I’m an associate at Jackson Lewis. Your income will depend entirely on which office you’re applying to. It’s otherwise lockstep. And 1850 is definitely all that is expected, although we get hours bonuses if you elect to do more than that. It’s a great firm.

I received an offer for 165 in a major market as a 5th year

I applied to a position there, and in addition to raises being lockstep, they determine compensation based on COL tiers. The pay isn’t great. I’m pretty sure they lag behind Fisher Phillips, Ogletree, and Littler, but JL is more heavy on “traditional” insurance defense (i.e., low to mid range EPLI retention matters) than the other members of the L&E Boutique Big Four. CERTAINLY, the pay will be far better than a general insurance defense sweatshop like Wilson Elser or Marshall Dennehey. I have been told that while the 1850 target is real (and they’ll credit a decent number of pro Bono and professional development hours toward that number), your hours don’t count if they’re written off of the bill (although that’s true at a lot of firms). I can tell you that when I interviewed a couple years back as a fifth year at a non-NYC Mid-Atlantic office, they said the base pay would be 144 (they brought up comp on their own, to my surprise). Unless they’ve done a market adjustment, perhaps an eighth year would be around 165? The people I know that work at JL like it, and they seem to have a good culture. Money isn’t everything, and it’s not like the other L&E boutiques pay anywhere near Cravath scale.

Hi, I'm already holding an offer of 8.5 fixed from Org1. And, after being interviewed by Cognizant, the HR said she can only offer me 7 fixed 20K variable. Seriously? All she's saying is that it's based on my current CTC (3.79 fixed+20K variable = 3.99). Exp: 2 YOE. Technology: Informatica IDQ, SQL, UNIX Please help me here. My expected was 11 LPA based on the offer I'm holding. It's really depressing that the offer I'm being given by CTS is even lower than what I'm having.

I feel totally blindsided by the interview I just had. I talked informally with Partner 1 before the interview and was told the position would be in one of the firm’s satellite offices. Then, during an interview with Partner 1 and Partner 2, Partner 2 mentioned that I’d have to move to the state where the firm is headquartered because he believes face-time is really important for training/mentoring. I have no plans to move and really hope this wasn’t all a huge waste of time.

Also, any tips on asking for a signing bonus? Is 10% of the offered salary too high? This is the perfect role for next step in my career, so I’m scared to lose the opportunity. Help!
