Honest answer: Probably none.

Latham has a ton of formal training sessions for juniors and midlevels.

Jenner does this too. I love depo training.

Kirkland is pretty good. Lots of formal training and as much work as you can take… depending on the partner you work for, deals are usually well staffed.

I think this will come down to your group and partners. I lucked out with a couple partners and counsels who are very hands on with training me in the technical stuff and some client relationship building aspects too.

Hey fishes. I have been offered Management Consultant role with CTC break up in terms of JB, RB, fixed and variable. So is the fixed amount my gross salary without any other deduction except TDS, or will the organisation contribution to PF be also deducted from the fixed component? Also, will claimable components like LTA, mobile bill reimbursement etc. be in addition to this fixed component or will they be included in it?

How do you guys psychologically handle slow periods? I'm in capital markets so the ups and downs are quite extreme. I was in tears a month ago because I couldn't handle giving up every evening and every weekend for two or three months straight; now I have a couple of hours of work a day I'm dragging out. My colleagues tell me to ask for work and make people know I'm available but also to chill out because I should know there's another cycle of endless work coming up, but I find it so difficult!

Two holiday related questions:
1. My firm has a secret holiday candy thing where you can send holiday candy to someone. Two partners sent me, first year, holiday candy and a card. Would the appropriate response be a thank you card that I drop off with their assistants or would it be me dropping by their office? I don’t know the partners and they’re not in my practice group. 2. First year question, do people usually give something to their assistants during the holidays? Context (contd).
