Hi and welcome 👋 I’ve been here less than a year but happy to answer questions if you have anything specific.

Feel free to DM me OP. Happy to help. It can be a challenge particularly now with WFH.

Share the advice and avoid getting slammed with DMs )) I get the impression that without face to face networking it's like our SDs and MDs forgot how to bring in business

Echo question on which BU? I find dynamics to be very different in each service line I’ve interacted with

Feel free to DM. I'm in CPI East.

Sink or swim culture in restructuring. Incompetent people get pushed out while elite players can rise through ranks as fast as they mature skill wise

They’re all important. Being close friends with your team is crucial in my opinion

Which group?

Each group is different so let us know which group you’re in!

Hi, I’m going to PM you now. Welcome to the firm!

From my memory—do not expect operations to staff you. Go knock on MD doors and meet the SDs to get on projects. Otherwise you’ll sit on the bench until they give you your performance review

I have several law school classmates at this new firm so will obv ask them.
