2800 hours? Ffs I hate big law culture

likefunny

Whoever does there pitch decks hands out crack. They are on nearly every single deal I’ve done this year plus most of my friends work on the opposite side of deals with them so I’m like where in the world is Latham not involved? They are great to work with but obviously given the fact that they’re on every deal ever I’m pretty sure they’re all overworked

I work in LW Cap Markets. It's hard work but good work. Great clients, market making deals and the group is about as chill as you can get for such a busy practice. All my supers were incredibly kind and respectful of vacation time. Only required weekend work when absolutely necessary, always willing to teach, great sense of humor and just overall awesome people. That said, 2400-2800 sounds about right for high junior / mid level.

100^ agree with the culture in the group. When I was unassigned I tried to force myself to like capital markets work just so I could work with those people. Alas, it was not meant to be :(

I am not in the cap markets group at Latham but I do a lot of work with them. It is a GREAT group of people - really friendly and collegial. But the hours are brutal. 2400+ is pretty normal, especially this last year.

Are the bonuses the same if you hit 1900+ or do people get above market bonuses if they are a lot higher?

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?
