I only know this is the case for sure for 2 of the B4s (but I don't see why it would differ for the rest), but the usual term is you will be reimbursed if: (1) you are retained, accept the offer and stay for 12 months or (2) you are not retained.

In other words, you will not be reimbursed if you either: (1) reject retention or (2) accept retention but leave within 12 months.

Who are the ones bearing the burnt of the economy and taking the risks of getting retrenched all the time since retrenchment in law firms always work from bottom to top? Who are the ones slogging the early stages of their careers out just to get retrenched? Who are the ones who have to slog for 10-20 years just to pay off the mortgage for a HDB because the boomers get to purchase condos at when houses were still at a decent value?

I’m not saying boomers had it easy at all - for you to have climbed up to this position must have been equally difficult (whether or not you have been good at your work or politics). By no means I’m complaining too - this is how society has been structured and there is no one to blame. It is how it is. However, to slam such a baseless proposition on us all the time, claiming we are a “strawberry generation” or “spoilt brats” is just unthinkable. Every generation has its own struggles, there is no comparison. Hence, by putting out such a proposition, it shows nothing but a clear reflection of your outmoded, non-empathetic, prideful, unkind and of course, self-entitled mentality.

But the ceca has fake qualifications bought from a degree mill which would put even a bona fide KCL grad to shame. And I also see the ceca complaining alot like in the condo security guard scandal.

oh really? because the big 4 websites state that reimbursement only occurs upon acceptance of retention offer and completion of a year as an associate as well, so i thought that’s the norm. in any case, thanks for letting me know!
