I mean, it's not "fair", but never forget that your firm doesn't give a shit about you.

Get in line buddy, I’m being billed as a manager.

If your performing the work of the SA and the work gets done, it doesn’t really matter. It’s actually how you position yourself for a promotion. If it goes on too long, another firm will pay you for it.

Alright. Looks like this happens all the time and is not unusual.

like

It’s very common to be billed for a role, not a title. It gives more staffing and margin flexibility.

It'll depend on the contract. Fixed price is common and you don't need to break down your hours and levels in those. You have a built in argument for promotion next year so just wait it out and you'll be fine.

What is the path to a GC for a senior associate on a TN? I’ve been with my firm since college (2 years) - firm policy is that they initiate the process after a two year tenure (and provided you are senior associate rank, at minimum). Will I be able to pass the PERM evaluation? If not, would things get easier with a subsequent promotion? Or would it be best to lateral to a new firm and start the process there? Sorry, super green when it comes to this
