Yeah so they gave me a range from 105-120 + equity last time but since have IPO’d so idk what the equity aspect will be

I have many friends who applied for associate or equivalent roles, and then negotiated for the higher title. Maybe you could interview, flex your next level skills, and say “based on my new understanding of the role, I’d really only consider a senior role.”

I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now

Any tips for an associate assigning work to more junior associates? I’m a mid/senior, and have a few clients.

How do I market work to a junior, with the understanding that I can’t simply assign things given my position. I had a pretty diplomatic “no thanks” from one associate that expressed an interest in the practice area and I think there’s anxiety about overextending when there's partners’ work to do.
