Being given the option to do an exit interview as I leave my firm. Should I do one? I don't plan on airing my real grievances or the extent of them.

Others could potentially benefit down the road if you air your grievances and if you don’t care about the relationship it won’t impact you...

I'd do it to establish rapport with HR and leave on good terms with as many people as possible

Either dont do it or speak in platitudes. The chances of feedback resulting in change is near zero. The only outcome is bridges burned.

You should do it. You don’t have to air all your grievances but they do appreciate (and utilize) the data from exits to make improvements. Just give candid and professional feedback. When I did mine I listed my top 5 grievances and my top 5 things I’ll miss. And I also caveated a lot by saying I understood why things were the way they were but I wanted to try something different.

If you're not going to say anything useful to steer them in a better direction, then just politely decline. "Thank you for offering, but I want to focus on the transition and give that my undivided attention."

Any tips for an associate assigning work to more junior associates? I’m a mid/senior, and have a few clients. I’d like to loop in another associate on one larger matter but I’m getting some resistance. How do I market work to a junior, with the understanding that I can’t simply assign things given my position. I had a pretty diplomatic “no thanks” from one associate that expressed an interest in the practice area and I think there’s anxiety about overextending when there's partners’ work to do.
