A market-paying job on Symplicity in November? I hope they braced themselves for an application snowstorm.


I'm pretty sure they don't pay market. I thought they dropped market salaries after laying off a bajillion people 18 months ago. Their NALP firm doesn't list salaries anymore.

Cadwalader at least pays market. I'd be pretty surprised if at least Morgan Lewis NY didn't pay market, too. Their drastic cuts in 2008/9 should have freed up the money, but perhaps not. (It's possible that they moved to a "performance-based" compensation scheme, aka pay $145k and then give bonuses that get you to $160k if you bill hours like you're at a V10.)

$145k is pretty sweet in November, since pretty soon the going rate for law students in NYC will be like $80k.

For the MLB position, should we apply separately to each office, or just to our main choice and indicate preference for other offices in the comments section?

The contact for the position on our Symplicity is listed as "kamatangelo@morganlewis.com", which a quick Google search reveals belongs to the firmwide legal recruiting director. http://www.morganlewis.com/bios/kamatangelo

Above poster. Our Symplicity posting asks us to use their LawCruit link to apply, hence my question about applying separately to each office. Anyone know?

Probably sound advice, as firms generally want to see commitment to that market. I disobeyed the advice, however. Upon submitting my resume, I got an auto-email telling me that I had to fill out a proprietary application form (I'm sure you've seen these for other firms), which requires you to select one office and one department (lit, etc.). Do with that info what you will. You could presumably fill out the form twice, I guess.

That's odd. Cadwalader DC has a listing on our school job site that was posted just a few days ago.

Anyone know what's going on with the DC office? I emailed an application last week and never received the email prompting me to apply through the website. I'm assuming they just haven't gotten around to dinging me.
