I do employment at one of the “Big 4” but I want to make more money. Has anyone made the move from Littler or FIsher to a firm that pays market? If so, what practice group?

The employment folks at the firms I've worked at split their time doing transactional work and litigation. But the practice group is usually still called E&L.

I'm in exact same boat. Was hoping LE firms would do something on comp with recent raises. But crickets....

I’m a 3rd year at JL, my raise was a little over $8k

Plenty of people move to firms that pay market. Just be cognizant that since employment rates are lower than other group's, that group is often a bit of a second class citizen aside from the top (e.g. Paul Hastings, Morgan Lewis, Gibson etc.) places

What Big 4 are you talking about?

I think OP means the usual labor and employment shops, Littler, Ogletree, Jackson Lewis, Fisher Phillips.

How much experience do you need to be seriously considered for jobs that ask for “5 years” experience? I have 1.5 years of Big 4 experience.

(Including college part time accounting jobs gets me closer to 4-5 years experience - just not sure if that’s generally viewed as “valid” experience)
