It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

Can we start naming firms that are expecting associates to go back to the office five days a week with no wfh flexibility? And which firms are allowing associates to wfh with more flexibility post-pandemic? I hoped there would be a change to the general biglaw face time requirement but seems like some firms are going right back to 2019 standards.

Working with Paul (my mentor) on a daily basis. He is teaching me so much about marketing the firm. These are skills that will benefit me in many different roles. I learn something new every day. I am working in a “Law Office” environment, which the exposure benefits me because I am going to school to become a lawyer. I work in a Christian environment. The office atmosphere is pleasant and conducive to me putting forth my best effort. The job I have motivates me to think of creative solutions and is challenging. The people at this firm truly care about their employees and motivate you to be the best in all areas of your life.
None that I can think of.

A medium sized firm with friendly, knowledgeable, honest attorneys who are seeking to really help people that need someone to fight for them. Like working for family, but one that you get along with! A great learning environment that has allowed me to expand my horizons and hone my skills. The Memorial City area is a great location, not too crowded or too far from home. Comfortable environment that is professional, yet seeks to make all our clients feel like coming home to someone you trust. I feel truly blessed to be here!
Bonuses are good, but given in lieu of raises. No HR manager or department to help ensure fair treatment of all employees, handle internal conflicts or to regulate policy. More women than men in the office, which sometimes gives that dysfunctional family feel, but only once in a while.2

The partners truly try to put Christ first in their practice. Bonuses paid regularly. Will make personal loans in the event of family emergencies. Not downtown.
Houston, Texas. Gain weight because someone is always bringing in donuts to tempt you! 20 mile drive to the courthouse when you have a hearing or trial.1

Partners really care about their employees and will help out when there are needs outside of work to be met. Generous bonuses to employees when the firm does well.
large caseloads. Some employees allowed to get away with less effort than others due to lax management.
