Did you get the offer with MBB? If yes, then tell her no thanks. If no, then take it in conjunction.

If you’re not being paid it’s probably illegal; if you are- why can’t you also recruit?

Why not do both?

It sounds a bit sketch to me. You shouldn't have to prove your worth in 3 months time. Ask if you can be a 1099 contractor at least so there's something written on paper

Depends on the pay and VC fund. Plus, I think for better insight you should post this in the other bowls too like Private Equity and the Buy Side or investment. Best of luck!

Hmm I have never had a place ask me to do a 90 day project. It seems a bit abnormal to me. I don't know that I would want to take that kind of risk if it were me personally

Is joining a startup as the second lawyer under a head of legal (rather than a GC) a risky career move? Currently a mid-level at a biglaw firm and have been told my long term prospects are very good if I stick around. The startup seems like a good opportunity, but worried a GC being hired in above the head of legal would make my position much less favorable.

TC would also be lower at the startup, though the company is well funded and seems likely to have an exit of some kind.
