That model might have been sustainable pre-covid but given the shortage of quality junior assocs now, you'd think they'd have wisened up and started treating people better.
Sadly things are not going to change for real until the ready supply of willing associates dries up. Say what you will, the "big 5" branding still has some prestige amongst the target audience of young and impressionable law students/trainees/associates.

Yes with the adjustments earlier this year, think 1PQE for mid-big firms are around the 7k mark. Shook Lin, WKW, TSMP, TKQP etc.. B4 is only a few hundred more to my knowledge. Can anyone corroborate?

So agreed an 8 to 8.5K, closer to 9K even, is well within expectations for lateralling to a Big 4 or DRD.
