It sounds like a mountain of ovepromising. You’ll get in as a senior associate and are already discussing partnership prospects? Traveling 2 weeks a quarter to bid for the partnership? Is this a well known and respected firm generally? It seems like they’re setting candidates up for disappointment. Are you talking to the firm directly or to a recruiter?

Thank you! Talking to the firm directly but this is what I was fearful of as well. They’re well established in the California market. It’s the head of the group and supposedly he has four associates coming in under the same guise. To me it sounds like they just have too much work and can’t hire and I’m gonna get there and get destroyed hours wiss

If you’re a Democrat would you vote for a Republican, just because now they’re raising taxes, etc?
