Kind of weary. My loop was canceled because of the current hiring freeze. I spent a lot of time studying for the interview.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I’d encourage you to keep looking out for new roles despite the freeze. They still backfill to compensate for attrition.

Hi guys! Kind of stressed - I signed my contract but saw the hiring freeze announcement, I’m worried they could retract my offer. In your experience do these things happen? Or am I to assume that because I signed my contract weeks ago I shouldn’t be impacted by the freeze?

like

This sounds like a legal question, so please consult a lawyer to get qualified advice. From my perspective (which is not legal advice of any kind), I’d imagine that it will be a lot tricker for any company to pull back at the stage where the contract has been signed by both parties.

Q4 that is

Biggest issue in BL: The increasing partner to associate ratio. Out of greed, the partners only expand the partnership when it can be done without reducing each partner’s personal income. 40 years ago, you became a partner in your firm if you just wanted it. Not anymore. Firm revenues grow, while associates get an ever smaller percentage and less training What used to be a "pupillage" (as they still call it in England) to one day become partner, has become pure exploitation for personal gains.

What level can I expect this to be at (I’m not familiar with the L5s, L6s etc. leveling), what salary range is reasonable for that level (OTE, base and commissions)? I’m in NYC/10 YOE.
