Does your firm offer a referral bonus if you recommend a lateral applicant who is ultimately hired? I’ve heard firms like Kirkland, Cooley, and Orrick give up to $50k (?!) and I think Latham gives 25-30k ish. Is this true? And if so, is it common among, say, V50 firms?

My firm does (Amlaw 100) but it’s like, $5k I think and not paid until the hire has been there 6 months

Yes, and it has to be paid back if the candidate does not work out.

Yes common in my understanding. Ours is only $10k though (V25).

V25, we get $40k

Yes I think common and you only get it (or it’s in 2 parts) after the hire has been there for 6-12 months. And only applies to associates.

V10 $25k

AmLaw 100, we get $7500 after 6 months.

V50 - 25

V30 - $40k... still haven’t gotten anyone all the way through the process yet

When I was at Cooley it was $50k

Does anyone have any idea of a possible signing bonus amount to join L&W London as a lateral (class of 2015)?

I have a final round interview with a hedge fund in the NYC area. Approximately $15bn AUM and 40 employees. I am meeting with the founder of the firm and was told we would be discussing comp. I just graduated from college this year and the role is business development associate. The hiring manager described it as a front office role. What salary range should I be expecting going into the meeting? What about bonus?

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?

A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:

So I had an interview last Friday for a contract to hire role that I thought went really well. So up until today there wasn’t a peep from the recruiter hiring for role, so I reached out. The recruiter then asked me how comfortable I was in a fast paced environment. I responded by telling her that after working a mix of agency and client side, yes. I honestly thought the answer was pretty self explanatory. She then pushed for more details, which I provided an example of. Red flag?
