What’s a reasonable salary range for someone in ATL with 7 YOE and an MBA? Currently at $155k base plus 15% bonus and looking for exit opps but the market is capping Sr. managers off at $170k so not worth it for me to move unless it’s a Director level role but then it’s also hard to break into the Director level from Manager. Should I just stay put? Any thoughts?

Sr Managers in consulting? Or industry?



What’s your focus?

Also can you share what companies
These roles are at. I may have a director role open up for me at my current company and want to make sure I’m fairly paid

MBA from?

Top 20 school

If the $170k is total comp then yea you’re kinda stuck. If it’s base only then that doesn’t seem like an unreasonable increase from $155k. $155k + 15% bonus for a manger in industry seems about right. Exception might be tech or pharma, both of which would be higher.

Will be difficult to move directly from manager to director without moving to a smaller company with title inflation, but then I wouldn’t expect comp to be much different from what you’re seeing for senior managers at larger companies.

Do you have any interest in a local business and technology consulting firm? Happy to talk to you about SEI if you do.

Anyone else who feels that they want to step into the more analytical/executive/operational/financial side of business?

I feel that as a corporate lawyer, you’re mostly doing the necessary details to carry out someone else’s decisions (= EG the boring part of business). The most "strategic" advice you give is perhaps advising on a choice between transaction models.

Would only a law degree and big law transactional experience be sufficient to go into more traditional business roles?


I’m a 3rd year at one of the Big 4 (2020 grad) and have been debating whether it would be wise to lateral to Littler. I want to ultimately be at a v100 law firm with market salary at some point; however, I haven’t had much success with lateraling directly from Big 4 to v100 (Paul Hastings, Morgan Lewis, etc.). Any thoughts on sticking it out until an opportunity arises or lateral to Littler in the interim.

How do you all handle non-billable work on top of meeting your billable targets (assuming no minimum requirement and bonus threshold not an issue)? I.e. If you have two hours of non-billable work to do (but it’s work that can be added to your time sheet like business development) do you still bill ~8 hours of billable work on top of that for a total of 10hrs on your sheet?

I heard from my head that there is a lot of slowdown in VW Germany... There is Hiring freeze, level freeze and all ... And soon that will spillover to india.
