Post here if your firm is matching Milbank!
Heard Milbank just raised salaries. 10k more a year for first through third years and 15k more a year for fourth years and higher.
Milbank has been the first movers in the last 2 salary changes. I am submitting a motion to change the colloquial term from "the Cravath Pay Scale" to "the Milbank Pay Scale".
Does anyone have any information they can share about Milbank NY (specifically thinking about litigation, but generally looking for info about hours, culture, comp, etc.)?
Anyone have any insight on Milbank Century City’s culture, facetime (pre-COVID) and general work environment?
Milbank appears to have matched DPW. Anyone know what the second to last paragraph in the announcement implies? It looks like a cya and not an hours requirement but unclear. “Consistent with the appr…

Any foreign attorneys feeling lost while working towards their master’s of law in US and working towards getting bar admission?

You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

Currently, I have an employee who is struggling. Missing deadlines, making false promises to clients etc. Recently, I sat in one of his development sessions with his manager, and I was shocked at how disengaged he was and how junior he actually vs what we pay him. After some further investigation, we are afraid he lied on his resume and how his experience. How do you go about a situation such as this? This is a first for me.

I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.

Curious about non-US attorneys: are you working the crazy hour weeks most of us in the US do? Or are your weeks closer to 40 hours? I hear a lot about the working hour caps, vacation requirements, etc in Europe/Canada. Curious if that flows into legal practice... or if it gets ignored. To clarify—I’m talking about BigLaw. I’m sure there are smaller firms with reasonable hours, the same exists in the US.
How many billable hours did you record in March? I had to get an early start on quarantine because a co-worker tested positive for COVID-19. So, I’ll start, 155.

Booking a Cat 6 Bonvoy hotel: listed at 60k points/night but the rate is only $212/night. I should just pay cash, right? I’m usually of the mentality of burning points rather than spending cash, but this seems like a bad deal.
