How do you litigators do it? I’m a transactional attorney caught in the middle of a client’s litigation issues and this sucks. Parties are so headstrong, confrontational but at the same time won’t even speak to each other. Do you always expect to get paid? Some of these litigators’ bills seem extreme for no actual trial occurring. I’ve never been so pleased with my chosen path.
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?
Wish I could just sit on the lake and watch the jets practice for the Air and Water Show all day 🛩🛩🛩🛩... sucks for anyone flying through ORD though
Does anyone have a virtual happy hour activity that was actually fun, other than drinking some expensed booze.

First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm. The majority of my experience has been working in private funds, financings, some M&A, and limited Real Estate work. I think I enjoy the idea of a few years in big law after law school to pay off loans (undergrad+law school), but am not sold b/c I have been remote since I started in January and rarely get to interact live with deal teams. How can I tell?
With all the banks increasing entry level salary, do any of you regret going into consulting vs banking?
How long did it take to process H4 and H4 EAD this past year. My SO just got their EB1 denied after multiple RFEs. Now have to switch to H4, as the H1B is expiring soon. We’re applying for an O in parallel. Looking for advise or positive stories to stay hopeful. I have an approved I-140
How do you calculate your day rate? (Sorry in advance—I know this has been posted before)
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
M3A - 2-rated, only $3k base increase and $12k bonus (last yr $12k base increase, $8k bonus). Told the next step to get a large base increase is promotion. Is this bullshit to keep me hanging on?
I have cleared my first round interview in HCL and after that I got call from HR for salary Negotiation but it was not completed. It's been 10 days and I didn't got the call and that HR person is not lifting my call as well. I have submitted the BGV details as well. Can I still expect the call from HR?
Ladies! I’m curious, which benefits do you look for when moving to a new firm? Lots of recruiters talk about expanding diversity, hiring women, blah blah, but I’m not sure benefits have changed much
Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?
New to Deloitte, How is the promotion path defined to go from Solution Specialist(SS) to senior SS? Eg. how many years in SS should we work before asking/making our promotion case for SSS
Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
