Worth using a recruiter? Pros and cons? I'm trying to switch from being a general litigator to a specialize a bit.

Recently been interviewing with a firm that pays per billable hour collected. What are the drawbacks of this arrangement besides potential lack of business equaling no or low billables? I feel like I could easily surpass my current salary by going to this hourly firm so I feel like I'm missing something. I already am required to monitor my client's retainer amounts for collectability and have pressure to bill so I just feel like the only difference is I'd make more money.

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
