There are lots of bright, shiny objects out there in the form of ever higher salaries. You need to be making smart decisions about them. Your BV Career newsletter is here to help you avoid saying, “I never thought about that.”
If it feels like no one can explain how you make Partner, it’s because there’s no playbook. Even so, there is a framework to help you gauge progress before you leap somewhere else. Big-dollar offers are getting much attention. We’re here to tell you there is another side to that coin. The dollar signs you see are a single element of compensation philosophy. Until you know the whole story—where you are and where you are going—you’re at a disadvantage. We explain. Our video message in this issue talks about how an offer can sometimes be more trouble than it’s worth.
We talk to BV professionals all over the country. Why aren’t we talking to you? Call or email us, in confidence.
