Interviewing with smaller firms and some of them have pretty high partner to associate ratio. For one firm, there’re 5 partners and I will be the only associate for awhile. This is concerning to me (smaller pay, more work, risk of 24/7 availability etc). Any thoughts on pros and cons appreciated!

Next week I’m having my first lateral interview as a junior associate. I’m very nervous because the group with whom I’m interviewing works with life science/tech clients and the attorneys have strong science/tech backgrounds; and I do not. However, I am very, very interested in transitioning to this practice. And I reaaally want this job because it’s at my dream firm. How would you recommend preparing for the lateral interview?

I am currently a PwC senior associate working in IFS (L&D) and am interviewing for a senior advisory learning services role at KPMG. If I were offered the job, I assume there would be a significant pay increase due to moving from an internal role to a client facing one. But what are the other pros/cons of jumping firms/moving from one LoS to another?

I’m currently a few interviews in for a position within industry where I would be working as an associate product manager.

I would obviously scrub any client data/names, but I guess I was wondering if this is a normal request? I feel a little uneasy sending it over even after scrubbing it.
