Summer Associate

Rising 2L in the Bay Area interested in Corporate and/or Tech Trans. I know it’s taboo asking about work life balance during interviews so hoping for get some insight on some SF/SV firms of interest. Anyone have takes on Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP NorCal, Wilson Sonsini Palo Alto, Morrison & Foerster SF, Perkins Coie SF, Baker McKenzie Palo Alto or Goodwin SF? Want to know what I’m signing up for once I become a junior associate.
