My current big law firm gives guaranteed bonuses in December but what happens if, before they’re paid out, I lateral to another big law firm that conditions bonuses on billable hours (that I obviously won’t meet)? (I plan to work through referrals so I won’t get any perks from recruiters.)

New firm should guarantee you bonus for your stub year. Bring it up as part of your package.

If you leave before your end-of-the-year bonus is paid out, you have to ask for a signing bonus. Associate bonuses are for work done in 2020, but a number of firms pay it in January or February of 2021, if you leave before then, you should ask for a signing bonus. It is a mistake not to work with a recruiter.

Hi all,
Wanted to know the range of salary for consultant specialist role? Yoe 10+

Looking to gain an understanding of Demand Gen Manager (marketing) roles and typical salaries. I have 7+ years of experience but also have a very nontraditional background so it seems hard to be considered for director level roles and above.

If anyone has insight into standard salaries for this type of role I’d appreciate the insight. Currently making 100k with stellar benefits.

Received an offer as Engagement Director from Salesforce (CSG, pre sales, L9). Great benefits package, 40% increase in total comp and better WLB.

I do love the people in my practice and current client, but career trajectory has stalled after taking parental leave earlier this year and (yet another) change in leadership.

Realistically, making to Director is 2-3 years away and will require sacrificing time with my family that I am not prepared to give up.

Should I stay or should I go?
