Help! I got offered a starting salary of $140K, +15% bonus, + like 500 shares equity, for an in-house commercial contracts attorney role. I’ve been told by other attorneys there that most weeks are 50-60 hour weeks (much less than ideal as I have three very young children and am hoping to be more available to them). I have 10 years experience in house, 5+ years in commercial contracts. I think I should go back with at least $150k, but should I go even higher? Should I ask for a signing bonus?

Why go in at all if the hours and WLB isn't what you're looking for? What's more important to you?

Couldn’t agree more. Unfortunately I need something right now so until I get any other offers I feel like I need to take it. Can’t afford to not work.
