Probably boutique, but make sure that you get a good feel for what the leadership and culture are like. It’s often difficult or impossible to just switch teams at a small place. Also, compare benefits. Some boutiques have astonishingly bad benefits, although many are great.

that makes a lot of sense - thank you!

Boutique if money is the deciding factor but Big 4 if you are also looking to diversify to a different skill set in near future.

Any advice on how best to “pitch” myself when a recruiter asks for an estimate of how many times I’ve drafted specific types of briefs/other motions? I have almost 2 years under my belt, for reference, so not a ton of experience to pull from unfortunately. My job search has been discouraging, and this position would be a dream, so any feedback will be much appreciated.

I’m a fourth-year associate who just got an offer to go in house. My experience is in litigation but I’d be working on more corporate matters, which scares me. But I hate billables and firm culture and the in-house company is a huge company where you can make moves in once you’re there. My salary would be the same but I’d get better benefits and bonus opportunities in house. Plus I’m a mom and will have on-site childcare. Should I be scared that switching from litigation will be boring?
