Ask A Legal Recruiter

I have an offer from a lower tier middle market firm and from a small but prominent litigation boutique. The boutique’s base salary is slightly hire, and the bonuses are about the same. Thoughts?

Make the tried-and-true lists of pros and cons for each and then weight them. Hopefully, this will give you the same result as your gut. If not, then there may be some questions to ask.

Currently a first year analyst with a TS/SCI full scope clearance. Yet at my firm I’m paid the same as my uncleared peers because you don’t receive a clearance bonus until a few years down the road. Are there places where I could receive a big pay bump for my clearance or since I’m so new to the game would it be wiser to stick around even without any reward for the clearance?
