No I felt the bump was in line. But I've seen peers leave Big 4 for 21+% after both adjustments in same LOB. Understaffed here so if the Big4 pain is worth the $ why not?

Anybody trying to pivot out of law?

I've basically scared the shit out of myself.
As a 46 y/o lawyer, it feels like the whole working world has changed while I've been stuck in a building for the past 14 years.
I'm a glorified paper pusher. I understand legal concepts and make them digestible for lay people. I research shit. I write shit. I argue shit. That's it. I don't fool with excel, power point, etc. I have no need.

Has anyone at EY, or at any professional services firm, successfully made a case for EY law or their firms to initiate the GC process as a Senior 1 (or equivalent ranking)?
EY law states that one must work at the firm for 2 years (campus hire) and demonstrate manager potential, whereas I know deloitte allows any rank to initiate the process after a two year employment with the firm.
