I Got Stealthed - My 2022 Special Bonus Edition

Post by Anonymous User » Thu Jun 16, 2022 12:55 pm

I got stealthed. Wasn't a surprise. Work started to slow down. Sucks. Will consider outing the firm once I get another job lined up.

1. Practice group and market?
2. Class year?
3. How long had you been slow?
4. How slow are we talking?
5. How'd they tell you and what are they giving you? (Website time, help finding a new spot, etc.)
6. Were you the only one, or is it a bigger cut?

Just to be clear, we’re talking layoffs or not receiving some bonus?

What is the point of this post? Almost reads as a shit post. Give some heauristics for the firm or don't post at all. For all we know, OP could be talking about some five-attorney family law firm in the midwest.

Sorry OP. It would be helpful if people would provide the firm (or Vault range) and the terms of the severance (number of months of base salary, length of time on the website, COBRA continuation, etc.).

I'm sorry that happened to you, OP.

As others have said, would be helpful to know some context. I suspect you are not alone.

OP here. Thanks for all the support. I've got some interviews coming up next week so all hope isn't lost.

Prior firm was V40 and below. Happy to give more detail once I get something lined up.

I was also stealthed this year at a v20. C/o 2016. Not entirely surprised as my hours slowed down considerably before I was given the "talk" but I landed on my feet. Lateral market is still strong from my POV, so hopefully you can find a solid exit OP.

Did you have to take a class year cut, move markets or do anything land that offer? I'm worried about getting stealthed this year as a mid level.

OP here. I moved markets and took a class year cut. Not thrilled about what happened, but hoping interviews turn positive.

Are you the original OP or the the quoted poster? That is good to hear, I was hoping taking those two steps would help.

I'm the quoted poster. I didn't take a year cut and am in NY, stayed in NY.

I was under 100 hours a month for several months.

when you guys got stealthed, did you just get a call and get told the bad news or did it happen in the context of a year end review?

what were your 2021 hours?

Was the talk really explicit like "Time to pack it up", or like a cagey "Not sure how much of a future you have here" with plausible deniability?

I got the cagey version in my last review, then the explicit "time to pack it up" a few months later. I was given a date by which to leave. I will say I wasn't surprised it happened, but was a bit surprised at the timing.

Original OP here. Same as this poster. I got a talk and then a few months later, a date by which to leave. My hours were 150-170 a month. Told I did good work.

150-170 doesn’t seem slow. I don’t understand.

Do y'all think we're seeing the start of layoffs due to the economy? If so, will this start effecting juniors/hiring at all?

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
