I’m in Florida - not Miami - our regional firm didn’t hire contract attorneys but we did pay some employees on a per hour billed basis.

I don’t say this to denigrate contract attorneys, but they were high end lawyers who happened to want to work part time because of family commitments. We paid about $100/hour.

I would not have expected that kind of rate for someone who didn’t have their kind of resumes.

Hi friends! Wondering if there is any resource if link to PE associate salary band / compensation list? Tried searching the app but couldn’t find anything.

I can really use some direction. My background, I've worked 2 years in strategy and am currently coming off an exhausting year 2 in investment banking.

Everybody says there's exit-ops aplenty, but I find myself with less options and even more picky than I did as an ambitious T2 undergrad student. I really want to start a family soon and I'm just so lost. Where to go?

I just started at a new firm so my hours are ridiculously low. A very senior partner walked into my office to check in with me and make sure things are going well. He started telling me that as a new associate, I need to really check in with other partners and mid-levels for work. Knock on doors, be visible so that I am front of mind for work. I have been doing that, but the problems is that with a hybrid work model, it’s hard to connect. Not sure if it’s advice or a warning about my hours.
