I love being around functional non-dumbs, the money, the status. The hours don't bother me because my wife annoys me and I hate raising my kids, so work is a good excuse not to spend time with my family. My work is interesting and I'm senior enough that I can make up for my slacking off by riding the juniors harder. Any other bros love biglaw?

ding ding ding. At least lawyer bros sometimes tell people not to do a thing for a reason based on substantive knowledge. Middle manager bros just hang out in proximity to a lot of decisions so they can claim credit for those that happen to work out and blame subject matter experts or peers for those that fail. You can watch one of these guys "work" for 6 months and never see him exercise judgement to make a decision or even make a clear recommendation. 100% process, meetings and emails - zero ownership of any concrete action. Meanwhile functional groups like engineering, sales, supply chain, finance, real estate, etc. just run the business as if these guys don't exist.

What on earth is redeeming about the fact that your fellow indentured servants, equally or more miserable, are not painfully stupid? When does this fact actually yield any happiness or joy to you? In between your mind-numbing, boring chatter about work-related matters, do you engage them in stimulating conversation? People in BIGLAW are vastly awful, self-important, willfully delusional faggots who have their own priorities completely out of whack to compensate for their wretched lives' many inadequacies, traumas, etc.,

It’s nice that there can be attractive females at work, though. And it’s hilarious when you realize how much lawyers are brought in and relied upon to just do common sense critical thinking. Like it’s amazing how many times the business people want to do something that arguably creates legal risk but is much more likely to just piss off customers and drive them into the arms of the competition. And when you point this out it’s immediately clear that they all got caught up in group think and/or are just mindlessly following a bad instruction from an uninformed manager who misunderstood basic facts.

And the inverse is just as common with other groups, where they are like “we can’t ever do that because sometimes we might have to do something else” and you point out “let’s just write it to say it will be one or the other and we choose” and their minds are blown that you came up with this.

I also always laugh at how when HR or Finance reorgs the business shrugs but if they like you as their lawyer and you get a chance to move up elsewhere they get pissed and worried that your backfill will be some autistic freak.

Not interacting with dumbs is a double edged sword. Before biglaw I just thought customer/client service was universally shitty and thought nothing of it. Now I demand biglaw associate performance from everything. On the plus side, it does exist (my car salesman who did not even have a college degree was 180 competent, Amex customer service is 180, the one resturant I like is 180), but if an associate can do a compentent brief or agreement, why can’t some idiot get the toppings on my burger right. As a result, I now tend to go to nicer places with 180 customer service.

The problem is it is hit or miss. One five guys is well run, friendly and prompt and never fucks up, the other is complete shit and gets stuff wrong half the time.

If I thought at any point during biglaw that I was on track to make partner I would’ve loved it and killed myself to stay. But it was so blatantly obvious the entire time that I was gone in three years one way or another that I never got in a mindset of belonging there or hoping for acceptance. If I’d been in a better situation I would’ve probably liked it a lot more.

My first firm was a regional are country firm trying to become a legit biglaw firm. It began slow motion imploding within six months after I got there as a first year despite lots of bullshit reassurance to the contrary during OCI, 2L summer and 3L year. It ceased its existence 18 months after I got there and I was not invited to go with the partners and associates in my group that went to a different firm in town. I switched markets and got to my second firm, which was a v25 or so, in the fall of 2007 and was Latham'd in 2009. But on top of that I was pretty clueless/autistic about firm politics and wasn't a particularly good junior associate, so I didn't give myself any real chance to be saved at either place. I don't think I would've lasted more than another year at my first firm if it had been normal. I didn't demonstrate any interest or motivation to be liked or get good at being a securities lawyer because it was boring as shit. I did M&A at second firm, and that was better, but I wasn't gunnerish enough to really get noticed and taken under the wing of anyone who mattered. I might've been able to survive if I had picked the second best firm I got an offer from in 2007 bc they barely laid anyone off in 2009. But I bounced back to a fake boutique that paid like shitlaw in are country in late 2009 and got megacorp inhouse after a year and have hung on for dear life ever since.

Glad you can admit that you're a gunnerfag, but you should have emphasized this more in your OP. Not that your moniker leaves much doubt.

If you're doing well in biglaw, it's actually an awesome place to be.

Everything you do and everywhere you go people are basically singing your praises and showing you obvious respect. Those 100K bonus checks as an associate are awesome as well.

Now if you're one of the people being slowly pushed out, obviously it's a cold and dark and nasty place to be.

right exactly. the praise heaped upon the "chosen" associates is truly ridiculous. that shit can really go to your head if you're not assiduous about remembering the arbitrariness of human perception. in my case my wife helps me out be casually delivering devastating put-downs that cut to the bone on a routine basis. also, my daughter pukes on me regardless of the fact that I saved some European bank $10m in indemnity claims.
