A lot of convo on here stems around jumping around for salary. What is something that would inspire you to stay at your firm outside of comp?

Got a bonus that I wasn’t expecting or planning for. I’ll save the majority, but want to treat myself a little. What’s something you’ve done with a bonus purely for your frivolous enjoyment?

If you were offered 50% of your compensation and full benefits to take a 6-12 month ‘break’ from your job would you take it? Because that may be coming to you very soon.

Me not buying a word of this propaganda on the compensation calls. They do realize who they’re trying to fool, don’t they? We invented smoke and mirrors. Don’t try it with us.
