not on track to meet hours, not enough work (one major reason why i want to switch), so probably no bonus. if there is a bonus at play, it's OK (probably 10-15k) --- not desperate. and this isn't biglaw.

theres no point in changing firms IMO bc they are all the same. unless you are going from a big firm to a much smaller firm or to a niche firm. but biglaw to biglaw is pointless.

would go from really respected, small firm with great lawyers to another small, good firm that is still really respected within my niche area. probably with current firm is not enough work and zero work in my preferred practice area. i'd get almost entirely 'my kind of work' in future firm.

on paper it might look like a step down but from practice area to practice area they're pretty much peers. and i can't get any work in that area here anyway (boxed out), so what does it matter how current firm is regarded in that arena. makes sense?
