🐟 folks - anybody know good immigration lawyers in New York or Virginia. Need it for a H-1b friend who is not in the big 4.
How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

Anyone know the implications of having a side tax business while at a big 4? I have done returns in the past but setup an entity for liability protection. If I report it will there be an issue?

Car is currently on father’s name. Does this mean car needs to be transferred to son’s name? Can someone from PNB please confirm this?

Does anyone organise one-on-one virtual catch ups within your team? Would males to be weirded out if a female associate reached out just for a catch up...? 🥴 I started the job few weeks ago (WFH) so I never really had a chance to make friends within my team. Being extroverted, I feel odd not having coworkers just to comfortably chat to at work. My only work friend is the only other girl in the team.
