Is there any real exit opportunities for an executive compensation/employee benefits junior associate? I see a handful of employment in-house counsel roles and some compensation in-house roles — but those either require 7+ years of experience or some sort of employment/litigation experience (which i never do). I had a five-year Big Law plan, but i don’t think I can make it that long!

Does anyone have experience or thoughts about life after big law (whatever that means)? I'm a third year tax associate and seriously worrying whether I've chosen a practice area that is too "niche" to find something after. Do I even want to practice law? Do I just need a vacation?? Any and all insights are welcome! ^ The above was cross posted to another bowl, but also wondering whether it's stupid to leave big law and maternity leave / benefits at this stage (planning on kids in a few years)

Currently a C at Deloitte with 2.5 YOE, not in strategy. I am considering an offer from Strategy& for an Associate level position with 100K base.
