Two weeks in at a (contract) client gig and not having Slack (or any form of instant messaging across the office) is driving me crazy.

Progression to a management level attorney is quite difficult despite the relatively large. Recently the company announced DEI initiative that includes targets and goals for women and people of color (not applicable to other minorities).
