Great brand, very solid deal flow. Comp is far below market but will get co-invest from year 1 to make up for it. Sweatshop / challenging lifestyle. Plenty of opportunity to stay past associate as a high performer. Have two close friends who work there at VP / Assoc level

How far below market are we talking?

Sorry sorry got the counting on my 0s wrong :) I meant 7 figures. But 9 figures is attainable for the top MDs/founders of successful funds

Why is the burnout/always working culture in public accounting so accepted? Why don’t these firms hire more people to staff the clients so we can have normal hours as well? How have accountants collectively not pushed back for 40 hour weeks year round? It seems like now is the time because public accounting is being exposed as you can see everyone leaving for industry for this reason.

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.

As a member of the bar, it is unfortunate some of the fellow lawyers abuse their position by threatening non-lawyers who find a concept of litigation too intimidating. A family member was trying to rent out an apartment and received multiple offers. One of the prospective renters is now threatening to sue unless they get paid for a month worth of rent or they actually get the apt. No paper signed, but they tried to make it sound like they actually had a meritorious case using lawyer status.

I work at an association where they have to report the top 10 highly paid employees. Saw that my peer w/ same years of experience is making $70k more than me. I wish I had never seen this information-it has put a horrible twist in my gut and a lot of resentment. Before seeing this info, I had asked my boss for a raise based on the success I've had over the past 8 years but have only gotten 4% bump per year. What can I reasonably ask/expect ? 20%? Do I mention the disparity if boss lowballs?
