I often find myself in a more assistive role, either by my choice or the Partners'. How can I accelerate my progress? What are Partners' and Seniors' expectations from year one associates?

Planning to go through the interview process for both, and wanted some more insight to which company has better WLB. Pay is not a huge factor to me right now as long as it’s decent. Prior to GH, was at a B4. Just feeling burnt out in this field.

I came to my midsized firm from a non-traditional role, haven’t been here a year. Reflecting on my first 200+ hour month, I’m dealing with a nagging feeling that everyone is going to “find out” that I’m basically a first year associate, still in my 20’s and shouldn’t be given the level of work that I’m given. My midyear review was pretty good but I am constantly worrying about whether I’m “faking it” and how to self-assess/advocate well for myself for my year-end review. What do I say?
