Doesn't anyone see this as a problem? I can't understand why a business/firm would put a 75k hold on anything. Like Saba said.. He could just take the money and still find another job. In fact, if we were so inclined, we could send them this post in an email to HR describing their poor practice in writing.
Thank goodness my practice is recession-proof. : )

My offer was deferred until fall 2010 so after I leave work to study for the bar in May - I'm done. The good news is that I get paid a stipend of $75,000 to sit in a holding pattern for a year. But it still sucks.Let the revelling in my misfortune begin.
I hope you fail the bar and that your offer is rescinded.
I'm going to take my $75K and then also file for unemployment and live on the dole for alap, and Obama's gunna hook me up and cancel my student loan.
As others have said before, this thread nicely illuminates what's wrong with the way the coorporate world handles its money and their shameless attitude about it.

Whining about "only" getting $75,000 is kind of silly
I'm sure most (if not all) people on here would love to get $75,000. If you're sad about it, go to law school.
From an online etiquette guide:"Now, we???ll talk a little about salary etiquette in a broader context. You see, it???s not polite to talk about salaries unless you???re making an offer, receiving one, or negotiating a change in one. Most companies will fire employees who share their compensation details with other employees or discuss them publicly. It???s especially unprofessional to publish those details publicly."Anybody know what firm he works for?Somebody PLEASE forward this thread to them.Saba is like Summer Vacation.....NO CLASS!
Any one here who does not make 150,000 or more a year should start asking for a raise. You know you are worth more than Saba.
