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

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?

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?

Is it okay to ask the Partner for his/her salary on the comp call? I mean, if we’re actually being transparent, and he/she knows my pay, I’d like to know theirs too.

If I know how many attorneys there are at my firm, how many equity partners there are, the hourly rate associates and partners bill at, and the yearly billable requirement is it possible to estimate how much an equity partner would take home on average? Or are there too many other factors? I’m just curious. Our firm is super open about how much everyone makes (from associate to C and B partners) but idk how to figure out equity.

Curious about leadership compensation - does anybody have an idea on what partners make? And the scales for that i.e new partner who’s still “salaried” vs. equity partner of a offering vs. Consulting lead vs. CEO ? I’m in the Canadian firm so info for that would be ideal but other countries/firms would be good to know too.

I feel like a well liked and fairly competent, experienced staff member, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the kind of drive that some of the partners have at my firm. I’m a solid 60 hrs a week person that cares about relationships both professionally and personally. Is this the right place for me LT? Should I make the move to industry? It doesn’t seem like the comp makes sense if your don’t make partner and I don’t know if I have the passion for it.

I don't know partner comp. at my mid-tier. It's looked down upon to discuss because we value balance > comp. I align with the value but this shouldn't be a mystery. Nothing on glassdoor too. Ideas?
