i already know what people will say, but would you take a McKinsey EM offer for $180k and $60k bonus, or MasterCard director level role for $235k with 25% bonus? Currently at $165k base with 5-15% bonus. Hopefully more in a few weeks. Obviously the immediate comp and WLB are better at option 2, but option 1 might have more prestige/exit opps and higher comp after 5 to 10 years if i stayed and made partner? WLB isn’t that important to me rn, but it may be in coming years.

I’m burnt out from consulting. I found something I love (dream company, title jump, enjoyed getting to know all of my interviewers), but the position is a 6 month contract and a 25% hit on salary/40% hit on total comp. I’m lucky enough where the money doesn’t hurt (on parents insurance and living with family) and there is scope to extend the contract 3-6 months after the initial period. I’m planning on b school next year, so if I do this for 12 months I’ll take the summer off. What would you do?
