Honestly it’s doable but I think it would be better to come in as an A2 and spend the year learning and adjusting to the firm/office/practice culture. Remember that once you’re a senior you’ll be evaluated against other seniors and you’ll never regain that first impression. In the scheme of a career, another year is not much (and pay differential for a year) in order to buy adjustment time and learning opportunities. Better in the long run to stand out as an A2 and make sure you have a support system than to be an underperforming S1 who really just didn’t have a chance to get situated. But also honestly, might be difficult in the current situation in general either way.

Gotcha. Yeah I would’ve tried to come in at A2 now. Corona made it really difficult with hiring freezes and what not. Great advice though. Definitely something to consider.

55-65

Thanks!

That seems pretty accurate to me

Thanks for confirming. In terms of getting to B4, how likely is it to make Senior with two busy seasons at a mid tier? Just trying to plan out the next few years.
