Anyone working as an employment defense attorney in Kansas City and willing to share your experience with me? I'm thinking about making the switch from plaintiff to defense and trying to decide if I want to, and if I do, what firm to go to.

Ogletree has a great KC office. Good mix of traditional labor and employment practitioners.

Littler!

How do you like working there / what is the work-life balance like?

Think twice before going to Ogletree. They gave me an offer contingent on my background and conflicts clearing. Both cleared and around the same time as I got recruited they recruited another employee from my current office. The other employee started sooner and badmouthed me (my understanding is it was petty stuff). As a result they rescinded my offer without even discussing the hearsay with me first. Managing partner confirmed it was rescinded only because of her badmouthing me.

For those with company equity or unit incentive programs, is it common to forfeit vested equity upon voluntary departure? Explained as a “retention tool” but essentially held captive by a payout since the contract says equity doesn’t fully vest at 100% until the company is resold. If I quit at any time before a sale date, I lose all of the equity that has already vested. This was offered to a few employees in leadership but feels like not that great of a deal to me. Is this normal?

Federal Register confirms 2023’s 8.7% COL increase. Associate at Ogletree and my expected 2023 base salary will NOT reflect a full 8.7% increase from my 2022 salary. So I’ll effectively accept a pay cut IF I stay with OD in 2023. Also seems to mean my added yr of seniority/experience is effectively not accounted for in 2023’s salary. Is this a universal experience across comparable firms or are other firms doing across-the-board increases in light of 2023’s 8.7% COL jump? Am I overthinking this?

Any thoughts on sticking it out until an opportunity arises or lateral to Littler in the interim.
