Partner in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals | Washington, DC | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Salary & Benefits Review

Within the last 18 months, the firm has launched a substantially upgraded 401(K) and profit sharing program. The firm has also transitioned to self-insurance for healthcare coverage, which has led to substantial reductions in monthly employee costs.

Entry-level in Economic | Washington, DC | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Salary & Benefits Review

I think the salaries and bonuses are quite favorable. They really try to compensate you for the many extra hours you work. I think some bonuses can very much depend on the opportunities you were or weren't given, which makes it a little unfair.

Entry-level in Financial Services | Washington, DC | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Salary & Benefits Review

The insurance policy is amazing and so inexpensive. It might be cheaper for my parents to switch over to my health care rather than to take it from their employer.

The office fruit and food is an added bonus.

Salary & Benefits Review

Best: Salary, 401k matching

Worst: Absence of any help with childcare difficulties (e.g., when child is sick and can't go to daycare, or nanny is sick; the firm has no benefits to help with such a situation). Would be happy to pay for someone to come in but don't have any ability to contract for such help at any type of reasonable rate, whereas the firm could since it would pool across all the parents in the firm. Many law firms offer this benefit: https://abovethelaw.com/2015/05/biglaw-mommy-pick-your-poison-childcare/ ("many Biglaw firms are taking steps to address the problem of childcare. An increasingly common perk in Biglaw is subsidized backup/emergency childcare, which is offered either in designated childcare centers or in the form of in-home care providers, at extremely low rates for a set number of benefit days, often as many as 5-6 weeks. This is, undeniably, a major benefit.")

Salary & Benefits Review

The firm gives $40 (pre-tax) subsidy for anything related to wellness. This includes gym memberships, exercise classes, races, etc. There's also an automatic vesting for 401k contribution, which is nice.

The firm does not have a steep salary progression from the C1 to Senior consultant level, but standardizes the pay across those levels. Pay starts to differ at the more senior consultant level and is based on performance in role.

The overall bonus structure is given out on an annual basis and calculated on the average work week. That means, you can have a really busy time and a not super busy time within a year and the bonus cancels itself out. However, a new policy initiated this year will compensate people with really busy quarters (>50 hrs/week). The firm also does not build PTO into the bonus structure.

Our salaries and bonuses are very generous. Firm leadership invests in the firm by hosting quarterly practice social events and team lunches, which shows that they value firm culture and relationships.
