Are you paying? If so I think you answer your own question.


In all fairness, I don’t think OP is paying. Likely it is the marketing department at his or her firm.

Hey OP, did you end up moving forward with the Profile Magazine opportunity? If so, did you feel it was worthwhile? Trying to coach a colleague through an opportunity with Profile.

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

I see a lot of posts out there about huge salaries and whatnot, but I can’t help but think the things I do most days don’t really require a law degree and can competently be done by intelligent business minded folks, such as contract drafting/negotiation and strategy development, and as such I am overpaid. After ten years of doing this work, I struggle to define what special attributes I bring to the process since it all seems so simple. Just wondering if anyone shares the same feelings.

For those at large in house companies, how long after your last round did you hear back with an offer?


When should a litigation hold be distributed company wide versus only key players? Should it always be limited distribution?


Got my first in house offer today after years and years in big law! I’m SO excited 😆 a *little* sad I won’t have the big senior associate paycheck anymore but also thrilled about my future life with hobbies and a hot boyfriend who I actually get to see during the week!


I went in-house 3 years ago. At the time, I was interviewing with 2 companies. One company was a much better cultural fit for me and I was 1 of 2 finalists. But they chose the other applicant. I got the other job and have been there ever since. The work is ok,but I still struggle with company culture daily. 3 years later, the original job that I wanted has been reposted. Reach out to the GC directly to show interest? Is it worth moving from a comfy job just bc I think the culture will be better?


I’ve only been practicing for less than 2 years and got an in-house counsel position right out of law school. The only other attorney that is in-house is also leaving and I’m extremely nervous about doing everything on my own. Does anyone have resource recommendations that could guide me as I navigate this position and responsibilities on my own?


Could use some perspective from folks here! I joined as in-house counsel from V20 recently. When I interviewed for the position, the hiring manager explained the team structure and broadly gave me a career path in the company. The day I joined I learned of a long term secondee who’s around my same level that they’re planning on bringing in with the exact same job description as me. I feel extremely frustrated and had I known this before joining, I might have made a different decision. Contd.

Hiring managers: let’s say you are interviewing someone with a lot of relevant experience, but may not be totally on point. What’s going to sell you on that person? This is truly a vague question, but are you looking for honesty about what they have vs haven’t done? Can you tell when someone is trying to spin it? (Feel free to also include anything that turns the candidate to a hard no.)


Been in house for about a year. I just found out that a new hire who has 1-2 less years of experience than me (but will have the same role/title as me) received a compensation package significantly higher than me, mostly due to the market dynamics with law firm associates’ compensation being ratcheted up the past year. Can I ask for an equitable raise mid year? And if so, how? I got rave reviews but an immaterial pay bump (3%) at year end in December.
