Salary

1PQE corp assoc in a small practice. Monthly salary in the high $4k.

I know I’m really underpaid but generally work is ok, I like the partners I work with, but just feel that things aren’t really progressing and I’m hitting the glass ceiling already.

I recently dual qualified and passed QLTS. FCH from a not so reputable school.

Hope to move to Big4/bigger firms in 2023. What salary should I be looking at.

He’s lying. Unless he is at an offshore firm. Otherwise he is probably not even earning half of that but requires validation that he made the right choice career wise so he acts like he is rich.

Due to culture wars in Western countries, true meritocratic selections are often made subordinate to other priorities that are perceived to be more important such as achieving some kind of racial or gender parity to correct for real or perceived past discriminations.
Putting aside the Joe Biden example, diversity is not at odds with meritocracy and is consistent with it. I’m always curious when people claim that the two are at odds. Without exception they are always men who are part of the majority race in a society. The very people who have never really faced structural barriers in their life and career such as being a struggling mother with kids balancing a legal career (even more so single mothers) or facing the hurdle of navigating systems as a minority. No prizes for guessing who these people (men) are on these forums. Just like how QCs for the longest time always were white men who just happened to deserve it on “merit”. “Merit” is a convenient label for the old boys club. If “merit” doesn’t take into account one’s life journey then it means nothing at all. It’s high time we embraced the benefits of diversity in the legal profession at all levels.

Putting aside the Joe Biden example, diversity is NOT at odds with meritocracy. I’m always curious when people claim that to be the case. Without exception the people who write that are those who have never really faced structural barrier in their life and career such as being a struggling mother with kids balancing a legal career (even more so single
mothers) or being from a minority. In the domestic context, those would be men from a particular race. Just like how QCs for the longest time always were white men who just happened to deserve it on “merit”. If “merit” doesn’t take into account one’s life journey then merit means nothing at all.
