Giving notice today. Got a job making the same amount of money I was for 1900 hours, for 1500 hours in a practice area I enjoy more. And I can bring my dogs. I am so relieved to leave ID! Had to post with the good news and thank you all for the great advice and perspective on lateraling that I’ve read here. Thank you!!

I'm the 1st in-house counsel at a tech company (200+). Starting to worry about the way they want me to practice law, but don't know if I'm overreacting. I have a very high-risk tolerance, as I've done mostly PR crises, data breaches, etc.

However, the volume of work and the way they are responding are starting to concern me ethics wise. Yesterday I was given a 200 page contract to review for GDPR. I asked for 3 day turnaround, normally I get at least 24 hours. I have no legal support.

Do any companies offer the option for new employees to choose their compensation structure between the following:
1. A set base salary with no bonus structure
Or
2. A slightly smaller base salary but with the ability to earn a performance bonus

Example:
Offer 1 - 100k base no bonus structure
Offer 2- 90k base with an OTE of 110k

How have you broke the news to a manager when you decide to put in your two weeks? In particular, when you are leaving in under a year on the job or in my case at six months. I am leaving because it has been a nightmare since day one and the role is not what I expected it to be. Of course, I cannot be direct about that when I approach my manager and I have a feeling he will not take it too well that I am leaving. Trying to figure out the best delivery approach.

I was told by management they see me in a more supervisory role at my first year review and during meetings. My second year review comes and there’s no talk about a promotion - instead it says “we can’t wait to see her excel“ and my raise and increase were the same as the prior year. I know I deserved more of an increase this year. I mentioned to my manager about the promotion and was told she will bring it up in a meeting. Three months later and I haven’t heard anything. Any advice?
