You can take a few weeks off and still have a huge bonus.

I also work in restructuring and your friend isn’t wrong. I have found that it is somewhat easier to take an entire week-10 days off than it is to take a long weekend. For the longer time period they can find someone to cover but it is more difficult to do that for a 4 day weekend (that’s not to say I don’t take any though). Definitely depends on the level and the case. But in my opinion, I wouldn’t say that people don’t take vacation because it affects collections and therefore the bonus, I’d say it’s just more difficult to get away. At least we are compensated for it.

That’s correct, unlimited vacation time. Standard benefits too - and more $$.

Crowe - should walk the Camino de Santiago

Bonus is paid on cash collection. As you get paid really well people don’t like taking time off

Left a job in government (prosecution), currently at a mid-size firm. I’m really starting to not only hate law firm life, but the practice of law generally. Is this part of the transition? I left my last job because I was on-call 24/7. Now I’m 24/7 again but due to billable requirements. I have no hobbies, no free time, and only spend about an hour/day with my kids. Not sure I want this life. At least I had insane PTO for govt work.
