I’ve never met anyone from ML who enjoyed it. Probably the most toxic biglaw firm, at least from my circle of friends view.

I enjoyed it while I was there for 2.5 years. A bit stuffy at times and really just about business. Didn’t have much of a relationship with any colleagues but overall my experiences were good

My friend worked in the IP group in a major office and also said the people were horrible and terrible hours (as a summer associate). He ended up getting a full time associate gig at a different firm.

Billable requirements? Remote work?

I am at ML in the NY office. I like my group, but it’s not capital markets and I think it completely depends on who you are working with. 1900 (including pro bono) is firmwide requirement to be bonus eligible. For Corporate and Business Transactions, which is broader practice area in which my group sits, to not be on s—t list you need 2000 true client billables. Expectation is starting this fall people will spend roughly 40 percent of workdays in office but measured over long haul and not weekly.

I know one guy at their LA office. He works hard and puts in a lot of hours, but no more than I do at my mid law gig, making like 65% of what he does. He’s reasonably happy there.

Are you at headquarters? My friends there like it even though it’s high pressure, high billables.

I got an offer but chose another firm over them due to practice area. But the partners were all great (at least in my interview/post-interview).

Can attest to above; I’m also in an Asia office, at least one person leave each month. CBT team and especially capital markets team is high pressure. Turnover rate is notoriously high. I’m probably gonna leave too in a year ngl. On the bright side though, most juniors that leave usually end up at V5 US, big regional or magic circle firms

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
