Did Lewis Brisbois raise salaries? What’s the current starting salary for first years there?

Hmm, these numbers are surprising. I’m at 140k for 1,800 second year, which seems very reasonable. I started at 120k for 1,700. It’s basically 20k for 100 billables. So theoretically, if I wanted to bill 2,100 and have no life, I would be at 200k, which is right on par with a lot of the raises we are seeing recently.

The Wal-Mart of biglaw. Everyday low salaries.


They’re not a “good firm” they’re not well respected among the biglaw community and while they are amlaw100, everyone understands they’re not as reputable of a firm as their peers


Super low. I’m talking 110 lol they’re a big law firm that’s not a biglaw firm…


LB is in line with the pay at an okay insurance defense firm…so everyone stop pretending like it’s a vault 20 firm…

2 dollars. Jk but something absurdly low I’m sure.


They started me at $90k... RIP. But I'm in my second round of interviews at an actual big law firm. Pray for me lol.


I know, but im not even in the gen liability group lol.

Otoh, at least one person from my class (‘16) is already partner there



I’m not sure if they did for everyone, but they did for some practice groups.

I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating than the fact I was just told my performance does not warrant the 15% raise I asked for. Just be honest and say the company can’t afford it because I know for a fact this isn’t on me.


Hey KPMG EAs. When you move from one competency to the next is your increase similar to a promotion percentage? Advanced to Mastery.


Hi all! I need some advice. I came in at a lower level than I wanted and turns out, I did a shitty deal at negotiating. I’m up for a promotion (title but not salary bc of COVID) - when salary increases are a thing, how much should I negotiate for? Like percentage wise, with the fact that I’m about 7-10K underpaid compared to other people with the current title?


By industry standards, how long before a junior creative can ask for a promotion? (provided they've done the work to back it up, ofcourse)

Just put in my resignation because I got an offer with a 50% raise, my manager said she had no ill-will or anything. I log on this morning to a scathing review of a report I wrote, nitpicking every minor detail with senior management copied... Thank God I'm moving on.


Thoughts on this Celine Tripmphe bag (maybe in teen size since I’m petite)? I LOVE Celine bags and already own Classic Box (light grey) and Micro Belt bag (amazon green). Would this overlap with my collection, especially the classic box? I feel guilty dropping $3-4k for a bag when my salary’s only 100k. But I want to treat myself for upcoming promotion (hopefully) and for going through hard year in 2020. Was looking at Navy Blue but also considering black, camel or more fun colors (red, pink)

My company went through the promotion and raise process earlier this year and my push for a (very reasonable) 15% raise was denied. I start at a new company next week where my base salary is 50% higher than my current gig. Sorry boomers, but loyalty is for suckers and moving companies every couple of years is the only way to consistently raise your salary.


Since you can’t be a manager without CPA in Big 4, how does pay work as your career advances as a 3rd, 4th, 5th year, etc. senior. Is it just a standard raise or can you make good money without CPA?
