Current Law Students / Re: PLEASE help me decide between 2 firms
« on: October 15, 2008, 02:12:14 PM »
I'd rather not say what city the firms are in.  I guess all I can say is that a) they're not in a major city, b) they're close to a major city, and c) quality of life at all firms in this city is probably better than average.

Both have "no offered/cold offered" only 2 people in the last 10 years.  So there shouldn't be a problem there.

Right now I'm literally 50-50.  Thanks in advance!
*Sorry for repeating this, but I'm really torn and could use all the advice possible.


1.  Both in my location preference.
2.  Both are 50-200 attorneys (the size I'm looking for).
3.  No real preference as far as "vibe" or cooler/nicer people.
4.  No preference as far as salary.
4.  Firm A is more estbalished, renowned, and prestigious (Vault "Power 500" firm); Firm B is a pretty young firm, less established, but still top 5 in the area.  I'd guess Firm A would look better for the long run.
5.  Firm A offers more practice areas in general, and more practice areas I'm interested in.  Firm B has a couple areas I'm interested in, so that's not really a problem.  But I'm thinking Firm A is more stable since Firm B only has 3-4 practice areas. 
6.  The big one in Firm B's favor - much lower hours.  I'm pretty big on having a life outside work.  Based on testimonials and billable hour requirements, I'd work 45-50 at Firm B, and 50-60 at Firm A.
