“I’m at a US firm as a trainee. NQ pay is very nice, but trainees are paid the same as the MC and others. Yet at most US shops they’re beasted harder and oftentimes much harder.

NQ retention rates are misleading and probably 50% or more of my cohort, including myself, will have left to go in-house by 2-3PQE anyway.” [Legal Cheek Comments]
