Yeah, thought process dissection. You probably agreed to an NDA inadvertently by agreeing to interview, but yeah it’s not uncommon.

Probably a bit premature but would like some advice. Current in-house sr counsel at 155k +15% bonus in NJ. Company is well established private company. In the latter stages of interviewing for an established startup- salary will likely be 180-200 plus equity (pre-ipo). Very happy currently but promotions are hard to come by. Thoughts on using an offer (if one comes) as leverage for a raise (which they’re working on) or just making the move to be number 2 attorney at new company

It’s been nearly 7 years since I’ve interviewed. Came to my firm right out of college. Getting back into it after all this time. For the first two companies I’ve spoken to, I’ve spent nearly 6 hours a piece on just the interviews themselves. Is this normal these days? I hate to complain but it seems like a big time commitment, especially since nothing is guaranteed. I also understand it’s my choice to put myself thru the misery 😬 - just looking for some insight on what you’ve experienced.
