Why is staff aug frowned upon? I think it’s easy work with decent $

Not sure why this in the partner bowl, but:
It’s not sexy
It’s cheaper work
It’s typically not challenging

I’ve been on staff aug projects that I loved, and been on true consulting projects I’ve hated. Having a blend is great to me,


It doesn’t have the same cost profile. In the long run, if everything was staff aug, we couldn’t sustain the business. We make exceptions ... but consider it a slippery slope.

D2 can you list all of the reasons?


Staff aug is dominated by players who depend on overseas workers to get the work done.

OP: Offshore?

My spouse has made it clear to me that they no longer support me working in biglaw and want me to find a job with more reasonable hours. They were supportive early in my career and when we had one child, but our second was born a couple of years ago and all the additional work they put in at home, the lack of family time and lack of couples time is becoming a big strain on our marriage. We are in a high cost of living city so will have to undergo a major lifestyle change if we forego my biglaw..
