Word is it was in major decline but seems to have bounced back gloriously over covid which isn't unexpected given the vc surge. Not sure if that is true either but have seen it on forums/reddit. Regardless, Fenwick and Cooley have much better cultures so there is basically no compelling reason to work at WSGR when you can be at one of the other two.

In what world is Fenwick a step down? As well known though more CA centered.... basically identical financials size adjusted.... they also have the single best active EC VC attorney in the country atm. Cooley, Fenwick, WSGR, and Gunderson are the top for EC VC firms. Believeing Fenwick is a step down from WSGR is deluded, it is also kind of a more popular firm than WSGR and Cooley in it's most targeted marget if UC Berkley bidding is anything yo go by.

Also curious about this but as it relates to the tech trans group

It’s been nearly 2 years but I still get angry when I think about my manager that I had for an entire year who would constantly yell at me and gaslight me. Everyone else on my team said I did great work while she always brought me down. If you gaslight your direct reports with vague feedback and hustle culture energy, you should probably look inward and question why you’re a miserable human.

I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute. I am having discussions with my teachers on ways that I can better support them and the students when remote.

Every interview round of mine has been three week apart from each other. Is this how slowly I should expect google to work if I get an offer and join? I’m so tired of the interview process. Takes forever to figure out if I’m moving to the next round and then forever to schedule the next round. It’s such a frustrating candidate experience.
