Being that the average Partner income is around $750k, I’d have to assume most are pretty satisfied.

P1, I appreciate a brief insight of how being partner has been rewarding for you. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve seriously thought of being a partner, and I believe it’s doable, however, the temptation of industry jobs and having a bit more to pay off some debt now (for me personally) v. playing the waiting game is tough. I know if one day I make it to partner I’ll look back and laugh at my current financial struggles but being in the now, waiting to ascend in PA, is tough.

Fellow fish, I like to wear short sleeve polos with an athletic fit. Unfortunately this gives away the outline of my nipples due to my build. I'm wondering how this may be perceived and if acceptable.

These emails from “Ethics and Compliance” asking us to not “eat hours really add insult to injury. They all know we are only allowed to bill 45/week per SOW or we get asked to go back and change it.
