I’ve been doing complex litigation for 10 years and I’m totally burned out. I now have the opportunity to either (1) lateral to a new firm as counsel w/ a significant pay bump; or (2) take a role at an insurance company as a “legal claims professional,” with a smaller pay bump but a bump nonetheless. Is moving into an insurance role career suicide (if I ever decide I want to go back to litigation)? Would I be crazy to turn down the higher paying opportunity?

Hi 🐠!! I’ve already interviewed at some of the places I’ve applied to, but I was wondering if it’s worth taking a course like MBA Math? My GPA wasn’t particularly strong, but I was able to offset it with an above average GMAT score. Do you think it’s worth investing time before they send me a decision?

Advice for getting research experience for a non-student? I graduated with a degree in Chemistry but I never got a chance to get involved in research projects
I have been approached by 3 separate HR people at a startup company to interview for a position. I already have a fulltime job that pays well and I only started 6 months ago too. Anyways, the pay was intriguing and the job was a high level scientific advisor so I did interviews. At the last interview, at the end I was told the job was for management but I prepared for a different kind of interview. I am waiting for an offer or rejection letter. I feel peeved that they wasted my time. Red flags?

Can anyone give me their honest opinion on working at Eli Lilly, the Indy site? I have a few coworkers that have worked there in the past but no one recently. I’m currently being recruited pretty seriously for a in-vivo technician position in the auto-immune team, but I already have a job lined up at Envigo as a small animal sx tech. Salaries would be comparable (Lilly would most likely be a little more with bonuses), but if the culture sucks, I’d hate to burn a bridge with Envigo.
