It's a tough question and I've wondered myself...if it's only money, it's hard to answer. You can say "pwc is great, but I have friends at this firm, which spoke to the great culture and I've read how much ur investing in area xyz and that made me very interested and know I can have long term growth here"

like

1. Culture
2. bureaucracy
3. No fun working with restricted entities
4. Hard to carve your own path when staffed in random projects
5. You want to specialize vs be generalist (maybe?)

You should know the answer. Be honest.

Just be honest. Isn't that the whole point of an exit interview? Don't diss the firm of course coz you don't want to burn any bridges but tell them what doesn't go with your interests, ideas and personality.

Maybe say something about a more diverse project pipeline or a pipeline in general.

Highly doubtful they would know people you allude to PWC7, but if I am interviewing you and you respond to this question by name dropping I would be concerned.

Why do you want to leave?

Then once you know... say that

Short term job hopping is a red flag when I'm presented a resume of a potential candidate

op- A2 has the perfect answer. Use that one if you can and some of the other ones are really good as well. I say go for it!

whatever you do dont bad talk individuals at your current firm, your interviewer might know the people you allude to, and it makes you look untrustworthy (cuz for all they know you might leave there in 9 mos too). focus on the positives of the new place rather than the negatives of the old

Currently at a midsize firm (2 yrs experience) making decent comp but certainly not market. I work in a very specialized practice group, and 1 of my 2 partners is so toxic.

Currently a 1L at a tier 4 law school. Top 10% of my class and can’t seem to find a summer internship. I’ve applied to big firms which I knew were long shots, but also haven’t had luck with small firms either. Also have a couple years of big4 consulting experience which I thought would help in terms of getting interviews. Is there anything I should be doing? It’s starting to get pretty frustrating and I’m worried I won’t find anything for this summer.
