You’re better off going to a V20, coping the non equity “partner” title, then leaving. Top firms kind of screw their associates over, although many people look at a senior associate from WLRK or Cravath etc. as equivalent to a partner at a lower firm.

Doesn’t work like that in practice. V20 (or V50) will let you slave away for years after lateraling.

They're all only 8 years out so still have a shot at equity. Even if they don't, they're still doing very well financially, which is all you have going for yourself and unlike you, all of their comp is cash.

she doesn't have to work very hard for her money, as she'll be the first to tell you. on the other hand, these folks who "still have a shot at equity" will in some/most/all cases be working very very hard. she also probably makes more money, enjoys more job stability, and has better exit options.

Generalization but V6-V20 don't give much of a shit that you were a V5 associate; certainly not for partnership prospects. The move might be more effective if we're talking V5 to the lower half of the V100. An associate leaving a practice group after a few years to try to slightly lateral down into the same practice group at another firm isn't viewed as a prospect but as damaged goods, absent a compelling explanation for the move (my wife became a house flipper on HGTV and we just had to get into the Houston market) or an overriding reason for the hire (we're growing our Sacramento office and we don't care right now who we hire as long as they have the right credentials).

Have you even read rach's annual disclosure?

p 3:

"The cohort of the site continues to grow robustly, fed by acquisitions and retention of students and young professionals in the legal, medical, engineering, academic, and arts/cultural pipelines across a representative cross-section of major cities and urban agglomerations in the United States, Asia, and Europe.(*) As of December 31, 2019, YoY growth of the legal cohort represents the single largest driver of subscriber base expansion, with an estimated increase of ~16.6% (from ~12,000 to ~14,000 over the twelve month reporting period). Among the new legal entrants to the site, the majority of them (n=1,500) are associated with firms within the so-called Vault 50 and, among that group, more than half are professionally active within firms within the Vault 20. These magnitudes and vectors of growth reflect the ongoing salience of the site for an active, engaged, professional community interested in networking, scholarly endeavor, and enrichment activities; the vibrancy of the site poasting culture is a product of their participation."

(*) There is minimal activity in Australia; our internal analyses are unable to determine whether this activity is human or computerized.

yeah you basically have to "luck out" to end up with a decent job 5-10 years out. who the fuck in their right minds want to put up with 3 years of law school, hundreds of thousands in debt, and biglaw drudgery etc. (at best generally?) for that?

i'm inclined to think that if you're smart enough to get into an excellent law school, you're probably smart enough to find a different more reliably rewarding racket of some other kind--even if you don't have the kind of mind that's stem-y enough to easily lead to success in engineering or medicine.
