I've worked both as a contractor and as a FTE at large companies, and I don't see what the big stigma with contracts is other than not having the equity piece to TC. I see lots of people say contractors are treated badly, but I've never experienced this 🤷‍♂️

Hours are guaranteed not to suck, interview loops are shorter, positions are more readily available when hiring is tougher, and the worst I've gotten shorted on resources is no access to some HR stuff that no one really uses anyway

Any UK in-house lawyers care to offer their perspective? I’m in private practice (corporate). Recently felt quite fed up and I was approached about an in house position. I recently had an interview and it was hard work! I was perhaps naive but I was quite surprised by how intense it was. I’ve worked at several law firms and had several interviews. Yes, they can be tough but I never felt like the interviewers were combative (which is how I felt in the in-house interview).
