Troutman Sanders Discussions
I always have to go back and audit my commission pay because it’s never correct. A year ago when I found out that I could actually do that, I was a little bummed I’ve been missing out on that for months . My manager said “well it’s your paycheck”. My first sales job I never had to do worry about getting paid correctly. I’d like to think that companies take responsibility for paying their employees accurately and fairly. Is this a common thing in sales or was I just spoiled that first job?
Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.

For people who left a job after less than a year, how many questions did you get (during interviews) about why you were leaving so soon? Did you have any trouble convincing interviewers that you weren’t a flight risk?
A financial services client is asking me to be out sourced CCO for them. It’s not something I can’t do I just don’t hold them as honest people and in high regard. I worry about my liability of them messing stuff up. How do I stay as their counsel but decline the CCO liability.
Does your company offer an insurance payout to employees who opt out of your insurance plan and if so how much? We do, however we think it’s too low of an offering and would like to increase it. We want it to be logical from a financial standpoint.
Would a successful law firm disregard every opportunity in a location to disregard it as another attorney's territory? Or would they go at it anyway for the bounds of monopoly at least?? Confused!?
Question - if an employee damages other employees car at company property, can you fire them.
Is it too late to negotiate an offer that I accepted to go in house? I start in 3 weeks. Gave notice to my firm and they offered equity partnership but I’d rather pass on that. Now I received another in house offer a bit higher than the one I accepted. Is it too late to renegotiate the first offer? The first in house offer seems a lot more desirable to me but the second in house offer might be okay too, although I would not accept it unless they go higher because of some WLB downsides. Thoughts?
Hi everyone I need an advice. I have received an offer letter for a company A, however it took a while for the contract to arrive and in the meantime I was still in the active process with company B. At the moment I a awaiting for B to make final decision about my application. When I received the offer I notified B about this opportunity. I have decided to decline the offer. If B is going to ask me why I decided to refuse A what should say? B asked me to update them with my decision with A offer
I gave notice for my first associate position last week and the managing partner is making my life a living hell. Is this normal? She is making me call every client I have had an interaction with and explain that I am leaving the firm and other weird things. And advice would be appreciated. I only have a few days left but It is very hard to motivate myself at this point.
