So I received an offer that is +45k putting my total salary at 170 as a senior and I tried counter offering but my partner said to me that money will always be there but that I can’t buy connections and growth. I don’t understand the mindset behind this? Isn’t more money today worth more than more money tomorrow?

If you made 275-300k total comp (pre tax) and had no loans and no kids and lived with your partner (who has very uncertain income) in hcol city (New York, LA etc) how much would you spend on rent?

I just reached 200k total comp. How long did it take for you to reach 300k total comp? Currently 32, and want to pay off 200k in student loans and have kids by my own. No partner.

I am going to collect my bonus and then ride the wave and get paid until they let me go or I find an alternative. After 12 years in public, my partner can’t tell me when I’ll be “up” for my last promo

If you made $225k total comp pre-tax and lived in HCOL area (but not quite NYC bad), how much would you spend on rent? Assume you’re debt free and will largely be WFH and live with a partner who also is WFH. So good space is important (not living the traveling consultant life). Partner can contribute but not a ton ($800-1000/month). Trying to figure this out. Thanks for any thoughts/insights on how you’d think about this.

Would you turn down a job offer (firm culture unknown but not notoriously terrible) that would pay 70k more per year before bonus to stay at a firm with good culture under a partner you really like?

As a managing partner, I’m always looking to find talent. Other than comp, what are associates really looking for in a firm? What will set a firm apart from others?

CWs, how proficient are you in photoshop and id? I’ve always had a solid partner, but they have since been laid off so a lot of the comp work is now on my plate. Any good online classes to take? Thanks!

Thoughts on a late 1st year going in-house? I'm getting close to an offer with a decent corp, in a dream location (Miami) with equal or slightly increased salary (cravath scale). My story is unique because I had significant experience prior to law school that makes me somewhat marketable to the company. While I'm well aware of my limited practice knowledge, I don't feel like I'm actually learning in my current role anyway. I also have zero interest in making partner. Is this too soon to jump?

Partners, why do you purposefully do not disclose details regarding partner compensation (structure, pay level, etc.)? Is it a cultural thing?

I’m at a small firm, and one of the other associates looks like he’s gonna leave. So the partner offered me the associate’s entire bonus if I tell the partner for sure he’s leaving. Horrible, right?
