No longer Big Law. But formerly PE M&A, and hit 2050 hours the year I took 8 weeks paternity leave.

Looking back, there were a few really bad months, but it’s not particularly hard to hit 2000 and have good WLB (though, that probably means different things for different people…).

2k hours annually. Usually take a week long vacation and then a few long weekends a year. Don't really work on weekends but will work late once/twice a week

Also do this. As a midlevel in lit with excellent managers this is definitely possible. Although sometimes I prefer to work weekends or late nights bc I have ADHD and that just works better for my brain.

1400-1500 a year. Work minimum on weekends. Most work day from 9 to 7. Sometimes come back after dinner to avoid getting up early. Try to take at least a week off a year and some long weekends. Specialty group BL 2nd year. I don’t know if it will stay this way.

P2 - it is not that every day I bill 5 hours while working 10. Some days I bill 10/10 or 13/13. But some days I bill 0.5 and some days 2 but I I still need to be available during reasonable hours. Busy night after a quiet day is often pretty common. When I used to do BK litigation I can block bill a few days on one pleading…not the same for transactional tax. When I started this job one of my partners told me tax associates rarely bill over 1800. But we are just as busy as others billing over 2000. It has been very much true.

Would love to know who has great WLB and gets paid decently well..

Not every big law firm pays market.

I have a friend who meets and exceeds her hours and yearly and takes several vacations a year. She’s in Europe l right now and her billable year ends in September. And she has another week long vacation planned then.

I think her hour requirement is 1950 and she doesn’t work weekends. She’s in litigation at an AmLaw 100 firm.

like

I managed this this year. Basically, Monday through Thursday are very long days. But I typically log off relatively early Friday (think 6-ish), and don’t work most weekends.

uplifting

I honestly don’t know any attorneys that don’t take vacations except maybe the partners and I think they do and just don’t set OOO emails up. I’ve worked at two V10s

P2 - I respect that. But that is why outlook has two versions of out of office emails, to people inside your organization and outside.

I lateraled to immigration law for a nonprofit. The pay is crap (very low 6 figures in HCOL), but I was getting mental health issues and I had to. I have no billables, do 9-5, mostly from home, weekends and after 5 are absolutely sacred, and 6 weeks PTO. I did the grind for the dough, but my mind couldn’t handle it anymore. It was an impulse decision, so I didn’t even look (find) an in-house position. I might switch in the future for some extra cash, but not sure if I can leave this WLB.

smart

I’m about to start at BigLaw with 1950 requirement. ERISA/employee benefits. Following for best practices so I can try to emulate

Anyone have experience with a required on-site final interview for a fully remote job? I'll have already had an interview with the hiring manager and a teammate and a presentation of a case study. So with some of the team being fully remote and the role I'm interviewing for being fully remote I'm not sure what I should prepare for the on-site. I really want the role and want to respect their process but it's hard to justify visiting (across the country) and getting time off my current role.

Do you guys have some tips on how to transition into more of a manager role? Throughout my career, I’ve prided myself on my ability to execute at a high level and “get the job done” so to say. I know that this change is a logical next step in my career, but I’m nervous about handing work off and delegating, as I’m essentially afflicted with the irrational opinion that “I could do the job better.” I know my outlook is flawed, but are there ways I can help build trust in others? Thanks!
