If you go through the interview process set up by an external recruiter, how does that impact your salary and sign-on bonus negotiation? I ask this assuming the firm pays the external recruiter with a portion of my comp?
What is a reasonable bonus structure for a small plaintiffs firm (pi, ssdi, workers comp, employment)? I started at the firm 2 years ago as the only associate with no formal agreement on bonus structure. Bonus last 2 years was $5-7k, but partners made it clear this was not representative % income from my clients because they didn’t think that would be fair yet. Now I independently manage a hefty caseload, negotiate $$$ settlements, bring in new clients, etc. What should I discuss re: bonus?
When is an appropriate time to share with my relationship leader and the director that I closely work with that my wife is pregnant and I would be taking paternity leave early next year?
I am hoping to get promoted at mid year and don't know if letting the team know that I would be taking off would impact my chances of being promoted?
One of my coworkers called out another coworker for saying she was a “social liberal, fiscal conservative.” He claimed that was impossible, and you’re either one or the other.
Agree or disagree?
Im up for VP next year but want to leave banking for multiple reasons but 1 relevant for this Q is I don’t want the VP role.
My question is - should I tell my group head I want to leave shortly after bonus hits? (Plan to start looking soon and go full force after bonus).
Want to avoid doing VP work but don’t want to quit until I get a new job. Will work reduced job knowing I’m foregoing next bonus so I think it’s fair given bonus is large % of total comp.
I received an offer for SEC Reporting position (manager) in a tech company (LA based) but not sure if the TC is norm for tech. I’ve never worked for a tech company so I am not familiar with their comp structure. My prior companies are real estate, wholesale, etc. and do not give out RSUs for someone at my level. Please chime in and help me understand is this is a good TC package for non-tech position. Thanks!
sign-on: 5k, base: 145k, RSU $280k vesting over 4 years, bonus 5-10%
Does anyone have interview experience for a corporate strategy role at Cisco? Likely a grade 12 role. Curious to learn about culture, salary and WLB.
Is there still a stigma re: paternity leave? My husband is at a V10 and wants to take the full leave but is worried about pushback/stigma. It bears a lot on future plans bc he wants to take it when I go back.
Did this year have a lot more departures in advisory after the bonus was paid or was it just me?
Anyone pumped then bottlefed at night during the first month or two to get some extra sleep? Our baby is a “sleepy eater” and bottle feeding her at night gets us back to bed so much quicker.

How easy it to switch in house counsel jobs once you're in house counsel? I'm looking to make the switch from law firm to in house counsel in the healthcare industry and wondering how careful I should be in selecting my first in house counsel job. I don't want to have accidentally closed the door on switching in house counsel jobs without realizing it. Is it easy to switch companies? Or should I hold out to make sure it's a company/ position I could stay at for the longterm? Thanks!

Any insights on what kind of pay raise to expect as you become a 2nd-year associate? (AM 110 firm)
I’m finishing up my first year and I honestly have no idea if I should expect my salary to increase by like $3k or $10k (just to throw numbers out there). Currently make $180k, which is about market.
Virginia 🐠, has anyone had any luck rolling accrued PTO into your 401k/Roth upon exiting a firm? Our firm pays us out to the carryover limit, but doesn’t explicitly say check payment only
Is it normal for references to be checked before an offer is made or comp package is agreed upon? How much pushback can I really give at this point?
My concern is that we haven't aligned on a comp package (base, bonus, etc.) so checking references before that, is a potential time waste for my references.
