McGrigors to cut 40 jobs in UK-wide redundancy round
@EC3 - why is everyone suggesting alternatives to fee earner and support staff redundancy automatically a "soft-in-the-head socialist"?
Surely we are all grown up and are allowed to talk about grown-up things - like the absence of gearing/capacity management?
Would be great to hear a well-thought out argument in favour of the redundancies.
True, partners probably did get "there by hard graft" - but as other posters have pointed out, once you get to be a partner and are responsible for a team, billing 100,000 hours should not really your main focus.
Its an interesting game we are playing (at non-partner level) - try to bill loads of hours, impress the partners, aspire to join the cosy inner club - but then be confronted with the reality ...like equity vs salaried; practice group vs other more lucrative practice group; you are only as good as your last year's billings etc etc
