Me not buying a word of this propaganda on the compensation calls. They do realize who they’re trying to fool, don’t they? We invented smoke and mirrors. Don’t try it with us.

Our firm is rolling out voluntary hour adjustment/reduced salary and although they are saying this program is not mandatory, I feel pressured because we had few nationwide webcasts on this and partners calling personally to discuss. I understand the worst scenario is to be laid off and taking a reduced salary may be better deal for many. However, the salary here is peanut compared to what they pay in US and cost of living is high - I barely manage with the current pay. Starting to get anxious 😟
