Just interviewed with a firm and it seems great. I was told that although associates are given an annual billing requirement, the firm focuses more on your “receipts” rather than hours billed. I understood that to mean that the firm is more focused on whether or not your client pays your invoice. Has anyone worked for a firm like this?

I love where I work and what I do. I’m getting oh we value you so much and talk so highly of you. But at the same time my salary is half of what it should be… I just got an offer for double what I make and more flexibility…. There’s just a misconnect on those two.
I have 3.9 years of experience in tcs. Last year i was selected in DCA exam and started receiving elevated incentives. This year i was wrongly given C band and because of that my incentives are now paused. But the thing is my compensation letter still says my ctc is 8lpa. But in my salary slips I'm not receiving according to ctc. Currently I'm serving notice period and told the other company that my ctc is 8lpa. Will there be any issue on bgv when i join next company?

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting. Our clients have such a low bar to clear themselves and are checked out most days. Our work is measured mostly through vanity metrics that don’t consider impact or innovation at all. I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.

I’ve emailed a few recruiters at some NYC agencies I like, but they never get back to me. I wanted to do things the “right way,” but now I’m thinking about bypassing them and reaching out to the CDs and ECDs directly. I care about my career, and staying at my current job won’t help me at all.
Any CDs/ECDs here willing to chat about serious job opportunities?

I recently changed job after 5 years as the sole legal counsel for a start up with no legal mentor to look up to.
I was excited for the change for a few reason, but mainly for the opportunity to learn about what it takes to be an attorney (and affirmation of my past accomplishments).

After reaching out to the general counsel on LinkedIn, I applied for an in-house job a month ago. I didn’t hear anything. A few days ago the general counsel reached out on LinkedIn and said she did not see my application in the mix but was hoping to and asked if I wanted to meet. I said I did apply, indicated I was interested in meeting, and asked if I could send my materials. She said yes and she would send me some times. I sent my materials and haven’t heard a thing. Any idea what is going on?
Anyone have helpful/creative tax strategies given that in-house counsels are typically W-2 salaried employees with hefty tax liabilities?
Haven’t heard back from a recruiter after final round interviews. Said she‘d follow up with the decision by the end of the day today. It’s now almost midnight and nothing. Otherwise outstanding communication throughout the whole process. Bad sign for my candidacy?
12 YOE & seeking first in-house role. Apps have been mostly ignored with a few interviews. Company is finally showing interest - 3000 employees, small legal team, I’d be the 3rd atty. I asked around this company and haven’t heard great things.
Is it better to get into an in-house role (ANY in-house role) and then try to lateral somewhere else, or just wait for a better opportunity? Worried w my YOE it’ll be hard for me to find the right fit, and that having some in-house experience will help.
A criticism of firm attorneys I see re: transition in house is that they don't think like a business person. My SO is in house and I feel like I have a decent sense of the requisite mindset and considerations and how it differs from a firm Would it be tacky to say something to this effect in cover letters or interviews ?
About to start a new role in-house at a startup - after a few years in BigLaw - and wondering if you all can share your insights as to your lifestyles (and how they might compare to prior firm or other roles you’ve had). I think I’m realistic enough to understand it won’t be 9-5 - especially at a startup - but should I generally expect the lifestyle to be as bad as BigLaw, or at least to have late nights (i.e. past 10 pm or so), weekends, and vacations protected? What else is better or worse?
Just got my first in-house paycheck and it's $2k less than my biglaw paycheck ($4k less per month) and thinking I made a huge mistake... the hours are definitely less but the stress is still there and it's a new area of law for me so I constantly feel like im way behind and like an imposter. It's only been a month but I feel so uncomfortable and wondering if I should just go back to my firm? I worked all the time but at least I knew what I was doing and I understood my colleagues!
First week at my new in-house firm (a fund) and overwhelmed and missing my very busy v10. I feel out of my element and like I don't understand anything of what's going on around me. I left as a (new) 5th year so I thought i'd be ok but I think this fund thought I had more experience than I do. I only have one boss and she's so busy it's hard to ask her questions and I feel stupid asking basic questions. Should I go back to my firm? Am panicking a bit, is this normal? Appreciate any advice...
