Opportunity to pivot from Insurance Defense PI to Plaintiffs-side PI for almost 30k salary bump. If you generally like the people you currently work with would you do it? Obviously no billable hours doing Plaintiffs PI but I cant imagine their work day being any less stressful or the performance demand any less than on the defense side, especially if they are offering more money. Money is def a consideration for the move.

I just switched from defense to plaintiff side. I am busier but not having billables takes a huge load off.

Thank you for that feedback- truly very helpful.

What’s your long term goal?

like

It does come down to your long term vision. Defense side is more stratified but more predictable if you are good. Plaintiff’s side gives you bigger upside and likely more entrepreneurial opportunities. It’s really just where you see yourself, I’ve been on both sides and trials are easier for a plaintiff, IMO, as emotions generally favor the oppressed or wronged — and emotions define the outcomes of most trials.

Emotions like racism and a general dislike of non economic damages? The apt analogy is that for a plaintiff to win you need to hit a grand slam where as the defense can hit a single and win the whole game.

Yes.

Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
