  • “While billable and investment hours continue to be ­important, the bonus will not be directly linked to achieving a target number of hours. We’ll weigh a ­number of factors to ensure a balanced and flexible bonus scheme.”
    Really?
    This is code for "instead of giving you an objective, transparent criteria for acheiving a bonus, we are now making the criteria deliberately obscure, so that we have cover when we can't afford / don't want to pay the 40% bonus we previously promised you."

  • Any news on non fee earners, will they get a pay increase too?

  • Or Anonymous it moves from the time at desk measure of productivity, which encourages over charging hours which leads to over billing the client or excessive write offs, to one that encourages actual productivity.

  • I actually quite like this, I have felt for a while that being 'at desk' is not conducive to good working practice.or productivity.

  • Couldn't agree more - the sooner people realise that 'work' and 'billable hours' are not synonymous with one another, the sooner law firms will start becoming more equitable places to work.

  • For those of you who believe this policy will result in less emphasis on billable hours - please this policy shift relates purely to how CC compensates its associates.
    CLIENTS will continued to be billed at hourly rates - until THAT policy changes, I don't see how you can conclude that CC is making this change under a "productivity / quality of life" analysis. So long as CC continues to be paid on an hourly basis, it will continue to demand more hours from its associates.
