Congratulations! A similar thing happened to me too at a previous job, where I got a significant raise and was told not to tell any of my coworkers. And I was really conflicted because of course I wanted the raise (and took it) but these tactics were obviously meant to ensure that others in my company didn’t get any ideas about negotiating for raises as well. And of course the company will say they can’t afford it, but we all know that’s not really the case. It’s an anti-worker strategy and results in keeping salaries suppressed across the board. Same with the stigma of talking about salaries with coworkers. When knowledge is power these tactics result in disempowered workers and lower salaries.

Anyone know what Weil’s average hours are like given that they don’t have billable requirements? A lot of people say big law comparable but I know some people in big law shooting for 2000 and some shooting for 2600 and those are two very different worlds. Was considering applying to a role there but wanted to get a feel for what this really equates to.
