Many are wondering what’s wrong with ClearView. The problem is straightforward, if the way ClearView is organizing a project such that when one analyst or senior analyst (22 to 24 year old) fails at something, stakes are high enough that an project’s fate depends on it, then ClearView is putting way too much responsibility on its Junior staff, not promoting and severely underpaying them. Maybe it’s time ClearView brought in a consulting firm to ease its org problems
I’ve been reading more and more in other financial forums about people refinancing into interest-only mortgages as a means of maximizing cash available for investment. Help me understand the argument for doing this? I’m starting to see it could make a lot of sense for people who 1) have a ton of equity and aren’t worried about the housing market flinching, 2) probably won’t keep their house forever, and 3) already have a high net worth. Thoughts?

Have a coworker who volunteers for work but never ends up doing it. At what point does it make sense to go to the partner to address this? We’re both midlevels, and I’m tired of having to put in even more time every weekend to pick up his slack. If this were a junior, I’d address it with them first, but this is unacceptable from a fifth/sixth year.
Relatively new first year M&A associate. Is it normal for every weekend to be ruined in this practice area?
I have been working very long hours and all weekends since this year started. I really feel like if I don’t take a day or two off i will burn out. I don’t even like the partner i am working for. How can i gently phrase the request for a day off - to avoid the burnout?
Any other litigators secretly hate legal writing? I’ve just gotten senior enough where I rarely do the first draft now, but pretty sure they’ll figure out my weakness at one point.

Thoughts on thank you emails after interviews? Had my interview this afternoon with 3 partners including the head of the corporate group! Should I send one? To the head of the group leading the interview or to all three of them? And should do it by tomorrow I guess? Sooner the better?
I would very much like a more time for leisure, but I don’t want to take a giant leap backwards in terms of where I am in my professional career￼, with 6 years of big law under my belt. I’m a litigator. Help me figure out my next move, fish friends?

Public service announcement: please update your bio. I am in-house counsel and I regularly check bios and/or LinkedIn if you’re working for me or across from me, and I am shocked at how many senior associates and even partners in biglaw have no bio, no representative transactions, etc. You’ve already done the work, show it off! Such an easy way to sell yourself (and such an easy way to leave me wondering if you’re qualified if it’s missing).
I’m considering a lateral offer in lit between a V10 and V50. The V10 has the brand value, but I got the impression that I would just be another cog in the machine there. The V50 is similarly well regarded in my specific practice area as the V10, and I do think if I want to try to make partner I should go to the V50. Does brand value particularly matter? I’m coming from a V50, and only considering government or staying at the firm.
Any insight into Perkins Coie NY? I’ve heard good things about the culture of the Seattle office. Does anyone know whether this extends to the NY office?
When is it time to leave?
10th year in a relatively specialized field and partnership prospects are fantastic. Problem is, I’m completely fried. I find the work boring. I’m constantly asked to do marketing work for which I receive no billable credit. Because of this, I feel like I’m working at least12 hours a day to bill 7. I work with folks in different time zones, so I’m either up till 3 or up at 3. I sometimes nap while my family has dinner so that I can stay up late working. Time to go?

Bonuses are low and you need to hit 2000. Cravath scale salary. 100% worth it IMO
Don’t remember off the top of my head but very low, like $10-15k
Boston lit here, but I work with NY all the time.
As other person mentioned, salaries are market but bonuses are not. Lifestyle payoff is absolutely worth it in my experience, and others I've talked to in NY agree. Great culture (friendly, genuine, respectful) good training and interesting matters. I expect NY office will continue to grow in terms of headcount, but not faster than it should.
Feel free to DM for more info if you have more specific questions.
I’m NY office (not lit) and second the above
Lateraled to lit within the past year (not NYC). Cravath scale salary for all associate levels, but lower bonuses. All in all, very happy with my move to come here and couldn’t care less about the bonus given the lifestyle trade off. Still pretty busy, but my hours aren’t like what I hear at a lot of other big firms. I haven’t encountered anyone bad yet either. I’m a POC too, for what it’s worth/if you can relate.
Ex-Mintz here (Bos, corp). Great firm, good people, not s sweatshop. Bonuses are different every year but by 7th, they were 50K+ off market.
