I received an offer from a 40+ attorney firm on Friday. Mostly partners, only 4 assocs. It came directly from the mp on video call. There appear to be no HR Person. MP seems like a cool guy. Really liked the 5-6 partners I met. Seem really nicer but most were newer only like 1-2 years at the time and lower level who mostly help out on other partners’ matters. I was visibly excited about offer. Just learned that it’s actually quite a toxic workplace. How/What do I now say when I reject offer?

Has anyone ever been put in a position to decide whether to choose a job where you can make a difference (ie prosecutor, public defender) vs a job that offers you a lot of money (ie enough to take care of your family, parents, etc.)? If so, how did you choose? Any guidance or thoughts from anyone would be helpful😣

Is there typically a grace period to get billable requirements met when starting at a new firm? I started the first week of May. I'm about 90 hours short of a 170 requirement for the month. I have work, but it's big file review type stuff that takes a lot of actual time. Should I be sending out resumes, or killing myself to get these hours in by the 31st? I'm not a new lawyer, but am new to this practice area. They poached me from my last firm.

So the partner threatened to fire me because I don’t usually submit my timesheet daily (and I mean DAILY, he checks everyone’s timesheet at 9AM). I’m thinking about quitting because I think threatening termination for this type of pettiness is BS, and even the strictest firms I’ve worked at had a 72-hour policy. Is this common?
