If you're coming from a big firm that pays top of market ($250+ at your level) then you're going to have to look at in-house roles that offer base+bonus+equity in order to not feel a huge cut--but there's going to be a cut. If you're looking at remote in-house roles that are largely based on LCOL cities, mostly in-office/local folks, your target might be well outside their range. Just to throw some numbers out a typical in-house base salary of $180k base +20% bonus is common (TC $216k). But places with lower base or more bonus and equity are also common. It's a huge range on TC.
If you're looking at startups/silcon Valley in house roles you could easily have low-mid $200k base +bonus putting you much closer to biglaw pay.
It's definitely not going to go up in lock step with firm pay. You might see very modest 2% annual increases.

As always, it depends. Is it a big company? Are you working remotely or there? Did they not give you a range?

Not actively looking here but I understand that it would depend on several factors. Would the salary cut from biglaw be similar to other corporate in-house positions? I was told that it might not be a huge drop in salary for funds counsels (but that it might not go up every year as much as big law scale).

The suspense is KILLING ME! Currently waiting to hear back if I get a job offer or not. It’s dragged out 3 days since wage negotiation. One minute they act like I got the job the next I feel unsure. They told me it could come down to whoever asked for the least amount of money… I stayed within the range they gave. I have a lot of experience and meet all of the qualifications and then some so I asked for the mid-high range. Hopefully it wasn’t too high! Just needed to vent…
