Don't know, but you can usually find a good practice group, and that will make a world of difference.

BigLaw culture is money.

Agreed. It’s probably similar to trying to find “good” culture at a hedge fund.

As A1 said. You find a good practice group (good meaning: constructive feedback, act appreciative when you work late, supportive with taking vacation, personable, etc.) You cannot find: 1) a biglaw firm that has a good culture across 100% practice groups 2) a good culture if you define good culture as like working 9-6 without fail
