That would be a dream.

Definitely. It’s also weird how people get mad at their fellow lawyers for wanting to have a high salary but work less. If the entire industry shifted to that standard, it would happen. Unfortunately, there will always be try-hards that ruin it for everyone.

A1 - the big 4 consulting firms pay comparable to big law. Currently m+c pay more than first year

There are plenty of jobs with normal pay for normal work. Why shouldn't there be employers where folks get paid more for working more? No one drags anyone into a big law firm against their will.

For $120,000/ year, go right ahead. For BigLaw salaries, that's a big nope, unless you mean collecting on 150 hours per month.

Can someone explain to me why biglaw firms don’t “review up” and have junior/mid level associates evaluate senior associates? I understand partners have no interest in hearing the minions gripe, but wouldn’t it be valuable to know if your senior associates—seeking to enter your partnership are good managers and not complete a**holes? I’ve had so many projects mismanaged by clueless senior associates lately and it seems like juniors/mid levels bear the brunt of it, but there’s no recourse.
