I’m an associate at a boutique law firm working on complex litigation and regulatory matters. I’ve worked at the same firm as a summer associate and the last three years directly after graduation.

Winter break with little kids in Fort Lauderdale. Yay or nay? Selected mostly because of the easy flight from Chicago.
Some consultants say their expectations of the MBB-life did not come to fruition and were drastically different from reality (i.e., I guess in general and relative to Big4). I wonder how come?
