They gave my verbal offer to my recruiter, who then relayed the offer to me. Might be a different experience for others

In my experience they'll give the recruiter a heads up but you'll still get the verbal offer.

Yea same. My recruiter certainly did not know when I told him.

I’ve seen it both ways. If they reach out to your recruiter first, the recruiter may wait to let the firm deliver the news.

Has a doctor ever suggested that you consider a less stressful job? And if so, are you male or female? I am female and have some chronic conditions. Today at a routine check-up with a new physician, he suggested maybe because of my "medical conditions" I think about a less stressful job. I have never received that advice from the specialists I see for those conditions, and I find it unlikely that a doctor would suggest this to a male patient. Does anyone have any insight?

I am seriously considering a move from my very small firm (<10 attys) w/ no billable reqs to a national, not quite-Big Law firm (~300) . Their normal req is 1800 & I think I’ll be able to negotiate slightly reduced hours. I’m considering the move because business has slowed at my firm but we also have an issue with uneven allocation of work such that I am slammed and several of my partners are not working hard. I’m not compensated properly to account for that. Am I being stupid or short-sighted?
