Q: I am a first-year associate at a small DC boutique firm. I love my job, my fellow employees and the location. However, after working here for 6 months I am learning that the money I agreed to isn’t stretching as far as I thought it would, especially since the health insurance rates for my family have increased over and above what I was expecting when hired. If things don’t change soon I will have to either look for weekend/evening work or send my wife back to work to help make ends meet.

I feel that I have not been working here long enough to “complain” about salary issues with the partners and have considered looking to a larger firm where the salary and benefits will be more in line with my needs.
