Hi all, Which company is good to join ? if offer is almost same based on work life balance, flexible working hour, work culture.
Does Accenture really lay off people? How is the job security? Got an opportunity in cloud support project, having 6 years of experience.. heard that in a team one of team members is given a deliberate PIP which leads to termination at the end of day, is it true? And do people actually get the variable amount in hand?? it's too high compared to other companies. Please help.
How many years do you need in consulting to reap the actual benefits of it (not just the resume benefits but the experience benefits)?
Strange question: many times, I notice myself having to swallow mid sentence while presenting. Seems like my mouth's saliva factory gets into overdrive.
Any tips on managing this?
I recently accepted an offer but waiting on conflicts to clear so I have yet to give notice. What should I be doing to prepare myself for the jump? Any documents you wished you would have saved, etc.?

Tuesday Profound Thought. (but on Wednesday, because I forgot that yesterday was a Tuesday 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️, I must be having a great break!):

Went outside and saw ppl enjoying life without masks on (after CDC guidelines) motivated me to get the vaccine finally lol. Been putting it off because I hate needles.... Can’t wait to take these off!!! 😷😷😷
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?

Looks like levels.fyi has finally added legal categories. Head on over and add yours so we can start putting together salaries we can leverage.
Transitioning from law firm life after 6 years to corporate counsel in house position. Any good book recommendations to read before transitioning over?
Anyone have regrets taking a pay cut to go in-house? I am a pretty junior attorney (2 years in big law) and have the opportunity to go in house at a large company (Fortune 25). However, pay is on the low end for Associate Counsel. Is a 60K+ pay cut (including bonus and RSUs) worth it for the growth potential? Maybe for the chance to move to a FAANG one day? My would-be department/area is very transferable.
Generally speaking, are there in-house positions that would specifically want policyholder-side insurance coverage litigation experience (biglaw pedigree if that matters)?
Anyone experience private equity buyout? How did the legal dept do in the reorgs and layoffs that follow? Very likely my currently public company will be bought by a PE firm soon. I am a general corporate counsel but I am the only one in legal supporting public company-related work. A chunk of my work would disappear if we go private (but I don’t mind that part TBH). But think that may put me on top of the list to go if the new owners need to cut. Should I start getting my resume ready now?
I have an interview with a Silicon Valley start-up for a Counsel position. Any recommendations for preparing for the interview? Any tips regarding what to ask to determine if it is a good fit? Thanks in advance.
I entered law school in my late 30's as a second career. I have strong pre-law experience (Executive of small company, 60 employees, $4m budget, MBA, etc.) and law school credentials (Top 10%, Managing Editor of Law Review). I'm willing to make less coming out of school than I did before, but want to ultimately land as in-house counsel with a decent wlb and make $200k+. I'm looking for advice on the best path to get there and how long I can expect it to take.
I am about to transition from being a junior partner at a large law firm (my practice has focused on private equity M&A) to Deputy General Counsel at a large-ish Pubco. I am already giving myself a crash course in public securities and corporate governance from my firm’s training materials and my cap markets partners, but I also wanted to poll the audience for other suggestions on how to become as prepared as possible for my new role please. Thanks in advance!
On the org chart, to whom should a GC report? I work for a fairly large nonprofit, and have been fighting this battle for months. I believe the appropriate place is the Executive Director, or in second place, the CFO. But I’m not under either. What does this look like in the for-profit world?
Anyone have insight into Uber’s hiring process and legal dept in general? There are a few older posts that suggest it’s not the best environment. Is that still the case?
best questions to ask GC in determining whether to accept an offer? coming from a v10, doing funds. position is with mid size asset manager, very small legal team. Thank you and happy holidays
I’ve been in an in-house role since the beginning of the year and just gave 2 weeks’ notice to leave for a much better paying and better titled position. The response has been very petty, to the point that I’ve been called unprofessional even after I asked the hiring attorney whether I could give longer notice at the current company’s request. Is this normal?
Does anyone have an estimate for GC salary in long-term care at a mid-sized (5000 employee) non-profit? The position has approximately 5 direct reports. The non-profit piece throws me off a bit. Thank you!
Anyone have experience working at Lumen Technologies? Or know anything about it? Considering applying to an open position there. Thanks!
Any thoughts on KKR CPG?
Interviewing for an in-house m&a position. Do the hours tend to be as grueling as they are for law firm m&a attorneys?
If you have an opportunity to go in house after 1.5/2 years in big law, is there a reason not to take it?
I’m currently a second year associate at a law firm, but will be interviewing for an in-house position at a large corporation. I’m meeting some attorneys next Saturday for lunch. (It’s the first interview but they know one of my references which is why we’re going straight to a lunch meeting). I have no idea what to wear. I’m 28-year-old woman and I live in a warm weather state. A suit feels a little too formal for a weekend, but I could wear a casual suit. Any advice?
