Most larger mid-tiers are actually paying at least 7-7.2k for NQs or "1PQEs" (from Jan).

So one would think their 3PQE pay is going to be higher than that.

Have job hopped before due to having bad experiences in small firms (<10)

Currently salary is significantly below market rate. I like the partner I work with but I donít see a future as increments are minimal.

Is asking for 7k-7.5k reasonable?
If successfully clinched a role in b4 + drd, 7.5 is quite low for 3PQE. Thatís the 1 PQE pay scale. Even as a lateral hire, I think asking for 8-8.5 range isnít unreasonable.

i guess mid tier firms are all crap in their own way.

that's a bit like saying it's not a specific local sinkie run SME that you have a problem with, but SMEs in general. Well, yes...cos they're all usually badly run nepotistic fiefdoms.

WongP committed to developing younger lawyers? care to share which team were you part of in WongP?

the prob is tt they're unprofitable messes stuck w bottom feeding clients and outmatched by internationals in every sector of the market.

Heard that WongP Litigation also gave out TCs to second lowers.

How the mighty have fallen, maybe should just have a Big 3, not Big 4, and certainly not Big 5.
