I honestly keep thinking, who does this serve? Everyone's quality of life decreases because of some stupid facetime culture.
LOL same experience except it was the trainees/NQs who were the ones wasting time, going down to buy kopi (beo angmohs at the bar downstairs), drag dinner till damn late..... just so they can send out "3am" emails and moan about how overworked they were.

$4k for NQ at a small firm is pretty common. Knows of a 3PQE working in a small firm for $5k per month (long hours).

not just responding to this specifically. find it a bit troubling that the entire basis of remuneration this whole time is simply "i am lawyer, therefore pay me >4k"

what value >4k is inherent in merely calling urself a lawyer? what does the lawyer contribute to the firm that is worth them paying >4k?

Sure. A starting job in asset management or investment banking at a bulge bracket bank will pay you around S$10k or more.
