I don’t hear much in the way of redeeming qualities about Dechert’s culture…

Associates are nice but a disproportionate number of mean/difficult partners. Cliquey so work isn’t evenly distributed, especially if you’re a lateral. Would not recommend.

I'm at Dechert in the corporate group. I really enjoy our team, and have found both mentors and friends here. I think our partners are smart and take the time to know you as people, if you give them an opening. And my fellow associates are people I get along with and want to support, definitely not a cut-throat vibe at all. Feel free to DM me with questions.

Would like additional thoughts. 27M soon to be 28. Moved to Chicago from LA ~3 yrs ago. Debating if it’s worth exploring NYC/BOS or if I should go back west. Reasons for wanting to leave Chi due to culture fit. I find it hard to relate to ppl here of all ethnicities. More so, I find it interesting that I’ve been “discriminated” against by Asian Ams out here bc of my tattoos and “Cali Asians are trashy and ghetto”. I don’t think NYC/BOS will have the same issues but wanted more opinions. Thanks!

Rather, what industry has the most people who get so amped they'll go overtime all the time just cause, without an expectation that everyone always grinds in the name of a deliverable they know is trivial. My hunch is tech startups, maybe traders, but idk... Asking consulting bowl cause no one else gets as much cross-industry exposure. And hey, maybe consulting still wins out!

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn.
