Why is the current rate for a very senior UX Lead hourly rate? Backstory: my employer is “eliminating” my position and gave me 90 day notice. Now that we are at the end, they asked about me contracting there still.

Hmmm... I don't recommend hourly rate, although sometimes I apply it myself. Not sure there's a great hourly rate you can apply, it varies from $30 to $1000 depending on the use case. My suggestion is to just add something to your current income and divide it by the number of hours you currently work. This will tell you your current hourly rate that you can adjust as needed.

I'm a second year, and I still feel like I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Partners/senior associates/mid levels, when do you expect junior associates to not act like such newbs? I feel like the patience the seniors in my group give me is wearing then, but I still feel so confused all the time. Is this normal? Or am I falling too far behind and should begin looking for a different kind of job? :(
