"Not suitable for laterals"

Former Employee - Reviewed on May 07, 2018

If you are hiring laterals, value their choice of joining the firm and provide them with equal opportunities and benefit of doubt as the home-grown lawyers.

Pros : The firm has high profile clients and definitely a good place to begin your practice. However, if you are joining as a lateral, be ware! The treatment you receive is completely different from the home-grown lawyers. I have seen few laterals in the M&A/PE department that survived a year!
Cons : They are surprisingly cruel towards the laterals in the M&A/PE department. It feels like a frat house and it is not just the partners but fellow associates as well. It feels like you are constantly trying to be a part of a fraternity.
Approve of the CEO[?] : Yes
Recommend this employer to a friend? : Yes
Business outlook for the next 6 months? : up
Current or former employee? : Former Employee
