It makes sense for some areas. Parts of M&A, Risk and Reg., etc. Talent has to be good and show advantages to the client though... Talk legalese in human terms and so on.

I suppose it makes sense - gives the client one neck to choke for their professional services vendor

Big law makes big bucks. Makes sense. I heard we have like 3k attorneys, which would make us one of the top 5 biggest law firms in the world. Also, clients give 0 fucks on attorney fees in M&A transactions

For context, I work in data analytics in NYC, I have experience in modeling and machine learning (2+ YOE) and recently received an offer from one of the Big 4 accounting firms in their analytics arm. What are salaries for this role and YOE? I’ve done a bit of research online but can’t find anything reliable. The offer is less than half on my current salary, so I’m basically wondering if I was severely lowballed or that my expectations were too high.

Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.

In my first year of big law and hours at my sweat shop firm are already getting to me. Recently got an email from a recruiter promoting a fully remote lit associate position with a 1600 hrs reqmt at a less than 50 atty law firm and essentially what is old Cravath scale pay. Does anyone have experience with a move like this? Too good to be true? I was under the impression that positions with low billables for big law (or close to big law) pay don’t really exist…

FYI- We are hiring a Media Buyer (TV/Radio experience required) and a Copywriter! Remote/WFH with no plans in the near future to return to office.

My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market.

Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
