I didn’t realize KM roles had a base that high. I would go for it.

Sounds great. I was approached for a KM role a few years ago at a V50 and comp. was not that high.

I don't remember the exact number but it was lower than a first year associate and this was before the last few rounds of pay raises. I had been out of law school about five years, but only had about two and a half years in the practice area.

Serious question. What is a knowledge management role exactly?

I like that i'd be treated as an associate but 1- salary bumps are not as high, 2- bonuses are not as high, 3- work is not as challenging. I do funds work and enjoy it

Insane base figure for KM. No brainer.

Yes I get it. It's so good. but then i'm stuck right ? can I go in house if i'm ever bored ? can I go back to being an associate ? what are my exit options ?

I know of a KM attorney who went back to being an associate. I think it would depends on the group/firm.

If we have good, free healthcare through spouse’s job (military), is it still worth it to pay for a high deductible plan through my job to get the benefit of an HSA? For context, we are a family of three. The cost of the health care plan just for myself would be $20/paycheck every two weeks (or about $520/year). Cost to add husband or child to the plan is over $200/paycheck (so I know that’s not an option). My thought is it’s not worth it to pay for the plan, but is there another pt of view?
