Want to get the perspective of younger attorneys. We’re a 4-attorney firm (2 partners, one associate, one OC) looking to add a 5th attorney. I left a mid-sized litigation firm on the East Coast where I was a partner to open my own firm. Decision was driven by quality of life. We are a civil lit firm. We don’t have billing requirements per se. We have expectations, but we’re reasonable - big on flexibility & quality of life. What are young associates looking for when evaluating job opportunities?

In terms of "prestige, etc" how would I compare to my friends if they all do audit or tax and I'm in consulting but not at a b4 firm. Better or worse? I feel like there's more value add in what I do

How long before Jerome Powell and his army of academics lose complete control of the Fed dog and pony show? The time bomb 💣 is ticking.
