Covington SA Salary Mistake?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 24, 2018 11:38 pm

I'm an incoming Covington SA and I got an email today from legal recruiting which noted that the SA salary is $3,080 per week. Wondering if this is a typo because the NALP form from summer 2017 says they paid $3,465 per week, which is $180 k prorated. $3,080 is $160 k prorated, so I'm assuming that they just pulled up an old template from 2016 pre-raise, but I just wanted to make sure there isn't anything fishy going on. I don't want to be crass and email recruiting to ask. Thoughts?

Anon because details etc.

Highly, highly likely that it was a mistake. Don't worry.

FWIW, in 2016 Covington initially tried to resist the wave of raises but had to give in. Doubt they're trying to sneak one past everyone after that.

I wonder why firms didn't save money by leaving sas at 160

I guess the savings aren't worth the bad pr from sas whining but lol

My firm pays above market base but paid SAs 180k prorated. Nobody complained, didn't seem reasonable for SAs to complain about that.
