I'm in-house in WA and so neither my company nor the state requires me to be licensed in WA. I took the bar in MD and waived into DC so I have those two, neither of which require CLE.
Waiving into WA is as easy as filling out some forms and paying $900, but then I would have CLE requirements and have a 3rd set of bar dues to pay, and the company will only pay one.
The only benefit I can think of is being able to go to court outside of my job, which I would never do since I am not a litigator and it would be malpractice. If it were for me, then no license is needed to be pro se. If I end up wanting to go back to a firm and staying in WA, I can just waive in then and the new employer would foot the bill...
