I wish this app was set up for polls. I’m trying to figure out who has had the most success with finding in-house positions based on:
Anyone have a reMarkable tablet or something similar? Do you love it? My husband teaches and is obsessed with the idea having of a digital note pad device, but I’ve read mixed reviews and am not sure it’s worth the money.
KPMG offered me 18 fixed with 3 years and 11 month experience. Is that good or shall I ask for more. Currently at Deloitte USI

What the bonus% and hike% I can expect. I joined in April 2022.
I have heard bonus is 10% of your ctc.
Is this irrespective of your CTC and there is no capping.

Like if X person salary is 15 lacs he will get 10% 1.5 lacs as bonus
What’s the best virtual event you’ve attended? Looking for ideas for our women’s network, new hire class, industry groups etc. so anything could work!
Is there anyone that is a mentor with ServiceNow? I understand many of their concepts but bringing it all together is what I’m struggling with and the community only answers part of my questions.
Do you say you’re an attorney or a lawyer?

APCO Worldwide NYC, thoughts?
It’s the worst feeling when you KNOW people talking smack about you behind your back. trust me I’m fed up with them too, but the worst thing I would say about them behind their backs is this post 😐
Additional Posts in In-House Counsel
Any experience of the legal hypotheticals asked by Amazon at the final round (corporate counsel)?
Does anyone have any insight into culture at Apple Content Legal (or in-house legal at Apple generally)?
No poach agreements (i.e., we agree not to solicit each other’s employees) in customer contracts are a no-no for antitrust reasons, right? A customer is pretty adamant that they want it in but I feel like this is black and white. Would love to know if any of you are seeing them in your customer contracts and whether you’re including “unless prohibited by law” type of language to CYA.
Any in-house recruiters that work with juniors or even someone who could just apply to in-house jobs for you? I’m too busy to look but really want to leave
My co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?
I have a difficult time caring about what the business/company is doing big picture or advancing within the company. Just give me the contracts/matters you want me handle. Anyone else? Is this necessarily a bad thing?…don’t want to be married to my job.
I'm getting promoted and will have (an) employee/s. I have never been a manager before except discreet projects. Can anyone recommend an online, book, etc to teach me how to be a good boss? Panicking!
Real estate solo attorneys — do you close all your deals through a title company? Are smaller clients OK with paying escrow agent fees?
Have you had to change your start date after accepting an offer and how did it go? I told them I need to give 30 day notice and so I set my start date (incorrectly) assuming the background check and drug screen would take a few days to clear. However, the drug screen is now taking over a week and a half (still not finished, maybe tomorrow). Apparently things are much slower due to staffing issues and labs are backed up. It’s cutting into my 30 day notice significantly. Thoughts?
The mods are thinking of starting a weekly series where we breakdown the compensation / salary of an in-house counsel offer. It will include variables like location, YOE, alma mater tier, company sector, and company size.
Would this be of interest to the community?
PSA: didn’t think anyone needed to hear this, but apparently many do. When you’re interviewing for a job you actually want, and the interviewer asks if you have any questions for them at the end, have questions ready, and legitimate ones. It’s a really bad look when candidates say “no I don’t have any questions,” or they ask something incredibly stupid like “what cool swag do you get?”
Do in-house roles have conflicts checks?
Any one in compliance at an investment bank? What was interview process like? How long is interview process?
What questions would you like to see asked or answered in a panel on burnout for in-house counsel?
For those that support the marketing team… any good resources to get caught up on the AdTech lingo and just generally how it works?
What’s a reasonable amount for a counteroffer to an in house offer? Don’t want to give them heartburn but want to negotiate reasonably for my worth/cost of living. 10% of original offer? 15%? 20%?
Any university associate general counsel here? State university? Wondering what wlb is like.
Has anyone lateraled from big law into an in-house role at one of your firm’s clients? I feel like this happens quite a lot and curious how that process went (did you reach out to them, they to you, etc)? I’m in my second year and staffed on a large client & starting to develop a relationship which I’d like to maintain. I’m thinking about hanging in here for another year or two but then starting to look to lateral. Would love to work for this company if a position is available at that time.
My Legal department reports to HR. We used to report to the CEO. What’s the knee-jerk reaction to directly reporting to HR?
Anyone else’s legal dep’t report to someone other than the CEO, CFO or Board?

1, 2 and 4 for me.
I went to a second or third tier law school, MidLaw firm, employment and litigation attorney, now working in house at a well-known public company. It's all about your experience as a practicing lawyer, your soft skills / communication skills, and your ability to understand the role of a in-house attorney. You can overcome the pedigree and prestige stuff!
I know experience matters more at some point, but some of the job posts still want “top tier law school” or is big law preferred. I was just wondering the make-up of this bowl. Lots of ex-big law. I like hearing about successes that aren’t too.
1) and a combination of luck/desire I think. My first job was at Regional BigLaw/MidLaw depending on your definition.
Had a brush/near miss with joining FAANG about a decade ago but for the most part have been at “other” well known but non-FAANG companies. FWIW during my interview process the FAANG company looked down its nose at my lack of “true” BigLaw experience so there’s that data point.
2) and 4) for me.
4), IP licensing/tech trans, and luck.
I second the luck part. I landed an in house gig after 4 years and did not go to a top law school, was not big law and did not have a speciality.
1 and 2 but mostly luck for me.
Assuming you were to obtain a robust dataset, what’s your objective? What are you hoping to determine?
Could still be a biased sample.
No to the first 3 but I think 4 would apply I’m a 5th year currently working at FAANG in privacy and I had competing offers. I would add that I interned in-house in law school and I think that really helped.
I’m curious to know how many people went in-house to a client of their firm and/or were seconded at some point
I’ve seconded to clients before, but ended up with a non-client company.
