  1.  

    Net-net positive but initial placement typically determines what you will be working on during your tenure.

    Pros

    The people at AG are really smart and at the analyst level, the camaraderie is unparalleled.

    Cons

    Ones success at AG is highly dependent on things such as initial case placement. During interviews, people at AG will tell you about the "internal labor market" and how this "allows you to work on what interests you." While it is true that there is an internal labor market, it is very difficult to switch practice areas.

    Another issue with AG is that the bonuses do not reflect the amount you work. MBS analysts, for example, work long hours and are expected to be on call at all times. On the other hand, some of the healthcare and healthcare litigation people have extremely tame schedules. Despite the huge differences in the amount these analysts work, their bonuses are typically within $3,000-5,000 of each other.
