Midlaw in NY might as well be big law — IF you’re making close to what you would be at the V10 it’s fake news.

If NYC then most likely PR. Couple of friends went to Amlaw200 firms pitched as 1700, but they are both annualizing 2000ish. Granted, 2000 is much better than 2400, but thats still not “lifestyle” and these types of firms tend to be blackbox about bonus even if salary is market or close to market (and it’s not unusual to see compression on salaries if not disclosed).

Usually some mixed arrangement with hours and merit components to determine your actual bonus that may or may not be market.

RIP your career

PR…

No. Don’t do it.

Looks like it’s a no-go then 😂

@partners - I have two opportunities. One is to lead a group for a corporation (industry). The other is to join another consulting firm, doing the same work that I am doing now. While the comp will be better to stay in consulting and I do like the idea of becoming a partner one day, I am intrigued with the steady industry role... any advice?
