Went in-house to FAANG and have never been happier with my job, salary, and work-life balance. However, I have heard that not all FAANG are created equal (eg, some will expect very long hours, etc)

That’s a fair consideration — I think it comes down to where you want to be in the longer run. Moving from Associate Counsel to Counsel/Sr. Counsel within my specialty shouldn’t be an issue at all, but taking a position in a specialist role could make it more difficult for me to switch into a broader coverage/generalist role at a different company (if I later wanted to). It’s just kind of a trade off, but I still find my work is pretty diversified and I don’t feel pigeon holed as far as immediate advancement prospects go.

FAANG salaries are usually pretty comparable. I know people who actually make more now at FAANG companies. How much of a pay cut? What year are you?

I took a slight pay cut joining FAANG as a 6th year, but now 3 years later my comp is well above where I would have been at the firm, due mostly to stock growth.

@Amazon 2, is the $500k based on value at grant or does that account for stock appreciation?

5th year. With the new scale, it will be a cut. This is especially true since bonuses are very likely to go up as well.

You’re unlikely to make more in-house outside of FAANG. I don’t regret my choices. I have friends who regret it because of the culture or the work but tbh I don’t know anyone who regrets it because of the money. You’re still making a lot more than most lawyers. I guess it just depends on what the difference in salary means to you versus all the other benefits.

Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary?

Recently moved into Tech Sales. Frustrated with my Salary (32K base/year, negligible bonus potential of a few K). Was making ~3K/week on average in my previous role which was commission only, no base. Feel like I am completely wasting my time and potential. Saw the cut as necessary evil initially in order to move into tech sales and make multi six figure commissions later on with potential to reach 7 figures in total comp. At least my current role is with enterprise accounts which. Thought?

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

I’m looking for encouragement and advice. I just started at my company as the Director of Compliance a little over 2 weeks ago. Three days in, my boss walks and tells me “you’re now also General Counsel.” The company is a hot mess. We’re behind on bills, we don’t have the documents that lien holders are requesting to stop foreclosure, and I just got yelled at by an IRS revenue officer. I can handle the tax work, the securities work, general corporate work, I can even (cont’d in comments)
