Small firms in Arkansas (especially rural Arkansas), what would you say is an average salary for a third year associate? Considering asking my boss for a raise, but I don’t want to be out of line.

I have friends in rural TN- they started around 50-60. One of my friends is a 3rd year in rural TN and he is making 75 or something, but gets part of what he brings in- I can try and find the exact comp for you.

How rural? You should probably have an idea of what you’re bringing in at this point. Don’t be afraid to overask. More than likely you’re already exploited

How much do you make now? You make them about 100k a year before anything is deducted for overhead (salary, benefits etx) at 8k brought in a month.

Not practicing in Arkansas but grew up there and somewhat familiar with the market. What’s your practice area? I’d say 80K is a good benchmark plus some bonus depending on whatever you bring in. Little Rock pays too 1st years 80K so I think you ought to get at least that.

Currently in TCS basic is low around 20-25% of your salary.

As per the proposed new wage rules, basic should be 50% of package. So this will eventually increase Gratuity of long timer TCS.

In a case, if my Gratuity stands at 1 Lakh say, with new wage rules it will be 2.5 Lakhs.. Is my understanding correct? Will the company pay from their pocket for this?

Get out of these shit IT corporate world.

Start preparing for SSC CGL(mainly target this exam). There are a hell lot of opportunities if you clear this exam and these jobs provides a lot of job respect in the society.
Even if the salary is 60-70k (starting salary) but the job security and the facilities are simply incomparable with the IT jobs.

Don't waste your time & energy in the ruthless labor market just for money.

Any of you manage WFH / telecommute more than 50% of the time? When I was an associate, you hardly saw the principal/owner. Now that I’m 7 months into partnership, I just started a set up for WFH myself. It’s basic right now, but once fully set up, I don’t see a need to go to the office other than client meetings. But in my area of law (domestic relations/family), even in a pandemic, people love to just stop by. So that’s one of my concerns if I transition to WFH.

Question re: salary. I’m thinking about accepting an offer at a small (4-6 attorneys) transactional firm. I would primarily be working on NDAs for clients.

Does this salary seem low? If so, any advice on what someone in my position should ask for?

I am evaluating an opportunity to join a small firm (4 attorneys plus staff) as an associate but not on salary. Rather, I’d keep a portion of the firm’s collections on matters I work on, and I can choose my rate for my own clients (and would give a portion of those collections back to the firm). Sounds like in time I’d be able to participate in profit sharing program. Curious if others have worked in a similar situation and what pointers you have.

Q for associates in boutique litigation firms: When you’ve drafted a complaint/motion/brief to be filed, do the partners allow you to actually sign the filing in your own name?
