I'm not in NYC so not sure on salary differential but the other reqs are the same across offices. 1650 client chargeable, $5k bonus per additional 50 hrs up to $30k. Pro bono doesn't count towards minimum but does towards fuzzier merit bonus.

Gate keep away. The whole point of the model is not to pay or demand from us like associates to reduce client costs, so of course it doesn't sound like biglaw. First year assocs in primary mkts make $180k/2000 hrs to bonus, we're well over 1500 attorneys globally, I bill 6-7 hours a day on projects I'm proud of, go home, and turn my phone off most weekends. 🤷‍♀️ Not doing this forever but it's not a bad gig.

Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
