Managers/Partners - do you feel it was worth the grind to get where you are today? What kept you focused on the short vs long run comp wise? How do you feel you’re doing compared to coworkers who left along the way? Would you do it over again?

Yes, I feel it is worth it. The fact that most of my friends weren’t 100% satisfied with their jobs confirmed it for me early on. I think we have a unrealistic expectation that we need to love what we do. Sometimes I do love it, but sometimes I hate it. However, I am paid well and I love the hustle so this job is perfect for the life I want to lead. I can prioritize my family when they need it and my work when I need it. Focus on the goals you want for your life long term and that should help getting over the bumps along the way.

I just received a job offer for a position that better aligns with my skills and education. It’s also something I want to do and would get me out of banking, so to speak. The proposed salary offer is only 10% more than what I am making now, though. I currently have a fully remote job and have tons of free time and flexibility. I love my current job as it affords me time with my kids and it’s stress free. The new job is in an office setting and will have more responsibility. Not sure what to do?

(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?

Probably a bit premature but would like some advice. Current in-house sr counsel at 155k +15% bonus in NJ. Company is well established private company.

Thoughts on using an offer (if one comes) as leverage for a raise (which they’re working on) or just making the move to be number 2 attorney at new company
