@ba1: no I didn’t

That requires getting another job first. I meant in-firm

Talk to your counselor. They should be able to get you off the project. If they can't quit...

I quit lol - best move I’ve made yet! 👍🏻

2015 grad in a mid sized law firm. Considered a rising star. Rumors that equity partners will be breaking a class rule precedent to elevate me next year. Lately just not feeling happy. Overworked. Don’t get to see my kid ever. A client has reached out for the third time trying to hire me. Boss is extremely difficult. Googled a bunch on pros and cons of going in house. I am also not making big law salary so financials are less impacted than for the “usual” candidate. Advice?

Client wants a meeting the day before the shoot to talk about the production (which we have done a few times already), so not sure if it makes sense to have a formal PPB for this meeting. Thoughts?

So I've been working at my company for 8 months now as a business analyst. Both senior consultants on my project are leaving, with no replacements in sight, so the project work is most likely going to fall to me. I am already doing most of the work of a full fledged consultant as defined by the companies description. I'm only getting paid 55k a year which I'm being told by other employees is below industry standard (they take around 70% of my billable rate) and I'm feeling kind of stuck. Advise?

Geniuses can you please share some ideas/creative ways to track the following.. Case: have around 25 companies and associated info. Part of that info includes company contact point info (name, email) each company may have 1-8 contacts. Contacts change frequently. Ideally I’d like my columns to be |comp name | contact name| contact email |etc, but the issue is I need to track when people leave a company, can’t delete the data. Rn I have 1 sheet holding comp info, another, contact info.

I really want a 3rd kid (and 4th). My OB says she wouldn’t tell someone like me not to have another kid but she’d like me to deliver before I’m 35 because I’ll already be high risk for 2 reasons: 1. I had 2 full term pregnancies but have a short cervix requiring progesterone suppositories for both. 2. I had severe pre e with my first and then high blood pressure and early pre e indicators with my 2nd (but was induced before a pre e diagnosis). Anyone in a similar boat gone for a 3rd?
