Thoughts on Goodwin in London? Culture, hours, whether people actually enjoy working there, how it’s perceived etc. A lot of the posts here are more in relation to the US offices but I’m keen to understand the London offering.

Hours are heavy across all teams. Private equity and tech and life sciences particularly bad. Generally a friendly culture in most teams (one notable exception) but people are very overworked and exhausted at the moment. The chairs of the London office and a handful of other partners have built it from the ground up, who all seem to be genuinely lovely people. However the rapid growth means they haven’t been able to keep the culture intact which was their big selling point a couple of years ago. As with all places some people love it and some are very very sick of working hideous hours. Would recommend if you are lateraling from a UK firm for the cash, and if you’re looking for a US firm with a better culture than some of the others. Reputation is good for funds, tech and life sciences and private equity.

I'm an introverted person, like to keep to myself, focus on work, spend the rest of my time on family, gym etc. I've been told that I need to work on my communication and client relationship building skills. any books I can read? I don't follow pop. culture anymore, no longer actively follow team sports (but sporty myself) as I consider it bread and circus for the masses and don't rly enjoy work drinks... Am I doomed? Personally I am happy and love the work but fear for my career progression.

Hey Folks! I spent the last year and used my bonus to pay off all my credit cards and started an emergency fund. I’m currently about half way to having 6 months of net pay saved. Right now I have the fund evenly split between a “high-yield” (.5%) MM account and a TD brokerage account invested in a in a index fund. My question is would it make more sense to put that brokerage money into a Roth IRA since I could take that principal out in a emergency. Also already maxing out my 401k. Thanks!
