Associate Attorney

It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.

    Business Outlook


    It is a firm with strong regional presence and is making big moves in London. An exciting place to be as part of a smaller/ hands-on team with the backing of a strong regional presence.


    IT systems could be better.

      Difficult Interview


      HR gave a particular brief by email, and the interviewers had a complete different style and structure for the interview. A total waste of time for both the interviewers and the candidate due to unaligned expectations.
