( 8:02 AM ) teahouse
As promised, here is the update on my professional life.
After several years of bowing to the BigLaw gods (i.e., sleepless nights, long trials, car service rides home at midnight, busy weekends and late-night dinners at the office), I have made a big step.
I have gone in-house. I have moved to the land of regular workdays, stock options, no more billable hours. Now I am the client.
If life is a Jane Austen novel, going in-house is the final wedding scene, after which it ends, since the reader assumes the characters have marched down the aisle to an eternity of wedded bliss.
As Cameron Stracher described it, going in-house is the last chapter of the book. After that step, there is no more story to be told.
I don't think any job is complete nirvana. The grass is always greener on the other side. There are different expectations and different pressures, no matter where you are. But I am having a good time so far. My group is terrific, the company is fantastic.
But never fear! This blog continues. There will always be enough drama elsewhere in my life. #
