Intense. Well paid. Competitive. Demanding.

Extremely cutthroat to elaborate on McK1 as well. You'll see about 15-20% of your hiring cohort flameout in year 1. And culture is going to be alpha male dominated. If people saying and living the "work hard play hard" mantra bothers you, goooooood luck lol

Don't know about Wlb but comp at entry level (out of undergrad) is 150k base + 50k bonus. Maybe a big signing as well

Laid off from AMLaw200 firm due to coronavirus. Had great grades first year of law school. Top of class. Able to secure summer associate position at this firm, led to first year associate position. But I did poorly after the first year of law school and graduated below 3.0 gpa. Do I have a shot at another big law firm? Seems that so many place an emphasis on grades rather than relevant experience. *sigh*
