Post December 2009, WilmerHale moved to merit-based compensation structure, which is to be phased in through 2012. Till then, salaries at the firm were based on a lockstep system. Now, under the new merit-based system, a larger percentage of each attorney's total compensation will be in the form of individualized bonuses. This will be based on criteria such as firm performance, quality of substantive work, quality of client service, efficiency, productivity, teamwork collegiality and other "citizenship" factors.
Until the new compensation system is fully implemented, associates are required to bill a minimum of 2,000 hours, including pro bono, to receive the base-level bonus.
The firm offers an in-house subsidized cafeteria, regular social gatherings, on-site gyms in Boston and Washington, D.C. offices. Also, subsidized gym memberships in Los Angeles, New York and Palo Alto, emergency childcare are some of the additional benefits.
New associates receive a $5,000 transition stipend, bar review and exam expense reimbursement, and relocation benefits.
In addition to the above-listed benefits WilmerHale offers the following: Alternative Work Arrangements (reduced workload and flextime programs) Bereavement Leave Business Travel Insurance Daily Bicycle Storage Dependent Care Reimbursement Plan Dining Room Facility Domestic Partner - gross up of flex dollars for Same-Sex Domestic Partner Premium In-home Care for Family/Dependent (emergency) Jury Duty/Military Leave Off-site childcare (emergency) On-site Fitness Center Access Paid Holidays Payment of CA, DC, MA, & NY Bar Dues/License Fees Payment of Voluntary Bar Association Memberships Payroll Direct Deposit Prescription Drug Benefits Pre-Tax Parking/Commuter Programs Primary/Secondary Care Giver Leave (includes Parental Leave and Family/Dependent Care Leave listed above) Private Lactation Room Smoke Free Environment *This is only intended to be a summary of the benefits offered at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP.
