Asking about compensation

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:36 am

When deciding between multiple offers, is it appropriate to ask firms about their compensation structure? NALP only gives access to first-year salaries, and I think starting third year, base salaries can begin changing substantially...

Not OP, but had a similar question. If we're talking an NYC firm that pays market, and that says it's lockstep, does that necessarily mean it follows this scale? Or can the increases be smaller even though it pays market for first years? I'm going to a "smaller" firm, and although I know they may not always match the Cravath bonus, I was wondering whether all Vault firms at least follow this scale for salary. OP's post gives me the opposite impression -- and that was something I wasn't aware of.
