That’s a tough one to answer, I think it’s relative to the industry the companies in. Key thing is you want the market to be growing. ie: cloud services and security

ARR
Product-Market fit
Business Model
Target Audience
Competitors
Value prop (versus comp)
Current merchant base (& logos if applicable)
Churn rate vs renewal rate
Expected path/timeline till exit

After nearly a decade at disorganized small firms where I wore many hats (and sometimes nearly every hat!), I accepted a biglaw offer as part of a team of maybe a dozen Legal Secretaries.

The firm has great Glassdoor reviews and everyone I have spoken to so far seems really happy there. But I am still nervous about the transition straight to biglaw. Any advice?
