I’m not but we have someone in our Region who is. She’s been with Jones for about 2 years and is doing great. If you want to PM me I can pass along your contact info to her. I don’t think she’s on the app.

I’m her Level Leader and I can tell you she’s doing well. I think she would tell you that Jones provides a lot more options for her clients and a lot more training and support. She loves having her own office and Branch Office Administrator.

I have a friend that left Pru and is now at Jones. He left Pru because he wasn’t making enough to survive. Jones promised him a salary for a few years. Sounds like you are in a different situation though.

It’s only been maybe 4 months so it’s hard to say. He claims everything is going awesome, but people always say that when it’s new. I do know many people that do very well at Jones though.

Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻

Hey guys, I interviewed with Wipro a week back. I had the final HR round and every process is done. But the HR is saying that she is waiting for approval for my salary. Only after that she can release the offer letter. It's been more than a week since that discussion. How much time does it take from final HR interview to getting the offer letter?


What do firms actually look at when evaluating people for partnership? I feel like the majority of partners in my section lack organization, leadership ability, management skills, or even good client management skills. It seems more like they were just the ones that stuck around and kept billing a ton. Is this the norm?


Anyone know what Weil’s average hours are like given that they don’t have billable requirements? A lot of people say big law comparable but I know some people in big law shooting for 2000 and some shooting for 2600 and those are two very different worlds. Was considering applying to a role there but wanted to get a feel for what this really equates to.
