Has anyone heard of regional or mid size firms hiring seniors(from big4 or regional) as managers ? (Given they have 4 to 6 years) would love to hear perspective for both audit and tax.

I've seen title bumps going from big 4 to mid tier. Staff --> senior and manager -> senior manager

Has anyone ever been hired for a job you were definitely not qualified for? How did it go?

In my first year of big law and hours at my sweat shop firm are already getting to me. Recently got an email from a recruiter promoting a fully remote lit associate position with a 1600 hrs reqmt at a less than 50 atty law firm and essentially what is old Cravath scale pay. Does anyone have experience with a move like this? Too good to be true? I was under the impression that positions with low billables for big law (or close to big law) pay don’t really exist…
