Total Pkg - 255K(Base - 136K,MBO - 9K,Commision - 49K,RSU - 60K/4year).

I’m in talks with management about being a candidate for a new position, Project Manager.

I’m generally pretty organized at work because I have to be. I’m a 4th year lawyer and my firm recently started including me in a new transactional practice area. I know now the lead attorney is unorganized and “meets”all deadlines last minute. They hope that I will bring organization to this area. I’ve lived my whole life trying not to live like this. It’s a good opportunity for me to look good if I fix it, but it’s stressful and more practice management than legal work. Continue in comment...
