Hi Adobe folks, Could you please let me know what's the ideal salary for a program manager for 4 yoe at Adobe India?
Also, how many rounds of interview is supposed to be happen for this position?
How do most people’s firms calculate billable hours for associates? In other words, what hours are counted towards your target? Do you get credit for things like CLE’s, mandatory trainings, etc.? What about pro bono work (assigned by the firm) or writing for firm publications? Or time that a billing partner writes off on paid matters? What about sick or other leave credits? Is it pretty much everyone’s experience that it’s just straight billable hours on paying clients?
I think we all know that it's a hot market right now and I'm not actively looking but I take a recruiter call here and there. I'd love to share my experience and background and the salary ranges I have seen the last month or so. I have not gotten to an offer but I might be getting close.
My background: 6 years as a CSM, multiple unicorn startups prior to where I am now. I'm based in the Midwest and fully remote.
I have been asking for a $140k-$150k base + 20% and equity. Thoughts?

Would you exit to a position that pays less than what you earn currently? Looking around FinTech roles and the base / total comps seem lower than current pay. The roles would not be 9-5 either. Am I underselling myself if I leave for less? What jobs would match comp?
Have you interviewed for a job where you haven’t even spoken to the recruiter? At this company I’ve dealt with the interview scheduler, hiring manager and even a panel for my second interview with the director and another senior manager…but no recruiter.
I reached out, but still nothing…so I don’t even know the real comp, benefits or specifics of this job. Has anyone encountered this? I’m thinking I’d speak to the recruiter once an offer is made.
Has anyone recently gone back into banking? I am thinking about going back because of the increase in comp and opportunity to work at a top BB. I was a boutique ib analyst for 2 yrs and currently a LMM PE firm 1st year associate.
I am looking to gather different tools to do a salary analysis for the company I work for.. what kind of tools does everyone use?

I moved to the Netherlands 3 months ago on a spouse visa. Was working with EY-P earlier. I have been applying to jobs and giving interviews but for some reason things are not working out. I get a different reason everytime (after going through the whole process). This has never happened earlier in life and now I don't know what else to do. I have worked as a strategy consultant (& a researcher). Should I change lines? Where else can I try?
I can't apply to boutique firms since Dutch is mandatory

I have been reading posts from newer associates about bad things partners have done or said to them and I think it could be fun for some of us more senior lawyers in the bowl to tell stories of mean things partners did or said to us when we were new associates. Hopefully it stays mostly light and not horrible things.
1st year associate (NY) thinking about lateraling into a large insurance defense firm from Municipal work/L&E, pay jump 75 to 125 and hybrid as opposed to fully in office. Basically is the pay jump/hybrid worth giving up current practice area to ID? If it turns out I hate ID, thoughts on leveraging the litigation experience and substantive knowledge of L&E to then lateral again within 2 years?
SF Bay Area small firm associates with 3 years experience or less: what are you making in base salary? Annual bonus? What’s your billable hours requirement (if you have one)? How many hours do you work per week on average? Are you plaintiff or defense side? Trying to get a feel for what average compensation looks like and what factors into it.
If you had the opportunity to take 3-6 months off work right now, what would you do during that time?
Recently made the jump from mostly insurance defense work where my average billable rate was around $225/hr. Now the average billable rate is probably about $450/hr. Would I be able to get away with my insurance defense billing practices. I was averaging about 2800/yr before. Would that be cool in big law?
Does anyone enjoy lender work? If so, what about it did you find appealing? I’ve somehow been saddled with all the lender work at my firm (despite never having expressed an interest in it and having no experience with it) and it’s miserable. Having said that, our other practice areas are slowing down significantly and I don’t know if I want to rock the boat. Any advice would be much appreciated!

First-year associate here. For all those who have lateraled in this market, do you recommend I make the jump to a bigger law firm? I love my partner and enjoy the work, but the compensation is extremely low for comparable mid-size firms. I bill over the minimum billable requirements every month, and I’ve been told I’m a good associate and have good work product. Lately, it’s hard to feel motivated knowing that I’m billing as much as people making double what I make.
At one time Murica seemed so far away….. today a Toronto school was locked down due to a suspect showing up with a rifle. Police shot him.
I use timers to keep track of my billable hours, but many senior associates and partners have told me that they just estimate their time. What’s the best method? How do you even accurately estimate?
