Not at all - but you will get poor reviews and bad raises if you don’t effectively utilize staff assigned to you

No billable work

I’ve had full days but I’m having some ZERO billable days lately (1-3 days). We outsource our discovery work and it’s been slow for me. My colleagues seem to stay busy with other things… I obviously told the partners I can take more work. I’m worried. What do you do?

Anyone get paid hourly at a mid size law firm and willing to share their comp? I’ll start: I’m a 2017 grad and make $90 per hour billed.

Long story short, I work very part-time and enjoy the flexibility of not having any billable requirements. It’s just such a unique situation in my firm that I have trouble gauging how fair my comp is. TIA!

So, I'm happy at my current job and have been there about 18 months. Our pay is probably 15% below market (AmLaw 100) but so are our billable requirements. An interview for another firm kind of fell into my lap, and I'm debating whether to take it just for the sake of seeing what market really is. Is there something shady about interviewing somewhere you're not totally committed to accepting an offer from?

How many billable hours do people in prosecution tend to average each month? I’ve gone through waves of feeling like my billable hours requirement is reasonable to feeling like I’m drowning and can’t possibly do it for that long.

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

So I got 2 offers, 1 at a well-known firm (that I previously worked at, not as an atty) that offered 80K plus full benefits (100% health coverage, PTO, sick days, discretionary bonus & 1800 billable req.) Their a little old school in their methods but I do see the younger gen. coming in to make changes. 2nd offer is at a newer firm however i’ve heard great things, and they offered 80k, unl. PTO, 1500 billable hours, bonus incentives qrtrly, & 50% health ins. WHY can’t I make a decision? HELP

Deloitte & BAH compete for the same work, and have overlapping or similar pay for similar backgrounds.

Yet the workload at D is higher, due partly to 'firm initiatives' - D is less efficient (more work to get similar result).

Ergo, firm initiatives are often not productive; also, D benches rather than furloughs people without billable work, and hires people to the bench (vs client). Granted, D does have more mobility laterally & vertically.

Is any of this wrong?
