OW, Alix, and Alvarez fishies: what’s the culture like at your respective firms. Any of them remotely close to the old Booz culture?

The firm definitely feels prestigious. There's an annual soccer tournament and offsites for different practices. Friday culture is office dependent, but the big offices are tons of fun. New York has a weekly happy hour, Boston/Chicago/Dallas have high attendance, a couple of office events per month, and are very social.

Not sure what old Booz culture was like, but almost everyone I've met at OW has been friendly, humble, and hardworking. Very collegial culture.

OW would be the closest to an improvement. Alix has like one (Wo)man or two (Wo)men teams focused on an operational issue (so if you are a people person this could be a negative). At Alvarez they project types would be less strategic (generalization from what I have heard) and comp is waaaaaay lower.

How about the other factors outside of people? Friday culture, office culture? Do you feel like you’re at a prestigious firm? (Just to give you an idea: At Booz, Friday’s were a lot of fun, and everyone always tried to make it to socialize. Every year we had an annual trip the firm paid for.)

Alix doesn’t really have an office culture in North America. That said the whole firm has a similar trip and individual practices also have a group meeting.

No clue on Booz but we have a few partners from there who have done well “meshing”.

This is for CPI. Fun Friday culture in HOU/DAL. Lots of people come in, people go to lunch and visit. Projects are mix of fun but lots are local so people do go home (at a reasonable hour).

Thanks, S1. I’m pretty sure I’ve narrowed in on Alix and OW, my only issue with OW is that I hear comp at manager level is much less. Any idea what the norm is as far as travel for Alix?

I also think I like Alix Exit Opps better as well. Down the line id like to work for a PE firm helping them manage their portfolio of companies. It sounds like this path is most doable through Alix

From its people, the world has so much more cultural richness. None of what is happening in Ukraine is your fault. Be proud of your heritage.

Should I ride out the recession at a law firm until things settle down or take the risk and go back to in house?

Going through a closeout. 50-50 profit share allocation, but my business partner has been using the venture money at their personal piggy bank (hence the breakup). My accountants say because we agreed to 50-50 shares, the leftover money has to be divided equally.

They spent $100k in the last month on random "work stuff" but bought a new car, etc. Now I have to pay for it with less equity return!

Just wanted to rant, I'll probably never go into a partnership again.
