Do people know why some folks stay at big 4 firms their entire career as opposed to jump to big law firms? Feel like I'm missing out on the secret reason there.

I’m at Ogletree in a midsize city and I love it. Almost everyone I’ve worked with across the firm is kind, smart, hardworking, and extremely reasonable. The work is sophisticated and interesting. The pay is only fine and there are a few management things that could improve. But being a happy lawyer around other generally happy lawyers is invaluable.

Come on, dude. You know the answer is no. But if there is one, like 5k lmao. They always complain about not being able to compete with full service firms.

Last time there were raises, L&E definitely moved a lot slower.

Today is the day we find out about partner comp - so we’ll see how that goes

OD has never been a work life balance firm and they’re never going to pay big law salaries, they’ll just keep replacing people with hungry lawyers from further down the food chain. And if you actually can develop clients, you’ll make a very nice living and bill 1600 or less.

Just received an offer for Sales Consultant at Oracle. Currently doing consulting at a Big 4. Can someone please share the day-to-day of a sales consultant at Oracle?

Hi fishes, I received an offer from big 4 with 60% hike. My managers wants to retain and I asked them to match if you want me to be retained. Now I got a call from GPM yesterday. He used harsh words like "being greedy" "selfish" etc and offered me 30% in the end. I politely declined but he asked me to reconsider as he said "it would be unfair for the org for you to leave so soon." Let me know a proper response. Also what do you think of this behavior by GPM?
