I am an associate attorney for a solo and the only one. We work with individual clients, not corporations. So I started to do intake and client consults and got 6 retainers in 6 weeks. I am eligible for a bonus based on my billables, but I brought in about $10,000 for the firm just due to some sales skills I never knew I had lol. So I asked about fee splitting these sales and the boss said no, it will go to my billables and to a sizable bonus. Still, should I push for fee splitting or let it go?

Let it go. I don’t agree with above comment that this alone should leave you to looking for new employment. Just because you handled the intake and consult doesn’t mean you are necessarily entitled to a cut of that generation of business. It’s a great skill you have that thwse clients ultimately signed. But, your employer is the one paying for ads, marketing, whose reputation is getting the clients in the door. Unless you are actually referring these clients and bringing in the business yourself, standard that you don’t get a cut.

Hello guys!! Can anyone of you please help me out? Or atleast some advice!! I'm a bit confused between Accenture and Bain & Company. I've offers from both of these firms with almost similar package. The role is not related to consulting but more into the technical+business side. If I go with Bain, will it be more fruitful wrt brand value and job switch in next few years? Also, how is the hike and compensation benefits for the employees at Bain? Any sort of help/advice is more than welcome!
