To stay at the firm as long as I humanely can.
How long do you expect to? Do you expect to be forced out or lateral out somewhere of your own accord?
I don't want to be cocky, but I seriously think that I'm about as talented and competent enough to make it to the absolute last step before getting passed over for partnership (which is generally around senior associate), so I expect to last around 8 years before getting "pushed out." But general consensus is that I can stay put for a lot longer without being a partner. I don't actually know if I'd opt for that, so if something more lucrative and with a better work/life balance comes along then, I'd strongly consider it.
