Compensation is still the most important variable for younger lawyers who are evaluating job offers. But most of them say they’d also be willing to sacrifice some pay for options such as additional free time, a cut in billable hours or a more flexible work schedule, according to a recent survey.

More than half of survey respondents (51.5%) said they would trade a portion of their compensation for more time off, according to a recent report from Major Lindsey & Africa and Above The Law. Nearly that many (47.5%) said they would exchange some of their pay for fewer billable hours, and only slightly fewer (39.5%) said they’d do it for a more flexible work schedule.
