Anyone else ever get a feeling of homesickness even when you’re at home? It’s this strange feeling like you’re being exposed and just want to hide.

I am really starting to lose my patience with the WFH conversation. I understand that some roles can be completely executed at home, but our office manager just complained that 3 days per week starting in September is too much for them. Their entire job is based around our physical space but all these NYT op-eds about how WFH is the only way has sparked entitlement.
Best superlatives (good and bad) for the big 4 and mbb? Example: Deloitte: Good = best of big 4; Bad: Thinks it’s harder to get into Harvard
Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys. I practice in business, compliance, and real estate (primarily on partners’ files) and don’t litigate. Most of the partners’ clients are wealthy friends or friends of friends (not my circle). Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
Thoughts on 401k allocation at 26? Considered just doing all SP500 but kinda want more diversification. Small cap seems to have a very high expense ratio (0.82%); is it still a generally good play? Also mid cap performance seems meh compared to SP500... 60% FXAIX (SP500) 20% FSMAX (mid cap) 10% QUAZX (small cap) 10% FSPSX (international)

So...I recently started a new position (within the past year). While I like the practice area, I'm not a huge fan of the type of work I'm doing. I'm a new lawyer. I had planned to stay in this position for years, but I've learned there is very little chance that I will get to do any litigation. Most of the attorneys at my job were previously trial attorneys and they took this position for the slower pace and regular hours. I'm worried about moving on too quickly. Thoughts?
