Thanks for doing this! Last year it was announced we would see a market correction in salary vs. the other big 4. What we got was underwhelming to say the least. What was the rationale behind this?

And will we see impactful change given the slow acceptance rate of this summer’s interns?

Firm did well last year. Your individual increase depends on how you did, what grid you are in, how your practice did etc. we cannot generalize.

That’s fair but when you compare like for like (aka a Senior Associate with an MBA) vs. the other big 4 our compensation is 8-12% less. Don’t get me wrong - I love working here but at the end of the day you could make a case we are underpaid for the same work

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020.

Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
