You’re making more than me - I’m in house, 2016 grad.

I think that’s a pretty good salary for the hours, unless you’re not doing a lot of litigation/arbitration or investigations. I always found hours were really hard to meet when I was doing more counseling.


Yup, 2015 in house and that’s a lot more than I’m at, as well.


You are low when accounting for the salaries available in biglaw and (to a lesser extent) the big 4 employment firms. Maybe not low if you are in a small market though.


415 - NY - 1,950

That is very low. Min should be high 200s for a mid sized firm and then north of three for anything larger firms. Have you practiced L&E the entire time or did you retool from a different practice at one point?

Hello Fishes,

So want to re negotiate with PwC. Everybody saying PwC takes a lot of time for approval.
So give it now only! But still 40days left what if they start looking for my replacement?

Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.

So here are my questions.

How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.

When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone feel like they can’t ask the firm to pay for e- seminars/training in this cost-cutting situation? I wanna do so, it’s a relevant course, not too expensive and so far my firm seems to be doing OK (hiring and pay freezes but no redundancies) but I just feel the managing partner will be low key irritated (she is fairly calculative imo and rightly so) and I really don’t want to get in her bad books. Am I just overthinking?


Does anybody feel pretty demoralized with their salary and amount of work they do? (I mean, I know the general consensus is yes for our field.)

When I say “I feel” it’s because I’d still like to save a good amount and not live recklessly check to check. (Continued in comments)
