Being staff at a law firm is tough. You'll always be a second class citizen and looked at as an expense and not an asset. All my friends in staff roles have always hated it.

Agree with A1. Raises are paltry and there’s always the tension between attorneys and “non-attorneys.”

I clerked for a federal district court judge and am now doing a federal court of appeals clerkship. I have an informal understanding with my old firm that I will return. It’s a small market with only 3-4 other 100+ attorney firms. I liked my old firm and have good relationships with firm leadership. Should I still apply to other firms, to make sure I’m getting fair compensation terms? I’m not particularly interested in working elsewhere but want to make sure I don’t get shortchanged.
