6th year corporate associate at a regional firm and debating between the following options: 1) Staying at my current firm and making partner in about two years. I know I will make partner if I stay. 1800 Billables. I like the idea of being about to bring in clients and see my compensation rise by my own efforts though I realize it's stressful. 2) Switching to a larger firm to increase my compensation for a couple of years. 3) Going in house because I hate the stress of billables.
