Is GC a better job than law firm partner? Seems like the comp is generally lower

Better from the persepctive of work-life balance; worse from the perspective of ambition

Why are there suddenly 3 or 4 posts asking if gc is better than being partner. Can we please choose one thread and post to that?

I just wish the questions weren’t so generic GC at a F150 v partner at a V10 firm are vastly different than GC out of the F500 v partner at a small firm. It’s really hard to compare things that broad and that different.

Really depends not all GC and partner positions are made equal. If you could land a GC job at a Google or an Apple I’d take that over law firm partner any day, but those type of GC jobs are rare. There are less GC jobs than partner positions anyway it’s hard to break into but can be really rewarding depending on what you are looking for.
