Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗

I recently left big 4 to take a private equity role at a large firm. In my offer letter they included a “target bonus rate” which seemed a bit low for the role and firm based on my knowledge of the firm. Wonder if anyone has encountered a clause like this before? My honest impression was that it was written in more like it was a conservative estimate if things are very mediocre performance wise by me and the firm but obviously I don’t want to overset expectations. Has anyone else seen this?

When hired as an athletic coach, does your position state “temporary?” Even if coached at the same school for several years.. It doesn’t make sense to me that coaches are year-to-year. Doesn’t help athletes. Since the CSEA got it approved that classified employees need to go through the same steps as certificated employees, regarding layoffs. LACOE wants to have coaches not be considered classified or certificated, just temporary. With no Union, no voice, no respect, no appreciation, no rights.
