Most likely the guy before you was from KCL, you lucky sonofabitch.

OP can you share more details to give better context? How big is the company? What industry? Were you liti or corp trained? What's your current pay?

I'd go for joo toon.

It's not known for being a friendly place to work. That's probably an understatement... but the boss has good rep (and good client base) in certain circles (albeit small). Go there, do your time, learn a lot, get out.

There are no progression, it is not a place you can stay long term.

In the current climate, i'd say yes. It would be difficult to ask for more.

Default insurance/tax/real estate

what do you guys think of specialising in practice areas like insurance/tax/real estate fairly early on in one's career? are they too niche and would it be considerably more difficult to go in-house after exclusively doing such work?

i have seen insurance/tax/real estate in-house roles being advertised from time to time, but they are uncommon. the more common in-house roles require either broad based corp experience or M&A/funds/TMT experience.

Would someone share what would be the average salary for a 7PQE person in an in house role? Does it become more difficult to move in house around that PQE range due to budget constraints?
