Insurance Defense Associate new to group. Just finished first year on the defense side after 6 years on the Plaintiff side, joined 3 weeks before lockdown. WFH with 6 and 2 year old. While billing 2k in a year with kids at home all day is nuts, you will not get better balance in a small pltff firm. Small firm partners are allergic to WFH, and can't afford to be flexible with when an associate gets to their work. The support of a larger firm is what has kept me alive this past year.

BUT right now my base is $85k OTE of $120k. This is $130k / OTE $300k plus. I asked for $125k from my current boss - they wouldn’t be able to make the uncapped $300k OTE tho. Should I take it?
