I have it, was a talking point but didn’t sway one way or another

For what role?

Which one pay the highest ?

It’s a bit helpful (from a learning pov) at a basic level if you don’t have any experience. If you do, I can’t imagine why it would be helpful at all.

As an undergrad yes

I came out to my family last year and they swept it under the rug. I feel like I shouldn’t give them access to me until they give me and my partner acknowledgment, even if they don’t agree with it. I have been very sad and hurt. My therapist and others have said that maybe my family doesn’t have the capacity to give that acknowledgment. Makes sense, but why should I condone their homophobia then? What are your thoughts?

5th year associate. Mid-size regional firm in a mid-size city in a southern state. Primarily litigation with regulatory compliance counseling and some niche drafting sprinkled in. ~1800 billables a year (not counting pro bono or other expected non-billables). I’m considering a move but it’s hard to tell what’s market salary. My base salary is currently ~$190K and the biggest bonus I could hope for wouldn’t get me about $200K. Should I expect to make more?
