Would you take a manager role when exiting with <2 YOE? Backstory: I gave a high salary range for a company I was interviewing with and during negotiation they couldn’t hit it at the senior associate band so they offered a manager title instead. I turned it down because I thought it’d be foolish and short sighted to take a role like that so early in my career. Interested in hearing other thoughts and personal experiences!

Currently at v10. Work is great, but its a specialist group, def not a revenue center for the firm. My billing rate is super high. little junior support. Zero mentorship. Basically a billing machine. Def won’t make equity partner. Interviewed with a boutique firm. Great people and similar work! I’m a senior associate. I want to give business development a try (I know I will enjoy it but not sure if I will generate business). Thoughts?

Thoughts on applying to school to pursue a second bachelors in comp sci for a career switch into tech (non bizops/strategy role) as a newly promoted Senior Associate (2 YOE) in Consulting with a business degree? Overall goal is to get into Product Management and the second degree would be 2 years in length. Please convince me I’m not crazy! 👀 not very happy with building slides/models all day and don’t see myself in my manager’s shoes!

I was not promoted to senior associate. I came in as an experienced hire and due to some timing issues with hire date and reviews, I didn’t demonstrate enough in time.

Rising third year in big law here, trying to figure out what people use as a writing sample when applying to the government? I have drafted briefs but never without input and edits from partners (and it is always a partner or senior associate filing them). Any memos I have written would be privileged.
