I have an old data point that people will scoff at given the current market, but yes. Class year cuts used to be very common for senior associates when lateraling. I was offered a position with a three-year class cut. I came back and said no class cut, and they acquiesced. After the salary bumps and Covid bonuses, that negotiating has put at least $80k in my pocket in the last year.

If I’m a class of 2015 associate, I would have come in as a 2018 associate for purposes of seniority, comp, advancement, etc.

For senior associates, some firms have tried to sell this as a pro, as it gives you a longer runway toward partnership. But it also costs you $$$. Only for the desperate, IMO.

Who here has a manager that they have to “talk back from the ledge”? manager shares unfiltered, unstructured thoughts about how to do things, and instructs you to execute these half baked ideas and you have to talk them out of it, because those ideas will appear poorly-planned, if you do execute them. It is as much about saving your own credibility as it is about saving your manager’s credibility, but because they are argumentative, it is difficult to convince them otherwise.
