Keep em so busy that they don’t realize they can go elsewhere


Do they pay more? Haven’t observed that with google or Facebook vs us. They’re definitely better WLB but they don’t pay better. Same goes for industry - other than finance there aren’t a ton of jobs that pay more at the same experience level.

Partner OP - where do you work?

I was in software implementation most of my career (20+ years) and consulting pays way more

Culture, support, personal engagement means a lot. Most people will take that over money as long as the gap is not ridiculous.

Mostly I use lies

The career path to partner BS.. I think we should give this a deep thought. Companies who know what they are doing invest a lot of money and effort on retaining talent. We should be wise enough to do the same. And smart enough to have a strategic approach to it

I haven’t had a raise in 18 months. I have a review coming up in a few months. Our firm does not believe in raises - they push the bonus structure. I have been working my ass off - working up cases, for a couple settlements completed, and working another settlement. I need some advice - should I give them a number for a raise or let them decide and possibly undervalue me.


Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone has good advice on this: I was recently offered a full-time position and was told in the first interview that the pay range was between $30hr and $33hr.

I don't want to come off the wrong way to them but I wanted to know what would you do in this scenario? Thank you ahead of time

I'm evaluating an offer but have concerns about the current economic environment. I was primarily looking because I wanted to go full remote and got an offer for around 10% increase in pay. After receiving the offer my current company coincidentally offered the team I'm on full remote as well. Current compensation is around 150K. I need to now accept, decline, or counter the offer.
