I’m wondering if a move from a V10 in NYC to another big law firm in a smaller market would actually mean less hours. Is there reallyyyy a difference?

Maybe switch offices within your firm since you are willing to move. At a V10 and our offices have extreme variety in culture between offices.

Can confirm Houston is like unnecessarily terrible

even if you just switch to a lower ranked big law firm satellite office in nyc, it would make a big difference

Depends on firm, practice area and market, but oftentimes yes.

If it’s Houston or Chicago then no

It depends but I think both NYC and V10s are uniquely bad for biglaw

Hi Fishes
I have a offer with a firm consulting firm, looks like it has a very poor wlb and I have only 12 days left in notice period I was waiting on Infosys but somehow got rejected in that, I'm looking for jobs in MNC and that would have 5 days working,and 2 day weekends mandatory off. I have worked more than 15+ hour everyday in current job no weekends which makes me think another 15+ hours everyday with lot of travel might affect me and relations with many close ones.
Advise me please.

Thinking about leaving Accenture and talking with a really small consulting firm that promises flexibility and good WLB. They asked about salary and think I shot myself in the foot as I put a number below my salary. Any way to recover from this? I just am wanting something else to see my wife more and thought if I did something lower it would be in their range and not blow my chances but also don’t want to take a 20% pay-cut.

I'm working in Tata Consultancy for last 9months. I got allocated to Deployment team in Kolkata. I'm a quick learner and it was my mistake to learn everything so quickly. I've been forced to work for 12hrs at least regularly. Also, I've been providing night support daily for production (yes!! Production is happening daily) but I'm not getting any overtime pay. My manager is not responding to my mails regarding my dues. What shall I do?? Will HR help me? I'm demotivated and I want to resign. 😞

I get excited about random things. Is this a natural side effect?
