Lol don’t listen to A1. Assuming you’re interested in NYC, I got $50k when I lateraled to a V10 as a second year last year, so you can prob get more.

Lol it’s not at all uncommon in this market

Yeah A1 is just flatly wrong. If you’re a corporate midlevel/senior at Skadden, you can definitely nab $50K+.

Why would law school grades matter? Lmao

That’s a very specific response lol

A V3, T5, and summa cum laude? Probably guaranteed partnership and a free car.

If only they were V2 and T4, then the car would come with a driver. No need to worry about parking then.

Like 5-10k? If that.

A2 and A3’s responses re A1 can tell you everything you need to know about lots of the folk who work in V3 law firms.

I was a mid-level corporate associate from a V50 with mediocre grades from a T14 and got a couple hundred thousand. I think deal sheet and how you present trump school and grades at this point. Start a bidding war

I was referred to Deloitte by my friend and he had took 25K from me for referral...but HR didn't offered the amount I expected.. Deloitte offered 21L including PF and gratuity. Counter offer I had was 25L including PF. Tried to negotiate with HR to give atleast 23L. But HR didn't agreed.. Now as offer was never released I am asking my friend to return what he gauranteed..and he is denying... Can anyone provide suggestion? What can be done with such frnd and how can I get back my amount?

Looking for DC international trade associate! I’m not a recruiter, just want the bonus! Midsize firm but pays well (220k for third year). Some experience with FCPA is preferred. If you are fresh out and wanna act super interested that would probably work too. New practice group at the firm, only one partner to report to so you’ll get lots hand on experience. Last associate left for relocation but she was never drowning and the partner is super friendly!! DM if you are interested!

For a principal software engineer at 29 with 8 YOE and 5 years of consulting experience, is $180K base with $25K stock and $18K bonus good? I live in a HCoL area (avg household income in my zip is $129K) and I see people here with MASSIVE comp packages…I wonder if I’m asking for too little. I exited to industry from consulting last year and when I was applying, my range was $180-210K and 1/2 of the companies I applied to said that was on the higher-end.

Im weighing two options with former managers that I worked with. Option 1: $114k (paycut from current salary); manager role overseeing a team of 7; great manager and work life balance /// option 2: $150k + bonus ; director role working with market leadership team so lots of visibility and if I do well can grow into more things. Work life balance should not be more than 50-60 hours a week but it was with a former micromanaging boss. I also have a toddler with most of the responsibilities

My spouse and I do well for ourselves financially. We save his bonus (which is 6 figs) , max out 401ks, live off our salaries, have a home, etc but beyond that he’s not really into looking closely at our spending. It makes me nervous as I didn’t come from money like him. He’s in finance but only references our budget once our account dips more than HE is comfortable. Not looking for a new husband just wondering if I’m being a poor patty and overreacting wanting to budget/save more.
