What year are you? NYC?

Somewhere in the ball park of 250 is reasonable for someone of your experience. Less if they are offering carry participation (rare), potentially more if small legal team and you report directly to GC.

My husband is addicted to video games. We both work full time. As soon as he gets home he heads straight for the PlayStation. He will play from 6PM to 2AM. He then relies on me to wake him up for work at 5AM. You can imagine how that goes…. Our marriage is suffering because we spend no time together. I’ve tried to have conversations with him to lay off the games. He gets mad and says I’m a destroyer of happiness. Marriage therapist/ div lawyers must have had input in these games to secure $!

I strongly believe new hire onboarding should not sit in the HR/People Operations space but should sit in the HR Coordinator/HR Generalist space. As a new hire, they should be able to have a confirmed point of contact especially during their first 90 days and People Ops should not be that point of contact unless there’s system or access issues.

Third-year in BL and just had a second round of interviews for an in-house position. It was surprisingly similar to a law firm callback with no real curveballs.

Frickin, how does that work without you committing malpractice, especially if you’re still a “baby attorney”? By just using lots of qualifiers in your answer? What happens if you get it wrong (hopefully not instant termination)
