Hello, I’m an associate (almost at the one year mark) at a midsize firm on the EPL team. I did about 2 years of employment law as a clerk during school and know that’s what I want to go into. I’ve asked for more EPL work but keep catching PI cases. I second-chaired an employment trial but don’t see any EPL work for the foreseeable future and wasn’t getting as much EPL exposure as I wanted before the trial. Any advice on a lateral move to a bigger firm with a broader range of EPL work?
For all of my career I’ve watched companies report extortionate profits and celebrate new business wins. Only to then go on to say that there isn’t the budget to give staff a rate of inflation pay rise. Will this ever change?
Received ECT AD in ops at BCG. I have two questions:

2. If I work for say 3-5 years, opportunity for good industry exits?

Does anyone that would be considered an addition to diversity at a firm (gender, race, sexual orientation) dislike the diversity initiative standards of forcing a desired outcome regardless of applications and candidate quality? It seems unfair to qualified candidates to feel like maybe they got a job because of that initiative and not because of their quality as a candidate.
When clients delay fixed fee engagements by a month or more and you've already started significant work, do you increase total fees? What reasons would you use to demonstrate why the fees increase?
I think my last straw may be that I’m on the way to the ER and people are asking me to send my working files over the weekend since I’m “out of pocket” today

When you get a promotion do you get bumped to the next salary level or just a small increase. If my salary is at the top portion of my current position will I goto the same level of the position?
Writers: the phrase you’re looking for is ‘every day.’ Two words. And apostrophes never make a word plural. This is 6th grade shit.
We’ll never be in this together until we realize that layoffs cannot be the normality in this business. Yeah this is a special time. But how come we’ve accepted to have layoffs all the time even when everything was ok?

Does having SVP CD on resume from cable TV hinder your chance to apply for VP or CD in related creative fields? Feel hiring managers see titles and say - nope, regardless of being qualified for job?

Is agency life just meant to suck? I'm in my 5th year, everyone around me (and me) is just sick and tired - whether it be a client, or an MD that just doesn't understand. Time to call it quits?
