Anyone else open to discussing salaries? I was the only associate in my small Texas firm (3 attorneys including me) and paid $40,000. Promise of bonus, but no show. I felt like that was way too low.

Not loving associate life at my firm. Recruiters say that the clock is ticking on exiting, but we have variable comp and I've worked a ton this year- I'd like to stick it out until bonus season
