Oh yeah from what I hear it’s NOT a good place to work overall

My first/second year salary was 52k at a NYC boutique firm.

Did that even clear minimum wage?

For a lot SE regional firms- 85k plus bonus. Churn em and burn em places

we are very large for ID and i’m in a high COL area but 100k was base for me with 1950 req

Florida- 80k and a bonus that no first year associate or even second year will ever achieve

Bonus is based on how profitable you are. You have to earn 2x your base salary and then whatever else comes in you get a percentage of (10%). Client rates are extremely low (my boss’ biggest client is $130/hr).

Could be much higher if client is $$$

70k, 2000 billables, quarterly bonus structure based on billed hours (post-cut by partners)
