In addition to a third of their base salary, these folks also get to keep their health insurance fully paid by the firm, as well as up to $12,000 a year to meet student loan payments. A good deal, perhaps, but only for senior lawyers with solid work experience behind them who were looking to transition out of law firm life anyway. It's a bit to hard to be out of the picture for a year, and then come back after chilling out in Asia or wherever and expect to get the same quality of work as someone who chose to stick it out.

True solaris1, but given the choice between $80k + health insurance + student loan payments or the unemployment line, the former is a pretty good deal. _________________ Re:$80,000 for a Year Off? She’ll Take It! (article)   [#permalink] 14 Apr 2009, 03:19
