Wondering if anyone knows the bonus structure (to the extent there is one) at K&L Gates? Recently found out I’ll be receiving one for the first time, but not what it will be. I’ve heard before that bonuses are under market, but nothing specific.

The reality is that "discretionary" is really code for a compensation system entirely based on preference, not performance, at K&L Gates. Logic, merit, transparency, and consistency have no place in their decision-making, breeding distrust and apathy among all ranks.


Bonuses vary just like comp, and I understand it varies across offices. The calculation is based on your bonus hours but I’m not sure what other factors apply. From what I’ve heard anecdotally, juniors associates tend to receive smaller bonuses than mid-years or seniors regardless of bonus hour count.

You should know your bonus soon though as part of your compensation change for the year.

Fwiw I’m a junior associate on the west coast

Current comp is $140k in Texas, which is just salary and bonus. Have offer for $200k in California, which includes base, bonus and RSUs for large tech company. With taxes and COL, am I right in basically taking a hit in the short term, with the hope that stocks rise and that I’m gaining in the long term? Obviously risk with that assumption, but curious how others approach these decisions in change in comp structure.

Promoted to SM & received 10% increase in salary in April. Was expecting more. Have a lateral offer for SM at ACN, base is 10% higher, bonus flat vs current but $50k sign on & $50k RSUs is in the offer. Current gig is cushy & lots of WLB, not in my field at all- really not stimulating work & just provide staff aug resources. Worth taking the offer or getting current firm to match somehow? Will I have a target on my back if I accept a counter at current?

Do you count your bonus towards your income when you consider how much to budget for rent? I make $105k base and a up to 50% bonus. I would never factor the whole amount into my salary, but for instance I haven’t spent any of my 2021 bonus (paid in 2022) last year. Is it reasonable to sign a lease based off of my 2022 base + 2021 bonus amount? I understand a bonus isn’t guaranteed but I wouldn’t expect it to be less based on how my company has performed YTD.

Help. I think I’ve reached my limit. My boss/president doesn’t seems to care or show any compassion for the employees or me. Everyone is over worked, tired and constantly combative. The company isn’t competitive with compensation and her response is too bad we aren’t A holding company. She never gets involve to try and help solve issues and acts so holier than the department leads actually running the agency. (Continued in comment)


I have around 4 yrs exp in front end domain.
Good with Es6, React Js, Redux, commerce platforms.
Have leaded teams also.
My expectated salary - 20 lakh or +

What should be my general expectation if I switch now? Is my expectations realistic in terms of market
Would this put me on higher side of risk or being cutoff if cost cutting happens anywhere. Would they think 4 years and 20lkh is not justified.
Just need to know the avg salary scale in market

Please help me decide - which do you think is the best exit opportunity from consulting?

Salesforce: Senior Change Manager - Base $170k, RSU 65k. I would need to relocate to Dallas, no relocation assistance and no sign on bonus

Microsoft: Customer Success Manager - Base $165k, RSU 75k, sign on bonus 30k. The position is local - Washington, DC so no relocation required

I am currently an SC in Human Capital - Change Management. YOE 7 years current base $153k
