As some of you readers might know, I was headed down the big firm track last year (2L summer), but I didn’t get offers from my summer firms. It seemed to be financial reasons on their part, but whatever. I’ve got a great job now, working for a fantastic non-profit. I’m pumped!
Even though I didn’t get an offer from Winstead, I am apparently eligible for their retirement and profit sharing plan. Here is part of a letter I just received from them. This is the THIRD profit sharing letter I’ve received, after they told me they didn’t have a spot for me.
Honestly, these letters feel like a slap in the face. It’s like they’re saying, “You can’t work here, but look at our great benefits!” But at the same time, it’s fairly comical.
I think I’ll send them a letter sort-of like this:
I would love to be in your profit sharing plan. Please sign me up. I am looking forward to your shareholders funding my retirement.
Do you guys have any thoughts on this? Maybe you can help me come up with a good letter to send. Then again, maybe I’m being petty.
UPDATE (Mar. 20, 9:45 PM) – I just got another letter about the profit sharing plan. I’m automatically enrolled! This has gotten crazy.
