FDD gets paid regardless of if the deal goes through or not. I don’t see how having a higher bonus impairs objectivity.

I agree with SA1 - it’s a fantastic firm ☺️ It really is a great firm - superior compensation model and positive culture (very low turnover). Low overhead and the entire team is rewarded - not just partners. Big 4 can’t compete.

Like it is in any FDD practice - it’s fast paced and can require some late nights to get a deal done, but it’s the nature of the work.

My dad is a partner there so I’m fairly familiar with it if you have any questions!

Thank you for the insights! The recruiter reached out to me for a Disputes & Investigations role, so this has been very helpful!

Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote).

New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?

For folks who left consulting at manager level and went to FAANG or equivalent, did you take a pay cut? Im getting a lot of ranges from recruiters that are about 30-50k below my current comp for mgr and sr manager roles, even when factoring in equity (most are around 100k 4 yr vesting). So I’m interested in knowing what kind of roles are ppl looking at to get these 30% bumps on FB or should I be asking for way more?

Is the hiring slowdown over? I contacted a few firms to inquire about lateral opportunities in late June/early July and was asked to check back in the fall due to hiring freezes. I wonder if I should reach back out or if it's too soon. The news about Skadden's staff layoffs this morning makes me think it's too soon.
