I don’t have the support I need in my role, but I love my GC! I’ve been with the company a little less than a year and we are not going to receive approval for more heads. How long should I stay? I was really looking to stay here a long time but I know it wouldn’t be beneficial to my growth or career.

In-house resources are rough all around right now. At my company, we’ve been told to drastically rein in outside counsel spending unless we have a knowledge gap and we’re on a hiring freeze. I just hope no one on my team jumps ship in the next few months cuz everyone’s plates are already maxed out.


This was before the current market conditions. And we received the same directive.

Hi I plan to buy a car which is going to last me a long long time. I’m not one that changes cars often just got rid of my car from college. The car I’m looking at has a 2021 refreshed model although I’m searching for a CPO. Should I buy an older model 2018/2019 or get a refreshed 2021 since it’s a long term car. Advise?

Additional Posts in F50 In-House Counsel

Where does everyone work? I’m at McKesson


5th year looking for gauge likely meta comp. Recruiter told me 175k-200k base + bonus and equity. Just wondering what would push me towards the higher base


It seems like we’ve had many people join from firms today. In the in-house bowl we had a lot of people speaking about F50 who don’t actually work there and the info/advice was often not accurate. If you’re not at an F50 feel free to ask questions but please refrain from commenting on things you don’t have first hand knowledge of so we can avoid the misinformation issues and make this bowl helpful for all


Anyone at meta switch teams? I like my work but my boss isn’t the best manager so I’d be interested in staying but moving around if possible


Hey everyone welcome to the bowl! I know someone started a thread asking where people worked. Looks like we have some F10 companies so far. If you’re not in the F50. What are you looking to get out of the bowl?

Can anyone provide insight into Meta Lead Counsel/IC5 total comp? I have an offer (DC) for 210 base/15% bonus/185 equity over four years, and I’m wondering what others have received, how much I can negotiate, etc. I understand base and bonus may not be negotiable, but I’ve heard that technical folks have negotiated equity packages 3-4x the amount I was offered - so is there a lot of room there? Thanks in advance!


I just got offered equity for the first time and I definitely don’t fully understand how it works. Anyone care to dumb it down for me?

I do not have a single recognizable company or law firm or school on my resume. I’m from a boutique IP firm and now starting in house at an unknown 3,000 employee company. My dream is to end up as product counsel at F50. Is it possible or is my lack of business pedigree going to hold me back?

I’ve been negotiating for over 2 weeks now and the whole thing is starting to turn me off. Should I chalk it up to HR bureaucracy or larger company issues?


Best product legal teams at Google in your opinion (e.g. Ads, Google Play, Chrome, Cloud, etc.)? While I’m assuming it’s all team-dependent, any general, across-the-board ranking based on WLB, culture, morale, most impact, and most coveted?
