Considering lateraling to a bigger firm that pays closer to market or market. I really like my current firm and coworkers and WLB, but I am being underpaid. Based on conversations with my PG leader and supervising partner, I might make NEP/Counsel this year or next. How do you go about asking what the pay bump for that is? If it’s sizable I might just stay.

Hi, I am selected for the Content Developer role in TechM, but they are just offering me a 30% hike and I even need to shift to Pune. Is it good or are there other ways to increase the offer? HR told me that this salary is auto generated from the system and can't be increased.

For those in small firms - what are your performance based commission structures? Is there a different structure for flat fee (e.g. estate planning) vs. hourly billables (e.g. litigation)?

Thanks in advance!

Feeling unenthusiastic about my work life recently. My agency doesn’t give me a lot to do, I often ask other folks if they need help. When I do finish a job, I’m always praised for it, and then I go back to to asking people.

Everyone at the agency seems to be busy all day. Not that I WANT to be super busy, but it makes me anxious to have to ask all the time. This is my first job, I haven’t met most any of my coworkers irl (we have no office). Work feels a bit like limbo.

What should I do?
