I work at a law firm that requires 2100 in order to be eligible for a bonus. Despite my best efforts (proactively asking for work) I will miss the target by 50 hours. If my firm refuses to give me a prorated bonus, should I take that as a sign and leave?

Depends on the firm. Latham (at least used to have) a hard bonus policy—miss it by ten hours and you miss it. But that doesn’t mean anything about your quality as a lawyer.

My firm’s annual billable requirement is 2100 hours. Anything over is bonus hours. 🥲

Current contract - amazing company that has been vocal about bringing me on when approved but no promises. Contract is $60/hr. I negotiated high due to paying private health ins at high $. I was offered a role at a different company for $105K with a $5K sign on and additional benefits. I expressed my need for a $115K base in our original conversation. Anything less than 115K is a paycut from current $ and if I was offered FTE at current contract. Thoughts on negotiating? I dont want to be greedy
