From experience when they want to promote you, they will find a way. When they don't, they will find a reason.

Yes , generally less favorable. Impacted parties will always say no. Welcome to K love.

Nope all depends on how you set the tone, perception and work with the other practice... you will need to be very clear on expectations and make sure that the key people go to bat for you based on your work.

Why don’t you talk to the people that have gotten promoted ?

I have seen both. And hence the conclusion. One time a partner won’t promote as he/she has proved to be great at level A in practice X. Does that mean he is good at level A in practice Y? Systematically he was putting down. If you have other connections its a different story.

Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years. It was a declining percentage over a three year period. My POV was that it wasn’t something I’ve ever done and didn’t seem like they were sure of the hire they were making. I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
