There is a cost-of-living adjustment done when you move to another city right?

Dang really? So if you move from say Dallas to New York City, you'd still be paid the same money? That's ridiculous

Yes, it was just given to me. Moving from Charlotte to Boston

^did they ask u to move? @Op...you can transfer and then negotiate at review time

@A1 no :-( I can't even say it would save on project expenses either since most of my clients are East Coast or Midwest. I don't want to leave the firm but starting to think that might be the only option.

No, moved on my own accord

@ey2 yup

Not at Accenture :/

Moved from DC to NYC...I got nada

@EY1 and EY2, my understanding is that if the company isn't asking you to relocate, adjustment is unlikely. At least at KPMG.

That's pretty awesome

I am a paralegal with 7 YOE (mixture of workers comp defense, personal injury, and now working in the litigation department in-house for a mortgage company). I have a BS in Legal Studies and am considering obtaining my MBA.

Anyone pivot from the legal world into something else using an MBA? I just feel like I’ve hit a ceiling and won’t ever make the money I would like to.

I’m thinking maybe risk, compliance, or HR, although none of these things necessarily appeal to me.

Has anyone ever gone on disability at a law firm where you’re the only paralegal to the partner of the firm? I’m worried I’ll be replaced while I’m out or that I’ll be letting him down. I’m already behind on my workload so I can imagine how backed up and out of touch I will be when I come back. I don’t want to let him down. I’ve been with the firm 5 years and I’m really his right hand. But I am concerned about it.
